Essential mastering tools at your fingertips
Ozone 6 includes eight powerful modules that help you ace every aspect of the mastering process: Equalizer, multiband Dynamics, Maximizer, multiband Harmonic Exciter, multiband Stereo Imaging, Post Equalizer, and Dithering. Ozone 6 Advanced adds an innovative Dynamic EQ module and Insight – iZotope’s professional metering suite.
Shape your masters with two powerful paragraphic EQs
Ozone 6 gives you not one, but two paragraphic EQs with eight bands of adjustable bell filters and a variety of additional filters including high/lowpass, and high/low shelving. Use the first equalizer for preliminary shaping of your master, then deploy Ozone 6’s Post Equalizer for further EQ fine tuning later in your signal chain. iZotope’s new AnalogMatched EQ curves preserve analog behaviors at high frequencies, for authentically analog-sounding frequency response.
Add punch with multiband Dynamics
Ozone 6’s robust multiband Dynamics module includes compression, limiting, and expansion, letting you easily fine-tune the dynamics of your mixes with independent control for up to four frequency bands. The interactive Threshold control lets you set your thresholds for the Limiter, Compressor, and Gate without diverting your attention from of the all-important gain-reduction meter. Moreover, superimposed input/gain-reduction meters give you additional feedback as you make detailed dynamics adjustments.
Loud-and full-sounding, radio-ready mixes
From the subtle snap of a country ballad rimshot to a slammin’ club track, Ozone’s Maximizer is exactly what you need to juice your recordings with professional loudness and fullness – all without sacrificing a smidge of detail. This powerful tool prevents your master from clipping while dramatically lifting your perceived overall program level, for mixes that pop right out of the speakers.
Make it pop with analog character
The multiband Harmonic Exciter in Ozone 6 rocks new enhancements that lets you infuse your master with the ideal amount of bite or warmth more easily than ever. A choice of Exciter modes lets you easily dial in tube or tape saturation and accentuate even-order harmonics, adding analog character, punch, and sparkle to your project. What’s more, the Harmonic Exciter’s multiband and Mid/Side modes give you a massive range of sonic possibilities across the frequency spectrum and the stereo field.
Tweak your stereo width on a per-band basis
Ozone 6’s multiband Stereo Imaging module allows you to precisely adjust your master’s stereo image and width. As do Ozone’s other multiband modules, Stereo Imaging works with up to four frequency bands, giving you independent per-band control over stereo width. Essential visual feedback for the mastering process is provided by Ozone’s integrated Vectorscope and Correlation Meter, which includes a Polar Vectorscope mode and a Stereo Balance meter.
Optimized conversion and dithering
Mastering a track for CD from a 24-bit source? Ozone 6 gives you the highest-quality reduction algorithms available, letting you effectively convert and dither to 24, 20, 16, 12, or 8 bits. Ozone includes iZotope’s proprietary MBIT+ dither algorithm that minimizes quantization distortion with ultra-low perceived noise, for smooth, quiet conversions with the best-sounding dither possible.
Perfect the soundscape of your finished mixes
A long-time secret weapon of top mastering engineers, Mid/Side processing lets you work independently with the center and the sides of a stereo mix. Ozone 6 makes this powerful technique easier than ever, converting the incoming stereo information into separate mid and side signals. Think about the possibilities! Surgically EQ the mud out of hard-panned guitars while preserving the integrity of the center-panned vocal, snare, and bass drum. Add a touch of exciter just to perimeter instruments. Ozone’s Equalizer, Post Equalizer, Harmonic Exciter, and Dynamics modules all sport Mid/Side modes, and you can also use the Input/Output meters in Mid/Side mode.
Dynamic EQ gives you unprecedented frequency-specific control
A Dynamic EQ is a powerful tool that combines the precision of an equalizer with the musical ballistics of a compressor. Dynamic EQ utilizes the concept of a multiband compressor, but replaces crossover filters with traditional EQ filter shapes. This gives you unprecedented control over the dynamics of particular frequencies of your mix. Best of all, you can process your audio without any artifacts audible to the listener.
Insight takes metering to a new level
Ozone 6 Advanced takes metering to a new level, offering a powerful new soulution for visualizing your mix. Insight, iZotope’s essential metering suite, is included as a separate component plugin fully dedicated to metering.
