The Future of Mastering

As the industry’s most comprehensive mastering suite, Ozone 8 adds to its legacy by introducing new intelligent signal processing like Master Assistant, track referencing, and more. Enhanced to meet demands of the modern mastering workflow, Ozone 8 is your one stop for a competitive, professional master.


Highlights

Master your audio with over fifteen years of audio industry firsts at your fingertips. Enhanced to meet demands of the modern mastering workflow, Ozone 8 is your one stop for a competitive, professional master. With seven essential mastering processors, it’s the smartest version of Ozone yet.

Assistance with control

Master Assistant uses the sonic profile of your audio to help you get to a logical starting point. Because your time is better spent adding your sonic signature, Master Assistant will suggest targets and signal chain and processor settings, so you can get back to what’s most important—adding that personal touch.

Intelligent track referencing

A/B your master against reference tracks directly within any instance of Ozone or its standalone application. Now an integrated process, track referencing is easy, intelligent, and incorporated into Ozone’s workflow. Track referencing in Ozone allows you to load up to 10 tracks and will identify sections of your reference for easy playback like Verse or Chorus, so you can spend less time finding and more time mastering.
 

Perfect for audio engineers, music producers, and hobbyists, Ozone 8 Standard will help you:

  • Create a custom preset with Master Assistant and get your audio to an optimal starting point
  • Create a loud, full master with seven multiband mastering processors: Imager, Maximizer, EQ, Dynamic EQ, Dynamics, Exciter, and Vintage Limiter
  • Have deeper control in Ozone’s Maximizer with new low latency IRC mode, Transient/Sustain Stereo Independence, and Learn Threshold.
  • Apply any saturation mode (Warm, Retro, Tape, Tube, Triode or Dual Triode) to any individual frequency band in the Exciter.
  • Reference tracks and A/B directly within the Ozone workflow, never needing to leave the app
  • Work within your preferred host as a single plug-in, or use Ozone’s standalone application
  • Professionally designed presets for genre, delivery formats, and more
  • Redesigned user interface for an improved mastering experience

Earns the Microfilmmaker Magazine's Award of Superiority

iZotope Ozone is a killer mastering plug-in, and the value of six mastering effects in one plug-in continues to amaze me. It would be well worth your money to buy this program just for the presets, especially if you simply cannot afford to pay an audio engineer to master your film. Simply using the presets with minimal tweaking will place your film in front of so many other independent films. This plug-in would benefit any filmmaker looking to make their work a step above of the rest. Read the full review at Microfilmmaker magazine.
