Product Description

iZotope's Ozone 5 complete mastering system in a single integrated plug-in includes eight essential mastering tools: Maximizer, Equalizer, Dynamics, Stereo Imaging, Post Equalizer, Harmonic Exciter, Reverb, and Dithering.

Your mix isn't finished until Ozone is on it.

The process of mastering ranges from correcting mistakes made in the mix to preparing a recording for target listening environments. Like a final coat of polish, mastering makes the difference between a good-sounding mix and a professional-sounding master. With Ozone 5, iZotope has delivered the biggest update ever to their critically-acclaimed software mastering system, making it easier than ever for anyone to master their audio simply and efficiently. Setting a industry standard for mastering tools, the Ozone 5 Advanced extends the standard version of Ozone 5 for greater flexibility, precision, and control. Based on feedback and requests gathered from mastering professionals, Ozone 5 Advanced includes exclusive controls and features like the Meter Bridge suite and 6 individual component plug-ins based on Ozone's mastering modules.

Pristine Sound

In Ozone 5, every module has been updated with refined signal processing algorithms to bring you a greater level of mastering quality. The most complete mastering suite available has never sounded better.

Guided by iZotope's expertise in DSP research, Ozone 5 combines the best nuances of both analog and digital worlds:

- Analog-modeled processing combined with linear phase precision
- Flexible sonic capabilities for adding realistic warmth, bite, punch, and space to your mix
- New IRC(TM) III Limiter for louder, fuller masters that preserve crisp transient detail
- Fully-revamped hybrid Reverb module
- Mid/side processing for tailoring the center and the edges of the stereo image separately
- Documentation that helps demystify the mastering process


Optimized Workflow

iZotope has redesigned the Ozone user interface to make it even easier to dial in the professional sound you want. New users can get started right away and experienced Ozone fans will feel right at home.Workflow enhancements allow for finer control while keeping important features right at your fingertips:

- Comprehensive preset manager with over 250 professionally-designed presets
- New per-module presets and intelligent module Amount Controls
- User-definable signal routing and extensive automation support
- CPU-efficient and optimized for today's low-latency DAW environments


Visual Feedback

With Ozone 5, see your mix like never before! A broad variety of updated metering tools provide unprecedented visualizations of how mix elements fit together, guiding both your eyes and your ears to the perfect-sounding master.

Each processing module is complemented with useful spectrums, phase meters, vectorscopes and level histograms. For example, use the Gain Reduction Trace view to help set the compressor's release time, or watch the Correlation Trace to catch instantaneous phase problems. zZounds is an authorized dealer of iZotope products.

Customer Reviews
5 out of 5 (64 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
"It ain't Nashville. But then, nothing is."
Overall: OK, your home studio mixes are not going to sound like they were done in a top Nashville studio with thousands of $$$ invested in outboard gear and a Grammy-winner mastering engineer. (At least not if you have any kind of ear at all.) But that said, this product did very quickly relieve more than 2 years of frustration trying to get my home studio mixes to not suck completely. I tried tons of free VST/AU plugins and trialed several commercial ones. This is better than them. Could be why it's not free and not cheap. Getting discounted from zZounds made me cringe less at the expenditure. So far I'm quite happy that I went with it. You can download a trial version from Izotope and try that before you drop the buck.The presets are a good way to get started because you quickly learn that there's a huge variety of possibilities in this product. They might even be enough for some mixes. To really get it right you're going to have to learn the interface for the various components: EQ, for example, is not simple to tweak. Izotope provides a PDF Guide to Mastering on their site. Study this to learn what to do to get better results than mere presets.There's more to this than just mastering. You can use it on individual tracks or sends. You don't have to use everything it's got... maybe just some EQ or dynamics on tracks. The more you use it, the more CPU you use. Even on just the master track it can hit your CPU pretty hard. Probably not for a wimpy computer.Software installed and worked flawlessly on Mac with my Reaper DAW. It's even there and usable in GarageBand. Can't speak to stability on Windows. Can't speak to the support... haven't needed it.My mixes are almost all acoustic string instruments and vocals, with some occasional drums and horns. 12 tracks would be a big project for me. Almost immediately, Ozone 5 moved me exponentially in the direction of the sound I really want to hear in my mixes. Cleaner, wider, richer, with nice sparkle. What I really want to hear is my music in a top Nashville mastering studio, but I have neither the talent nor the $$ for that. For me and my Popeye the Sailor music ("I yam wot I yam") Ozone 5 is delivering results that I don't cringe when I hear, and which my fans (both of them) think sound great.

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "holy crap"
Sound: Unbelievable sound quality for the price and for the range of improvements it can make in your final mix. The individual components are really useful and sound great on their own, too...for example, the Mastering Reverb is way better than all the cheesy reverbs in Logic Express. Feature: Kind of overwhelming at first, but the presets help you understand the features and how they interact. Ease of Use: You can start from the dozens of presets and get a good-sounding master in about 5 minutes. Quality: Stable, responsive, reasonable CPU usage Value: $200 for this kind of sound is ridiculously cheap. Overall: If you have any interest in making decent-sounding demos or home studio tracks, as I do, then it's pretty indispensable. Dunno what I did without it...
Style of Music: it's all good
