The Advanced version of Ozone 6 includes a powerful new Dynamic EQ that lives and breathes with your music, as well as eight component plug-ins and a suite of configurable meters.
Redesigned workflow that brings together the worlds of analogue sound and digital precision in one package. Easy enough for a novice to get started with and deep enough for the pros. Ozone 6 Advanced offers possibilities way beyond previous versions, while iZotope have tweaked the interface to make sure it remains creative and focused on quality results.
Ozone Advanced adds the new Dynamic EQ module and component plug-in, an EQ that lives and breathes with your music. Harness the precision of an equalizer with the musical ballistics of a compressor. Integrated with an intuitive workflow, these processors work in concert to create a valuable mastering tool that excels where traditional EQs fail.
Ozone includes two equalizers that combine eight bands of adjustable filters with a variety of filter shapes to choose from. Use the first EQ for initial shaping of your master, then take advantage of Ozone 6's Post Equalizer for even more shaping later on in your signal chain. The Analog-Matched EQ curves preserve analog behavior at high frequencies, giving Ozone 6 authentic analog frequency response.
Each band of dynamics is capable of three types of dynamics processing: limiting, compressing, and expanding. Easily fine-tune the dynamics of your mixes with independent control for up to four frequency bands. The interactive Threshold control allows you to set threshold points for the Limiter and Compressor stages without taking your eyes off of the gain reduction meter, which provides extra feedback while making your detailed dynamics tweaks.
Ozone's Exciter lets you dial in the right amount of bite or warmth to add to your master. Add analog character with a variety of modes: Easily add tube or tape saturation, accentuate even harmonics, and add punch or sparkle to your project. In addition, multiband and Mid/Side modes give you a huge range of sonic possibilities across the frequency spectrum and the stereo field.
Ozone allows you to precisely adjust stereo width for your master using the Imager module. As with the other multiband modules, the Imager works with up to four frequency bands—providing independent control over stereo width by frequency. An integrated Vectorscope and Correlation Meter give you valuable visual feedback for the mastering process, including Polar vectorscope modes and a Stereo Balance meter.
Ozone's Maximizer is essential for giving your recordings professional loudness and fullness. This powerful tool helps you prevent your master from clipping while dramatically lifting the perceived overall audio level—perfect for any master where you want more loudness without sacrificing crisp detail. Keep the subtle snap of a snare rimshot in a country single, or give a club track incredible impact.
Ozone 6 Advanced takes metering to a new level, offering a convenient way of visualizing your mix. Insight, iZotope's metering suite, is included as a separate component plug-in and fully dedicated to metering.
New In Ozone 6 Advanced
Dynamic EQ Module
Ozone Advanced adds the new Dynamic
EQ module, an EQ that lives and
breathes with your music. Harness the precision of an equalizer with
the musical ballistics of a compressor. Integrated with an intuitive
workflow, these processors work in concert to create a valuable
mastering tool that excels where traditional EQs and compressors fail.
Dynamic EQ Component Plug-in
Ozone 6 Advanced also includes a
component Dynamic EQ plug-in for use throughout your audio editing
software signal chain.
New Analog Hardware-modeled EQ filter shapes
Harness the sonic characteristics of classic EQ designs with new filter
shapes including Baxandall Bass and Treble filters and API-style
Proportional Q filters. Also new to Ozone 6 are Band Shelf filters and
Resonant High and Low shelves.
All digital linear-phase filters are now matched to analog shapes;
however, Surgical Mode allows you to utilize the precision of digital
shapes for extreme cuts with minimum slope.
Variable EQ Phase Control
Digital linear-phase filters now feature per-node variable phase
control for subtly adding phase delay to smooth out boosts that may
Audition changes to your audio by gain-matching bypassed audio to your
Ozone-processed signal for faster and more accurate A/B testing.
Customizable Signal Chain
Host your third-party VST/AU plug-ins in the standalone application.
Then build your mastering signal chain from scratch or load a preset
and add, remove, and swap the order of modules.
Module Gain Meters
Monitor gain-staging across processing modules with Module Gain Meters
that instantly illustrate where you’re boosting and cutting gain across
your signal chain.
Preserve rhythmic detail while maximizing loudness with Transient
Emphasis, which adds smart emphasis to transients by preserving sharp
Diode and Dual Triode Exciter Modes
Modeled after actual hardware circuitry, these Exciter modes offer
vintage saturation from subtle warmth to more pronounced edge.
Add width to narrow or mono recordings without introducing phase
Variable Knee Compression
Get precise control over compression characteristics by choosing
between hard and soft compression.
Dynamics Detection Enhancements
Simulate smoother analog-style compression with both High-Pass and API
Thrust-inspired Tilt filters. Use the True Envelope detection mode for
RMS-style compression (flat frequency response and low distortion)
triggered equally across the frequency spectrum.
All newly designed presets utilize the improvements introduced in Ozone
6 including new Component Plug-in Presets with Ozone Advanced.
Now available as both a plug-in and as a standalone application, Ozone
6 adds a number of forward-thinking features that simplify traditional
mastering workflows, including:
- Automatic color-coded waveform segmentation.
- Tops/tails trims and fades with multiple shape types.
- Third-party plug-in hosting (VST/AU Support).
- Single/all-track export with iZotope SRC (sample rate conversion).
- Auto-adjusted MBIT+ Dither at output.
- Fully contained project folders.
