iZotope's complete mastering system in a single integrated plug-in includes eight essential mastering tools: Maximizer, Equalizer, Multiband Dynamics, Multiband Stereo Imaging, Post Equalizer, Multiband Harmonic Exciter, Reverb, and Dithering.
Ozone 5 Advanced adds seven additional component plug-ins, extended features in every module, and a comprehensive suite of configurable meters.
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, we've delivered the biggest update ever to our critically-acclaimed software mastering system, making it easier than ever for anyone to master their audio simply and efficiently.
Setting a new industry standard for mastering tools, the all-new 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 view and 6 individual component plug-ins based on Ozone's mastering modules. In addition, Ozone 5 Advanced now includes Insight, a dedicated metering plug-in that includes surround sound support and extended features for complying with loudness regulations.
Multiple modes of Intelligent Release Control technology for transparent limiting.
New "Intelligent III" mode provides exceptional handling of transients without pumping or other undesirable limiting side effects.
Stereo link control lets you unlink stereo channels to process left and right separately, and freely adjust between fully linked and independent limiting on both channels.
Predictive limiting of "inter-sample clipping" keeps true analog levels in check.
Adjustable threshold/margin, release and character controls let you fine-tune the Maximizer's response to your source material.
Visual feedback provided through Gain Reduction Trace meters, a loudness histogram, and Mini-Spectrum display.
