    Introduction

    In this video, we introduce some overarching principles of mastering and what we are trying to achieve using Ozone 9.

  • image description 9:06

    Mastering with Master Assistant Pt. 1

    Larry demonstrates using Ozone 's Master Assistant in Modern Mode, and takes a Tropical House style beat and creates a custom mastering preset using Ozone 9's new and improved Master Assistant.

  • image description 6:45

    Mastering with Master Assistant Pt. 2

    In this video, learn to use Ozone 9's Master Assistant in Vintage Mode, using the previous Tropical House style beat, and injects some analogue richness to the track. Finally we match EQ curve and loudness of a reference track.

  • image description 9:17

    Tonal Balance 2

    Larry now covers comparing our master to the thousands of tracks analyzed by iZotope to ensure that we can maximize the potential of our track. We also access an Ozone 9 EQ from within Ozone 9 so we can make appropriate adjustments.

  • image description 5:20

    Referencing

    In this video, we outline Ozone 9's referencing tools, loading in two reference tracks to which we compare our pre-master. We are then able to match the respective volumes by changing a setting in the I/O section of Ozone 9.

    Match EQ

    See how to apply the sonic characteristic of one track to another, giving it a different vibe. We also use a pink noise and -6db reference slope to fine-tune our mix balance.

  • image description 5:33

    Fixing Mix Imbalances with Low End Focus

    In this video, we outline the use of Low End Focus to bring out the low frequency transient information of a kick drum which is being overpowered by a bass part.

  • image description 4:57

    Fixing Mix Imbalances with Master Rebalance

    Discover how to use Master Rebalance to boost a vocal which is sitting too quietly in the mix, and then reduce the volume of a drum part to approach the problem from a different angle. We then fix a Techno track that's lacking low end using the same tool.

  • image description 14:19

    Mastering Country Rock Pt. 1

    In Part one of this video we use a combination of Ozone 9's modules to master a country rock track while also using Master Assistant to create a transparently limited master.

  • image description 6:57

    Mastering Country Rock Pt. 2

    We continue the mastering process by now applying Imaging and Vintage EQ and Vintage Limiting to create a retro vintage vibe. We also analyze the mix using Tonal Balance.

  • image description 12:40

    Mastering a Techno Track Pt. 1

    In this video, we now master a Techno track to get it really loud and in your face, keeping with the genre, by using saturation and parallel compression, as well as discuss some strategies for loudness.

  • image description 7:39

    Mastering a Techno Track Pt. 2

    We continue mastering process by applying Imaging and Parallel compression and EQ to squeeze as much out of the Techno track as possible.

  • image description 14:14

    Mastering a Pop Track Pt. 1

    In this video, we master a pop track using compression to glue things together a bit more, as well as parallel processing to dial in more low mids for punch.

  • image description 4:35

    Mastering a Pop Track Pt. 2

    In the second part of this process, we finish off by creating our limited master and comparing it to the pre-master to gauge the improvements made.

Love watching the real life case studies

It was very helpful to be a fly on the wall and see each step in the chain as it came up. Definitely recommend watching the Ozone 9 Explained course first if you're unfamiliar with Ozone. I got a lot more out this course than I would have if I hadn't.

very useful

Easy to follow, I’ve enjoyed watching the videos, very well organize. I can apply the steps on how to master a song. I have the global picture of the work I need to go through that I can pin point too breezily.

The results from lower compression ratios with lower thresholds was an eye opener for me. Very interesting

Great Stuff!

Just what I needed but more than I can swallow in one viewing. Shouldn't these reviews come after completing the program—not when I stop to "window shop" at other Groove 3 products? Anyway - Great Stuff!

1. When did you start dabbling in music?

I learnt the trumpet and piano around age 12 and then guitar a couple of years later. I played in a few indie bands for a few years until I discovered the turntables and Dj'ing. I then swapped the guitar for the synthesizer and the stage for the Dj booth and the rest is history!

2. What training have you had?

I completed a diploma in sound engineering and music technology from islington Music Workshop in London. I am also level 1 certified in Logic. The most important training I have received though is sitting for hours on end at my studio making music!

3. When did you get into recording?

Recording demos for the indie bands I mentioned earlier. Then recording vocals for my tracks as DEF inc. and laterally Rebel Sonix. I also worked in London studio Rollover in around 2005.

4. People you have worked with/for?

I've remixed Coldplay, Kylie, Roots Manuva and John B. Labels I have released on include Parlaphone, EMI, Fingerlickin, Eight Fx, Quantum, Botchit and Scarper amongst others. I have composed music for Sony Playstation games, Sky tv, J&B Whiskey, Lexus cars and the BBC to name a few. I have produced online tutorial videos and have had a 1 hour production video in Music Techs magazines cover DVD. I have also Dj'ed at events such as Glastonbury festival and Miami WMC and touring extensively all over the world.

5. Why are you so good at training people?

Well hopefully I have a clear and concise training method mixed with a serious passion for making music. I have previously worked for Apple teaching Logic and also regularly lecture on Logic and electronic music production. I also teach the Ministry of Sound DJ academy in London which involves teaching an introduction to Djing as well as in depth seminars on using NI's Traktor and also Serato Scratch Live. As a producer making cutting edge electronic music, I have to remain at the forefront of new sounds and production techniques. I mix my time between different areas of the music industry - production, remixing, DJing and also teaching which allows me to develop all those skills simultaneously - so I can improve my teaching ability whilst also continuing to develop as a producer (something which you never stop doing!)
