    Master Assistant & Referencing

    Master Assistant is a brand new feature within Ozone 8. Using machine learning, Ozone can make some very helpful decisions and give us a great starting point to begin the masting process.

    Next, let's take a look at the EQ module. It can be a surgical tool or a warm fuzzy blanket. You get to pick. We'll also take a look at EQ matching.

    Tonal Balance Control

    Ever wonder how your mix's balance compares to your favorite mix engineer's? Now you can take a look with great detail.

    Dynamic EQ

    This module is a great option when a standard EQ or multi-band compressor isn't quite doing the trick.

    Vintage EQ

    Don't let this module's simplicity fool you. It has a huge warm sound.

    Here we have Ozone's version of a multi-band EQ. It?s beautiful in it's design, features, and sound.

    Vintage Compressor

    Compression can do some magical things within a mix. This compressor drawn upon different analog compressors and their mojo for inspiration.

    Vintage Limiter

    This limiter is based on the famous Fairchild 670 and Ozone's version gives us three flavors to choose from.

    Time to bring out the big guns. This is where iZotope's IRC algorithm gets to shine. Bring up the volume but don't sacrifice your mix.

    This video is dedicated to saturation, four bands of wonderful analog saturation to be exact.

    Spectral Shaper

    If you have ever wanted to surgically remove harsh or problematic frequencies in a very musical way, this module is for you.

    Vintage Tape

    Next, let's take a look at how we can add tape love to our mastering workflow. It can be sweet but it can also bite.

    The last module is all about the stereo field. We can enhance a great mix or help rescue a mix from the mono zone.

    Standalone Application

    We don't need a DAW to use Ozone 8. In fact, there are some great workflows only available in the standalone app.

Ozone 8 Explained® is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 32 .
Rated 4.0 out of 5 by from Helpful. The tutor was knowledgeable. I also watched Eli's tutorial but his was simply inaccessible for newbies. This was easier to follow even though I generally prefer the style of Eli. A major problem however with Groove is that their courses are not dated, and so we never know when a tutorial was made and have to guess based on the actual app version which in my opinion is disingenuous. I found myself wondering what was when, when I needed to get more information as to newer tools within an app.

Rated 4.0 out of 5 by from Overall a very good breakdown presentation of the Ozone 8 release I think that the only thing missing is a final, additional video going through the complete process of mastering a track in detail, perhaps even using examples of differing genres of music. Seeing how an expert actually uses the product is very valuable.
Date published: 2017-11-09
Rated 5.0 out of 5 by from Outstanding overview An outstanding overview of Ozone 8, especially useful as an introduction to some individual modules that I have not explored much on my own. Easy to follow with enough information to get you comfortable with a module prior to diving in on your own material, but without overly prescribing how you "should" use it. Highest recommendation!

Rated 3.5 out of 5 by from Almost all the basics I felt this video did a good job of going through each module of Ozone 8. However, it would have been extremely helpful to have segment that dealt with the actual hands-on use of the tool in an actual mastering situation
Date published: 2017-11-03
Rated 5.0 out of 5 by from In Depth and Informative This has been a great help, following my recent purchase of the plugin, in explaining all the features and functions Ozone 8 has to offer. Elements were explained in clear language by Scottie Dugan and the function demonstrations were relevant to further expanding on the capabilities and uses of the plugin. It has helped to highlight the uses of Ozone 8 not only as a functioning mastering tool, for the less experienced producer, but also as a learning experience. Helping to understand what happens to the audio when processed through different presets or reference material targets. Watch, you'll learn so much about the software from these tutorial videos in a short time frame.

Rated 5.0 out of 5 by from Great Video. Great Video. LOVE love how the Intro is MORE than just an intro and actually gets into and hits the high points. And Ozone 8 is awesome its worth it for the individual Presets on individual modules and referencing alone.
