Very Helpful!

I really liked this tutorial series. The tutor has a very relaxed voice and explains things very well. My only criticism is that the volume of the audio examples was lower than the tutor's voice.

Really well explained

I downloaded Izotope's Ozone 7 and was looking for some help getting to know the product. I had previously gotten "Neutron Explained" from Groove 3 and found it pretty useful, so getting "Ozone Explained" was a pretty natural next step. The detail with which Ozone was explained was awesome. I thought Ozone would be a good product, but the tutorial showed me just how powerful it is. I used Ozone to do some mastering shortly after I viewed the videos. I had no problem navigating the GUI, and I used some of techniques I picked up from the videos to subtly sweeten the master. Groove 3 did a great job on this one!

Michael Costa's Usual Excellent Job

Complete, detailed, well organized, easy to follow, clear, lots of helpful tips and guidance, all from a clearly very experienced engineer. Check out his Groove 3 course on Pro Tools Automation too. You wouldn't believe what you don't know about something as straight forward as automation. This guy is awesome.

1. When did you start dabbling in music?

I was classically trained in piano from the age of 7 and had a strong obsession with popular music right throughout my youth. I played keyboards in various rock bands in the mid 80's but found a pronounced leaning towards the technology and computer side of music as samplers and computers became more attainable in the late 80's.

2. What training have you had?

In 1989 I completed my Bachelor of Arts, majoring in Music Technology from La Trobe University in Melbourne, Australia. Much of my tech knowledge in those pre-internet days came from devouring issues of Keyboard, Mix and EM - monthly, without fail.

3. When did you get into recording?

I started getting into recording in 1984 with a Tascam 244 4-track cassette system. In 1989 I moved to a Digidesign Sound Tools II system - a true random access 2 track editor - and that was the beginning of a long association with Digidesign products. I married this hardware up to Opcode's Studio Vision for many years as well as getting in at the ground floor with Pro Tools v1 in 1991. I've been a Pro Tools user since then right up to the current day.

4. People you have worked with/for?

I've been lucky enough to work with a huge cross section of talent within the Australian music scene. Names like: INXS, Little River Band, John Farnham, Kasey Chambers and Richard Clapton. Plus music editing on breakout movies like Shine and Strictly Ballroom with Oscar nominated composer, David Hirschfelder.

5. Why are you so good at training people?

I think I'm good at training because I really love this stuff - I genuinely want to show people how cool these tools are. Even as a fully grown adult, I still find myself getting excited like a little kid about the magic we can do with our systems these days and wondering how far it can go in the years to come. I hope that enthusiasm is contagious!

Rated 4.0 out of 5 by from Great introduction; more focus on v7 would help Having not used Ozone for a few years, I found this a really helpful introduction to the new features and interface. The video is primarily based on version 6, but there are some bits that focus more on version 7 (the most recent one). Overall, it was great value for money, easy to use and I'd recommend to others looking for a refresh about Ozone. My only minor gripe would be to include a bit more on version 7, which would have made it even better!
