  • image description 3:57

    Match EQ

    See how the Match EQ is used to capture the target EQ from one track, and the source EQ curve from the track you are working one. The differences between the two are then interpolated to create a new EQ curve, designed to match your source song with that of the target.

  • image description 7:03

    Vintage Compressor

Very good overview, but i expected something a little more in-depth. It's kinda like a reading the manual in video form. I’d echo the previous review, not enough why, too dry.

Groove 3 Training Videos

Hi, This is not just about Ozone 9 Explained but many of the tutorials such as Toontrack Videos, Cubase Videos and guitar lessons and others. As a trainer for years in the Internet Industry, Web Development and Graphics( Photoshop and Illustrator) there is a common method. Most manuals, videos and trainer tutorials show what one can do, how it works, what is in the app's functionality included, where to find the function itself... but the biggest problem is one question never answered. "Why?" Why use that function in that app. All tutorials end in What it does, How to do it, Where to find it. But never Why do that way instead of that other way? Eg. Why use a graphic equalizer to change the drums to clean them in a delicate song, a heavy song, a country song. trainers usually show one track, or a complete song, but not the difference between Rock, Pop, Country etc. Too many musicians don't know why it isn't working for them, even they know what they want to hear. I like the Groove3 tutorials to get the basics, but never really get the "Why?" should I use that particular function's setting. Guitars trainers show players how to play a song's chords, or licks, or different fingerings, but never "Why?" Just my opinion. Thanks

Response from :

Hi there, thanks for your review! As you already know, these software applications are deep. Our Explained series are video manuals, and like regular manuals they cover basic operation and teach you all about their features and functions, and try to get you up and running as fast as possible. For the sake of runtime, we try to separate the two and release more creative type titles that go into the "why's", such as our production and sound design tutorials. Thanks again!

Compendium of information on Izotope 9

I do not own Izotope 9, but I have recently heard very god things about these plugins, enough to dig deeper and have a look - having just viewed this tutorial series, they look wonderful. I am now likely to own them soon. Love this presenter, relaxed, almost effortless style, easy to follow instructions, well explained and on point. Great stuff.

1. When did you start dabbling in music?

I started playing drums in high school at age fourteen. Like most kids my age around then, I was into progressive rock. Genesis, Emerson Lake and Palmer, and Yes. They rocked my world. A few short years later though, my musical life changed. While studying music in college I discovered Charlie Parker, Milt Jackson, Sonny Stitt, and John Coltrane. Milt Jackson spoke to me in such a profound way that it left me no choice but to take up vibraphone.

These great players, along with  drummers like Philly Joe Jones, Max Roach, Art Blakey, and Elvin Jones changed not only the way I thought about drumming, but also music - and by extension, life - as a whole. I realized life was meant to be a creative endeavor. The idea of improvising based on a loose set of guidelines and rules permeated into my psyche even when I wasn't holding a pair of drumsticks or mallets. But if I am going to be perfectly truthful, I have to hold Henry Miller and Woody Allen equally responsible for shaping the way I view and experience the world around me. 

2. What training have you had?

I am currently an Apple certified Logic Pro. Young and cocky, and armed with only a partial University degree, I dropped out of school and  began playing steady commercial hotel engagements and jazz gigs when I could. This went on for many years until I decided it was time to complete my degree - which I ultimately did with a major in Political Science and a minor in music. 

It was at this point that I formed my current band Nightshift. We are going in to our twenty third year now - playing commercial one nighters like weddings, corporate events, etc. Don't turn your nose up at it though - it has allowed me a wonderful quality of life. It gave me the freedom to go back to school and complete a post graduate degree in Communications Studies - all the while supporting myself by playing weddings.

3. When did you get into recording?

It was in this graduate program - in the early nineties - that I found myself drawn to the fledgling emerging universe of hard disc recording and midi sequencing. Based on nothing more than the recommendation of one of my band mates who had an old Atari, I jumped in head first and bought a Mac LC ll, along with a version 1.1 of what was then Notator Logic. I had no idea what I was getting myself into. But, in hindsight, it was a decision of epic importance in my life - shaping my future as much as the music of Milt Jackson and Charlie Parker did fifteen years prior. 

I opened up my own commercial home studio in 1998 and began doing a variety of projects, working on radio jingles, artist CD projects, and whatever came my way. A couple of years later a colleague called me up - desperate. He was working at a post production house and one of the editors had just quit. They were doing audio post for a weekly TV series and needed a Pro Tools editor - and fast! And so, once again, I jumped in head first into what would ultimately open up my world even more - the world of Pro Tools. 

4. People you have worked with/for?

Focusing on Logic, I built up a small but loyal client base and my phone kept ringing for Logic tech support and instruction. Film composers and studio owners all over the city were calling me. Even the music stores were giving out my phone number at this point! This kind of stuff becomes a self fulfilling prophecy. The more of it you do, the more calls you get to keep doing it. At least that's the way it should be!

As my Logic chops kept growing, I was hired by an old buddy of mine, Len Sasso, who was then an associate editor at Electronic Musician magazine, and began writing some columns for them. I had a blast doing them - and really learned to focus and express my thoughts in a concise and clear manner. This lead to a collaboration with LA based composer Terry Michael Huud on the 2006 film called Civic Duty - which was certainly one of the highlights of my professional life as a composer. 

5. Why are you so good at training people?

I wake up every day excited to boot up, and create. Whether it's instructional videos, creating music, working with a studio client, performing with my band, or teaching at the schools - my days are filled with what I love doing. Enriched by the stimulation and creative freedom this modern music making software brings to my life. I bring that excitement and passion to each and every training product I create. My years of experience both using and teaching these programs has taught me the best way to make the user comfortable with these complex programs.

Rated 5.0 out of 5 by from Compendium of information on Izotope 9 I do not own Izotope 9, but I have recently heard very god things about these plugins, enough to dig deeper and have a look - having just viewed this tutorial series, they look wonderful. I am now likely to own them soon. Love this presenter, relaxed, almost effortless style, easy to follow instructions, well explained and on point. Great stuff.

Rated 5.0 out of 5 by from Excellent Video Series I always love Eli's tutorials, and this one is no different. Great, clear, and concise information, it's very clear that he is a highly knowledgeable expert on the subjects he talks about, and I got a lot out of this video series! Mastering is a mystery no more, and Ozone 9 is an incredible and powerful tool for mastering. Overall very happy with this!!

Rated 5.0 out of 5 by from Wow! I am TOTALLY NEW to Music Production and this explained a LOT! I am a complete amateur when it comes to music production and know next-to-nothing. Not anymore! These videos clearly explained everything I did NOT know about mastering. Even though I only understood about 25% of what was discussed, this has given me a real foundation as I explore this software. I can hardly wait to see the other videos (I bought Music Production Suite 3, so I have a long way to go). Cheers!

Rated 5.0 out of 5 by from Up-Grade!! I'm Lost/Found Whenever you upgrade to a new plugin its how does it work and what does it do!! I am fairly competent with audio engineering techniques and situations. So whenever I came across Izotope I said OK all the reviews are great I'll buy it now what. So I push the buttons open up the interface to accomplish mastering. By all means, I was able to get something done and it sounded great and impressed my friends. At the same time, I knew that I had just opened up the interface and was clueless. So I was completely lost, and after watching the series of these videos over Ozone 9 Explained I am now found!!!!

Rated 5.0 out of 5 by from Another great course by Eli I do a lot of online learning, on many platforms, not just Groove3. Hands down Eli Krantzberg is the best I've found anywhere. He's clear, methodical, and (IMO) gives just the right amount of information and demonstration of each feature. All of his courses on Groove3 are consistently great, as is this one.

Rated 2.0 out of 5 by from Not as clear as Neutron 3 Explained The instructions aren't as clear as they should be. I wish the instructor who did Neutron 3 Explained had done this one as well.

Rated 4.5 out of 5 by from I like using Groove 3 learning video's I like using Groove 3 learning video's as they are the best out there for learning to record music and everything to do with your Daw and Computer, but although most teachers are brilliant teachers and speakers some need to talk slightly slower to help us new-be's

Rated 3.0 out of 5 by from Good if deciding to buy or not Not a deep dive for audio savvy persons who already own the product, this series is excellent for someone in the market for a mastering solution. That said, there is also enough content for persons looking for a "quick start guide" on using Ozone. Ironically, there are portions of some tutorials that presume too much knowledge on the part of the novices that these tutorials are obviously targeted on.

Rated 5.0 out of 5 by from VERY SATISFIED. Another great course explained thoroughly. The ins and outs of this intelligent mastering suite is all we need to make competitive music.

Rated 5.0 out of 5 by from Very Helpful! I had recently bought Ozone like a few weeks ago and I'm completely noob to the mastering process. Taking this course really helped me understand what I could do with the Ozone as well as some nice mastering tricks. The content is extremely detailed as the plugin has a lot of stuff. The only negative experience I had was I would wish some parts would be explained and shown in more time. As some things were hard to grasp. But still I can come back and rewatch while doing the actual work I guess. So my review is still a 5 star. Thank you for this great course!

Rated 5.0 out of 5 by from Really Great Teacher ONLY suggestion to the instructor would be to let the music play a second or two longer when showing the changes the plugin modules add. In most examples, he says let's listen to hear the difference, and only place a really short example. A few more seconds to absorb the effect of the changes would help. This is a really small critique for such a great series. Thanks!

Rated 5.0 out of 5 by from If you watch this tutorial, YOU WILL LEARN OZONE 9 quickly and effectively. This tutorial is a gold mine! Ozone 9 is easily explained by a knowledgeable and selfless instructor. The instructor goes into extensive detail while explaining the best usage of the application. Highly recommended for those new to Ozone. It's straight and direct to the point and seems to be directed to the knowledgeable semi-pro and newbie. No fluff or shameful indirect music plugs here. All tutorials should be this way and I hope I can find more like it.

Rated 5.0 out of 5 by from Very Thorough As usual, Eli does a great job going through every feature and option in Ozone 9. He is clearly very knowledgeable and his demeanor is great as is the pace.

Rated 3.5 out of 5 by from Very compact, well explained video packs. Very compact, well explained video packs. Generally more helpful in comparison to the Izotope videos, which should convince especially to buy. The video quality is good, the audio quality of the speaker could be a bit better. Here are some points that could be added: - (more) hints and warnings about the weaknesses of some plug-ins. So a little How-Not instead of just Know-How. - O9 when mastering within CUBASE or another DAW. A chapter on how the I/O section works within a DAW would be great. -Cubase shows CPU overload after loading an O9 user preset (created with the Stanalone version) with many tools, despite a high-performance PC setup. Even when bypassing, the load remains. A recommendation for the max number of plugins within an O9 instance would be good.

Rated 5.0 out of 5 by from Couldn't have explained it better I rarely wrote a review. I have used every version of Ozone. It's not until watching this series that I feel I have a true understanding of it's potential other than its presets (which are great). Eli is an EXCELLENT instructor/ communicator.
