iZotope Ozone 9 Advanced Overview.
iZotope Ozone 9 Advanced is software designed for mastering music, providing many modules for the task. The software builds upon the offerings of previous iterations with visual improvements, CPU optimizing, new modules, and new assistive options. The software allows you to create masters of your music in an intuitive, user-friendly manner.
Take the Master Rebalance Module, for instance. With tech borrowed from RX 7, this module intelligently grabs your bass, drums, or vocal parts and brings them up and down in level, depending on your settings. Now, you may not need to contact the mixing engineer when the bass part isn’t loud enough—you can simply raise it up yourself.
Another new offering is the Low End Focus module, which uses proprietary processes to help you secure impact, translation, and a distinct absence of mud in the low end of your masters. Use this module to help the kick and bass play nicely together in a stereo track.
You’ll note that Match EQ has been broken out into its own module. It now sports more controls to help you get the most out of this process in every part of the frequency spectrum.
You’ll find the Vintage mode in the Master Assistant useful, as it applies colorful strokes in the mastering process. Use the traditional Master Assistant to get you to the level you wish as transparently as possible, or choose the Vintage mode if the mix needs some more weight, vibe, or color. Then, tweak from there.
Included with Ozone 9 Advanced is an upgrade to the Tonal Balance Control plug-in. Tonal Balance Control 2 now comes with a far greater number of presets than the first version. It also lets you solo each individual band to home in on frequency issues.
As with the previous version, you’ll find a reference section to load in your favorite referencing tracks. You’ll also find dither options and be able to audition how the master sounds through various lossy codecs.
Other tweaks have been made to existing modules under the hood, including performance enhancements, and, in the case of the Imager module, increased sonic transparency. You can now resize the GUI at will. This being the advanced version, you can break out any module you wish into its own plug-in, so if you only want to use the Master Rebalance function, you needn’t load the whole suite.
The software is compatible with Mac and Windows platforms in AU, VST2, VST3, and AAX formats. It’s now compatible with NKS supported environments as well.
Master Rebalance gives you the final say in a mix, letting you correct and change the levels of instruments without needing the original tracks. Give your vocals a small boost to add presence without affecting the midrange, or eliminate a muddy low end by slightly lowering the bass guitar. Correct weak-sounding drums, saving you from hours of EQ surgery. A well-balanced mix makes any mastering engineer’s job easier. With Master Rebalance, you can nudge your sound in the right direction.
Low End Focus
Low End Focus is your first line of defense against a muddy or blurry low end in a mix. Using new processing designed to enhance bass sounds, this feature brings your low end into better focus and gives you a well-defined foundation for your track. Tame unruly or clashing kick drums and boomy bass guitars without changing the overall impact of your music, or get that extra bit of bass magic to put your track over the finish line. Go in-depth with surgical controls that let you shape your tone and timbre and bring out the best in your low end with no artifacts.
Ozone 9 brings the tone and vibe of your favorite artists to your music with the upgraded EQ Match. With this new module, you can match to any reference track to a precise degree with an EQ that uses over 8000 separate bands to give an accurate point of comparison. New region parameters now give you more control over the end result by letting you choose what parts of the audio to match. Capture a reference from a track in your session, or a reference file loaded into Ozone 9, and save your favorite results as presets for easy access.
Vintage Assistive Technology
The improved Master Assistant uses machine learning to give you a custom preset in seconds. Use the new Vintage mode to quickly add the right combination of color and character with automatic adjustments for Vintage Compressor, EQ, Limiter, and more. Get a solid master in seconds while preparing your music for distribution with CD and streaming targets that intelligently set loudness for you. Or, load a reference track to have Master Assistant match the flavor and intensity of any audio you like. Get a head start on your master with the confidence that your music will sound great on any system.
