The newest version of iZotope’s flagship sofware was released back in November 2011 and it cemented the position of iZotope Ozone 5 as an industry standard and arguably, the most advanced yet affordable software mastering plugins available today.
We thought you might like to know that the good folks over at iZotope have put together a 2013 edition of their free ‘Mastering with Ozone’ guide, an 81-page document dedicated to getting the best out of using iZotope’s Ozone 5 software. It combines looking at the basics of mastering, the individual modules of Ozone and some tips from professional engineers and producers are also included for good measure. This really is a must for anyone using Ozone and considering it’s free, if you haven’t downloaded it already, what are you waiting for?
If that wasn’t enought, there’s also a free guide to ‘Dithering with Ozone’ available, a 39 page look at the essential although fairly uninteresting process of dithering. While I’m sure many dithering experts will read this, for the rest of us this handy document demystifies what is a fairly complex and scientific topic.
