Ozone 7 Advanced from iZotope builds on the major updates the company made in Ozone 6, including an improved visual aesthetic for guiding users through every stage of the mastering process. Aside from the fluid workflow, the creative elements of mastering continue to be front and center in this update, allowing users to define their own sound with ease. The advanced version features several vintage modeled processors, a departure from the company's prior emphasis on transparent mastering.

The Vintage Tape module brings the distinctive richness and feel of tape saturation with all the frequency coloration, distortion, and phase effects of tape, while the Vintage Compressor module is a single-band feedback compressor suitable for subtle warming and sweetening effects. Vintage EQ allows for brightening the master, smoothing out heavy low end, and adding body to digital recordings with the musicality and color of Pultec equalizers. Insight, the company's metering suite, is included as a separate component plug-in, while Codec preview provides real-time listening to how a master will sound when rendered with various industry-standard codecs.

The Maximizer, updated for Ozone 7, features a new frequency-specific IRC IV algorithm to deliver transparent mixes with less pumping and distortion. Smooth out an unwieldy mix or tame kick drum peaks without affecting the vocals. Dynamic EQ provides finer control over audio by taking advantage of the precision of an equalizer, with the musical ballistics of a compressor, in one integrated processor.

Two equalizers are included that combine eight bands of adjustable filters with a choice of filter shapes. Each band of dynamics is capable of three types of dynamics processing - limiting, compressing, and expanding, while an exciter module allows for dialing in the right amount of bite or warmth to a master. Precisely adjust the stereo width of an audio file using the four-frequency-band Imager module.

Additional presets have been created with outcome-oriented descriptions. Dithering has been updated and includes a set of bit scopes and DC level meters. The application also functions standalone, with the added enhancement of third party plug-in hosting. Trim and fade controls are provided, along with SRC (sample rate conversion) on import, plus single- and multiple-file export with the company's MBIT+ Dither.

What's New
  • Vintage Tape module brings the distinctive richness and warmth of tape saturation to modern digital recordings with all the frequency coloration, distortion, and phase effects of tape
  • Vintage EQ features the richness, warmth, and color of Pultec equalizers with discrete frequency value selections that allow for boosting and cutting separately but at the same time
  • Vintage Compressor is a single-band compression module for subtle warming and sweetening effects using a program-dependent release
  • Codec Preview allows for listening to how a master will sound using various industry-standard codecs
  • Vintage Limiter - glue a mix together and add character with the analog-sounding final-stage limiting while retaining the ease and precision of digital maximizing
  • Export Formats - specify the file format for export from a variety of compressed or uncompressed popular choices like MP3, WAV, and AAC
  • Upgraded Maximizer features a new algorithm (IRC IV) with multiband and frequency-specific operation
  • Transparent limiting with multiple modes of the IRC (Intelligent Release Control) limiter technology, including the new IRC IV
  • Preserve rhythmic detail while maximizing loudness with Transient Emphasis, which adds smart emphasis to transients
  • Unlink stereo channels to process left and right separately with the Stereo Unlink Control

  • Continuous Bias control allows for precise tuning of frequency and distortion response
  • Mix in even harmonics for warmer saturation, or leave them out for more accurate tape emulation
Vintage Compressor
  • Program-dependent release times keep the compressor's processing transparent, with longer release times for vocals to reduce pumping, and faster release times to keep drums sounding tight and natural
  • Editable high-pass, mid-peak, and high-shelf sidechain filters mimic the nonlinear frequency response of vintage hardware compressors
  • Create unique compression effects not available in traditional hardware
  • Automatic gain compensation provides automatic makeup gain, allowing for easy comparison of a mix with and without dynamics processing applied
Vintage EQ
