Ozone 4 brings together seven main mastering processors in one complete system that will give your tracks a finished, professional sound. With the help of the Loudness Maximizer section, you can make your track loud enough without distortion or color in the sound. The eight-band paragraph EQ combines the precision of linear phase with the warmth and character of analog EQs and lets you compare your mix to others. The innovative Multiband Dynamics, Harmonic Exciter and Stereo Imaging instruments add depth and sparkle to your tracks.
All of these modules are combined into a single, powerful interface, making the mastering process more efficient and intuitive. Whether you are a professional or just want to take your creativity to the next level, Ozone will be a complete assistant in the final mastering process.

It’s not finished until Ozone is on it.
The process of mastering ranges from correcting mistakes made in the mix to preparing a recording for target listening environments. Like a final coat of polish, mastering makes the difference between a good sounding mix and a professional sounding master. When you’re ready to master, Ozone is all you need.
Ozone 4 combines seven essential mastering processors into one complete system, letting you give your mixes a finished, full and professional sound. Ozone’s critically acclaimed IRC™ Loudness Maximizer gives you commercial volume and fullness without distorting or coloring your mix. An eight band Paragraphic EQ combines linear phase precision with the warmth and character of analog equalizers and even lets you intelligently match your mix to reference tracks. Innovative Multiband Dynamics, Harmonic Exciter and Stereo Imaging tools add depth and polish to your music.
All of these modules are combined into a single, powerful interface, making the mastering process more efficient and intuitive than ever before. Whether you’re a seasoned professional or simply ready to take your productions to the next level, Ozone is the complete solution you need. Your mix isn’t finished until you put it through Ozone.


New in Ozone 4
Presets
• New Preset Manager with improved workflow. Undock it to a floating window so you can work with presets while tweaking Ozone’s modules
140 professionally designed presets help you get results faster than ever before
MacroPresets—each preset now contains one or more MacroFaders that allow you to quickly tweak a preset’s sound without leaving the preset manager
MacroPreset Editor lets you link multiple parameters from Ozone’s modules to your own custom MacroFaders
Preset Folders help you find the perfect starting point faster, and you can organize your own presets any way you like


Workflow
• Beautifully redesigned graphical user interface with controls and labels that are easier to work with on high-resolution displays
Module Amount Controls allow you to intelligently apply more or less of each module quickly and easily
Global Amount Control lets you dynamically apply more or less of Ozone’s processing with one single control
• Significant optimizations throughout Ozone to reduce CPU usage, especially when making changes to parameters
Automatic Bypass Gain control enables Ozone to match its own effective gain when bypassed letting you A/B processed and unprocessed audio at the same perceived loudness
• Bypassed modules are grayed and display a blinking red “bypass” indicator (optional) to make it easier to see which modules are inactive
Bypass or Solo mid and side channels as you work to hear the effect each module has on the soundstage
Fader Compare—shift click any fader to jump between its current and last value for quick A/B comparisons
• Keyboard shortcuts in Ozone can be partially or fully disabled—useful if Ozone shares shortcut keys with your host application


Paragraphic EQ
Redesigned interface for better workflow
Mid/Side equalization with Bypass/Solo controls and transparent, color coded EQ curve displays
Info Panel can now be docked at the bottom of the EQ display and does not hide the EQ’s controls and spectrum analyzer
EQ nodes are now numbered for easier automation and adjustment
Select and drag multiple EQ nodes to adjust their gain, frequency and Q relative to each other
Significant CPU optimizations—changes to the EQ require less CPU overhead


Mastering Reverb
Mid/Side support for both Plate and Room reverb modes—adjust reverb separately on center and edges of your audio
• Improved metering


IRC Loudness Maximizer
New “Intelligent II” mode offers superior processing quality on transient source material—get loud, full mixes without distortion and pumping


Harmonic Exciter
• New Warm mode produces only even harmonics, crafted to produce less high frequency harmonics leading to a warmer character and adding another unique color to Ozone’s Harmonic Exciter*
Mid/Side processing is available for all algorithms and bands


Multiband Dynamics
Auto gain compensation—automatically sets the makeup gain to compensate for changes in loudness due to dynamics process
Mid/Side support for all bands and meters
Mix Control provides built-in parallel compression
• Includes global controls for all bands as well as separate controls for mid/side in each band


Stereo Imaging
Improved metering including redesigned vectorscope and correlation meter
• Meters can now fade out their history rather than their old infinite hold behavior


Crossover
• New Hybrid Crossover algorithm—combines Analog and Digital methods, offering analog character with perfect reconstruction characteristics
Learn function will evaluate the incoming source material and find natural crossover points automatically
• Significant CPU optimizations—changes to crossover frequencies require less CPU overhead
• The Mute control on each band has been converted to a Solo control for improved workflow
• Crossover cutoff values can be keyed in manually by double-clicking the readouts and typing


Input/Output and Metering
• Complete K-System metering support, as specified in popular publications by Bob Katz
• Completely redesigned Input/Output Meters offer improved ballistics and joint RMS and Peak metering modes
• Meters can detect inter-sample peaks for metering of true analog peak levels
• Gain can be entered numerically by double-clicking the gain readouts
• Linear and non-linear dB scale options
• Selectable metering source—choose between stereo and mid-side meters.



* Note: the Ozone 4 Harmonic Exciter is not the Aphex Aural Exciter covered by US and foreign patents
