Ozone 9 Advanced
future of mastering

mastering, Ozone 9 brings balance to your music with never-before seen
processing for low end, real-time instrument separation, and lightning-fast
workflows powered by machine learning. Find the perfect vibe with an expanded
Master Assistant that knows exactly what you’re going for, whether it’s warm
analog character or transparent loudness for streaming. Talk to more iZotope
plug-ins in your session with Tonal Balance Control and blur the lines between
mixing and mastering. Work faster with improved plug-in performance, smoother
metering, and resizable windows. No more wondering if your music is ready for
primetime—with Ozone 9, the future of mastering is in your hands.
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 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 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 using this
industry-first bass shaping tool. It’s the fastest way to a punchy,
hard-hitting final master.
