While Ozone is primarily a mastering tool, it can also be used on individual tracks while mixing. Again, there are some excellent presets, and I found the various drum treatments to be particularly impressive. Placed across a stereo drum mix, the degree to which a fairly tame drum track can be turned into a raging rock monster is really impressive and would certainly be worth the CPU hit.
Ozone 4 brings all sorts of efficiencies in terms of workflow and makes things easier for the novice user via the excellent presets and features such as the Macro Faders. However, there is still an awful lot to learn. New DIY mastering engineers should take note, and make sure they do a lot of A/B comparisons to ensure that the processing is not being overcooked. And I'll repeat advice I gave when originally reviewing Ozone back in 2002: download and read the 'Guide To Mastering' PDF that is available from the Izotope web site, because it's excellent.
Two more presets I use all the time are for the Maximizer. I often use more than one limiter, but 19 times out of 20, one of the two following Maximizer presets is in the final slot or two. Again, you can download my presets at the bottom of this article.
Hopefully this has given you some creative ways to think about streamlining your mastering workflow and maximizing your efficiency. Until next time, feel free to download a few of my personal presets, and happy mastering!
