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

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.

The Most Powerful Ozone Ever.

Ozone 4 incorporates an extensive list of new features, optimizations,
workflow improvements and DSP algorithms. No matter how you're using Ozone,
you'll find features in Ozone 4 that will help you sound better and work

New in Ozone 4


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

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


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 with a fast decay rate, 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


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.
