Note: This course demonstrates Ozone 8 Advanced modules aswell as those within the Standard version. 

iZotope’s Ozone 8 is one of the most comprehensive software mastering suites currently available and has quickly become an essential plugin for producers. On this course by accomplished DJ producer and music educator Joshua Casper, you’ll acquire all the knowledge you need to be able to create your own professional-sounding masters with Ozone.

After introducing the basics and the mastering assistant, which uses machine learning to automatically create custom presets specifically tailored to your track, Joshua moves onto the learn features, EQ matching and using the references panel, so you’ll quickly get up to speed with the main operational features and already be able to start mastering your own material to a reasonable level. However, the tutorials then progress into a detailed exploration of each of Ozone 8’s modules, covering both modern and vintage types and providing more than a few demonstrations along the way.

In addition to working with Tonal Balance Control, iZotope’s included software for assisted track equalisation, Joshua discusses general and global parameters, dithering, codec previews, and even how to export your track. The course then concludes with a real-time track mastering session, showing 2 different examples of mastering, one with modern and one with vintage modules, to compare the techniques used on each process and resulting mastered sound.

As well as accessing the streamed tutorials, signing up to the course provides access to a download pack containing 10 additional presets for Ozone and the pre-mastered track from the videos, so you not only learn how to master with the software but also have extra materials for doing so. Check out the free sample modules from the course before signing up for an example of the tutorial content, which will enable your knowledge of Ozone and mastering to be fully realised!
