iZotope have announced a new Music Production Bundle which will consist of 5 plug-ins now available at a special bundle price, offering a savings of nearly 50%. In addition they are announced Ozone 7, a new version of their mastering suite.
The Music Production Bundle includes Ozone for mastering, Alloy for adding clarity, punch, and life to mixes; Nectar for enhancing and tuning up vocals; Trash for sonic distortion and experimentation; and Insight to visually diagnose what's going on with your mix.
iZotope Ozone 7 Announced
The flagship product in the bundle will be the all-new Ozone 7 Advanced. Operating as a standalone platform or as a plug-in within all major DAWs, Ozone 7 Advanced includes a full suite of mastering tools. Four new Vintage modules (Vintage Compressor, Vintage EQ, Vintage Tape, and Vintage Limiter) allow engineers to dial in the desired amount of vintage character. Codec Preview lets users hear how their masters will sound to listeners who stream or buy their music online.
New updates for both the Advanced and Standard version of Ozone 7 include:
- Vintage Limiter that adds sonic characteristics of analog hardware
- New export options for delivering your mastered audio to desired MP3/AAC formats
- IRC IV mode in the Maximizer to increase perceived loudness without pumping or distortion
- Improved Dynamic EQ, a precision EQ that lives and breathes with your music
iZotope Product Manager Izzy Maxwell told us....
The Ozone 7 update builds on iZotope's reputation for superior sound quality audio mastering tools. We're adding more processing capabilities, including an innovative new IRC limiting algorithm that uses spectral shaping to reduce pumping and distortion. Ozone 7 Advanced honors all the aspects of vintage hardware, compressors, and tape that people love - warmth, saturation, character, richness - and reimagines them for the modern digital music production realm. We found increasing numbers of customers using Ozone to mix as well as master their audio. With the Music Production Bundle, we wanted to provide customers a smoother path to all of iZotope's mastering and mixing tools at a compelling price that is affordable to project studios and pros alike.
