Groove3 Mastering with Ozone 11 Explained TUTORIAL
Long considered a standard in the world of mastering, iZotope’s Ozone plug-in suite speaks for itself. If you’ve recently upgraded to Ozone 11 (or are getting ready to), you’re in the right place! In this Ozone 11 video course, mastering guru Larry Holcombe takes you on an informative voyage through Ozone 11’s mastering features, demonstrating each with various musical examples, including four full tracks in various genres! These videos are designed for users with little or no Ozone 11 experience.
Larry begins by introducing the series and highlighting the newly added features in Ozone 11 that pertain to mastering. Then he shows you how to generate a customized effect chain with Master Assistant and then quickly tweak it to suit your needs more specifically. You’ll then see how to get more detailed in this regard, including editing the various parameters in different modules to achieve your desired result.
Next, you’ll explore the new Stem Focus feature, which allows you to process only specific sounds, such as a bass guitar or a drumset, without harming the rest of the mix. See this in action as Larry shows you how to fix problematic drums and vocals in an electronic pop track. The Transient/Sustain mode is covered after this, with which you’ll learn how to treat drums that need more punch, muddy sustain in mixes, clashing kick and bass, and more.
Other topics in the course include vocal balancing (determining the proper vocal balance by comparing against the analyzed reference tracks), upward compression and Clarity module (for taming resonances and bringing buried areas forward), and four different real-world mastering scenarios in different genres: singer-songwriter, hip-hop, electronic pop, and rock.
If you have any experience with Ozone, you know it’s always being improved with new smart features that make creating pro-quality mixes easier and faster. With this Ozone mixing course, you’ll be up to date with all the latest and greatest the software has to offer and can be sure you’re making the most of everything, starting with your very next production.
