iZotope offers the Ozone Elements ($129 retail price) mixing and mastering software bundle as a FREE download for a limited time only.
Ozone Elements is iZotope’s entry-level version of the Ozone mastering suite. Ozone was released precisely twenty years ago, and iZotope celebrates the anniversary by offering Ozone Elements as a freebie.
If you’re looking for mastering plugins, the Ozone Elements bundle is a great place to start. It includes three essential products from the Ozone plugin suite:
- Ozone Equalizer
- Ozone Imager
- Ozone Maximizer
iZotope’s mastering plugins incorporate the Master Assistant feature, which analyzes your audio and suggests the best mastering settings for the EQ and limiter.
The software will ask you what kind of master you’re going for (streaming or CD, low or high intensity) and suggest the best settings based on your choice. It is a good idea to let the software analyze the loudest portion of your track to make the results as precise as possible.
You can use these suggested parameter settings as the starting point and fine-tune them to get the final master. It’s a handy feature if you’re mastering a demo project using a non-ideal monitoring setup.
I always liked iZotope’s approach to interface design. Ozone Elements plugins are masterfully designed, with an intuitive layout and eye-friendly colors. The controls are easy to grasp, and you’ll be up and running in minutes even if you haven’t used Ozone software before.
