iZotope Ozone 9 Advanced – Mastering Software (Download)

Available for download, iZotope Ozone 9 Advanced is software designed for mastering music, providing many modules for the task. The software builds upon the offerings of previous iterations with visual improvements, CPU optimizing, new modules, and new assistive options. The software allows you to create masters of your music in an intuitive, user-friendly manner.

Take the Master Rebalance Module, for instance. With tech borrowed from RX 7, this module intelligently grabs your bass, drums, or vocal parts and brings them up and down in level, depending on your settings. Now, you may not need to contact the mixing engineer when the bass part isn’t loud enough—you can simply raise it up yourself.

Another new offering is the Low End Focus module, which uses proprietary processes to help you secure impact, translation, and a distinct absence of mud in the low end of your masters. Use this module to help the kick and bass play nicely together in a stereo track.

You’ll note that Match EQ has been broken out into its own module. It now sports more controls to help you get the most out of this process in every part of the frequency spectrum.

You’ll find the Vintage mode in the Master Assistant useful, as it applies colorful strokes in the mastering process. Use the traditional Master Assistant to get you to the level you wish as transparently as possible, or choose the Vintage mode if the mix needs some more weight, vibe, or color. Then, tweak from there.

Included with Ozone 9 Advanced is an upgrade to the Tonal Balance Control plug-in. Tonal Balance Control 2 now comes with a far greater number of presets than the first version. It also lets you solo each individual band to home in on frequency issues.

As with the previous version, you’ll find a reference section to load in your favorite referencing tracks. You’ll also find dither options and be able to audition how the master sounds through various lossy codecs.

Other tweaks have been made to existing modules under the hood, including performance enhancements, and, in the case of the Imager module, increased sonic transparency. You can now resize the GUI at will. This being the advanced version, you can break out any module you wish into its own plug-in, so if you only want to use the Master Rebalance function, you needn’t load the whole suite.

The software is compatible with Mac and Windows platforms in AU, VST2, VST3, and AAX formats. It’s now compatible with NKS supported environments as well.

New Features

Master Rebalance

Master Rebalance gives you the final say in a mix, letting you correct and change the levels of instruments without needing the original tracks. Give your vocals a small boost to add presence without affecting the midrange, or eliminate a muddy low end by slightly lowering the bass guitar. Correct weak-sounding drums, saving you from hours of EQ surgery. A well-balanced mix makes any mastering engineer’s job easier. With Master Rebalance, you can nudge your sound in the right direction.

Low End Focus

Low End Focus is your first line of defense against a muddy or blurry low end in a mix. Using new processing designed to enhance bass sounds, this feature brings your low end into better focus and gives you a well-defined foundation for your track. Tame unruly or clashing kick drums and boomy bass guitars without changing the overall impact of your music, or get that extra bit of bass magic to put your track over the finish line. Go in-depth with surgical controls that let you shape your tone and timbre and bring out the best in your low end with no artifacts.

EQ Match

Ozone 9 brings the tone and vibe of your favorite artists to your music with the upgraded EQ Match. With this new module, you can conform to any reference track to a precise degree, with an EQ that uses over 8000 separate bands to give an accurate point of comparison. New region parameters now give you more control over the end result by letting you choose what parts of the audio to match. Capture a reference from a track in your session, or a reference file loaded into Ozone 9, and save your favorite results as presets for easy access.

Vintage Assistive Technology

The improved Master Assistant uses machine learning to give you a custom preset in seconds. Use the new Vintage mode to quickly add the right combination of color and character, with automatic adjustments for Vintage Compressor, EQ, Limiter, and more. Get a solid master in seconds while preparing your music for distribution with CD and streaming targets that intelligently set loudness for you. Or, load a reference track to have Master Assistant match the flavor and intensity of any audio you like. Get a head start on your master with the confidence that your music will sound great on any system.

iZotope Nectar 3 – Vocal Production Channel Strip Software for (Download)

Available for download, iZotope Nectar 3 is a channel strip plug-in developed for vocal mixing and polishing. Compression, equalization, saturation, vocal harmonies, and more are provided in the channel strip.

Nectar 3 takes many features available in version 2 of Nectar and expands upon them, updating them both in aesthetics and processing. Many new features are offered in Nectar 3, such as a Vocal Assistant, which creates a custom preset for your specific vocal after analyzing it.

You’ll also note the unmask feature, which carves out of the way any competing instruments, letting the vocal shine through the mix. A dynamic EQ has been added that can follow unwelcome resonances as they move up and down the frequency range, intelligently curtailing nasty blooms of sound so you don’t have to automate them yourself, or split them onto different tracks.

The new Dimension module provides chorus, flanging, and more, while Reverb and Delay modules have been redesigned to give you new and exciting kinds of delay. The Harmony section has been updated. Automatic Level Mode, on the input fader, quickly adjusts the levels of your vocals in a transparent manner, mitigating the need for corrective dynamics processing. A limiter, at the end of the chain, can ensure you don’t go over your desired level and can also impart a meaty feeling upon the sound.

Included with Nectar 3 are several other plug-ins that are quite helpful. Melodyne is world-renowned pitch-correction software, and Nectar 3 comes with Melodyne 4 Essential. RX 7 Breath Control is on hand for taking out unwanted breaths. Relay ensures inter-plug-in communication: put Relay on a guitar track that competes with the vocal’s midrange, and the Vocal Assistant can now target that guitar, changing its EQ to keep it out of the vocal’s way.

This software is compatible with Mac and Windows platforms. It is included in AU, AAX, VST, and RTAS formats.

iZotope Neutron 3 Advanced – Channel Strip Software with Mix Assistant for Pro Audio Applications (Download)

Neutron 3 Advanced represents the next step forward in iZotope‘s channel-strip plug-ins, giving you the ability to balance your entire session in three clicks with the new Mix Assistant. As with previous iterations, you get an equalizer, a compressor, a transient shaper, an exciter, and other goodies from Neutron 2. But iZotope has brought a new module into the mix as well—a sweetening, tone-shaping module called Sculptor.

The modules offered in version 2 have been optimized to take as little CPU as possible. The GUI has seen an overhaul with a resizeable window as well as better control of the sliders than Version 2. The Masking Meter, which helps you identify and fix competing frequencies between two tracks, is now elegantly compacted into one, easy-to-understand window, with essential parameters like inverse link more readily available.

The most prominent additions to the Neutron platform are Mix Assistant and Sculptor. Through plug-in communication, the Mix Assistant can listen to all of the tracks in your mix and give you a static starting point. Use it at the beginning of the process: Simply place Neutron 3 or Relay on every track of your mix, run the Mix Assistant, choose the most prominent tracks when prompted (i.e., the vocal in a pop tune), and let Neutron handle all the busywork so you can get to the fun stuff.

Sculptor, on the other hand, is a sweetening, finalizing module that applies a comprehensive EQ, one that fluctuates in real-time, reacting to the track as it plays. It makes multiple dynamic choices per second. Use it to add both final polish and a creative emphasis to any track.

Neutron 3 Advanced is compatible with Mac and Windows computers and is available for download. It works in AU, AAX, and VST formats.

Mix Assistant

Through inter-plug-in communication, Mix Assistant listens to your entire mix, communicating with every track in your session to give you a balanced starting point. This starting point is built around a focus of your choice. Neutron 3 listens to your session and makes decisions to give you a balanced mix—a jumping off point from which you can make creative decisions.

Sculptor Module

Select a desired style from the menu, and the algorithm shapes the tone to achieve an ideal balance for that instrument. Change the speed at which the process is applied, or change the overall tonality, highs, or lows. You can even set filter points, stopping all processing below or above your desired frequency. This can be useful for sculpting just the midrange of track or for excluding the treble to obviate any undue harshness.

Breakout Plug-Ins

Neutron Advanced comes with 8 individual module plug-ins, so if you only need the EQ or Sculptor, you can instantiate it without loading the compressor, transient shaper, etc. Each of the modules can be loaded independently.

Improved Masking Meter

With a convenient one-window display, smoother metering with more obvious parameters, Masking Meter is now even better at helping you find and fix the competing elements of your mix.

Optimized Performance

Insert more instances of Neutron in your session, open sessions faster, and forget about bouncing sessions for overdubs. Not only is Neutron faster at processing your audio, but your sessions with multiple Neutrons will open faster with refresh rates doubled for visualizations.
