Izotope Ozone 4 Mastering software
 
Hey everyone, I am in the market to pick up some mastering software to give my Reason tracks a little bit o' professional shine. I have researched the Ozone 4 software the most and it seems like the best bang for the buck ($199) but I am also looking at the T-Racks 3 software also but it's quite a bit more expensive. Does anyone here own or use Ozone 4 and have any opinions on it? From what I've heard in reviews it's a fantastic piece of software but just seeing if anyone uses it. Thanks. (and please, no "you can do it all in Reason with the M-class mastering suite! comments)

I had the demo of Ozone 4 and thought it was fan-frigging-tastic. I would have bought it but I got Record instead. It will be mine (soon).
I'd say get it. Then send it to me! ;)

Grum

Thanks Grum. I'm definitely gonna get it. I've heard nothing but rave reviews thus far and that's good enough for me!

I actually use both. I love the multiband in Ozone but I also like the character of the TRackS stuff.

I don't think you could go wrong either way. But I would tend towards Ozone as a package and then try the TRackS singles in demo mode to see if any appeal to you and get the ones that seem to compliment the Ozone package.

Here are a couple of reviews in sound on sound (you won't be able to read the full article unless you are a subscriber or pay for the full article - however, I think all articles older than 6 months are fee).

You can download a demo of Ozone and try it for 10 days (which as I have a week off work, I plan to do tomorrow)...

I use logic and I also have TC electronics Mastering software.... and I keen to see if Ozone can really do more than those.

The downer is that I never actually mastered a track using the demo. I was in the middle of doing a song so only played around with demo while the track progressed.
Bottom line is make sure you can do something in the 10 days - it isn't long in music creation land!

Grum.

Edit: I realised 12 hours later that the above post is a lie! I did do one track with it. Sorry. :(
