iZotope Ozone 6

iZotope has released Ozone 6, the latest version of the creative mastering suite for Windows and Mac.

Elevate a good-sounding mix to a professional-sounding master with Ozone. iZotope’s critically acclaimed mastering software has all the tools you need to produce a full and polished sound.

With a striking new interface and a modern workflow, Ozone 6 both guides and inspires your creativity at every step.

The Advanced version of Ozone 6 includes a powerful new Dynamic EQ that lives and breathes with your music, as well as eight component plug-ins and a suite of configurable meters.

iZotope Ozone 6

Changes in Ozone 6

  • New Analog Hardware-modeled EQ filter shapes — Harness the sonic characteristics of classic EQ designs with new filter shapes including Baxandall Bass and Treble filters and API-style Proportional Q filters. Also new to Ozone 6 are Band Shelf filters and Resonant High and Low shelves.
  • Surgical Mode — All digital linear-phase filters are now matched to analog shapes; however, Surgical Mode allows you to utilize the precision of digital shapes for extreme cuts with minimum slope.
  • Variable EQ Phase Control — Digital linear-phase filters now feature per-node variable phase control for subtly adding phase delay to smooth out boosts that may sound harsh.
  • Seamless Bypass — Audition changes to your audio by gain-matching bypassed audio to your Ozone-processed signal for faster and more accurate A/B testing.
  • Customizable Signal Chain — Host your third-party VST/AU plug-ins in the standalone application. Then build your mastering signal chain from scratch or load a preset and add, remove, and swap the order of modules.
  • Module Gain Meters — Monitor gain-staging across processing modules with Module Gain Meters that instantly illustrate where you’re boosting and cutting gain across your signal chain.
  • Transient Emphasis — Preserve rhythmic detail while maximizing loudness with Transient Emphasis, which adds smart emphasis to transients by preserving sharp attacks.
  • Diode and Dual Triode Exciter Modes — Modeled after actual hardware circuitry, these Exciter modes offer vintage saturation from subtle warmth to more pronounced edge.
  • Stereoize Control — Add width to narrow or mono recordings without introducing phase artifacts.
  • Variable Knee Compression — Get precise control over compression characteristics by choosing between hard and soft compression.
  • Dynamics Detection Enhancements — Simulate smoother analog-style compression with both High-Pass and API Thrust-inspired Tilt filters. Use the True Envelope detection mode for RMS-style compression (flat frequency response and low distortion) triggered equally across the frequency spectrum.
  • New Presets — All newly designed presets utilize the improvements introduced in Ozone 6 including new Component Plug-in Presets with Ozone Advanced.
  • Standalone Application — Now available as both a plug-in and as a standalone application, Ozone 6 adds a number of forward-thinking features that simplify traditional mastering workflows, including:
    • Automatic color-coded waveform segmentation.
    • Tops/tails trims and fades with multiple shape types.
    • Third-party plug-in hosting (VST/AU Support).
    • Single/all-track export with iZotope SRC (sample rate conversion).
    • Auto-adjusted MBIT+ Dither at output.
    • Fully contained project folders.

Changes in Ozone 6 Advanced

  • Dynamic EQ Module — Ozone Advanced adds the new Dynamic EQ module, an EQ that lives and breathes with your music. Harness the precision of an equalizer with the musical ballistics of a compressor. Integrated with an intuitive workflow, these processors work in concert to create a valuable mastering tool that excels where traditional EQs and compressors fail.
  • Dynamic EQ Component Plug-in — Ozone 6 Advanced also includes a component Dynamic EQ plug-in for use throughout your audio editing software signal chain.

Ozone 6 is available for purchase for the introductory price of $199 USD through November 13th, 2014 (regular $249 USD). Ozone 6 Advanced is $599 USD (regular $999 USD).

Boz Digital Labs releases Imperial Delay plugin

Related: , , , , , , Posted in news on Oct 29, 2014 - comment 0 comments

Boz Digital Labs has launched Imperial Delay, a delay effect plug-in for Windows and Mac.

Boz Digital Labs Imperial Delay

Imperial Delay was designed from the beginning with two goals: Be the most powerful delay, and be easy to use. As it turns out, those two requirements tend to be at odds with each other. Some delays give you lots of control but require you to get out your lab coat and calculator in order to use it. Other delays sound great with only a couple knobs, but give you almost no options. Imperial Delay does both.

Every option that you would need in a delay is available at the twist of a single knob. If you need more control over those effects, you can enter the advanced controls and experiment to your heart’s content.

Boz Digital Labs’ new preset management system lets you save presets that go far beyond your DAW’s preset saving ability.

Imperial Delay for Windows and Mac (VST/AU/RTAS/AAX) is available for purchase for the introductory price of $59 USD until November 11th, 2014 (MSRP $299 USD).
