New bundle offers solutions for mixing, mastering, and vocal production, led by a vintage-inspired update to their critically acclaimed mastering software.
Cambridge, MA (September 28, 2015) - iZotope, Inc., a leading audio technology company, is announcing a new Music Production Bundle. Five award-winning plug-ins are now available at a special bundle price, offering a savings of nearly 50%.
The Music Production Bundle includes Ozone for delivering professional-sounding masters; Alloy for adding clarity, punch, and life to mixes; Nectar for enhancing and tuning up vocals; Trash for sonic distortion and experimentation; and Insight to visually diagnose what's going on with your mix. Elegant workflows and built-in visual feedback make the Music Production Bundle accessible for any musician, engineer, producer, or sound designer.
The flagship product in the bundle is the all-new Ozone 7 Advanced. Operating as a standalone platform or as a plug-in within all major DAWs, Ozone 7 Advanced includes a full suite of mastering tools. Four new Vintage modules (Vintage Compressor, Vintage EQ, Vintage Tape, and Vintage Limiter) allow engineers to dial in the desired amount of vintage character. Codec Preview lets users hear how their masters will sound to listeners who stream or buy their music online.
New updates for both the Advanced and Standard version of Ozone 7 include:
- Vintage Limiter that adds sonic characteristics of analog hardware
- New export options for delivering your mastered audio to desired MP3/AAC formats
- IRC IV mode in the Maximizer to increase perceived loudness without pumping or distortion
- Improved Dynamic EQ, a precision EQ that lives and breathes with your music
"The Ozone 7 update builds on iZotope's reputation for superior sound quality audio mastering tools. We're adding more processing capabilities, including an innovative new IRC limiting algorithm that uses spectral shaping to reduce pumping and distortion," says iZotope Product Manager Izzy Maxwell. "Ozone 7 Advanced honors all the aspects of vintage hardware, compressors, and tape that people love - warmth, saturation, character, richness - and reimagines them for the modern digital music production realm."
"We found increasing numbers of customers using Ozone to mix as well as master their audio. With the Music Production Bundle, we wanted to provide customers a smoother path to all of iZotope's mastering and mixing tools at a compelling price that is affordable to project studios and pros alike."
iZotope will present Ozone 7, Ozone 7 Advanced, and the Music Production Bundle at AES 2015 in New York, October 29 - November 1.
iZotope's Music Production Bundle is available now for both new customers and upgraders from previous versions of Ozone. Includes: Ozone 7 Advanced*, Insight, Alloy 2, Nectar 2 Production Suite, and Trash 2 (plus two Trash Expansions).
