October 17, 2001

Analog modeled, multiband, 64-bit integrated mastering system.

Framingham, MA (October 17, 2001) – IZOTOPE, INC. has announced the release of Ozone, a 64-bit system of analog modeled effects in one DirectX plug-in.

Ozone provides the following effects modules, meters, and functionality:

  • Four bands of multiband dynamics that carefully emulate the response of analog circuitry, providing compression, expansion, limiting and gating.
  • Real-time visualization of the dynamics within each band.
  • Harmonic excitation based on analog tube saturation models. Multiband excitation with adjustable crossovers to add extended bass, sizzling highs, or anything in between.
  • Multiband parametric EQ with "soft saturation" modeling overlaid on a spectrum display.
  • Reverb with control over room size, frequency cutoff, damping, and more.
  • Phase meter and vectorscope displays that highlight imaging, phase and potential canceling problems.
  • Stereo imaging controls including multiband widening and multiband delays.
  • A loudness maximizer with soft and brickwall limiting modes.
  • A unique signal flow interface that allows you to customize the order of the modules while still providing 64-bit processing through the entire mastering chain.
  • An Undo/History list that lets you track your tweaks and go back to previous settings with the click of a mouse.
  • A spectrum analyzer that offers real time and average modes, snapshots, and more.
