Ozone 5

After a few months of use, I'll say that Ozone is definitely worth the money. The maximizer and equalizer alone are worth the price. The stereo imaging tool is also very useful. I find the reverb to be a nice touch at times but nothing special in greater landscape of reverb processing. Ozone has SIGNIFICANT latency when used within multitrack projects.

For the DIY home-studio type the plugin is fantastic. It's a swiss army knife for certain. The presets can be useful for learning more about mastering approaches or mastering theory but aren't recommended, since mastering should be tailored to each track. For professionals Ozone is useful but not a first choice for mastering.

This is an amazingly powerful suite of mastering tools!

The individual elements are all top level, and the ability to move them around on the fly is very nice.

And the master assistant feature amazes me. I'm on the fence on AI stuff in regards to audio work, but after trying it out on a few things I must say that with a little tweaking after its suggestion, I'm usually right where I wanna be, balance-, dynamic-, and level-wise.

I'm giving it 4/5 on features since this is the standard version. I've yet to try the advanced one that includes more modules.

Amazing product!
