    Ozone is the shiznit. I had it on my old computer, and it made my shitty amateur recordings sound like passable songs. Very nice, indeed.

    Damn. When that hit at the beginning started I seriously felt my skull sink inward a little. In a freakin awesome way!

    Did you know what you did, or did you just use presets so that it could sound just like the other modern stuff nowadays?

    Yea, not trying to be a downer, but all I'm hearing is a smashed limiter compressing the hell out of that "bass drop" sound...

    i also use Ozone... but last time i realized that this tool really diverts you to check your originally mix and it's quality.
    i.e. it would take to much time and effort to change all my current projects for the upcoming album, and i have good results with Ozone, but you should use this tool ONLY when you already GOT the almost perfect mix and just want to put the final touches to it ;)

    so i definitely won't touch Ozone for the next album! :D

    EDIT: AND I'm using your S2.0 Avatar preset for his main drum tone (demoing) :cheers:

    No it's not a preset, but there is wayyy to much to explain in this reply. Overall the main thing I had to do to fix this mix was EQ trimming.

    If only it were my mix to perfect. I just worked with what I was given. Trust me, I don't like to rely on Ozone to fix everything ;)

    Very nice, the guitars sound way better! The snare got kinda drowned out in the 2nd clip though :/

    yeah man i just said ;) i think most people (me too) started to work with those tools because they fix problems very quickly and do great job prettifying
    your mix with a few clicks but they make you addicted to can not working without them anymore :D

    i think the best way to work with that tools is test them and check out what they do, and try to reproduce this sound you like in your premaster mix. after that you can do the perfection and loudness with those tools in a much smarter way. so that's my experience... and i already work with Ozone for month ^^


    Ozone is just a compilation of usual mastering tools, that (and following) was a good tutorial to get into the function of the tools,
    but the best way is learning by doing ;) just tryout what the sections do and you'll see what's gonna happen.
    so there's no "voodoo-function" or something like that in Ozone, all just standard tools like multiband compressor, stereo enhancer, maximizer....
    but in this case all in one.

    so, very effectively, but as we germans would say: "not the yellow from the egg" to handle your overall mix out of that "magic box" ^^
