The Mix and Master Bundle from iZotope contains two essential effects suites for mixing and mastering, the two bookends of audio post processing. Perfect for musicians, engineers, producers, and sound designers who want to get the most out of their tracks.

Alloy 2 contains six processors that have been designed to fix problems or add character to every element of a mix. Ozone 6 combines eight essential mastering processors into one complete system. All of the modules are combined into a single, powerful interface, making the mastering process more efficient and intuitive.

    Alloy 2 from iZotope might appear like a traditional channel strip, but with its six integrated processors, it delivers far more. Innovative sound sculpting tools allows for focusing on the task at hand without distraction, packaging mixing and mastering essentials in a self-contained and completely configurable plug-in.

    Equalizer, Dynamics, Exciter, De-Esser, Transient Shaper and Limiter modules balance vintage emulation with digital precision, with over 250 presets that can be used as starting points, or further edited to taste. Side chaining, cross chaining, zero latency mode, comprehensive metering for visual feedback are just some of the features that cover most audio mastering, post, and mixing needs.

  • Ozone 6 - Mastering Software (Download)

    Ozone 6 from iZotope is a major update to the Ozone line-up with an improved visual aesthetic that guides users through every stage of the mastering process. Aside from the fluid workflow, the "creative" elements of mastering are now front and center, so users can define their own sound with ease.

    Two equalizers are included that combine eight bands of adjustable filters with a choice of filter shapes. Each band of dynamics is capable of three types of dynamics processing - limiting, compressing, and expanding, while an exciter module allows for dialing in the right amount of bite or warmth to a master. Precisely adjust stereo width of an audio file using the four-frequency-band Imager module.

    Additional presets have been created with outcome-oriented descriptions. Dithering has been updated and includes a set of bit scopes and DC level meters. The application also function standalone, with the added enhancement of third party plug-in hosting. Trim and fade controls are provided, along with SRC (sample rate conversion) on import, plus single- and multiple-file export with the company's MBIT+ Dither.

    Current purchases of Ozone 6 are eligible for a free upgrade to Ozone 7 on its release.
