Here at AudiobyRay we have both Mixing & Mastering experience for over 9 years.We mastered over a 1000 EDM tracks, Stem Mastering sessions, and countless DJ Mixtapes so far
In this video, I share my initial thoughts on iZotope Ozone 9 after testing it out.
I tested the CPU efficiency, looked at the new GUI and checked out the new modules – ‘Low-End Focus’ and ‘Master Rebalance’.
I also discuss many of the new features and how I think they could be used along with my hopes for the future :)
0:40 – Overview
1:40 – Efficiency Improvements
2:35 – GUI Updates
3:50 – Workflow Tools
4:40 – Master Rebalance – A truly interesting new module
7:20 – Low-End Focus
9:20 – Master Assistant Update
10:25 – AI Discussion
10:50 – Tonal Balance 2!!! (My favourite plugin)
The song being used is a remix of “Conditions” by The Workday Release and Solo Ray
I tested using the same mastering chain with both versions in FL and Studio One.
Both times Ozone 8 averaged 33% and 30% CPU usage respectively.
Whereas Ozone 9 averaged 26% and 22% CPU usage.
I checked the CPU usage on my task manager to ensure it was accurate.
This is an improvement of around 20-25% on my system – Not a scientific test, but a real-world test!
About In The Mix
In The Mix is all about simplifying the recording, production, mixing and mastering process and helping you unlock your creativity. No matter which DAW you use or what equipment you have, I’m determined to help you succeed. I try to share as much as I can about the industry and give an insight into the world of music production and the business behind it by showing you how to release and sell your music online.
Being an FL Studio Power User I also focus tutorials on getting the most out of FL Studio, My DAW of choice.
Micahel Wynne is a recording artist and mixing engineer with a passion for teaching (and instant ramen).
In 2015 I discovered my enthusiasm for music and audio; I learned how to record and produce songs in my university student room with a just cheap laptop and FL Studio. After several months of working in audio sessions between school assignments, I decided to leave uni with a 2-year engineering diploma to pursue a career in music. I wanted to learn everything I could about the industry and the artistic process, so I started making original music as half of the duo “Miavono”.
In late 2016 I began my journey on YouTube, sharing my knowledge and experiences with audio in the form of tutorials on “In The Mix”. I quickly grew a community of over 120,000 producers, artists, and audio professionals, a group of people whose passions aligned with mine. Last year I built my own home studio from the ground up in my back garden, set in the rural highlands of Scotland, and have since been supported by and involved with some of the greatest people in the industry.
