Ozone 4 update

iZotope has announced Ozone 4, the latest update to its professional audio mastering tools that enables the tweaking of effects such as balance and tone. When it ships later this month, Ozone 4 will offer several changes, including the update and expansion of processing algorithms for better use in low-latency DAW environments, a new loudness maximizer mode, and a redesigned interface. The new preset manager also offers over a hundred presets and a floating window for simplified editing and visual feedback.

Other changes include new hybrid crossovers and new mid/side processing tools that let users process different parts of the soundstage separately. The company says that seven mastering processors are integrated in total.

The plug-in formats include Pro Tools 7 (RTAS/AudioSuite), VST, MAS, Audio Unit, and DirectX. Lastly, a variety of other interface changes such as refined EQ controls and automatic gain compensation have been added.

The software is compatible with Mac OS X 10.4 or later and is on display at the NAMM show (booth 6700) and will ship by the end of the month. Ozone 4 is to be distributed by M-Audio and will also be available as direct download only. With a MSRP price of $250, customers who purchased Ozone 3 after October 1, 2008 are eligible for a free upgrade while owners prior to that date will have to pay $80 for the update.
