I just bought iZotope Ozone 5 last week, it is a complete mastering tool that you can use as a plug-in with whichever DAW you want to use it with. It is well designed and the user interface is very easy to work with and to understand. It does take some time to fully understand how to use everything and all of its functions. I have been using it for a week and I am nowhere near where I want to be with this suite yet. I am learning more and more about the Harmonic Exciter Module and the Imaging Module every day. Once I feel like I have fully mastered those two I will move on to others.


This mastering suite does take some time to install, I paid for the box version; I am not sure if there is a download only version or not. It came with the manual which I used a lot to get a better understanding of the plug ins. The manual is not as big as I though it should be for all of these plug-ins but it is easy to understand.


This whole suite is a group of plug-ins that you can add to your tracks or master track on the mixer channel to get the best possible master and mix to your music. It is very in-depth and will take some time to understand. Everything that I use to use like EQ and all of the standard stuff has now been replace with iZotope Ozone 5 plug-ins now. They are very similar to the WAVES bundle of plug-ins that you can use to master with.
This bundle is very affordable and well worth the money considering everything you will get with this bundle and how much it will help the overall sound of your compositions. It will really take you to another level after learning to use these plug-ins.
