I Have Ozone standard...but it's similar...
For professional postproduction good with ProTools.
I have to say that I really like this plugin and have done a lot of work with it in the past. Especially for music, it has very interesting presets that lead to a quick goal. Over time, however, I use this plugin less and less. And if I use something from it, then multiband comp /Dynamic/, whose settings really work very well and exciter. I use them both in TV post-production for words and for music mastering.
Stability is good. As for the graphic interface, it's already a little worse, especially the equalizer resolution is on the dB side, and its expansion bothers me. Any change in the equalization is very subtle - almost unnecessary, the same applies to the dyn eq.
As a disadvantage, I would like to point out that some parameter names on the plugin do not match the names in the automation window. So it's confusing when you want to automate a certain parameter and it has a different name in the automation window (!). I don't know why the standard shortcut /when working in ProTools/ for setting the automation of the selected parameter directly on the plug-in does not work, as it is customary with other plugins. I am always forced to automate only through the automation window selection. For other plugins, just click Ctrl+alt+cmd and click on the parameter you want to automate. Not with iZotope, and it's terrible!!!
One more thing bothers me. When I adjust the output volume on the plugin and change the presets, the output volume always jumps back to 0.0dB! It's tearing my ears off!!!! I want to have the volume turned down to the same level and scroll through the presets.
I want to mention, like my colleague, about the prices. Although I am a client of iZotope, the new offers are not financially interesting. In addition, whenever a person wants to choose a product at iZotope, the company's website is constantly confusing, because they don't know which package contains which plugins... I consider this a thieving practice. It would be enough to simply write: This package contains these plugins... When you receive an email with an offer, you are usually directly directed to the purchase without being able to check what you are buying in the selected package. For this reason, I will no longer purchase any more products from iZotope.
Regardless of the fact that, for example, the newer version of the RX software is worse than the older version...
And what pissed me off was when the next day after I bought Ozone, I got a good customer offer with a discount on the Ozone product. Total mockery and slap in the face. Like, thank you for buying our software, don't you want another one of the same? Why didn't they offer me anything else... Well, because they are stingy.
