iZotope Ozone is one of the most powerful tools around for mastering your music and has helped to revolutionize the mastering process by making it accessible to anyone with even a modest budget. In this short video from the course Ozone 8 101: Mastering Toolbox, Matt Hepworth delves into the differences between two of the most commonly used processing character types: modern and vintage.
The differences between characters can be subtle but in this video you'll actually hear a clear example of how, by alternating between two different treatments of the same track, they really can give specific feels depending on how they are used. The various processing stages inside Ozone 8 can also use their own processor types, so it's not an "all or nothing" kind of a deal - you can create custom setups easily.
