    Mastering with Izotope Ozone 4

    HI, I use Izotope Ozone 4 for mastering my sets. I have tried with some presets as "izotope electro and dance rock master - boost and stereo imaging"
    The quality is not bad but I want to know what is the best preset or how can I configure Izotope Ozone to have the best quality as possible for trance/hosuse sets.
    Thank you

    I think you should ask yourself the question if you really need a mastering plugin over tracks that are already professionally mastered.
    In the end it would only make crap of the audio because the levels etc. are already good.

    Maybe you need a kind of limiter, such as the Kjaerhus Classic Limiter




    Anyway, this topic belongs in the Tech side of this forum so moving it to there.

    I'd say... when you record, try to keep it balanced. So not from soft to much louder. Then if you keep everything "around the same volume", you can simply normalize it to have maximum volume.

    if you mean mastering to make it sound like a "radio show", like ASOT, then you need a different approach, which is not something I have knowledge about.

    Technically you aren´t mastering at all ;-)
    The Tracks are mastered as earlier said, and without every single "layer" (instrument) from the master, all you can do is play with dynamics, effects or levels.

    I´d say you´re looking for a kind of dynamic normalizer to adjust the levels here and there.
    Radio Stations have the same stuff, just in a pricing range where we (i) can´t reach up!
    The effect is one default output level for all songs without (matter of price) any distortions from "pimping" a low-level original song up to the stations level.

    I heard somewhere that Armin uses Izotope Ozone to master his ASOT radio show, I don't know if it is true or not. Anyone knows about that?

    I don't know. Likely he uses a bus-compressor. But still, it's not what you use but hów you use it
