Unlock Your Mastering Potential with this Free Mastering Guide from iZotope

By in Music Creation

Get approachable advice on the art of mastering in Pro Tools, using the Ozone AAX 64-bit plug-in from iZotope, with a free guide that provides valuable tools, tips, and techniques.

We’re happy to share the 2015 update to our acclaimed guide, Mastering with Ozone. You can get it for free as a PDF or as an iTunes download for your iPhone or iPad. Check out the links at the bottom of this article.

If you don’t know anything about mastering—or if you could use a refresher—this guide is a great place to dig into the basic principles and techniques. You don’t need to own iZotope Ozone 6, our AAX creative mastering platform plug-in, to enjoy the guide, but we use it as reference point to provide illustrative examples of tips and concepts. If you want to get hands-on as you read, you can always download the free Ozone 10-day trial. Ozone is AAX 64-bit compatible, which makes it an excellent companion to Pro Tools when you’re finishing your mix.

Our 2015 edition was revised by Jonathan Wyner, iZotope’s Education Director. Jonathan is the Chief Mastering Engineer at iZotope and founder of M-Works Mastering Studios in Cambridge, Massachusetts.
