PRODUCTS Hal Leonard Mastering With Ozone 8 Hal Leonard Books and NextPoint Training have partnered to develop new music production cur- ricula and learning materials. The second release in this series is Frank D. Cook and Sean McLaughlin’s Mastering with Ozone 8, which explores the process of mastering finished songs using iZotope’s Ozone software package. Designed to support instructor-led training and facilitate independent learning, this course book covers all aspects of working with Ozone 8 Advanced and will serve as iZotope’s official curriculum. Mastering with Ozone 8 focuses on the program’s strength from a musical deployment perspective, teaching the basics of production through the program rather than delving into software-specific minutiae. Users will learn to use Ozone as a standalone application or as a plug-in on the master bus of their preferred DAW. The book covers all of the controls available in the Project window and in the Ozone plug-in. It also features hands-on exercises to help readers develop their skills by applying the techniques discussed in each chapter.
