YouTube Preview Image

Dubspot Instructor and Mixing & Mastering engineer Daniel Wyatt is back with more invaluable techniques, tips and tricks using iZotope’s versatile mastering plug-in Ozone 4. In this new tutorial video, Wyatt shares an amazing technique using Ozone’s Multiband Compressor to gather up all the low end frequencies (foundational elements such as kick and bass) of your track and boosting them up and giving them compression pressure, while maintaining a dynamic of sounds. Daniel Wyatt starts by explaining the essential settings and parameters of the multiband dynamics section, and further shows you how to utilize some of the incredible features such as the real-time visualization dynamics and solo-ing of each band of the four bands, so you can compress, fine-tuned, and boost specific frequency range. Once again, Wyatt is using Ozone 4 mastering plug-in, but dynamic range compression is a universal mastering technique you can apply using any host application.

Below, we’ve included a track from Dubspot Mixing & Mastering student, rising producer Adam Schwartz who’s track was used this this video. Check out the pre-master and a mastered version, side to side. Please have a listen, and notice the significant improvement and transformation of the track from rough, low-volume composition to a dynamic, dancefloor ready banger.
