Using the vintage EQ balance, we'll redistribute the tonal balance of the mix and add warmth, clarity and top end sparkle


We'll use the multiband stereo imager module to put each frequency band it's place in the stereo field


We'll use one of Ozone's most powerful modules to take care of specific issues and problems in the mix


The goal with multiband dynamics is to control peaks and maximize loudness using frequency bands and to re balance the frequency distribution if needed


We'll add extra richness and depth by adding harmonics and subtle distortion


We'll use Ozone's classic compressor emulation to glue the elements of the track and add thickness and loudness


Tape saturation is a great tool for adding warmth and character to a lacking mix
