iZotope Ozone: Purchase (& Reasoning)

Seems a little pricey, but worthwhile in my case because it addresses two requirements that have been nagging me (before I discovered that product):

  • Has intelligent compressor, maximizing loudness and minimising dependence on manual tweaking (eqials time in post).
  • Has good-quality reverb.

It’s a plugin (DirectX /DLL), no standalone application.  Hosts / plugin formats:

  • The manual refers (Page 119) to <<Pro Tools, VST, AU and MAS versions of Ozone … (and) DirectX version>>
  • The website
    • Plug-in formats:
      • Pro Tools 7.4+ (RTAS/AudioSuite), VST, MAS, Audio Unit, DirectX
    • Plug-in host compatibility:
      • Pro Tools, Cubase, Nuendo, WaveLab, GarageBand, Logic, Audition, SONAR, ACID, REAPER, Sound Forge, Peak, Ableton Live, and many more
      • Does not mention:
        • Sony Vegas (even though I found it works in this)
        • Adobe CS5.5 Production Suite e.g. Premiere.  Can it work with this and its siblings?
