Ozone vrs Waves

Hi Everyone,

So I'm exploring the possibilities and alternatives... What would be your opinion on Ozone in comparison to Waves? Some people hate it and some saying it's pretty good for compression and limiting... How do you think it compares to T-Racks?

I like the Ozone for stereo widening and occasional exciting. I would recommend you look at other options for compression and limiting. UAD-2, Waves Renaissance, Massey, Stillwell, etc.

The limiting is probably the claim to fame for Ozone.

Stillwell Event Horizon looks interesting... Anyone ever used it for limiting?

I have the Horizon+ and while it's definitely not a go to processor I do use it on occasion. It works well for material where you want to impart a good bit more density and where additional dirt and grit is a tolerable (or in some rare cases, even desired) artifact. Things like reverby retro garage rock seem to work very well with it for example, and in these cases it often can work better than my other limiter options. The majority of cases I find I use other choices for limiting chores though. Since the Horizon+ is so cheap I think it's worth having it as an option in the toolbox though.

Best regards,
Steve Berson

I was exactly about to say that... That multiband exciter is really awesome!

I like them both... although, waves can be a little too expensive for a musician who is on a budget.
