iZotope has teamed up with Greg Calbi to offer presets designed by the prolific senior mastering engineer. They say that, built for users of Ozone, each preset is designed as a starting point for mastering and crafted to achieve a certain sonic goal. Here's the story in their own words...
Greg Calbi has mastered over 7,500 albums and worked with artists including The Ramones, The Talking Heads, Bruce Springsteen, Paul Simon, and Lady Gaga. He uses iZotope's critically acclaimed mastering toolkit Ozone on a daily basis. The presets he has designed for his own projects are now available to all Ozone users to help elevate their mixes to professional-sounding masters.
Calbi's presets cover such sonic ground as their names suggest: General Clarity, Quick Limiting, Smooth Bass, and Upper Harmonics, as well as several presets for High, Midrange, and Low Detail.
"The presets serve as a window into where a mix can go, an entrance to something you can manipulate further," he says. "Having Ozone and the availability and the flexibility of the presets makes the job a lot easier."
