Re: iZotope Ozone - multiband compressor?

The most effective use of MBC I have found is applying it to the low end... by compressing just lows (say under 100Hz) you can really control those big low frequencies which will allow you to boost them to a point that really adds a sense of power to your masters.

Great for hand held use or getting it into tight places like the port on a kick drum. <object width="420" height="315"><embed src="http://www.youtu...
