love it, it comes with a ton of mastering presets you can deconstruct and learn from. visually it's great too, the interface is pretty easy to grasp.
google "mastering with ozone pdf", the izotope guys made the best FREE guide out there for understanding wtf mastering is and does.
THE mastering suite
This bundle has literally everything an in-the-box producer could need for mastering their mixdowns. All of the plugins work wonders (the harmonic exciter is my favorite, it does really cool stuff to your hi hats), and it really makes your final product shine when used correctly. A lot of people bounce audio out to a new session and then use Ozone, but I prefer to use it in the original session, although this is CPU-intensive and really about personal preference. If you are going to use it in-session, I recommend doing some A/B testing with other mastered tracks BEHIND these plugins using Sample Magic A/B or something similar.
