If you are still getting clipping with Ozone, it's likely a signal path issue, meaning that you have inserted Ozone somewhere other than LAST in the signal path.K1TTENM1TTEN wrote:Haha, alrighty, so I am going to eat a nice fat piece of humble pie and admit that I still have no idea how to use this thing. I have never really attempted the whole mastering process within Reason, so I've actually never used any of the "master inserts," I don't really quite understand the concept of BUSing, and usually do all of my effects chains on each individual channel/instrument. I know that last part is high inefficient and chews through DSP usage, so I want to learn how to use Reason's mastering the "right" way.
I have read through the Ozone PDF guide, and I understand what a maximizer is in comparison to a limiter/compressor. But my issue is I am still getting a bunch of clipping with Ozone. I obviously don't know how to use it, so can we perhaps make a step-by-step guide with pictures for idiots from where to actually place this, what the cable routing looks like and why, what a good base setting is, the difference between "control out" and mixboard outs, and what knobs need to be adjusted on the mixing console? I really want to learn how to do this and honestly have been too prideful to ask, but at this point my pride is negatively effecting my mix, so at this point I am bidding my pride adieu, haha.
Basic signal path concepts are key to working with any audio system IMO, and I'm happy to help with these concepts if there are questions, especially since that's totally related to the topic of this thread!
