Here's what Izotope say about the Ozone 9 Elements:
The brand new Ozone Elements delivers essential mastering tools in one affordable package. Balance your audio in stereo with an improved Imager, featuring a new “Stereoize” mode that can bring transparent width and depth to narrow mixes.
Quickly create a custom preset with Master Assistant, which listens to your audio and makes suggestions for loudness and tone. Work faster with improved plug-in performance, smoother metering, and resizable windows that let you see more of your sound without taking up your CPU. At the low cost of $129, it’s the easiest and most affordable way to get your music ready for primetime.
Turn narrow, dull audio into a full, impactful track with Ozone 9’s improved Imager. With the new “Stereoize II” mode, you’re able to add a more natural, transparent width to shape your soundstage. Use per-band controls to sculpt your image and get control of super-wide bass, harsh cymbals, and more. Avoid phasey, washy masters with multiple metering options that can tell you where you’re too wide, too narrow, or out of phase. For surgically sculpting your image (or blowing it up), Imager is a go-to for any mastering session.
