Default iZotope Ozone Match EQ vs RX Match EQ

Match EQ is a fantastic workhorse for me in Post work. I routinely use it for matching a Boom mic to a Radio Mic, or an ADR VO. With the release of Ozone 9, I thought "great - now I can do all this right in Audio Suite within PT. No more need to back and forth".

Alas, unless I've not figured something out, this doesn't work in practice. The way Match EQ is implemented in Ozone is quite different in one respect - it is now a 2 stage processs, not a single stage one. In RX, I capture my reference, save as a preset, then throw literally anything at it and it just figures it out like magic. But now in the Ozone version, I need to recaputre the Apply To file for every bit of audio as it changes (radio mics sound very different in different scenarios, and of course VO mics sound different from both). If I just leave it set to my first settings, it doesn't reliablly get it right.

In practice, this is much more labaorious than the old method, so I'll be sticking to the RX incarnation. But important to stress - if you are using it in a context where there's a fixed reference AND a fixed Apply To, as you might well want to do in a music project, then its terrific.

Send clip to RX

I did. Workflow is great and smoother than Ozone for the capture. But of the three modules only one is new - reverb match - and that only works on certain kinds of material. Longer tail reverbs are fine - halls etc - small reflections such as domestic rooms and cars are quite hopeless. I found using Altiverb alongside their existing tools infinitely better.

But it does have potential. They need to keep at it and make reverb match genuinely work on a wide variety of sources. If they crack that then it will be a very useful tool. So didn't buy, but will be waiting for version 2.
