If you don’t know anything about mastering or mastering software, this guide is a great place to start. Sure, we think you should use iZotope’s Ozone (izotope.com/ozone) to master your audio…you certainly could. But we’ve learned so much from the audio community over the past 10+ years that we’re happy to give something back in return: a guide that’s useful for everyone who wants to learn more about mastering. As a
result, this guide can be freely copied or distributed for non-commercial purposes.
If you don’t fully understand mastering but already have Ozone, this guide can help you better understand the powerful sound-shaping tools at your disposal. Each chapter demonstrates many useful concepts that you can apply to your next mastering project. You can also follow along with the free, 10-day trial of Ozone (izotope.com/ozone).
If you already have Ozone and already know the basics of mastering, this guide can show you new tricks and techniques that are possible in Ozone’s modules. Just read through and say “Yeah, I knew that” when appropriate for the other parts.

I was doing everything wrong until I read this.
Some parts will be worth reading even if you don't have Ozone.
