    Personally dissapointed in Ozone 6. Ozone 5 had way better presets (and many of of them) and I personally find the new functionalities not that useful. So i'd personally recommend Ozone 5 xD

    Ozone 5 is worth trying. I would suggest also T-Racks. I mainly use the latter as mastering suite.

    For Mastering
    1. UAD-2 with plug-ins.
    2. Acqua Plugins and Nebula with expansions.
    3. Plugin Alliance, iZotope Ozone 5 Advanced, DMG Audio, FabFilter, Voxengo, Sonnox, WAVES, PSPaudioware, T-RackS, Nugen Audio, MeldaProduction.
    4. Native Instruments, Softube, Sonoris, Sonalksis, PLParEQ, Algorithmix, FLUX, Sound Radix Bundle, 112 dB, A.O.M. Factory, DDMF, Blue Cats, Solid State Logic Duende, Nomad Factory, Fielding DSP Reviver, some Soundtoys plugins maybe, Cytomic The Glue.
    5. Tokyo Dawn Labs, Vladg/sound, Variety of Sound, rs-met Engineers Filter, A1StereoControl (all free and sound good, also check bedroomproducersblog for good advice to choose free vsts for your needs).

    Good DAW for mastering, preferable Samplitude/Sequoia.
    Editors and restoration systems: iZotope RX4 Advanced or higher, Wavelab, Sound Forge. Additional restore-plugins: Acon Restoration Suite, WaveArts Master Restoration Suite

    Good monitoring systems (monitors, headphones, amplifiers), room equipment (bass traps etc.). Good sound card (audio interface) with high-quality ADC/DAC. Professional cables, connections and other commutation.
    Ears. Audio analyzers, reference tracks.
    Sample-rate converters like iZotope 64-bit SRC in RX4, FinalCD 0.17, SoX, Weiss Saracon, Voxengo r8brain, Adobe Audition's one, Brick (latest version, Mac only) (you can check them all on the website src.infinitewave.ca). The best SRC is to preserve maximum frequency range, good almost ideal (or gentler) filter (better maybe linear-phase), aliasing and distortions lower than -110 dB, like mentioned above.
    Good dithering system like iZotope MBIT+, PSP X-Dither or other.

    That's more than enough for professional digital mastering.

    Ozone 6 is excellent, the new dynamic EQ is amazing, you just need to learn how to use it and what to use it for. And I love the new interface, very smooth.

    My mastering chain is a mix of different things so I'll just tell you what I use, but not in any particular order

    - Fabfilter Pro-Q - my go to mastering EQ
    - Waves SSL compressor
    - Ozone Exciter
    - Ozone Imager
    - Ozone Dynamics
    - Fabfilter Pro-L - my go to limiter

    That right there is everything you need for an awesome mastering session. I occasionally might throw in some kind of other compressor for whatever reason I'm feeling on a certain day, but in general that's what I use.

    Excellent selection, fuad.

    The Fabfilter EQ and Limiter are my go-to processors as well. Although once you make the jump to the newer Pro-EQ 2, you'll never go back to the original. Totally amazing. Check out some features-
