With the introduction of Ozone 10, we have made the difficult decision to discontinue the Ozone standalone application. While we know that many people have grown to love and rely on this app, the usage analytics showed that only 3% of Ozone users were using the standalone application. Meanwhile, adding new features and maintaining existing code in both the standalone app and Ozone plugins proved to be a large burden slowing down our development teams. By focusing our efforts on the plugins, we can develop more efficiently and add new DSP and assistive capabilities to the core experience that the majority of customers are using.
We know that this means that some people have lost a workflow they love and we are taking that feedback in as we hear it. It's important to note that the Ozone standalone app and the Ozone plugins have always included the same features. If your previous workflow included using the standalone app, we would recommend you make a brand new DAW session file with one stereo track, add Ozone to this track, and then import your stereo mix.
