The sample rate displays 48khz 16 bit WAV. My playback and render settings are both extreme HQ.

The important thing is whether your files match that sample rate. Are there any blue circles with i in them above the audio? If you select a piece of audio, hit F2 and then click on the Properties... button what does it say?

Also - are you using and processing intensive reverbs?

It says Bits/sample: 32 (float)

Render the entire project without Ozone 7. Load the wave in a new project and then apply Ozone 7. That way you can test if Ozone 7 is the problem.

Good plan! :thumbup:

When I'm working on music I'll usually treat the mixing and the mastering as two discrete activities. I regard Ozone as a mastering tool.
