The box for Music Maker Performer 2019 and website says iZotope Ozone Essentials is included but it's not on the disc and not available from the store within the program. How do I get this? I tried the technical support but it says my registered product is too old!
I finally got this program after reinstalling twice and it finally appeared in the download manager when choosing "download all purchased content". To get technical support I had to make sure I was logged out and on logging back in I had access to email support.
Just to add to what @Graham-Hawker wrote, can we be clear about exactly which version of iZotope Ozone 8 you are asking? This thread refers to Ozone Essentials, there is also Ozone Elements, both of which are, essentially, cut-down versions of the full Ozone or even Ozone Advanced.
However, whichever version you have you have to install the "core" program, including the plug-in .dll files (taking care to note the precise directory where these are installed). Then, assuming you have any version of Music Maker other than the Free version, you need to go to Program Settings (the cog icon, or shortcut P)>Folders>Add VST plug-in path and navigate to the folder where those .dll files are stored. MM should then read the contents of the folder and you should find them by going to the header of any track, clicking the "FX" button, selecting the option "Audio FX Rack track". This opens a screen, at the bottom left corner of which you should see a + and a - button. Click the + and the last entry on the small screen that opens will be "VST FX"; clicking that will show the complete list of properly installed and available VST effects you have, which should include Ozone.
However, this will not be the case if you are running the free version of MM since it does not allow for the use of third-party VSTs.
