iZotope has announced Nectar, a new plug–in which includes a complete vocal processing toolkit. Nectar includes everything users need to quickly find the vocal sound they are looking for.
Nectar offers dozens of professionally designed vocal production styles powered by eleven processing modules. Users will select an included style and then customize it with faders tailored to that style. For further customization of their vocal sound, users can switch to the Advanced View and access all of the controls of the underlying modules that power the plug-in.
"Nectar takes the pain out of vocal processing," says Hart Shafer, Vice President of Product Management for iZotope. "The combination of its innovative style-specific interface and access to eleven advanced modules mean that users can quickly dial in great vocal sounds without being creatively restricted."
Nectar includes Pitch Correction, Breath Control, Compressors, DeEsser, Doubler, Saturation, EQ, Gate, Limiter, Delay, and Reverb modules. Among other innovations, Breath Control offers users a target mode, which allows them specify the desired level of breaths detected in the track. Pitch Correction includes both auto and graphical pitch editing controls.
iZotope Nectar is ideal for audio engineers, voice over artists, singer/songwriters, recording enthusiasts, podcasters, and anyone else who records sung or spoken vocals. Its dozens of styles cover genres including: Alternative & Indie, Blues/R&B, Classical, Country, Dance & Electronica, Hip Hop & Rap, Jazz, Pop, Rock, and Spoken Word.
