Nectar 3: Vocals, in the mix
Introducing Nectar 3, the most sophisticated set of tools designed for vocal production. Address every part of your vocal chain and get professional-sounding vocals in seconds with new machine learning features, stunning visualizations, and more.
From corrective to creative processing, all the way to the final polish, Nectar 3 ushers in a new era of mixing vocals with machine learning tools, modern workflows, and communication across your session.
Great vocals in isolation...
Vocal Assistant listens to your audio and gets you started with a custom preset, tailored to your unique vocal. Time consuming tasks like corrective EQ cuts, dynamics, and de-essing are performed with precision in seconds. Vocal Assistant will even intelligently set an optimal input level with Auto Level Mode to ensure a smooth performance.
...and in the mix
Vocals are a big part of the mix, but they're not the only part. By communicating with the included Relay plug-in, Nectar will help place your vocal at the forefront of the mix, moving other competing mix elements out of the way automatically. Vocal Assistant: Unmask will communicate with any instance of Nectar 3, Neutron 2 Advanced (available separately), or iZotope Relay (included with Nectar 3) to create the perfect nest for your vocal.
Professional clarity & polish
Nectar 3 is designed to work within any genre. In the audio examples below, we used Vocal Assistant, along with our own custom settings, to fit these vocals in the mix.
A match made in heaven: Melodyne 4 essential
iZotope has partnered with Celemony to include Melodyne 4 essential, giving you surgical, intuitive, and truly transparent pitch adjustment capabilities that are an industry standard in professional studios around the world. Nectar 3 is also bundled with iZotope RX Breath Control, which can intelligently detect breaths in dialogue or vocal recordings and automatically suppress them.
Catch every breath
Nectar 3 comes bundled with the magic of RX, the standard for audio cleanup and restoration. RX 7 Breath Control is designed to detect breaths in audio recordings and make them disappear, reducing time spent in the comping and editing stage.
The Vocal Chain Bundle and Music Production Suite 2 include even more time-saving restorative features from the RX family.
The pinnacle of audio plug-in design
Every module in Nectar 3 has been redesigned with your time and experience in mind. With new ways to interact with key module settings, a resizable interface, exciting metering animations, and new contextual selection settings, it’s a visual experience so smooth, you won’t want to go back to knobs and faders.
