iZotope Nectar 3
Complete Vocal Processing Plugin
Introducing Nectar 3, the most sophisticated set of tools designed for mixing vocals. Address every part of your vocal chain and get professional-sounding vocals in seconds.
First introduced in 2010, Nectar has found a space in studios all over the globe, offering world-class processing designed to get to a professional result in seconds. With version 3, Nectar helps your vocal tracks sing by addressing each part of the vocal production chain, offering invaluable machine-learning features, innovative new signal processing, and communication across your session.
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.
EQ: Track down pesky resonances and remove them in real time with the innovative new EQ, featuring the new Follow mode, an innovative contextual UI, and enhanced fluid-style metering.
HARMONY: The beloved Harmony module has been redesigned and improved, with the ability to add four additional voices easily within a spacious, contextual interface. Add natural harmonies, doubles, and textures with ease!
COMPRESSORS: Two powerful compressor modules with four different emulation modes each give you ultimate flexibility in dynamic control for your vocals. Ensure an even performance and add natural coloration at any stage of the signal chain!
DIMENSION: The new Dimension module contains three different modulation-style effects for vocals: Phaser, Flanger, and Chorus. Use these tools to add natural space or energy, or intense, otherworldly sounds.
DE-ESSER: Reduce unwanted or exaggerated sibilance with Nectar 3's intuitive De-esser, now featuring an open, inviting interface that helps you quickly get to a perfect setting. Two clicks and you're done!
PITCH & AUTO-LEVEL: Set permanently at Nectar 3's input are the Pitch module and the new Auto Level Mode, which automatically rides the input gain to ensure a consistent performance. The new Limiter module is also now set to Nectar's output.
Like an extra pair of trusted ears, Vocal Assistant listens to your audio and gets you started by detecting and auto-adjusting level inconsistencies, identifying resonant peaks, timbre variations, and harsh frequencies. Vocal Assistant will intelligently set EQ nodes, analyze dynamics and set suggested compression settings, remove pesky sibilants, create space, ambience, and more. Once you’ve arrived at an optimal starting point, add your personal touch and tweak settings to taste.
Unmask directly communicates with the rest of your mix to place your vocal at the forefront by moving other mix elements out of the way. Through inter-plugin communication, 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.
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.
