Vocals, in the mix
Updated with improved Unmasking controls and key detection, Nectar 3 Plus is the most powerful audio plug-in for vocal production, polish, and mixing.
Control your Unmasking with iZotope Nectar Plus
Vocal Assistant: Unmask talks to other iZotope plug-ins to send information and clean up audio in your mix that’s clashing with your vocal. You can visualize the Unmasking via a new EQ window in Neutron, Relay, or Nectar 3, and control the effect with a new Amount slider. Turn on the Dynamic setting, and Nectar 3 Plus tracks the vocal and ensures the unmasking only occurs when the voice is present.
* Vocal Assistant: Unmask works in Nectar 3 Plus, Relay, and Neutron 3 Standard and Advanced
With intelligent, assistive vocal mixing, once time-consuming tasks like dynamics processing, EQ cuts, and de-essing can now be performed with precision in seconds.
Why iZotope Nectar 3 Plus?
A complete vocal chain
In other words, 12 vocal-focused processing modules offer the treatment you need for any type of vocal. Get DSP for harmonies, doubling, saturation, and much more.
Your new go-to vocal EQ
Indeed, Nectar 3’s powerful fluid EQs can track the harmonics of your vocal signal, letting you make cuts or boosts that follow your pitch.
Surgically sculpt and polish
Compress, de-ess, mix harmonies, and more within a fluid, resizable UI. Nectar 3 is a complete vocal production environment in one plug-in.
Nectar 3 Features
One of the most challenging aspects of vocal mixing is tailoring your channel strip to the style and abilities of your vocalist. Vocal Assistant makes this easier than ever by analyzing the content of your vocal performance. Generate effects preset form-fitted to the nuances of your singer and your music.
Vocal Assistant: Unmask
In larger mixes, vocals often are competing with other instruments like guitars, pianos, and cymbals. Nectar 3 Plus helps you manage to mask, with an improved Vocal Assistant Unmask that uses Inter Plug-in Communication to let you place your vocal at the forefront of the mix. Now you can control the EQ on your masking track, allowing you to scale back the Amount for more subtlety, or engage Dynamic and Sidechain mode for EQ that responds dynamically to the vocal or the masking source.
* Vocal Assistant: Unmask works in Nectar 3 Plus, Relay, and Neutron 3 Advanced
Included with Nectar 3 Plus, Relay is an easy utility plug-in that lets you adjust the gain, pan, and width of any track in your session. Relay also communicates with Nectar, Neutron, Insight, and other compatible iZotope plug-ins to help you balance and unmask your mix.
