Update: iZotope Nectar 3.1 – Improved Performance, Added Communication with Neutron, and More!
iZotope has updated Nectar for faster performance, added communication with Neutron Mix Assistant, and there’s many bug fixes, including signal chain slider sensitivity.
Nectar 3 is 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.
What’s new in Nectar 3.1?
Use Nectar 3.1 with Neutron’s Mix Assistant
With the launch of Mix Assistant, Neutron 3 enabled our customers to balance levels in their mix using inter-plugin communication. Mix Assistant is a time-saving feature that talks to any instance of Neutron or Relay to tap into your mix and provide you with a starting point.
We’re pleased to announce that we’ve now added support for Nectar 3 in Mix Assistant as well.
Psst! Did you know you can also use the included Visual Mixer (available also as a free download) plug-in to initiate Mix Assistant or manually adjust the gain, pan, and width of any Neutron or Relay in your session? Get it free.
Performance enhancements in Neutron inspired us to bring some of these enhancements over to Nectar. Although made specifically for vocals, users who use Nectar in multiple instances, or who have multiple vocal tracks in their session, will see up to 30% improvement in processing power and CPU utilization. Load more instances of Nectar without taxing your system—boo yah!
Bug fixes, including signal chain slider sensitivity
We heard from some customers who were not able to dial in the exact setting they wanted on our signal chain sliders. We’ve adjusted sensitivity to help those looking for more specific settings, and you should see a much better result now.
In addition, we’ve done some general bug fixing and cleanup of UI issues some users were experiencing.
How to get your update
If you’re already a Nectar owner, you can download the latest update for free by initiating Nectar on any track in your session and looking for the update indicator icon, or launch Product Portal from your desktop.
