You'll always have backup singers by your side with Nectar 2's new Harmony module. Want great-sounding harmonies quickly? Nectar 2 intelligently generates in-key harmonies using the lead vocal as a guide. Feeling more hands-on? Define your own custom harmonies by playing notes on your MIDI controller. Whichever method you choose, Nectar 2 provides flexible, natural-sounding vocal accompaniments to enrich your vocal production.
There's nothing like a reverb for creating rich, harmonic space and presence for your vocals. Inspired by a timeless classic, Nectar 2's reverb is fully revamped to model the iconic EMT 140 plate reverb. Combining retro feel with modern technology, the Reverb module captures the distinctive warmth and density of the EMT 140 while providing unique controls that were physically impossible in the original device.
Real-time Pitch Correction
Effortlessly correct off-key notes in your vocals automatically with real-time Pitch Correction. Nectar's Pitch Correction algorithm preserves the original formants and timbre of your vocals to give you more natural-sounding results, rather than scaling the formants along with the pitch.
Pitch Editor [Production Suite]
Stay in tune without ever leaving your DAW. The new Pitch Editor plug-in, bundled as part of the Nectar 2 Production Suite, makes manual pitch correction simpler than ever. Nectar 2's enhancements include a refreshed interface for graphical pitch editing and improved visual feedback, all within a resizable window. With a workspace that's easy to navigate and a workflow that's easy to follow, your vocal track will be pitch-perfect in no time.
Breath Control [Production Suite]
Automatically remove unwanted breaths from recordings with the new Breath Control plug-in, bundled as part of the Nectar 2 Production Suite. Featuring intelligent detection that can separate breath sounds from sung or spoken vocals, the Breath Control saves you from time-consuming and tedious manual editing. Nectar will take your breath away, but keep you sounding natural.
Tired of traditional vocal treatments? The new FX module is your new vocal playground. Unleash your creative potential with 7 new effects that allow you to reimagine your sound, whether it's dark, dramatic, or completely destructive. Experiment with deeper customization via tempo controls and the ability to adjust the FX signal flow in a series or parallel.
Recreate classic and modern vocal styles at the click of a button with over 150 new presets in genres like Pop, Rock, Hip Hop, Indie, Jazz, and Voice Over & Dialogue. Each preset is a custom configuration of Nectar 2's modules, giving you a professionally designed effects chain for immediate results, along with the power to edit and customize as you please.
Sibilance, or distracting "ess" sounds, can plague vocal tracks of all kinds, whether sung or spoken. Reduce unwanted or exaggerated sibilance with Nectar 2's intuitive De-Esser, primed for smooth results thanks to extensive hardware modeling inspired by the DBX 902 De-Esser.
As a first step to vocal enhancement, add tonal clarity and presence with Nectar's transparent EQ. Featuring the best of iZotope's award-winning EQ design, you'll get high-quality processing, a wealth of filter options, and a flexible graphical interface.
Use Nectar 2's Compressor to shape the dynamics of your vocal track, whether you wish to reduce the dynamic range of a recording, make the track more consistent in volume, or increase its average level. With a workflow that makes it trivial to set up parallel compressors with post filtering, you can instantly capture signature sounds like the Motown vocal flavor.
