OVERVIEW

All the essentials from Izotope's Nectar vocal processing software.

Getting a great vocal sound doesn't need to be hard. Whether you're recording or you're mixing, Nectar Elements makes vocal treatment a snap. Get great results quickly by loading one of Nectar's professionally-designed Style presets in genres like rock, pop, folk, soul, and voiceover and dialogue. From there, easily customize your sound by adjusting special per-Style controls like Presence, Drive, and Grit. Need to fix pitch problems, remove pesky "ess" sounds, or reduce room noise in your recording? Nectar Elements has you covered there, too. With 10 powerful vocal processors working hard behind the scenes, Nectar Elements offers simple, intelligent controls that let you focus on your sound, not your setup.

Define your Style. Make it your own.
Nectar Elements features dozens of Styles that let you choose between a variety of classic and creative vocal styles. Quickly get the '60s Motown sound, the early '90s grunge rock sound, a radio-ready podcasting sound, a subtle jazz vocal or a modern pop sound—everything from delicate improvements to highly-produced robotic pitch effects. Each Style includes special per-Style controls like Clarity, Warmth, and Sparkle, as well as standard controls like Levels and Space.

Levels: Quickly get punchy vocals with the loudness you need for consistency across your tracks.
Space: Help settle your vocals into your mix with delays and reverbs that add ambience and "smoothing."
Liven up your vocal sound, from gentle warmth to aggressive grit, with Styles that add vintage tube and tape harmonics.
Thicken up your voice with Styles that feature doubling effects, adding up to four voices with varied pitch and panning.
Explore all the Styles to experiment with additional per-Style controls, each designed to perfectly complement the Genre and Style of choice.

Nobody's perfect. Let Nectar Elements fix it.
Even the biggest superstars might need a little help here and there. Bring out the best in any vocal performance with the corrective tools in Nectar Elements.

EQ: Enhance and sculpt the tone of your voice, or adapt any Style to suit your sound's needs.
De-Esser: Easily remove unwanted "ess" sounds and sibilance using just one intelligent slider.
Gate: Remove room tone and other unwanted noise quickly to get vocals crisp and broadcast-ready.
Automatic Pitch Correction: Fix out-of-tune notes so you can keep those "almost perfect" takes.

Two simple steps. One perfect vocal.
Pick your Genre and Style: Nectar Elements comes with dozens of built-in Styles that set up the plug-in's Main View and the underlying vocal effects. Experience the power of 10 vocal processors with just one click.

Adjust in the Main View: Each Style has unique producer-level controls that let you quickly adjust settings like Presence, Drive and Grit.

      I recently added Nectar Elements to my collection of vocal processing plugins. To date, I have the Waves Maserati collection and the Waves JJP vocal plugins.

      Nectar Elements is similar to the Waves plugins in that the processing chain has been put together for you and you have some control over the individual parameters; eq, delay, etc. I like the amount of control that you have in Nectar. It allows you to tweak the large library of presets to fit into your mix.

      The preset library is impressive and the quality is top notch. I spent a couple of hours going through the presets with an existing vocal track. Several times I found myself latching on to a preset and tweaking the parameters and saving my own preset. It should be mentioned that the parameters that you can adjust vary by preset style. Some will have settings for the delay and reverb, others might have a chorus. In all of them you can adjust the eq.

      Not having formal training as an engineer and years of experience working with compressors and EQs, the vocal processing plugins I have help an enormous amount. For some styles, particularly when working with female vocalists, the Waves JJP Vocal is an instant perfect fit. I can see giving Nectar a first look now with a track.

      Overall this is a great sounding addition to my toolbox. I got it on a Stupid Deal offering, but I'd find it to be an excellent value at full price.

      This is a pretty good vocal fixer upper, mostly works using presets. Can't really get under the hood, you are left with only broad edits using the modules. That being said, the presets sound good and there are a lot of them to wade thru. The pitch correction module is a little disappointing, somewhat glitchy with not a lot of tweaking available for fine tuning, it does work okay with slight intonation problems, but not too well when massive tuning help is needed.

      Comments about iZotope Nectar Elements Vocal Processing Software:

      I'm always looking for new tools to help improve the quality of my recordings and track mixes. This product was inexpensive (on sale at the time) and it does a decent job of allowing you to get the type of sound you are looking for, for making minor VOX tweaks and doing minor VOX clean-up. It doesn't work miracles for your VOX tracks but it does what it intends to do pretty well.

      I would like to have the ability to make more adjustments than is available but afterall, it is designed to be simple to use.

        Comments about iZotope Nectar Elements Vocal Processing Software:

        Bought to try before purchasing Nectar2. The program slowed my system down with a single mono vocal wave for testing. In Samplitude I counted 328 errors in 12 seconds of playback. I can normally run around 40 tracks without any errors at 24bit 48khz. I waited a week to receive an empty cardboard billfold, then still had to download the program. Glad I made a CD back up. Now I have a nice drink coaster. Glad it was on sale, but would have been happier with same value's worth of junk food. Out of fairness, the presets are useable if you don't know how to acheive the same sound with separate VSTs. The idividual moduals ;however, are very week. Ok for a beginner, but not for professional use.

              Comments about iZotope Nectar Elements Vocal Processing Software:

              I have many microphones from good to bad. This will take an average microphone like a NT-1A or Studio Projects C1 and make it sound awesome. With a good mic like an AKG214 is will only marginally sound better. So you're better off spending less on a mic and using this software. Loudness is so so. Reverb is so so. Presets are awesome. I like acoustic pop. Desser is not bad but not awesome. Maybe the full version has better control. I'm very satisfied with this person. Can't beleive that people are giving it low ratings as a result of not being able to install it correctly. Works awesome with Reaper as a VST. I click on add FX and the interface comes up for minor adjustments. Everything is located centrally without the need to spend 15 minutes coordinating half a dozen plugins instead. Happy I got this. Returning an expensive mic since my MXL910 with upgraded RK-7 sounds super awesome. There may be other plugins out there that are better if you have the time and more money. But this will give you studio quality sound with an average mic. I hope Nectar improves on this product or has good upgrades. It's a keeper.

              Nice easy program to add preset vocal effects to a track. I can get the same results or better doing it myself but it takes drastically longer. Easy to install and use if you know how to use your DAW and effects with it. Apparently this is not common knowledge though reading the reviews. Definately a waste of shipping and paper to ship me the code. I wish musicians friend would have just emailed it to me so I could have used it that day and not waited for it to come in the mail.

              I expected, based on the instructions, to have immediate access to online authorization but I didn't get it until I changed preferences to include VST in the layout view. I spent an inordinate amount of time trying to start and authorize the program. After several searches I found the answer. Once that was done it worked as advertised. Occasionally It gives me static when I start playback. I have to stop and restart to get rid of the static.

Tried several net searches but couldn't find an answer to the issue. I'm not sure if this is a case of, "You get what you pay for" or just a blind spot in my brain.
