      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.

            The program comes with many presets but most are not useful for my music. There are a couple that I did hit on. You can edit somewhat but it doesn't really tell you what your editing in a specific way. There are more generic names so you assume that Loudness is a Compressor or Limiter. Pitch Correction is only good for short background vocals as you would not want to leave it on for the whole lead vocal track. The De-esser is nice.
            Honestly, the best thing about it is the EQ. It has a spectrum analyzer overlay that I love.
            The product is worth the Stupid Deal price (hint). There are other products that are suppose to make mixing EASY (hint) but it is best to learn how to mix. Whatever this program can do you can get the same results with stock plugins. For the price I thought, "what the hell." I can see how the full version would be a totally different story with the ability to really tweak settings.

            Comments about iZotope Nectar Elements Vocal Processing Software:

            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.

              Their website has a demo version so try that before you buy. When I downloaded it I was never able to find a launch icon and never was able to get it launched. Total waste of money for me and it is the first time I have been disappointed in something from Musician's Friend. I probably won't order software from them again.

                    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.

                    Got the package in the mail and unlike the photo in the ad, all it was was a small cd size paper with a website and security key. This is a problem for me as my recording PC does not connect to the internet. I thought I was getting a disk. All was bit list, I was going to take it to a friend to have him put it on a flash drive for me, however one of my children found the small paper and did who knows what with it. So now I have no idea where it is. I called customer service and was told there was nothing they could do for me.

                            Comments about iZotope Nectar Elements Vocal Processing Software:

                            The program comes with many presets but most are not useful for my music. There are a couple that I did hit on. You can edit somewhat but it doesn't really tell you what your editing in a specific way. There are more generic names so you assume that Loudness is a Compressor or Limiter. Pitch Correction is only good for short background vocals as you would not want to leave it on for the whole lead vocal track. The De-esser is nice.
                            Honestly, the best thing about it is the EQ. It has a spectrum analyzer overlay that I love.
                            The product is worth the Stupid Deal price (hint). There are other products that are suppose to make mixing EASY (hint) but it is best to learn how to mix. Whatever this program can do you can get the same results with stock plugins. For the price I thought, "what the hell." I can see how the full version would be a totally different story with the ability to really tweak settings.
