Nectar is a complete set of 11 vocal production effects combined in one plug-in that's designed to give you immediate results. Built-in Styles get the grunt work out of the way so you can focus on the creative finishing touches.
Features include automatic pitch correction, manual note editor, breath control, gate, compressors, saturation, EQ, de-esser, doubler, limiter, reverb, delay and tons of built-in Style presets.
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.
Start by selecting one of Nectar's dozens of Styles. Unlike typical presets, Styles configure a professionally-designed effect chain with producer-level controls like Clarity, Warmth and Sparkle. From there, narrow in on the vocal sound you want or experiment with the advanced modules to create a new sound. Either way, Nectar is designed with both the beginner and professional in mind - you choose the level of detail you want to control.
Breath Control - Automatically identifies breath sounds allowing you to either reduce the level of all breaths or normalize the breaths to a target level. Internally, uses a compressor for natural sounding reduction.
Automatic Pitch Correction - Select the key and correction speed and Nectar will automatically tune those out of tune notes. For creative uses, set the speed to 0 for the robotic pitch effect made popular by Cher, T-Pain and Kanye West. For more control, use the manual pitch correction.
Manual Pitch Correction - Graphically edit the melody and correction amount on individual notes. Control individual note transitions and even recompose the song by simply dragging the notes.
Compressors - Designed specifically for voice, the compressors are based on analog models of popular Optical and Solid-State hardware. The workflow is designed to make it trivial to set up routings like parallel compressors with post filtering that defines the Motown or New York sound.
De-Esser - Drawing from iconic hardware De-Essers, this module is designed to control the sibilance from s and similar consonants independent of level. You can set one "Ess" level, and it will intelligently process the entire vocal track, whether the loud chorus or the delicate verse.
Saturation - Add warmth and grit to your vocal with 5 saturation models including Analog, Retro, Tape, Tube and Warm. A unique graphical display and simple roll-off EQ makes it easy to sculpt your sound.
Doubler - Using high quality pitch shifting and a unique graphical interface, you can quickly set up a range of subtle to extreme effects. Adjust the gain, pan, pitch and delay of up to four separate voices for a distinctive vocal sound.
