iZotope has released Nectar 2 Production Suite. They say that, designed specifically for voice, Nectar 2 harnesses the power of iZotope's award-winning vocal technologies to quickly and easily treat your voice to sweet results. Whether you're tracking or mixing, Nectar 2 is designed to deliver professional vocals fast.
Brett Bunting, Product Manager at iZotope, told us, "When developing Nectar 2, we focused on adding cutting edge tools like the new Harmony and FX modules, as well as classic tools that have made vocal recordings sound great for decades, like the new EMT 140-modeled plate reverb. By providing all the tools necessary to create a unique vocal chain, we're excited to make working with vocals even more inspiring for our users."
Exclusive to the new Nectar 2 Production Suite, two additional plug-ins are included for perfecting your vocal sound. iZotope says that Pitch correction is simpler than ever with the new Pitch Editor plug-in, and you can remove distracting breaths without tedious, time-consuming editing with the new Breath Control plug-in.
