iZotope reveals Nectar 2

iZotope has announced the next version of the company’s vocal processing technology, Nectar 2, coming in October 2013.

“We were excited to revisit what made Nectar so ideal as a vocal processing plug-in,” said Brett Bunting, product manager for iZotope. “We’ve spent a lot of development time incorporating new ideas designed with our users in mind. Nectar 2 users won’t believe how quickly they’ll be able to recreate classic vocal sounds or invent brand new ones.”

With Nectar 2, add character to tracks with modelled plate reverb, harmonic saturation, and new creative effects. Stay in tune, remove distracting breaths without the need for audio editing, and transform a single vocal take into a harmonised ensemble.

Customers who purchased Nectar after 1 August, 2013 will receive a free upgrade to Nectar 2 upon release. Special upgrade pricing will be available for all previous Nectar and Nectar Elements customers upon release.

Nectar 2 can be used as plug-ins in your favourite host. Supported plug-in formats include 64-bit AAX (Pro Tools 11), RTAS/AudioSuite (Pro Tools 7.4-10), VST, VST 3, and Audio Unit.
