Video: iZotope Nectar 2 Vocal Processing Plugin

The iZotope Nectar 2 at work

Vocals are one of the most – if not the most – important parts of a track. Laying and mixing vocals well is as integral to the song as it is a headache for the vocalist and engineer. But iZotope's Nectar 2 Vocal Processing Plugin works to remedy the difficulties often associated with this arduous process.

First, Nectar 2 takes the edge off of actually laying vocal tracks by allowing for low-latency tracking, removing that long and often distracting delay time between singing and hearing it back in your headphones. You're also able to choose a variety of filtered presets (organized by music genre) for your vocal tracks, so it's even easier to marry the clean vocals with the existing style of your track. Harmonies are a breeze with Nectar's plugin, too, as you can set the key your song is in (or let Nectar detect it for you) and apply harmonies digitally. Based on your preferences, you can make the harmonies sound completely organic or totally robotized and everything in between.

Check out the video above for a more detailed looked at the Nectar 2 Vocal Processing Plugin with iZotope's Evan Allen and Matt Murray. And if you like what you see, head over to SYNC to pick it up for your next session!
