The Nectar 2 Production Suite from iZotope is a vocal enhancement plug-in designed to alter the sound of vocals and dialogue recordings for music, video, and broadcast. It's useful for mixing engineers, remix artists, podcasters and voiceover artists who want to correct problems in vocal takes and adjust the character of their sound.

The software includes a streamlined overview panel with over 150 style presets ranging from classic to modern sounds. Metering tools provide visual feedback of the signal and automatic pitch correction allows for fixing errors in the original recording. The software also includes seven new creative effects in the FX module that can subtly or radically change the sound.

The software features an EMT 140-modeled plate reverb module that emulates the sound and control parameters of the classic Elektromesstechnik plate reverb unit from 1957. A harmony module provides the ability to easily add melodic backing vocals or create choruses using the software's automatic settings, or with the use of a MIDI controller.

A Pitch Editor plug-in that is bundled as part of the Nectar 2 Production Suite, makes manual pitch correction simple with enhancements that include a refreshed interface for graphical pitch editing and improved visual feedback, all within a resizable window. A Breath Control plug-in allows for removing unwanted breaths from recordings using intelligent detection that can separate breath sounds from sung or spoken vocals.

The best I've found for voiceover work

By Jeffery

from New Orleans

Comments about iZotope Nectar 2 Production Suite - Vocal Enhancement Software (Download):

The only thing I could ask for with this software is more presets. That's not to say the presets sre lacking...they aren't. Bot for a non-engineer like myself, the presets are fantastic. I use about 5 microphones in rotation, depending on the environment. It takes me about 15 seconds to find the best preset. I do fiddle with some other noise reduction plugins after the fact, but
i could use Nectar 2 by itself with some studying and experimentation.

For voice talent (and less, like me), this is the closest thing to a no fuss silver bullet. Get the best mic you can afford, and Nectar 2 will make it better.

    Comments about iZotope Nectar 2 Production Suite - Vocal Enhancement Software (Download):

    I'm a musician/producer, Nectar 2 vocal software is so simple to use. Nectar make vocals come to life with just the click of a mouse...Simply "Awesome" man!!! what's "GREAT" about it is the quality of sound...smooth pop, urban or contemporary verbs. This is the best vocal software I've ever worked with. The harmony stacks are out of this world. I've worked with many vocal software, but Nectar 2 is the one to beat. There's not one thing i can say bad about Nectar 2 Vocal enhancement. If you don't have it in you production arsenal...BUY IT TODAY!!!
