iZotope has announced an all-new iteration of their award-winning vocal processing technology, Nectar. Available October 2013, Nectar 2 provides analog character to your vocal tracks with a comprehensive vocal production suite of digital plugins.

“We were excited to revisit what made Nectar so ideal as a vocal processing plug-in,” says Brett Bunting, Product Manager for iZotope Inc. “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.”

Nectar 2 can bring life to vocal tracks with modeled plate reverb, harmonic saturation, and new creative effects. The audio suite includes pitch editing, automatic breath removal, harmonization, and much more.
