What’s new in iZotope Nectar 4 Advanced?
Reference any voice
Audiolens is compatible with Nectar 4 Advanced, allowing you to tone-match any vocal sound. Separate the vocal from your reference track and gain valuable information to create a starting point for your mix.
In sweet harmony
Instant, easy vocal layers: the Voices Module gives you the ability to create complicated layers for your vocal production without needing to learn voice-leading and harmonic motion. Find a preset similar to your desired sound, then tweak it to your liking.
Instantly consistent vocals
ALM (Auto Level Module) is an intelligent and transparent alternative to compressors. Placed at the start of your signal chain, it acts like a recording engineer, effortlessly managing vocal levels. ALM's Tame Noise feature distinguishes between sung and unsung vocal content, ensuring only tonal elements are leveled. This gets rid of the need for manual volume automation, saving you time and effort. ALM provides consistent volume levels without introducing unwanted artifacts like traditional compressors, giving you a clean and natural sound.
13 component plugins
Build your own chain
Nectar Advanced comes with a powerful suite of brand-new plugins. Integrate the power of Nectar into your DAW template and build your own custom chains for every vocal in your production.
Who’s backing you today?
With the AI powered Backer Module, you can now create artificial background singers that sit behind your main vocal. Pick from eight different styles or import your own acapella to further customize your sound. Finish up a demo with different flavors of vocalists, creatively destroy ad-lib tracks, or create something new altogether.
