Vocal Assistant

One of the most challenging aspects of vocal mixing is tailoring your channel strip to the style and abilities of your vocalist. Vocal Assistant makes this easier than ever by analyzing the content of your vocal performance and generating an effects preset form-fitted to the nuances of your singer and your music.

Vocal Assistant: Unmask

In larger mixes, vocals often are competing with other instruments like guitars, pianos, and cymbals. Nectar 3 Plus helps you manage masking, with an improved Vocal Assistant Unmask that uses Inter Plug-in Communication to let you place your vocal at the forefront of the mix. Now you can control the EQ on your masking track, allowing you to scale back the Amount for more subtelty, or engage Dynamic and Sidechain mode for EQ that responds dynamically to the vocal or the masking source.

* Vocal Assistant: Unmask works in Nectar 3 Plus, Relay, and Neutron 3 Advanced



Included with Nectar 3 Plus, Relay is an easy utility plug-in that lets you adjust the gain, pan, and width of any track in your session. Relay also communicates with Nectar, Neutron, Insight, and other compatible iZotope plug-ins to help you balance and unmask your mix.
