Stephan Engblom

"To be honest I’ve always felt insecure with mixing vocals and always felt it’s lacking that extra touch. All I can say, I don’t feel that anymore! Now I have Nectar 3 to “fix” the vocals so they sound like I always imagined them to."

Stefan Engblom

Dada Life

Andres Torres and Mauricio Rengifo

"Nectar 3 is a game-changer, like all the iZotope stuff. Now vocals are just a couple clicks away from ready."
