Nectar 4 Features

NEW! Audiolens

Audiolens is compatible with Nectar 4, 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.

NEW! Voices

Instant, easy vocal layers: find a preset similar to your desired sound, then tweak it to your liking. Available in Nectar 4 Standard & Advanced only.

NEW! Auto Level

ALM (Auto Level module) is an intelligent and transparent alternative to compressors. ALM provides consistent volume levels without introducing unwanted artifacts like traditional compressors, giving you a clean and natural sound. Available in Nectar 4 Advanced only.

NEW! Backer

Create 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. Available in Nectar 4 Standard & Advanced only.

*Only trained on with English speaking languages

NEW! 13 component plugins

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. Available in Nectar 4 Advanced only.

NEW! Vocal Assistant page
