Nectar 3 Plus Features

Vocal Assistant

Custom vocal presets in seconds

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.


(Improved!) Vocal Unmasking

Through inter-plugin communication, Vocal Assistant Unmask will help place your vocal at the forefront of the mix, moving other competing mix elements out of the way automatically.
