iZotope adds something sweet to Elements with Nectar
Posted on: Wednesday 18th of July 2018
Nectar Elements, iZotope’s simplified vocal processing plug-in, now features the Vocal Assistant, powered by the company’s Machine Learning technology, which aims to adapt itself to the user’s vocal sound and choose the optimal settings from which you can work. With most of the complicated processing taking place behind the control panel, the user has just six sliders to play with. These enable you to adjust the amounts of compression, de-essing, tonal and subtractive EQ, pitch correction and reverb. Gain make-up keeps the plug-in output constant, and for musicians, students or post-pro editors with limited time, the quick-fix results look promising. The machine learning algorithms are similar to those found in iZotope’s other products Ozone and Neutron (reviewed Resolution V15.8).
Nectar Elements is the latest in iZotope’s range of easy-to-use audio mixing, mastering and repair plugins, which can be purchased together as The Elements Suite. This is currently available for $149/£139/€149, with the regular price being $199/£179/€199. For a limited time, crossgrade to Nectar Elements for only $49, or the full Elements Suite of 4 plug-ins for just $79.
