This new plug-in (Windows XP, x64, Vista 7; Mac OS 10.5 or later) includes a complete vocal processing toolkit that features dozens of professionally designed vocal production styles powered by 11 processing modules. Users select an included style and then customize it with faders tailored to that style. For further customization of a vocal sound, users can switch to the Advanced view and access all of the controls of the underlying modules that power the plug-in.
Nectar includes pitch correction, breath control, compressors, de-esser, doubler, saturation, EQ, gate, limiter, delay and reverb modules. Breath control offers users a Target mode that allows them to specify the desired level of breaths detected in the track. Pitch correction includes both auto and graphical pitch-editing controls.
The plug-in is available as RTAS/AudioSuite, VST, MAS, AU and DirectX. Pricing is $299; an introductory price of $199 USD will be offered for the first 30 days after release, currently scheduled for mid-November 2010.
