Overview Mode makes getting the perfect vocal sound easy

Dialing in the perfect vocal sound with Nectar 2 is easy. When you work in Overview Mode, all you have to do is select the perfect preset from a wide selection of genres and styles. There are complete vocal chain presets for everything from cutting-edge pop to old-school Motown. Nectar 2's simple overview window lets you adjust each parameter of the effects chain without wading through the minutia. Plus, each style comes with its own custom parameters for tweaking multiple settings at once, such as Presence, Drive, Depth, Clarity, Warmth, Sparkle and Bite. Getting great vocals fast couldn't be easier!

Dive in for total under-the-hood tweaking in Advanced Mode

If you like to get tweaky with your sound, simply switch Nectar 2 over to Advanced Mode and dive in! Each of the processors has its own in-depth menu. Want to add modern hard-tuning to a blues-style preset? No problem. Or you can crank up the De-Esser and Breath Control settings on an old-time radio style preset. You can even completely rearrange the whole effects chain with drag-and-drop simplicity or start from scratch and make your own custom presets. When you have iZotope Nectar 2, there's no end to what you can do with your vocals!

Get creative with powerful pitch correction, harmony, and effects

Nectar 2 adds a ton of goodies to your sonic arsenal, including an amazing graphic pitch editor, a fully loaded harmony engine, and amazing new effects.

Pretty good, but could be better

I'm still just getting used to this plugin, and it has some great features. Pretty much a "one stop shop" for processing vocals. I wish the reverb was a little more adjustable, but as I say, I'm still getting to this and haven't delved into it real deeply so far. I love the simplicity of the de-esser, and what's more, it works. The EQ works well also. I'm looking forward to working more with the harmonizer, which I haven't quite figured out yet, but I think it can become a great tool. Nectar 2 has a lot of presets, which create a good starting point. IZotope makes a good product here, but there is no manual available for it and their "tutorial" videos are really only overviews that function more as a sales tool than an instructional one. But with more time, I think this plugin will become one of my go-to plugins.

Well, it's interesting..

I bought Nectar 2 because it was on sale, and because I'm always on the lookout for the plugin that will make my vocals sound better than they are. Honestly, it's a bit of a letdown. The tape saturation is the only part of it that I've found really useful. Most of the effects sound a little too digital-perfection. I haven't yet played with the harmony module, so maybe it will turn out to be useful - and I haven't yet figured out how to get the pitch correction module to not crash on launch with a file permissions problem, although admittedly I haven't tried that hard either. It's not useless, for sure, but it's also not the end-all-be-all of vocal processing.

Nectar 2

I took the plunge and bought Nectar 2 because I wanted to upgrade from Nectar elements and also because I had been very happy with other iZotope products (Ozone 5 and Alloy 2). Unfortunately, I am a little disappointed with Nectar 2. I really don't like the sound of any of their presets, and I just haven't been able to get the sound out of it that I want. It may be that I just don't have the expertise to be able to use it effectively, but if I had it to do over again, I probably would have just stuck with the Nectar Elements which I think worked as well or even better for my needs.
