iZotope has announced the release of Nectar Elements, the latest addition to the Nectar family of vocal plug-in effects.
Built on the same award-winning DSP as Nectar, Nectar Elements features an easy-to-use interface designed with the singer-songwriter, podcaster, or home recordist in mind. With ten vocal processing effects working behind the scenes, Nectar Elements simplifies vocal production, allowing users to focus on their sound, not their set-up.
“By introducing Nectar Elements, iZotope is pleased to offer single-click vocal production to a broader set of users,” says iZotope Product Manager, Brett Bunting. “Our vocal product line is focused on great sound and simple workflow. With Nectar Elements, anyone can quickly explore a wealth of complete vocal sounds, each with unique and intuitive control.”
Nectar Elements features dozens of Style presets that let you choose between a variety of classic and creative vocal styles, from Motown to Grunge to radio-ready podcast. Easily and quickly adjust the simple controls to find your voice and make it shine.

Voxengo has released version 2.8 of Voxformer, a multi-functional vocal channel strip plugin for Windows and Mac.
The coolest feature of Voxformer is its one-knob vocal compressor. Using only a single knob, you can get a tight, open and definitive professional vocal sound with an excellent articulation in no time.
You do not have to worry about common ratio and make-up gain controls since they are automatically selected by the advanced compression algorithm while attack and release parameters are stored in a mode preset. Moreover, Voxformer features two compressors of this type, allowing you to apply either a two-band or a two-stage (serial) vocal compression.
Changes in Voxformer v2.8
The EQ curve is now hidden when the equalizer is set to “Off”.
Spectrum mode presets are now shared between all Voxengo plug-ins.
Voxformer for Windows and Mac (VST/AU) costs $69.95 USD.
