iZotope Vocal Production Workshop at ASCAP EXPO


This past weekend, iZotope hit the road and gave the Treat Your Voice: Vocal Recording Workshop at the ASCAP “I Create Music” EXPO in Los Angeles. Dynamic control, pitch correction, mic placement, and more were all topics of discussion as the iZotope team took the audience through the capabilities of both Nectar Elements, and Nectar 2 Production Suite.

After exploring some of the presets in Nectar Elements, we dove into Nectar 2 Production Suite to finely tune the vocals in a light rock song, discussing the importance of frequency content, dynamic range, and sense of space in a mix.

Using plugins like Breath Control along with several of the modules in Nectar 2, including Equalizer, Compressor, Saturation and Reverb, this workshop showed how quick and easy it is to achieve a polished, professional sound and have the vocals sitting exactly where we want them in the mix.

If you were not able to make it to the workshop, take a look at our Mixing Guide for some vocal production advice and tips and try Nectar 2 Production Suite free for 10 days!
