iZotope Nectar Elements

I've just noticed that it's on sale at the moment.

£17 from Plugin Boutique in UK. $20.21 direct from iZotope, but you'd have to add VAT on if in Europe/UK and, presumably, local taxes elsewhere.

Time to see what's in the piggy-bank methinks... :lol:

That's a great price. To be honest it's the only iZotope plug-in I've not been able to get on with. It (or maybe Cubase) had an annoying habit of forgetting any tweaks & reverting to the original preset without warning. I'm sure it works great for some people though.

They're also doing Neutron Elements for the same price. There's probably not much in Neutron for the pros with great monitoring set-ups, but for those of us with less knowledge & less than ideal listening environments, it gets you in the right ballpark pretty quickly. It's like having a second pair of ears critically appraising each track & undoing any over enthusiastic EQ etc.

Innovation usually starts with someone thinking out loud.

Very quick test last night on spoken word - which is where the vast majority of my 'this needs fixing' work lies.

Some subtle changes which improved things slightly when in 'auto-only' mode. I'll do some more exploring later on the material for a podcast that I have to produce (contract production!) today.
