Quickstart Nectar Elements’s Styles are designed to give you a quick starting point for your own projects.

Every vocalist is different so no one preset will always work well for your audio. However we have attempted to provide a wide range of Styles that will help you find a good starting point for your own material.

Step 1: Select your Genre and Style The Genre and Style Selector tells Nectar Elements what style of vocals you're trying to produce, sets the default values for all parameters, and defines the behavior of Nectar Elements's controls.

Step 2: Adjust Styles to Taste The top row contains controls to modify the selected style. Use them to dial in the sound you are looking for and to experiment with creative variations.

These controls change and adapt based on the Style you have loaded.

Step 3: Adjust Tool Settings Accordingly The controls on the bottom of the screen contain tools for polishing your vocal recording. These controls are always available regardless of the Style you have loaded.

Global Menu Reset Clicking the Reset button clears the current working settings and loads Nectar Elements’s default state.

History Clicking the History button opens the History menu which allows you to recall and compares settings and adjustments. Learn more about the History menu here.

Options Clicking the Options button loads the Option Menu from which you can authorize your copy of Nectar Elements, access additional resources for working with Nectar Elements, adjust visual settings, and more. Learn more about Nectar Elements’s Options here.

Help You may click the Help button at any time to launch this Help Documentation.

Presets Clicking the Presets button launches the Preset Manager from which you can save your own settings for recall later. Learn more about the Preset Manager here.

Bypass Clicking the Bypass button will bypass Nectar Elements’s processing in your DAW allowing you to compare your vocal track with and without Nectar Elements.

Style Manager Nectar Elements's Genres and Styles are designed to allow you to take full advantage of the underlying signal processing in the most concise and creative way possible. Click on the Style selector at the very top of Nectar Elements's interface in order to select your desired Genre and Style from the drop down picker that appears.

When a Genre and Style is chosen, Nectar Elements's Main View will be configured to provide you with the correct settings, ranges, modules and parameters in order to get a great vocal sound within that particular Style.

Note: You can also use the arrow keys on your keyboard to scroll Up and Down between Styles and Genres. This can be especially helpful to audition the direction different styles will take your vocals.

You can then adjust your Style to taste using the sliders available in Nectar Elements's Main View.

Each Style will not only contain a different default sound, but also different customized sliders to adjust in Nectar Elements's Main View. If the default sound for any particular Style does not fit your audio exactly, adjusting the sliders in the Main View can help to get you closer to your desired sound.

Once you have the Style that works well with your audio, you can click ‘Close’ in the bottom right corner of the Genre/Style drop down picker in order to return to the Main View.

Interface Nectar Elements's Main View provides all of the intuitive controls necessary to enhance your vocal takes for any given vocal genre or style.

Basic Operation Start by selecting a Genre and Style using the large button at the top of Nectar Elements’s interface. From here, you can adjust your settings to taste.

Modules Nectar Elements’s Main View presents you with multiple modules and controls to clean up as well as bring out your incoming audio.

Note: Depending on the chosen style, the “Creative” module’s controls may be hooked up to processing that would be bypassed by the Levels or Space module power button. When this is the case, the module power button will not be displayed for the “Creative” module.

–  –  –

Note: While holding the Alt/Option key, clicking on the orange power buttons will temporarily bypass all modules except for the one module that was clicked on. This allows you to audition the effect of one module without hearing the effect of the others. While holding the Alt/Option key, clicking again on the module power icon will re-enable the modules that were originally bypassed.

Enhance Sliders Re-configured depending on your chosen Genre and Style, use these modules to bring out and sculpt your incoming vocals to fit your session and style.

Levels Use the Preamp and Loudness sliders to adjust the settings and timbres created at the beginning of your vocal chain.

Increase the Preamp control in order to bring up the initial gain of your vocals as well as add in extra color to fit your chosen style. Depending on the Style, this can be achieved by Saturating the signal with certain harmonic profiles, adjusting certain aspects of the EQ contour, or with Style appropriate compression controls.

The Loudness slider is most often used to bring up the overall comparative loudness of your incoming vocal audio. In most styles, this is done by adjusting varied compression parameters and other dynamics controls such as Limiting in order to even out your audio’s dynamic range.

Space Whether with added Reverb or Delay, the Space module’s controls can help to add depth and shine to your dry incoming audio. The particular flavor and timbre of the spatial processing that is added will be tailored to suit the Genre and Style you have chosen.

Use the controls to adjust how much processing will be added, the size of that processing, and how dark or bright the added space will be.

Creative Sliders Unique to each Genre and Style, the “Creative” module of Nectar Elements’s Main View can represent any number of different audio processes, all designed to further enhance or bring your particular style in a new direction.

Using combinations of doubling processing, EQ contours, creative delays and echoes, extra dynamics controls, or varied saturation profiles, the “Creative” controls act as a complement to the Levels and Space modules. Here are

some examples of Creative Sliders of some Styles:

Tool Sliders Use these modules to clean up and prepare your incoming audio for your session.
