Nectar's Reverb has been overhauled for a better sound, including improved workflow for dialing in great vocal reverb settings. Because of these changes, users may notice that sessions saved with Nectar Version 1.0 sound different. For guidelines on adjusting the Reverb of existing sessions in Version 1.1, please refer to this knowledgebase article.
Adds a "Non-formant preserving" mode, which allows you to turn formant preservation on or off. Small (less than 1.5 semitone) shifts that occur in subtle pitch correction often sound better with formant preservation turned off, while large shifts will be better with formant preservation on. Tip: Turning off formant preservation is also good for special effects (like the Chipmonk and Dark Lord Styles).
In supported hosts, dragging a note in the Manual Pitch Editor now creates a color highlight to better see the target pitch of the note you're dragging.
In supported hosts, dragging a note will also produce a tone so you can hear the target pitch of the note you're dragging.
Pitch transpositions now sound more natural due to a change in the envelope shape.
Optimizations to pitch correction algorithms for faster performance.
Adds Low, Medium, and High quality modes to the Doubler module. Note that the version 1.0 Doubler was the equivalent of the High quality mode.
Doubler CPU usage is dramatically lowered in Version 1.1 (5.7x at High quality and 13x at Low quality).
