Honestly, if it saves time and gets me where I want to go, I couldn't care less about the whole machine learning thing. It's a tool...and if it got me results fast - that's amazing. Just wondering if anyone hasd any experience with it...I'm considering upgrading my whole Izotope Bundle - I've loved Ozone 8 Advanced.
Haven't used the newest one. But to me it just WAY too much of a computer hog and while it works for the most part. Something about never worked well for me to the point where I just stopped using. Especially after I got over the "Honey moon" phase of it.

I have two different Elements versions of it and had the possibility to sniff into the advanced 8 version. I really like it. I kept the old Elements version for a death metal vocal preset that I really found to be spot on with some voices. The newer Elements version did offer less to me but is nice nevertheless. The Advanced version has some really cool modules, that I liked while testing, there was a nice harmonizer thing where you could place the harmonized voices in the room behind the original, which sounded really cool and can be used in subtle amounts to really fatten up a voice nicely with new colors. All in all I would rate these very cool tools. The "machine learning thing" in iZotope I consider to be quite amazing from the idea behind them, quite sophisticated and giving not bad results at all for bringing you on the right track to go on from there, in Ozone this is pretty good... I am very interested in what the version 9 brings to their plugin suites and how people rate these ....

I have messed around with it some. I like it better for vocals than trying to use Neutron. It's faster and more in the range of what I appreciate.But honestly I'm trying to learn to make these moves with EQ/dynamics more on my own with tools like Fab Filter or my UAD stuff.
So I've tried Nectar to see what it suggests and then move over to another plugin to see if I can replicate that and how it got there.Certainly not faster with that method!!! But I'm not hiring myself out in the same manner you are. I certainly would not be afraid to use Nectar in a professional mix. You can always tweak the suggestions.
