The iZotope VEA or Voice Enhancement Assistant will help improve the quality of recorded speech for your podcasts and YouTube video content.


Using iZotope’s professional technology from the RX, Ozone, and Nectar plug-ins, VEA becomes a simple and effective three-knob solution for improving your speech quality and intelligibility.

With the content creator market in its current boom, having professional audio quality is more important than ever. While not everyone has the budget or skill set to work with premium vocal processing hardware, VEA provides an accessible option for all.

iZotope VEA: The Vocal Enhancement Assistant

The VEA interface is centred around three controls: Clean, Shape, and Boost. From the left, the Clean control introduces noise-reduction processing into the signal path. So many of us record in potentially noisy environments, so this is certainly a useful tool.

Next, in the center, we have the Shape control which gives you more polished and consistent speech. We’ve all wondered how they get that magically punchy and pristine broadcast vocal sound, so this gives you a quick and effective foot in the door.

Finally, the Boost control on the right is like an instant “voice of god”. This adds weight and presence to voice recordings, giving them a more formidable overall character. It might not grant you Rick Rubin’s voice, but your content will surely come across with more authority.
