Any goodwill attached to those brands rest with the brand owner. If you have never experienced what it can do, then download the demo and spend some time experimenting — and prepare yourself to be amazed as you defy audio gravity. It is priced at the high end for vocal-processing software, but it also goes well beyond basic vocal processing. You can even tweak the volume of individual notes within a chord. Any change in this material is interpreted by the software in a musically intelligent manner and the result will always sound natural. Melodyne extracts the pitch and the rhythm, and provides an area in which to play with the audio material.

Notes can be selected, edited, copied or deleted across track frontiers. You get tools for editing all aspects of a Blob. The printed manual and online documentation are excellent. Depending upon the audio material, Melodyne employs either the Polyphonic Sustain strings, organs… or Polyphonic Decay pianos, guitars… Algorithm to obtain optimal sound quality in each case.

Beneath the surface, state-of-the-art software technology is at work — optimized for the latest operating systems, fully compatible with both 32- and 64-bit environments. Because Melodyne3 is so smart in that way, the Formant Shift Character, Stretch Position and Stretch Shape controls of old have been dropped because stretching can now be performed unobtrusively at any place along the audio, and it is no longer necessary to configure Melodyne note-by-note. If you do not wish to use the iLok dongle, you can still authorize your Melodyne 3. The Correct Pitch macro lets you snap slightly out-of-tune notes precisely to their correct pitches or, if you prefer, closer to the correct pitch. Melodyne opens the way to a multitude of useful, fascinating and inspiring applications.
No longer limited to simple melodies. This means you can make even extreme changes in the timing of notes without their transients becoming corrupted or their envelopes assuming unnatural forms. This is because only a few tracks are generally required in this situation. The results are equally good with vocal or instrumental melodies — all those stale-sounding melody loops in your sample collection can now be reshaped to provide considerably more variation. Apple Loops and Acid files. That's the easiest way to accomplish basic pitch and formant correction.
For an existing license, you will receive two activations: if one of them is transferred to iLok, one free activation per license will remain. They'll sound as if they had always been that way. When you change the pitch of connected notes, the transitions between them are preserved. Just click on the movie link to play a lesson. This way, while you are making detailed adjustments and improvements, the overall musical picture remains clearly in view; and you can treat choral tracks or backing vocals as a unit as you work on their voice-leading, intonation or timing. Select notes from as many tracks as you like and correct their intonation or timing in one go. While the top-of-the-range Studio version of Melodyne is not cheap, it is capable of jaw-dropping results.
This Course can only be played using a subscription. So you can work even more closely and precisely on your music and obtain still higher sound quality from your editing. The Editions of Melodyne Version 4 brings to all Melodyne editions the same state-of-the-art technology. More advanced audio-editing features would also be welcome. Notes, phrases, rhythms and noises in Melodyne become raw material that you can stretch, reshape, layer and transform — virtually at will.
Which gives you the freedom inter alia to record without a click, as Melodyne can generate both a click and a time grid later, synchronized to the changing tempo of the performance. Perfectly Integrated Whatever your system or workflow, Melodyne fits right in. As a plug-in, Melodyne can be effortlessly integrated into your projects. Plug-in convenience or standalone operation. In Melodyne, you work with notes — and not with a meaningless wave form. Audio events are represented by Blobs in the Editor see Fig. In fact, there are no longer any tools in the Arrangement window and fewer tools than before in the Editor window.
Editing Tempo Melodyne comes with powerful algorithms for the detection and editing of tempo. However, perhaps the most significant additional feature within the top-of-the-range 'Studio' edition of Melodyne is the ability to work with polyphonic files for example, a complete mix. You can also synchronize recordings with quite different tempos or variations in tempo. It incorporates amazing pitch and time stretching algorithms that are able to sonically adjust audio to extremes, without gaining distracting artifacts. The beauty of this type of control in Melodyne is that as you move, pitch and stretch the audio from the time you begin your project until the time you finish, you don't have to worry once about re-recording or mirror-editing your synth tracks; the conversion is always done in real time.
