General | Latest Info

Powerful update to one of the world's best pitch and time correction software titles. Celemony's Melodyne is one of the most widely used pitch correction software in the world, and now it's getting even better. Melodyne has always excelled at editing pitch, timing and tempo of a wide range of Audio sources, and now with version 4, it does it better than ever. This is the most extensive update to the Melodyne family since its release. Highlights include the Sound Editor with its totally new sound design possibilities, DNA Direct Note Access-at last, on an unlimited number of tracks-and ultra-accurate tempo detection. Smaller Melodyne editions-Editor, assistant and Essential-have also been enhance. Melodyne 4 Essential contains Melodynes main Tool for basic editing of pitch and timing, thereby offering a particularly simple and economical entry into the world of Melodyne. And if you ever need more functions, you can always upgrade to one of the larger editions simply by paying difference in price. New soundscapes With Sound Editor With Sound Editor in Melodyne 4 Studio, you can edit the sound of your recordings-just like your music-In more musical, detailed and inspiring way. From subtle enhancement of envelopes and timbres to manipulation of overtones, re-synthesis and radical experiments in sound design. Melodyne recognizes notes and their overtones-also decisive advantage when it comes to sound processing. While conventional equalizers only act upon fixed frequencies, Melodyne adapts to the audio material itself. Adjust the level of individual overtones within each track, shape the basic sound of each instrument, relate the timbre or envelope of each Note to its pitch, bring out the character of each sound source. The results are novel acoustically, often unique, invariably invigorating-yet Sound Editor is intuitive and lends itself easily to creative use. Multitrack Note Editing With Melodyne 4 Studio, you can work on an unlimited number of tracks-even with DNA Direct Note Access For Polyphonic material. Multitrack Editing has one very important advantage: you can see and edit notes of as many tracks as you like simultaneously. The harmonies, melodies and rhythms of your project can all be viewed in context. And you can reach into this plastic image of music, select notes and modify them, regardless of which track they belong to. Track-transcending Macros in Melodyne 4 Studio, Macros are even more useful because they are not confined to a single track. Select notes from as many tracks as you like and correct their intonation or timing in one go. Furthermore, synchronizing tracks is particularly easy: just define one track as quantization master and sync all other tracks to it. New tempo intelligence Melodyne 4s new tempo algorithms detect tempos, time signatures and any changes in tempo more accurately than ever before. Melodyne 4 tracks precisely the tempo of live recording, with all its human inconstancy. Ensuing click keeps time with musicians, not the other way around.

Why Melodyne is better

Musical pitch has always been putty in the hands of Melodyne. Now, revolutionary features in version 4 promise to make Tempo and timbre equally fluid. Can you keep a secret? In the world of music technology, it is usually not all that difficult. Many of the non-disclosure agreements we sign are about things so dull that no-One would have bother to disclose them anyway. Just occasionally, however, product comes along that is genuinely revolutionary, and when Celemony first showed me the beta of Melodyne 4, it was immediately obvious that they had come up with something bit special. A couple of months downline, it was ready to be unleash on the world, and if anything, I was even more impressed. Without wishing to give too much away now, I think its fair to say that this is not your average software update.

Sound On Sound

The Sound Editor, however, works on the entire track and not on individual notes. The problem can therefore arise that settings that sound great with some words sound less good with eg sibilants or breaths. In this case, transfer all corresponding blobs from the lead vocal Track to the neighboring Track and apply different Sound Editor Settings there. The procedure looks like this: duplicate lead vocal Track in DAW. Melodyne instance of the new track would then initially receive exact copy of lead vocals. In Melodyne, switch Copy Track To Edit. Select all notes and delete them. Switch original Track To Edit, hold down the Cmd key and select all sibilants: in this overview of Track, you can see your selection: orange arrows mark selected sibilants. These are not only blobs with no pitch curve, however: blobs indicated by blue arrows, which are similarly bereft, are breaths, which should not be included in selection at this stage. Cut s blobs, using Cmd-X shortcut, switch to Copy Track and paste blobs with Cmd-V. If you now activate both tracks for editing, nothing will change visually. You will still see the entire vocal recording. By activating only one of two tracks, however, you can see either sibilants or the rest of the track. To transfer breath to the third track, repeat the same procedure. You now have all breaths on one track, all sibilants on the second, and everything else on the third. This allows you considerably greater flexibility in your use of the Sound Editor, as you can have separate Settings for each Track, making bold changes, say, to vowels and other consonants without having to worry about s blobs. And, naturally, separate tracks can be mixed separately in DAW. This opens the door to other possibilities, from perfect de-esser to way-out delay or reverb effects being applied only to pitched components or only to sibilants. You can even take matters further by assigning individual notes to which the singer perhaps pays insufficient attention to neighboring Track and adding a few overtones there to freshen them up. This can be outstandingly effective as a means of improving expression and attitude. Of course, you should postpone any scattering of blobs over multiple tracks until you have concluded your editing of intonation or timing. This is because blobs that move to the new track are automatically disconnected from those that remain. Once s and syllables before and after it in original recording are on separate tracks, for example, moving the former will no longer result in the latter being automatically resize.


First Among EQs

As far as capabilities of Melodynes Sound Editor go, though, these two sliders are tips of iceberg. To explore its novel's sound-shaping powers further, it is necessary to delve into one of the editing views. Of these, it perhaps the EQ Editor that is closest to any existing processor I am familiar with. At its heart is a graphic equaliser which operates in semitone bands, labelled according to notes of chromatic scale. The frequency spectrum of your track is displayed as a complex curve, and as you play it back, instantaneous energy within each band is shown by tiny balls that move rapidly up and down. Hover mouse pointer over the editing area, and just as with Tempo map, it becomes a context-sensitive smart tool, allowing you to make subtle or radical changes to the frequency spectrum of your sound. Clicking and dragging the above curve selects the number of bands for editing, whereupon you can apply the same flat or bell-curve cut / boost shape as in Tempo Editor. If you want to abandon your edits and return to the original curve, clicking on cog-wheel icon will bring up a local menu that includes this option along with some other, more creative choices. Global copy and paste options let you apply mean spectrum of one track to another, and it is also possible to copy spectrum of single Note or notes within Note Editor and paste this onto the entire track. The last two options let you clear the mean spectrum entirely, or randomise it, to predictably unpredictable effect. There are also four macro sliders below the EQ curve, which provide instantaneous ways of making particular kinds of edit. Brilliance control boosts or attenuates bands towards top of frequency spectrum, while Contour offers global control over unevenness of curve: move it to the left and frequency discrepancies are ironed out, while positive Contour values exaggerate hills and valleys within spectrum. Towards its leftmost extreme, it actually begins to invert the original spectrum, so that peaks become troughs and vice versa. There are other fine-band graphic equalisers that support this kind of editing and EQ matching, but what distinguishes Melodynes is that it is musically aware, feature exploited in Tonality slider. This attenuates or boosts individual semitone band according to whether that band's musical note is part of the detected scale. Pushing it rightwards emphasises in key bands, while going to the left brings up foreign frequencies. The final slider is Comb, which applies related but different concept, progressively attenuating frequencies depending on how far away their musical Note is from songs Tonic Note in circle of fifths.


How to integrate Melodyne

Let Melodyne 5 studio convince you: try it out for 30 days-free of charge and without obligation. You can test all its functions to your heart content and, without any limitations, save everything and make further use of it later-exactly as though you already purchased the application. During the trial period, you can even switch to smaller editions to compare their various function sets. This makes finding the right edition simple. Incidentally, Melodyne 5 trial version will still run on your computer, even if in the past you have used earlier trial version of Melodyne on it.


The working areas

The Sound Editor, evidently, breaks signal down into different frequencies that are modified and then combined to form a new signal. Signals thus combined include not only harmonic partials but also enharmonic partials and simple noise included in signal, such as squeaking of strings or pedals and background noise scatter throughout Spectrum and only rarely or accidentally coinciding with harmonic partials. Admittedly, bar in Harmonics, Lo and Hi working areas center on harmonic partials, but with Melodyne, unlike pure synthesizer that has only a finite number of sine wave oscillators at its disposal, signal components lying between partials are not lose but reproduce in signal, to remain faithful to the original. By moving Harmonics bars, you can alter sound radically, if you so desire, but the basis of your work is always material of your original recording. The case is different when you employ two Resynthesis sliders. With both sliders at their rightmost extremes, results sound particularly artificial and reminiscent of static synthesizer waveform. Aside from the fact that this may sometimes be precisely what you want, sound that results can also be an excellent starting point for further sound design using Harmonics bars, envelopes and so on.

Studio Magazin

To switch Melodyne to bypass or remove it from Audio Event, deactivate or delete Melodyne in Event FX Inspector of Audio Event. Of course, if you switch Melodyne to bypass, time-stretching will no longer be done by Melodyne but by Studio One. Compare switch: in addition to the bypass function of your DAW, which deactivates Melodyne altogether, you will find a next to level display in Melodyne Compare switch that serves a similar purpose. Unlike DAWas bypass function, however, Melodyneas Compare switch reverses not only acoustic but also visual consequences of all editing. It is also the case that; Compare switch affects all clips governed by Melodyne, regardless of Track and whether or not they are currently displayed in the Note Editor. The entire song is therefore return to the state it was in before you began editing notes With Melodyne. All changes made to notes are undone, whether made using macros or tools. Any adjustment of tempo of clips to match that of DAW will also be reverse.

Technical Grammy

Melodyne heightens its core competence. Melodic algorithms used for vocals can now distinguish unpitched, noise-like components of Note-i. E voiceless consonants and breath sounds-from its pitched components. Even when they coincide. And although all pitch and timing changes are implemented in tried-and-tested manner as far as pitched components are concern, different rules that emulate accurately natural behavior of human voice govern handling of sibilants. So now when you are working with Melodyne, you obtain the highest possible sound quality and the most natural-sounding results automatically. Pros will be relieved to discover it is no longer necessary to isolate each individual Sibilant by hand. That saves a lot of time and makes for more meaningful display in the Note Editor. At the same time, results sound far better, as automation works more precisely and overlaps between sibilants and Pitch components are taken into account. Sibilant detection not only yields acoustic advantages but also new creative possibilities: With Sibilant Tool, you can adjust the balance between sibilants and pitched components of Note. Sibilants can be attenuate, mute altogether, emphasize or even isolated-everything is possible. So, into bargain, you get a perfect de-esser that only affects problem areas and has no side-effects on other components of vocal sound.

How to integrate Melodyne

Melodyne operates as plug-in in your DAW. Or stand-alone. The most convenient way to integrate Melodyne into your DAW is via the ARA interface, which is supported by most DAW manufacturers. With ARA, you can open and edit tracks directly in Melodyne. In the absence of ARA, desired passage must first be transferred to Melodyne plug-in via one of the normal VST3, AU or AAX interfaces. This takes little time, though it is well worth the wait. In either case, Multitrack Note Editing of edition Melodyne studio offers you truly exceptional working experience: You see notes of as many tracks as you want in a single Melodyne window and can select and edit notes of multiple tracks simultaneously. With all Melodyne has to offer. Working with audio couldnt be more intuitive, musical or efficient.
