Melodyne assistant from Celemony is pitch/time shifting software for use with monophonic material, and is the most affordable way to access the features of Melodyne. The software is perfect for correcting intonation and timing via a macro or by hand. Transpose, move or erase notes, alter their volume and formant spectra, or copy them to another location.

Melodyne assistant operates directly within your audio workstation. You hear all edits in the context of the other tracks in your project and you can use as many instances as you wish, limited only by your computer's CPU. The software functions cross platform under Mac OS X or Windows, and as a plug-in utilizing Audio Units, RTAS or VST formats. It can also function standalone for those occasions where booting a DAW is not required.

    Comments about Celemony Melodyne assistant - Monophonic Pitch Shifting/Time Stretching Software:

    I record a lot of voices and instruments, overdubbing a lot, and melodyne assistant is the easiest plug in I know of to adjust as necessary any of the elements that I record. I don't think there's anything in it (at least so far) that is not"so great" about it - I can enthusiastically recommend it to all.
