Melodyne essential 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 and copy individual notes or entire passages to different locations.

The software 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.

Basic Features
  • Single-track audio editing software with Melodyne technology
  • Suitable for monophonic and rhythmic/complex audio material
  • Works as a plug-in (VST, Audio Units, RTAS) in compatible DAWs under Mac OS X and Windows
  • supports 32-bit and 64-bit operating systems
  • Can also be used in standalone mode
  • Activation available on up to 2 computers
  • User interface and manual in English, German, French, Spanish and Japanese
  • Manual or automatic correction of intonation and timing errors

Monophonic Material
  • In the case of monophonic audio material (solo voice, saxophone, bass guitar, etc.) the following edits are possible:
    1. Modifying the pitch
    2. Modifying the position of notes
    3. Modifying the length of notes
    4. Timing (re-)quantization via macro
    5. Pitch quantization via macro
    6. Cut, copy and paste
Rhythmic and Complex Material
  • In the case of rhythmic and complex material, separation is according to beats, so if several notes (for example click and snare) sound on the same beat, they are available for editing in the shape of a single Melodyne "blob"
  • For such "blobs", the following editing possibilities exist:
    1. Modifying the pitch (relative)
    2. Modifying the position
    3. Modifying the length
    4. Timing quantization via macro
    5. Cut, copy and paste

Older PT versions:
You can use Melodyne on older Pro Tools versions (7.4 or higher) running on an OS, that matches the AVID requirements of your specific PT version. It's understood that the performance on such an older configuration is often less powerful than on a newer version. In this respect Melodyne and other plug-ins benefit from newer PT versions.
