Celemony Melodyne3 overview

  • 1Description

Melodyne3 studio from Celemony is software that analyzes the pitch and time of monophonic, polyphonic and homophonic audio files and offers the opportunity to change whole melodies in a way previously only possible with MIDI data. The software is able to change the musical parameters of voices or instruments without any degrading the quality of the recording.

Melodyne3 studio is no longer limited to melodies but offers an algorithm that can perform high quality time stretching on full chords and complex audio signals; so now harmonic material (such as rhythm guitar or piano parts) - whether homophonic or polyphonic - can be transposed without altering the tempo, slowed down or sped up without altering the pitch and even quantized. All in real-time.

The software allows for viewing and editing not just one but as many tracks as the computer system will allow. Multi-voice arrangements can be created with extraordinary ease from a source track with only one voice, while taking advantage of outputting each individual voice via a separate channel in the mixer. Tracks can be quantized using other tracks for reference and pitches can be copied from one audio track to another.

Context-sensitive combination-tools, logically arranged menus and intuitive methods of operating in the Arrange and Edit windows, streamline the workflow as well as reducing the time taken to master the program. Melodyne studio provides the choice of either creating the entire audio arrangement in Melodyne, or uniting the program seamlessly via ReWire or the Melodyne Bridge plug-in with a preferred audio workstation. The software works with no limitation on the number of tracks available (hardware dependent) with up to 192kHz and 24/32-bit resolution.

Note: This pricing is for registered users of Melodyne essential who wish to upgrade to Melodyne studio

At a Glance

Basic Features
  • Multi-track audio editing software with Melodyne technology
  • Works in stand-alone mode or can be linked via Melodyne Bridge (VST, AU, RTAS) or ReWire to compatible DAWs under Mac OS X and Windows
  • Audio-to-MIDI converts monophonic audio material accurately into MIDI for the real-time control of synthesizers
  • Integrated mixing console with hosting capability for effects and instruments (for the audio-to-MIDI function)
  • Activation available on up to 2 computers or via iLok license
  • User interface and manual in English, German, French, Spanish and Japanese
  • Arranging and editing of an unlimited number of tracks
  • Manual or automatic correction of intonation and timing errors
  • Refashioning of melodies, harmonies, timing and rhythm
  • Transposition, including adjustment to scale
  • Modifying various note parameters such as volume, vibrato and formant spectrum
  • Pitch shifting and time stretching
  • (Re-)quantization
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 pitch drift
    3. Modifying the pitch modulation
    4. Modifying the position
    5. Modifying the length
    6. Modifying the volume
    7. Shifting the formant spectrum
    8. Modifying the pitch of any transition between notes
    9. Modifying the volume of any transition between notes
    10. Shifting the formant spectrum of any transition between notes
    11. Timing (re-)quantization, manually or via macro
    12. Pitch quantization, manually or via macro
    13. Transferring melodies from track to track without changing the instrument sound of the destination track
    14. 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. Modifying the time path within the blob
    5. Modifying the volume
    6. Shifting the formant spectrum
    7. Modifying the volume transition between blobs
    8. Shifting the formant spectrum of transitions between blobs
    9. Timing quantization, manually or via macro
    10. Cut, copy and paste

Application Details

Time Stretching and Pitch Shifting
  • Whether the material contains block chords (homophony) or parts that are melodically and rhythmically independent (polyphony,) the software is able to apply pitch shifting, time stretching and quantization to it in real time, while still retaining the original quality of the audio
  • Note-based rearrangement and remixing of songs offer producers new creative options
Note Recognition and Correction
  • The analysis of source material automatically takes into account the type of audio material, obviating the need for further programming
  • For batch processing a set of files of the same type, the user can also create and store their own recognition templates
  • Macros perform swift correction of notes that are out of tune or mistimed as well as providing for creative requantization
Perfect Timing
  • Perfect timing is possible using a macro, allowing the user to progressively iron out timing irregularities or impose the rhythm of one track upon another
  • The software moves the notes intelligently, even adjusting their length, guaranteeing unprecedented musical results
  • Notes can be moved forwards or backwards in time manually until the timing is exactly as required
From Melody to Rhythm
  • Edit very effectively not only vocals and melodic instruments but also rhythmic material
  • From a short, stiff drum loop, for example, a vibrant rhythm track can be created in next to no time by cutting, copying and pasting beats
  • The software's parameters allow for creating either subtle effect or extreme tonal variations, and anything in between
Global Intervention
  • Stretch or transpose entire songs without compromising their sound quality
  • Select parts of songs or individual beats, and transpose, move or copy them in their entirety to some other location
  • Because Melodyne recognizes and separates the beats in audio material, all such procedures can be accomplished effortlessly and without little clicks or other blemishes being introduced along the way
Virtual Ensembles
  • Implement a doubling or create a second voice with a few mouse clicks
  • Thanks to the formant parameter, the transposed voices sound exactly like the original, unless, of course, a different character is required - ideal for creating a natural sounding choir from a single voice
  • Or a brass ensemble from a trumpet part, or a string quartet from a violin
Sound Design
  • The unique possibilities of Melodyne studio can be used not only for unobtrusive correction but also for drastic alteration and extraordinary effects
  • With formant shifting, the sound of individual notes or entire samples can be subtly or else drastically colored
  • Sounds can be time-stretch to such an extent that their tonal development is literally audible in slow motion
  • Even with such extreme applications, the starting transients of the notes remain crisp and the sound soft and round
  • Since it's possible to alter at will the tempo, timing and melody of sampled licks and phrases, suitable samples will always be at hand for any productions
Arrangement Editing
  • Global tempo parameters in the Transport pane
  • Intuitive tempo control using the "Auto-stretch" function
  • Context-sensitive "Move Notes" feature
  • Tempo/Time signature changes can be typed in quickly in the Bar/Time ruler
  • User can copy, for example, only the pitches from one track to another, so that a percussion track follows the notes of a vocal part
  • The detected notes - including precise data regarding their dynamics and pitch - can be output via MIDI and used to control a synthesizer or a sampler
  • Provides endless and fascinating new possibilities for doubling, arranging and sound design
Layout and Workflow
  • Navigation and zoom shortcuts in the Arranger and Editor
  • Grid size for editing can be set quickly in the Bar/Time ruler
  • Easy scrubbing with the Bar ruler in the Arranger and Ed
  • Track name boxes can be widened to make them more legible
  • Audio-to-MIDI and Play Algorithm parameters are in clearly laid out inspectors and always visible (if desired)
