Celemony Melodyne editor overview

  • 1Description

Melodyne editor 2.0 from Celemony is pitch/time shift software that offers the revolutionary Direct Note Access (DNA) technology. The technology makes access to individual notes in polyphonic audio material possible, allowing for instance, the ability to correct wrong notes in a piano recording, change the chords in a guitar accompaniment after the recording is over, or refashion a sample lick.

Editing audio material with the software is intuitive and flexible. Simply move an audio note to a different pitch or a different position. Make notes longer or shorter, louder or softer. Delete notes from chords or add new ones by copying, transposing or quantizing your material, and create from it melodic, harmonic and rhythmic variations. Use a multitude of scales, create custom scales, or extract scales from audio recordings. Control the timing in detail and even the time course within notes.

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.

Monophonic and Polyphonic Material
In the case of monophonic audio material (solo voice, saxophone, bass guitar, etc.), and polyphonic audio material (piano, guitar, etc.), the following edits are possible:

  • Modifying the pitch
  • Modifying the pitch drift
  • Modifying the pitch modulation
  • Modifying the position
  • Modifying the length
  • Modifying the attack speed
  • Modifying the time course within notes
  • Modifying the volume
  • Shifting the formant spectrum
  • Modifying the pitch of any transition between notes
  • Modifying the volume of any transition between notes
  • Shifting the formant spectrum of any transition between notes
  • Timing (re-)quantization, manually or via macro
  • Pitch quantization, manually or via macro
  • Cut, copy and paste

In the case of polyphonic material, if two or more instruments play the same note on the same beat, only one note is available for editing, with no separation of the instruments available
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:

  • Modifying the pitch (relative)
  • Modifying the position
  • Modifying the length
  • Modifying the volume
  • Modifying the attack speed
  • Modifying the time course within notes
  • Shifting the formant spectrum
  • Modifying the volume transition between blobs
  • Shifting the formant spectrum of transitions between blobs
  • Timing quantization, manually or via macro
  • Cut, copy and paste

Application Details

First Take - Final Take
  • The inspired first take can, with the application of Melodyne editor, be the final one, even if it wasn't error free
  • Simply reach into the recording and move wrong notes to the correct place or erase them
  • You can even correct intonation or timing errors automatically by macro if you wish, even if the material is polyphonic
Perfect Vocals
  • Melodyne has already proved itself in the field of correction and optimization of vocal recordings. With Direct Note Access, Melodyne editor offers still greater mastery of this art
  • Intonation and timing problems, unsteady volume, exaggerated or weak vibrato-all that can be corrected with a few mouse clicks
  • The sound quality of Melodyne has not only been retained, but has been improved upon
Perfect Timing
  • With Melodyne editor, it's simple to get spot-on timing
  • You can adjust effortlessly and continuously the extent to which a performance deviates from metronomic precision, and even give recordings a totally different rhythm
  • When quantizing, the software not only moves individual notes but also adjusts their length, even when the material is polyphonic, guarantying results of unprecedented musicality
Harmonies and Tunings à La Carte
  • Remove notes from chords to thin out over-dense accompaniments
  • Copy and move notes to implement doubling, create second voices, or construct chords where none were there before
  • Extract the scale of a recording using the Scale Detective to change the scale of another recording
Sound Library Reloaded
  • Your sound library can now be changed, expanded and can become virtually infinite in scope
  • Since you are able to alter at will the tempo, timing, melody and harmonies of your sampled licks and phrases, adding or deleting notes as you please, you'll always have perfect samples on hand for the production you're working on
  • And you can make as many variations as you wish
Sound Design
  • Access to the individual notes offers totally new freedom in sound design
  • You can, for example, alter the volume or formant spectrum of individual notes in order to give chords a different coloration and character
  • By copying and pasting, you can even swap sounds - replacing the piano sounds of a chord with marimba sounds, even if they were taken from a totally different chord
No Detours
  • The software operates directly within your audio workstation - you hear all edits in the context of the other tracks of the project and can use as many instances as your computer will allow
  • For swift editing of a sample, you can open Melodyne editor in stand-alone mode without having to start up your audio workstation first
