Melodyne lets you work with audio in an entirely new way. One that is musical, nifty, crystal-clear and almost magical. Working with Melodyne is like being able to say to a singer “hold this note a bit longer” or to a pianist “give slightly less weight to the third in this chord” – hours, weeks, even years after the recording session.
The fantastic editing possibilities, the outstanding sound quality and the intuitive and musical operation make Melodyne an incomparable tool without which it would be hard to imagine modern music production.
With Version 4, the entire Melodyne family – with the emphasis on Melodyne 4 studio – is experiencing the most extensive update in the company’s history.
Highlights include the Sound Editor with its totally new sound design possibilities, DNA Direct Note Access™ on an unlimited number of tracks, the cross-track editing of notes and ultra-accurate new tempo detection. Furthermore, Melodyne 4 studio now also runs directly as a plug-in within your DAW – also, naturally, in 64-bit resolution. The smaller Melodyne editions – editor, assistant and essential – have also been enhanced.
All users who registered their Melodyne after Nov 1, 2015, get the update to Version 4 free of charge.
