New in Melodyne 5

New technologies, for better results in less time. Thanks to the fundamentally improved “Melodic” algorithm, Melodyne makes your vocal editing even better than before. With perfect, natural corrections at the press of a key. Thanks to the Chord Track, you can adapt notes with lightning speed to suit the song – chord recognition included. And with the unique Fade Tool, you can create note-based fades – even in polyphonic recordings and samples.

 

All this is new:

 

the ability to edit pitched and noise-like components separately with the “Melodic” algorithm

a more musical analysis of pitch deviations

the Chord Track and Chord Grid for pitch editing, chord recognition

the Fade Tool and Leveling Macro for editing dynamics

an additional algorithm (“Percussive Pitched”) plus other algorithm improvements

search functions for keyboard shortcuts, saving of shortcut sets

The update costs 49 €/US$ for Melodyne assistant, 99 €/US$ for Melodyne editor and 149 €/US$ for Melodyne studio. For Melodyne essential and users who registered Melodyne after 1 March 2020, it is free of charge.

Vocals, now even better

Melodyne heightens its core competence. The “Melodic” algorithm used for vocals can now distinguish the unpitched, noise-like components of a note – i.e. voiceless consonants (such as sibilants like “s”) and breath sounds – from its pitched components. Even when they coincide. And although all pitch and timing changes are implemented in the tried-and-tested manner as far as the pitched components are concerned, different rules that emulate accurately the natural behavior of the human voice govern the handling of sibilants. So now when you are working with Melodyne, you obtain the highest possible sound quality and most natural-sounding results automatically.

 

Pros will be relieved to discover it’s no longer necessary to isolate each individual sibilant by hand. That saves a lot of time and makes for a more meaningful display in the Note Editor. At the same time, the results sound far better, as automation works more precisely and overlaps between sibilants and pitched components are taken into account.

 

Sibilant detection not only yields acoustic advantages but also new creative possibilities: With the Sibilant Tool, you can adjust the balance between the sibilants and the pitched components of a note. Sibilants can be attenuated, muted altogether, emphasized or even isolated – everything is possible. So, into the bargain, you get a perfect de-esser that only affects the problem areas and has no side-effects on other components of the vocal sound.

Modeled on human hearing

Why do some notes sound out of tune and not others? Fluctuations in pitch contribute to the quality of a vocal performance, because it is through them that passion and emotional complexity find expression. They give it, in other words, its human dimension. But for their contribution to be a positive one, the nature, scope and precise timing of such fluctuations is of crucial importance.

 

A note doesn’t necessarily sound sharp or flat just because it isn’t “spot on” mathematically. Just particular, often very brief segments of the note annoy us. Sometimes at the beginning, sometimes at the end, sometimes somewhere in between. It is these crucial segments that have to be perfectly in tune; if they are, the note will sound right to us. The presence of any fluctuations before or after to such segments doesn’t trouble us – to the contrary, we feel they add life to the performance and sound natural.

 

Melodyne now identifies these problem areas precisely, and the offset shown in the Note Inspector is calculated from the pitch of each note at the crucial moment only – not its entire lifetime. As a result, double-clicking (to set a note’s offset to zero) now yields precisely the right musical result. Also the macro profits from this new, even more musical approach: Each individual note is pitched to perfection. Yet everything still sounds natural and alive.

The Chord Track and Chord Grid

Work better with chords, adapt notes quickly. Melodyne 5 offers you a chord track that is linked to the Pitch Grid in the Note Editor. This makes working with chords far more enjoyable and harmonies more transparent. Because you can see at any time which pitches are compatible with the current chord and can adapt the notes accordingly with lightning speed. This is helpful when you’re altering chords, and if you want to match any sample harmonically to your music, it works like a dream.

 

Autopilot for chords. Melodyne’s chord recognition technology is so advanced, it can consider tracks apart or together – even the entire mix – and identify the chords formed when their notes are combined. It analyses your recordings fast and reliably and fills in the Chord Track automatically. This makes working with chords even easier.

Dynamics functions

Note-based fades. The Fade Tool gives you highly effective control over the dynamics of your recording. For each note individually. Even within a chord. This is unique and offers totally new creative possibilities for dynamic editing. And since in Melodyne the fades belong to the notes, they are automatically preserved when the notes are moved or copied.

 

Controlling the dynamic range. The Leveling Macro makes loud notes quieter and quiet ones louder, it adjusts volume disparities. Even – thanks to Melodyne technology – in polyphonic recordings. So if one or more notes in a chord are too quiet and being drowned out by the rest, you can raise them effortlessly to the desired level.

Further algorithm improvements

“Percussive Pitched”. This new algorithm was developed especially for instruments like tabla, berimbau or 808-kick, the notes of which – though percussive in character – still have a recognizable pitch.

 

“Robust Pitch Curve”. With this new option, you can obtain better sound quality when editing certain signals, such as those with a great deal of reverberation. When it is activated, the monophonic algorithms employ a pitch curve that has been slightly smoothed out.

 

“Complex”. This algorithm playback type has been improved and can now be used just as flexibly as the playback type “Tonal” concerning the formants.

Other improvements

Better keyboard shortcuts. New search function for keyboard shortcuts, the saving of personalized shortcut sets has been improved.

 

No more “.mdd” files. Melodyne’s detection data, which was previously saved to separate “.mdd” files, is now stored in the audio files themselves, making file directories clearer and the sharing of projects easier.
