Melodyne studio has been the mainstay of professional pitch and time correction for several years. Celemony first impressed the audio industry by discarding the stiff controls of other pitch correction programs and giving us time and pitch correction in a familiar piano roll format. Next, they refined their already powerful pitch correction engine to accommodate polyphonic audio, giving us dramatic time and tonal correction for rhythmical and polyphonic audio. And Melodyne studio's Direct Note Access (DNA) technology even lets you individually edit the notes within polyphonic audio. For comprehensive pitch and time correction, you'll be well served with Celemony Melodyne 4 studio.

The ideal tool for improving individual tracks

Through its unique pitch-shifting and time-stretching capabilities, Melodyne is a favorite tool around Sweetwater for improving individual tracks. Simply take hold of a note, move it to the perfect pitch or position, optimize its length, or alter the intensity of its vibrato. Such corrections are absolutely unnoticeable; the musical message is preserved, because Melodyne 4 adapts the note transitions and phrasing intelligently. So there are neither jumps nor the notorious Cher effect unless you want it!

Harmonies and double tracking are a few mouse clicks away

With a few mouse clicks, you can thicken your singing through doublings or allow a second voice to run with it at the octave. Melodyne can also provide slight random variations of pitch and timing so that it sounds natural. Harmonies are also incredibly easy to create, and since you can affect the formant of each voice separately without affecting the pitch, you can even use a single take of a single voice and create convincing virtual backup singers from it.

From subtle corrections to outrageous effects

With Melodyne's outstanding time stretching and pitch shifting, you can vary and correct your audio material unobtrusively with the very best sound quality - but you can also use these possibilities for extraordinary transformations and effects. You can, for example, stretch a note to such an extent that a short sound is transformed into a fascinating, minute-long sound continuum. Even with such extreme stretching, the starting transients are preserved and the sound remains soft and round.

Intelligent MIDI implementation

Melodyne can reproduce the melodies it detects via MIDI - retained at the same time, pitch, dynamics, tempo, and phrasing. Software instruments can be hosted directly in Melodyne and controlled using the Audio-to-MIDI function by Melodyne's audio tracks. The small u-he synthesizer Podolski is installed at the same time, so you can start immediately. You can also export the data generated with audio-to-MIDI as a MIDI file and edit it further in your sequencer; this opens many possibilities for creative arranging and sound design. Breathe new life into your synthesizers! In the other direction, almost all Melodyne parameters can be controlled remotely via MIDI and automated. You can use any MIDI controller you like for this; for particularly popular models, Melodyne comes with ready-made adaptations.

Celemony Melodyne 4 studio Features:
  • Pitch shift/time stretch software with complete polyphonic tuning via DNA (Direct Note Access)
  • Correct Pitch and Quantize Time macros allow common flaws to be removed with a few mouse clicks
  • Easy to operate and attuned to the working practices of musicians and recording engineers

A Great Upgrade!

Great update, Melodyne 4 is not only a functioning tuning program but it really shines as a creative tool. It can do so many things you just have to spend time in it to find new uses!

My Most Valuable Software

I use Melodyne with Cakewalk Sonar professional and use it both integrated as a Region FX and stand alone on a decent spec desktop with Pentium i5 3.5ghz processor overclocked to 4.4ghz and 16mb RAM. Melodyne Editor 2 was good but I find that I can work better with Studio 4. Like most users I guess, I use it to correct sharp, flat or drifting notes, mainly in vocal tracks but I also find that being able to see several tracks in the Melodyne window is a great help where several instrument or vocal tracks need to sync. Also great, but time consuming, for harmonies. The biggest challenge I gave the software was to change the tempo of a whole project - that was a steep learning curve (for me anyway!) and was only partially successful. I do get crashes from time to time, mostly when there are a lot of FX regions within a project and I'm trying to create another. This is probably due to a combination of plugins and I seem to be able to get around the problem by bypassing all plugins. It is worth emphasizing that this is just my personal experience and the advantages far outweigh the occasional pc crash. (Most DAWs produce similar glitches from time to time.)I have no idea if there is a rival product out there but it would have to be damned good to beat Melodyne?!

Better than I imagined

I'm getting into it and haven't explored everything it can do. The new multitrack functionality is fantastic. Anything I can think of, this can do. Editor was great, Studio knocks it out of the park. I am working on projects begun in analog that I never thought I could fix. Watch the videos — It's easier than you think.

Almost perfect

I don't know how much more you could ask from a piece of software. The new features are absolutely amazing. It has greatly simplified alignment of harmonies and being able to modify the tempo of multiple tracks with a few clicks... WOW. Timing adjustment isn't perfect, but it's very, very good.I HIGHLY recommend this for all studios that deal with off-pitch singers and out-of-time artists.

Melodyne 4 Studio

Although I only used it for a short while before my computer crashed, the experience was really great. As soon as I get my gear back up I will be able to really get into using Melodyne 4 studio. I am looking forward to doing it.
