Complete Polyphonic Pitch and Time Editing
Melodyne has been at the top of the pitch- and time-correction game for a long time. 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. Melodyne 5 studio brings even more cutting-edge enhancements, such as Melodic and Percussive Pitched algorithms, musically weighted pitch analysis, the Fade Tool and Sibilant Tool, the Leveling Macro, and recallable search. Add to that ARA compatibility, and you get one of the most comprehensive pitch- and time-correction applications on the planet.
Exciting new features for better results in less time
Melodyne 5 studio has a lot of changes under the hood. Its Melodic algorithm edits pitched and noise-like components separately, supplying you with ultra-musical pitch deviation analysis. Chord Track and Chord Grid enable you to adapt notes — or full chords — with blazing speed to suit a song. Create note-based fades — even in polyphonic recordings — with the Fade Tool. You can also use the Sibilant Tool for per-note adjustment of the volume between pitched and unpitched vocal sounds, and the Leveling Macro to minimize volume disparities between notes. There’s an additional Percussive Pitched algorithm, along with other algorithm improvements, plus recallable search functions for keyboard shortcuts. This is the best version of Melodyne yet!
The ideal tool for improving one — or multiple — tracks
Through its unique pitch-shifting and time-stretching capabilities, Melodyne 5 studio is a favourite tool around Sweetwater for improving your tracks. You can work with a single track, or thanks to Multitrack Note Editing, you can work with multiple tracks simultaneously. It’s a breeze to use. Simply take hold of a note, move it to the perfect pitch or position, optimize its length, or alter the intensity of its vibrato.
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 5 studio 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
There are several ways to integrate Melodyne 5 studio into your workflow. It works standalone or as a plug-in in your DAW. Using Melodyne as a plug-in works flawlessly; however, you must first transfer each musical passage into Melodyne before any pitch- or time-correction can occur. This takes time. For complete DAW integration, you’ll want to use Melodyne’s ARA interface. With it, you can open and edit tracks directly in Melodyne. Check with your DAW’s manufacturer to find out if it’s ARA-compatible or call your Sales Engineer. More DAWs are jumping on the ARA bandwagon every day!
