The new version offers unique possibilities for working with different scales and temperaments, more powerful timing tools, Rewire integration, and numerous other improvements. As a result, Melodyne is even more musical, allows you to go even deeper when editing your material, and is even more widely compatible than ever before.
True Scale & Tuning
The new True Scale & Tuning functions offer those who produce Arab, Indian or contemporary and microtonal music the ideal function set for editing their work with Melodyne. True Scale & Tuning also has the power to enhance conventional music production, by making it easy for users to explore the emotional and atmospheric subtleties of different scales and temperaments and integrate them into their own music. Countless different scales and temperaments can be loaded, edited in detail, and even created from scratch. The highlight is the Scale Detective, which is capable of analyzing any sample or piece of music and allows even users with no detailed knowledge to transfer the scale and tuning of one recording to another.
Extended timing tools
The new Attack Speed tool allows the user to edit the starting transients, that are so determinative of the sound – even for each note separately. An important new design implement, not only for percussive sounds. In addition, with the new Time Handles, even time progressions within individual notes can be reshaped. Among other things, this makes even more detailed editing of vocals possible.
Rewire and more
