Melodyne 2.6 offers far more powerful functions for the handling of keys and scales as well as the editing of diatonic and chromatic notes - with far more musical results from both correction and transposition operations. Version 2.6 distinguishes between notes belonging to the current key or mode and notes foreign to it (such as chromatic passing notes) so that the musical content of the phrase is not altered when the melody is transposed or the mode changed. This also helps the program to achieve still better results when generating two- or three-part vocal harmonies.
The handling of trills and other ornaments has also been optimized and the ability to group notes added to the function set. These measures make the editing of phrases considerably more intuitive.
The Melodyne Bridge, which facilitates the integration of Melodyne into sequencing applications, now supports the current versions of Apple Logic 7 and MotU Digital Performer 4.5.
The program's ability to analyze and play back rough-sounding audio material has also been improved considerably. The new update also contains a host of detailed enhancements - a complete list of changes can be found here.
