Celemony Software has announced that Melodyne editor v1.1 is now available. This free update improves the sound quality, performance and reliability of the software, optimizes numerous functions, and fixes a number of bugs. At the same time as the Melodyne editor update, updates will be appearing for Melodyne assistant and Melodyne essential RTAS.
Optimizations to the substructure of the new versions reduce their RAM requirements and allow smoother and more reliable performance, whilst the user interface has been fine-tuned to make working with the software still more enjoyable. Clear improvements have been made above all to the processing of monophonic material. Thanks to the enhanced sound quality, Melodyne editor, Melodyne assistant and Melodyne essential RTAS in their versions 1.1 offer far and away the best-sounding vocal editing of all Melodyne editions and generations.
That is confirmed by Andrew Scheps, Engineer/Mixer with e.g. Metallica, the Red Hot Chili Peppers and Johnny Cash. He is also a member of the Celemony beta team. "I've been using the beta of Melodyne editor all day and it's been working and sounding great. I didn't realize that sound quality with monophonic material could still be improved that much by an update. Until now I thought a certain change of timbre was just part of the process. But the new version sounds amazing."
Users of the now-discontinued Melodyne plugin will discover that the import function in Melodyne editor has been improved and now delivers more accurate results. When upgrading, the import function now provides for the flawless migration of Melodyne plugin projects to Melodyne editor. This allows users to benefit not only from the new DNA technology but also from enhanced sound quality when completing existing projects.
The updates to version 1.1 of Melodyne editor, Melodyne assistant and Melodyne essential RTAS will be available from the Celemony web site. Registered users of version 1.0 will be able to download them free of charge. Users will be informed of the update by e-mail.
