Celemony has released Melodyne plugin which offers Melodyne's unique functions for the editing of pitch and timing for the first time as a plug-in directly integrated into VST-, AU- and RTAS-hosts under Windows XP and Mac OS X.
The main application area of Melodyne plugin is the intuitive correction of the pitch and timing of notes in vocal recordings. With Melodyne plugin you can also, however, edit and optimize single-voice instrument recordings as well as drum and percussion tracks in a flexible manner.
Once the passage you wish to work on has been transferred from the host track, Melodyne plugin offers you context-sensitive tools for editing manually the pitch, vibrato, drift, timing, volume and formants of individual notes as well as the swift editing of any selection of notes with macros for the automatic correction of intonation and timing. A multi-level Undo function provides for carefree editing, and a selectable scale grid for harmonically correct transposition. For Pitch, Formants and Volume, rotary controls are provided that permit the real-time manipulation of these parameters and can be automated from the host.
Melodyne plugin will be available worldwide from the beginning of December onwards from music dealers as well as the Celemony Web Shop. The price is €/$299. For users of Auto-tune, PitchDoctor, Pitch'n'Time and Waves Tune Celemony are offering a Competitive Upgrade Option (offer valid until the 28th February 2007) for €/$199.
Registered users of Melodyne essential, Melodyne uno and Melodyne cre8 are entitled to a Loyalty Offer price of $/€149 until February 28th, 2007. From March 1st, 2007, the Loyalty Offer will be €/$199. Registered users of Melodyne studio 3 can obtain the plug-in free of charge.
