Melodyne editor is the first Celemony product to offer the Direct Note Access (DNA) technology. This makes possible what had previously been considered impossible: access to individual notes in polyphonic audio material. Melodyne editor is an ideal choice for the optimization of lead vocals, too. Under Mac OS and Windows, as a plug-in and stand-alone application.


  • Single-track audio editing environment with Melodyne technology.
  • Suitable for monophonic, polyphonic and rhythmic/complex audio material.
  • Offers with DNA direct access to individual notes within chords.
  • Works as a plug-in (VST, AU, RTAS, AAX) in compatible DAWs under Mac OS X and Windows.
  • Supports 32-bit and 64-bit.
  • Can also be used in stand-alone mode.
  • Activation on up to two computers or via iLok.
  • User interface and manual in English, German, French, Spanish and Japanese.


  • Manual or automatic correction of intonation and timing errors.
  • Refashioning of melodies, harmonies, timing and rhythm.
  • Transposition including adjustment to scale.
  • Modifying various note parameters such as volume, vibrato, formant spectrum.
  • Pitch shifting and time stretching.
  • (re-)quantization.
  • MIDI file export.

Editing Possibilities for Monophonic and Polyphonic Material
In the case of monophonic (solo voice, saxophone, bass guitar, etc.) and polyphonic (piano, guitar, etc.) audio material, the following possibilities exist for editing notes:

  • Modifying the pitch.
  • Modifying the pitch drift.
  • Modifying the pitch modulation.
  • Modifying the position.
  • Modifying the length.
  • Modifying the volume.
  • Shifting the formant spectrum.
  • Modifying the pitch of any transition between notes.
  • Modifying the volume of any transition between notes.
  • Shifting the formant spectrum of any transition between notes.
  • Timing (re-)quantization, manually or via macro.
  • Pitch quantization, manually or via macro.
  • Cut, copy and paste.

If, in the case of polyphonic material, two or more instruments play a note of the same pitch on the same beat, one note only, representing the combined sound of the instruments in question, is available for editing (no separation of instruments).

Editing Possibilities for Rhythmic and Complex Material
In the case of rhythmic and complex material, separation is according to beats, so if several notes (e.g. click and snare) sound on the same beat, they are available for editing in the shape of a Melodyne blob. For such blobs, the following editing possibilities exist:

  • Modifying the pitch (relative).
  • Modifying the position.
  • Modifying the length.
  • Modifying the volume.
  • Shifting the formant spectrum.
  • Modifying the volume transition between blobs.
  • Shifting the formant spectrum of transitions between blobs.
  • Timing quantization, manually or via macro.
  • Cut, copy and paste.

How does Melodyne compare with FL Studio's NewTone?

15 January 2015 at 9:43am

Melodyne offers many more features like i.e. DNA (direct note access) into polyphone material and is available as a plugin for industry leading DAW / studio software platforms. NewTone just allows to manipulate monophone material (like vocals or single monophone instruments).

Melodyne work's on an very own patented mathematical algorithm which is'nt available over other products / solutions and offers the naturalst results in the market. Afaik it IS till the market leader in this segment. For monophone material AutoTune from antares is the most known "auto tune" and pitch correction / manipulation tool by history, but there exist many other products today offer pitch and time correction facilities in any way and in (very) different qualities but afaik melodyne is still the indutry standard on a profesional level.

Thanks for the informative summary, syndicat.

Yes, i've heard its polyphonous manipulation, in a demonstration video of the full featured Melodyne. Jaw-droppingly impressive! i have Melodyne Essentials and it has a very natural sound.
