Celemony Melodyne Editor : MGR/Czar's user review

"Celemony Melodyne Editor" 10 (10/10)

Overall Opinion 10/10

melodyne editor is the vocal tuning software from Celemony. It has a new technology Celemony calls DNA (direct note access) which allows you seperate notes in a polyphonic recording.

I purchased Melodyne from sweetwater before editor was released giving me a free upgrade to editor when it was released.

I love the ease of use of melodyne editor. The UI is clean not cluttered. Vocals tuned with melodyne sound natural. Also comes with a stand alone program so you don't have to tune in your DAW.

While tuning parts of a vocal sound natural I find tuning a whole verse or song at once will not give you the best results. One click tune your whole song method is not the best way to go, but if you tune phrase by phrase you should be pleased

stability has been good so far. This plug in has not crashed any of my DAW's. Importing large audio to it can take a while, but not a negative to me.

I highly recommend Melodyne editor to anyone wanted to tune vocals or instruments. Its easy to use and sounds good. I know auto tune has held the crown in this area for the past years but the UI of melodyne alone sold me before I even saw what it could do. The UI lets you edit notes and phrases just like you would audio regions in your DAW. Melodyne editor is the middle version Celemony offers and is $299. I uploaded a video on youtube about Melodyne editor and a quick look at how it works. Just search Czarthp for my youtube page if you want to view it.
