Celemony Melodyne Direct Note Access
Melodyne DNA is on the way! If you haven't a clue what we're talking about, you need to get up-to-date now: this is the biggest revolution in sound since the invention of the multi-track recorder.
Direct Note Access is a technology that makes the impossible possible: for the first time in audio recording history you can identify and edit individual notes within polyphonic audio material. The unique access that Melodyne affords to pitch, timing, note lengths and other parameters of melodic notes will now also be afforded to individual notes within chords.
See the video here but first, grab a chair and a glass of water because you're in for a shock. Everyone thought this would be impossible, well it looks like they've made it! This is like being able to remove layers of paint from a painting, and then being able to rearrange or repaint any part of it -- even when it's dried!
- Access individual notes in chords and polyphonic audio:
see them, grab them, edit them
- Audio, not MIDI!
while editing single chord notes is common for MIDI, it is a world premiere for audio recordings. Patent pending.
- Examples of use:
tune a guitar after recording, correct harmony vocals that are out of tune, or fix their timing, turn major chords to minor (and vice versa), switch tone scales, mute single notes, remix volume levels, etc. – all after the performance is already taped!
- All Melodyne tools available:
pitch shifting, time stretching, formants, amplitude – you name it ...
- Coming soon
available in Melodyne plugin, Version 2, first (scheduled for early 2009); will also be integrated in future updates of other Melodyne editions
Melodyne Direct Note Access was promised for round about now but, although it's up & running now, there are a few more things that need doing due to the impressive complexity of what it does. Launch is scheduled for the first quarter of 2009.
