Celemony Melodyne Editor 2
Celemony presents Version 2 of Melodyne editor at the AES in New York. The new version offers possibilities for working with different scales and temperaments, timing tools, Rewire integration, and other changes.
Here is what Celemony had to say: "Not all music is played on white and black keys, true intonation is complex. Other cultures have musical traditions in which Mozart and Beethoven do not loom large, and absolute flexibility is also needed in experimental music."
The new True Scale & Tuning functions offer those who produce Arab, Indian or contemporary and microtonal music a suited function set for editing their work with Melodyne. True Scale & Tuning is also designed to let you enhance conventional music production, by letting you explore the emotional and atmospheric subtleties of different scales and temperaments and integrate them into their own music. Various different scales and temperaments can be loaded, edited in detail, or created from scratch. The highlight is the Scale Detective, which is capable of analyzing any sample or piece of music and allows even users with no detailed knowledge to transfer the scale and tuning of one recording to another.
The new Attack Speed tool allows you to edit the starting transients – including for each note separately (a new design implement, not only for percussive sounds). In addition, with the new Time Handles, even time progressions within individual notes can be reshaped. Among other things, this is designed to make more detailed editing of vocals possible.
Melodyne is intended to be of use to as many producers as possible – regardless which DAW they use. For this reason, Melodyne Editor 2 now also supports Rewire. This means it can operate now even with DAWs that lack plug-in interfaces or were previously incompatible with Melodyne, the company says.
The update to Version 2 brings other minor improvements and workflow optimizations that along with Rewire integration are also included in the free updates to Version 2 of Melodyne assistant and essential.
