Product Description for the Celemony Melodyne Assistant to Studio 4 Upgrade
the most extensive update in the company’s history
With the Sound Editor in Melodyne 4 studio, you can edit the sound of your recordings – just like your music – in a more musical, detailed and inspiring way. From the subtle enhancement of envelopes and timbres to the manipulation of overtones, resynthesis and radical experiments in sound design.
Harmonies and double tracking are a few mouse clicks away
With a few mouse clicks, you can thicken your singing through doublings or allow a second voice to run with it at the octave. Melodyne can also provide slight random variations of pitch and timing so that it sounds natural. Harmonies are also incredibly easy to create, and since you can affect the formant of each voice separately without affecting the pitch, you can even use a single take of a single voice and create convincing virtual backup singers from it.
From subtle corrections to outrageous effects
With Melodyne's outstanding time stretching and pitch shifting, you can vary and correct your audio material unobtrusively with the very best sound quality - but you can also use these possibilities for extraordinary transformations and effects. You can, for example, stretch a note to such an extent that a short sound is transformed into a fascinating, minute-long sound continuum. Even with such extreme stretching, the starting transients are preserved and the sound remains soft and round.
Intelligent MIDI implementation
Melodyne can reproduce the melodies it detects via MIDI - retained at athe same time, pitch, dynamics, tempo, and phrasing. Software instruments can be hosted directly in Melodyne and controlled using the Audio-to-MIDI function by Melodyne's audio tracks. The small u-he synthesizer Podolski is installed at the same time, so you can start immediately. You can also export the data generated with audio-to-MIDI as a MIDI file and edit it further in your sequencer; this opens many possibilities for creative arranging and sound design. Breathe new life into your synthesizers! In the other direction, almost all Melodyne parameters can be controlled remotely via MIDI and automated. You can use any MIDI controller you like for this; for particularly popular models, Melodyne comes with ready-made adaptations.
