Melodyne studio is the largest member of the Melodyne family. With this most powerful version you are no longer limited to the editing of monophonic melodies, but you can also handle complex textures and even polyphonic material, such as chords or song mixes! Furthermore, Melodyne studio is a complete audio multi-tracker with an unlimited number of tracks and a high resolution of up to 32 bit and 192 kHz.
Recording artists and engineers have known about Melodyne for years. For a long time, though, it was only monophonic vocal and instrumental parts that could benefit from Melodyne's much-admired editing algorithms: algorithms capable of everything from minor corrections of intonation to extreme pitch shifting and from the subtle modification of grooves to drastic time stretching.
Melodyne studio 3 introduces this magic to full chords and complex audio signals as well; so now harmonic material (such as rhythm guitar or piano parts) can be transposed (without altering the tempo), slowed down or sped up (without altering the pitch) and even quantized. What's more, all this can be done in real time with the highest sound quality for which Melodyne is famous. You might already know pitch shifting and time stretching from other programs, yet with Melodyne, even extreme alterations still sound natural and convincing. Please check our sound examples to hear the difference!
Although Melodyne studio is the perfect tool for correcting timing and intonation of audio recordings, it is also far more than just that. It is a full multi-track application which allows for complete song productions and creative arrangements. Melodyne studio offers you an unlimited number of audio tracks - depending on your computer system..
However, if you prefer to record in your familiar recording software (eg. ProTools, Logic, Cubase, Sonar and more), Melodyne studio supports a full integration, too. You have two options to link both applications: the ReWire protocol and Celemony's MelodyneBridge. For most production scenarios the MelodyneBridge is far more convenient to work with than a ReWire connection.
Melodyne studio 3 can read sample libraries created using Melodyne technology such as those of Ueberschall's Liquid Instruments (from version 3.0) or the Melodyne Sound Libraries(from version 3.1), thereby obtaining access to an almost inexhaustible supply of licks and phrases.
Even if you are familiar with previous versions of Melodyne, you might want to consider an update to Melodyne studio 3 to benefit from the automatic and reliable note recognition or the Correct Pitch and Quantize Time macros, which allow the most common flaws in vocal and instrumental recordings to be removed with a few mouse clicks. With the Melody Manager you can comfortably browse audio files on your hard disk.
