New in Version 5.4.1

The update to Version 5.4.1 contains improvements and bug fixes, which is why we recommend it to all users.

  • Language localization: Switching to the French language version no longer worked, the previously selected language was retained.
  • Windows: Under certain circumstances on some Japanese, Korean or Chinese systems, Melodyne failed to launch.
  • macOS: On some systems, graphic errors could occur after closing the toolbox.
  • ARA: It was sometimes impossible to edit the Chord and Key tracks.

Version history

Features and improvements in previous versions

  • Pro Tools and Cubase with ARA: When opening a project with Melodyne, crashes sometimes occurred.
  • Pro Tools with ARA: Deleting a clip from a stereo track with Melodyne ARA during playback sometimes led to a crash.
  • All versions under Windows: In the event of a faulty connection with the Celemony server, a crash sometimes occurred.
  • Pro Tools with ARA: When repeated use was made of the Undo function in Melodyne, under very special circumstances Pro Tools could crash.
  • ARA and plug-in: Under certain circumstances, not every note was included in local playback.
  • ARA: When creating a new project, the DAW under certain circumstances displayed an error message even though the new project was error-free.
  • Surround: In both ARA and Transfer modes, Melodyne can now also be used for the editing of tracks in the standard surround formats.
  • ARA in Pro Tools: Melodyne 5.3 comes with all the technical prerequisites for ARA integration into Pro Tools from Version 2022.9 upwards and thus makes a significantly improved workflow in Pro Tools possible.
  • Preferences: When Melodyne is employed for the first time as a plug-in, it loads the set of keyboard shortcuts corresponding to the DAW you are using.
  • Compatibility: In version 5.2, Melodyne now runs natively on Macs with Apple Silicon processors. The Mac version is supplied in Universal Binary format with native code for processors from Intel/AMD and Apple.
  • The playback function: In ARA mode and when using the transfer plug-in, you can now trigger playback of the current blob selection using the shortcut Alt+Space.
  • macOS 11 Big Sur: Melodyne 5.1 is compatible with macOS 11 Big Sur on Intel-based Macs as well as on ARM-based Macs under “Rosetta”.
  • DAW-oriented keyboard shortcuts: We are always looking for ways to make the operation of Melodyne even easier for users of digital audio workstations. That’s why we’ve included sets of keyboard shortcuts customized for Pro Tools, Logic, Cubase and Studio One in Version 5.1. You can choose the set you want from the Shortcuts page of the Preferences dialog.
  • Exporting lead sheets: It is now possible to export the contents of the Chord Track as a lead sheet via MIDI; you will find the relevant command in the Chord Track’s context menu.
  • Algorithm selection: During ARA operation with Cakewalk, Melodyne’s Select Algorithm menu is now displayed prior to any MIDI export.
  • ARA improvements: The interaction with ARA DAWs has been optimized in various ways – partly to ensure compatibility with future DAW versions.
  • New keyboard shortcuts: It is now also possible to assign keyboard shortcuts to the following commands: “Show Sibilants”, “Note Leveling”, “Copy Song Data to Note Assignment…” and “Copy Note Assignment Data to Song…”.
