To learn more about the advantages the update to Melodyne 4 editor brings you, read on!

Elegant, user-friendly, modern

Exceptional user-friendliness and a swift workflow.

With its variably configurable, single-window interface, you can adapt Melodyne perfectly to your own preferences and working requirements. What’s more, the browsers and inspectors provide you with the ideal overview of your material as well as direct access to all important parameters.

Under the hood, state-of-the-art software technology is at work – optimized for the latest operating systems, fully compatible with both 32- and 64-bit environments, and implemented both as a plug-in and as a stand-alone application.

Tempo intelligence

The tempo algorithms detect tempos, including any changes in tempo, and time signatures more reliably and with greater precision than ever before.

Melodyne 4 tracks precisely the tempo of a live recording, with all its human inconstancy. The ensuing click keeps time with the musicians, not the other way around. And still, you enjoy all the practical benefits of a beat-based grid when working in your DAW.
Furthermore, you can curb excessive wandering in tempo without ironing-out the minor fluctuations that lend charm to a live performance. You can also synchronize recordings with quite different tempos or variations in tempo.

Melodyne 4 makes working with tempo dead simple, letting you work with greater freedom, in new ways.

Optimize note detection

Two DNA algorithms for polyphonic recordings.

To obtain optimal sound quality with different types of polyphonic material, you can select between two DNA algorithms: “Sustain” (for strings, organs,...) and “Decay” (for pianos, guitars,…).

Since you can edit the note detection in detail, you can manage complex material even more effectively, make even more detailed and precise changes, and obtain even higher sound quality from your editing.

Better integrated via ARA: Melodyne and Logic

Thanks to ARA Audio Random Access, Melodyne 4.2 and Logic Pro X 10.4.2 work more closely and efficiently together. Here are the most important workflow advantages in a nutshell.

You can open tracks without transfers: Just load Melodyne as an insert effect, start playback and the entire track will appear automatically in Melodyne. There is no further need for transfers.

Melodyne follows all changes you make to the track: Melodyne compares its contents to those of the audio track and accurately replicates any lengthening, shortening or movement of regions.

Real copies and ghost copies of regions: When regions are copied, looped or cloned, the Melodyne content behaves accordingly as a real copy or as a ghost copy (Loop).

Region-based mixing: Regions edited with Melodyne now support all the mix functions of the region inspector in Logic: Region Gain, Mute and Fades.

You can use Melodyne as early as the comping stage: Now you can edit takes with Melodyne before committing yourself to a choice between them, which gives you a more realistic assessment of their respective merits, leading to better results.

The management of transfer files is a thing of the past: Thanks to ARA, there is no need anymore to keep transfer files in mind and archive them or pass them on to collaborators.

Important for Logic users: the new functions in overview

Time-stretching for entire mixes

The Universal Algorithm in Melodyne is ideally suited to the time-stretching and pitch-shifting of entire mixes.

The algorithm also delivers outstanding results with polyphonic material, provided no access to individual notes is required. With its exceptional sound quality and modest CPU demands, ‘Universal’ is a highly useful and valuable Melodyne algorithm.

Dynamic just intonation

Melodyne’s just intonation provides for sound with a particularly transparent and penetrating character.

Whether you’re working on an orchestral, choral or synthesizer recording, you’ll find justly tuned chords sound smoother and more powerful. Give your production the benefit of this unique acoustic impression.

Loads of keyboard shortcuts

Melodyne offers a large number of keyboard shortcuts that allow you to work at a very swift pace.

And since you can reassign all the keyboard shortcuts at will, you can control Melodyne exactly as you wish, working still more efficiently and with still greater ease.
