To learn more about the advantages the upgrade to Melodyne 4 studio 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 and direct access to all important parameters.

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

Multitrack Note Editing

With Melodyne 4 studio, you can work on an unlimited number of tracks – even with DNA Direct Note Access for polyphonic material.

Multitrack editing has one very important advantage: you can see and edit the notes of as many tracks as you like simultaneously. The harmonies, melodies and rhythms of your project can all be viewed in context. And you can reach into this plastic image of the music, select notes and modify them, regardless of which tracks they belong to.

This works not only in stand-alone mode but also in the plug-in. On all DAW tracks with the Melodyne 4 studio plug-in inserted. Never before has the musical interplay of multiple tracks been as readily observed or intuitively edited.

For polyphonic instruments too

You can also use Melodyne for polyphonic recordings.

Thanks to our patented DNA Direct Note Access technology, with Melodyne 4 you can edit not only vocals and monophonic instruments but also polyphonic ones like pianos and guitars – right down to the individual notes within chords. Turn major into minor, a quiet third into a loud one, chords into arpeggios. Explore hitherto unknown avenues for creativity.

New soundscapes with the Sound Editor

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.

Melodyne recognizes the notes and their overtones – also a decisive advantage when it comes to sound processing. While conventional equalizers only act upon fixed frequencies, Melodyne adapts to the audio material itself. Adjust the level of individual overtones within each track, shape the basic sound of each instrument, relate the timbre or envelope of each note to its pitch, bring out the character of each sound source.
The results are novel acoustically, often unique, invariably invigorating – yet the Sound Editor is intuitive and lends itself easily to creative use.

All the tools, all the functions

With the full set of tools, you can edit your notes in more detail, with greater musical sensitivity.

Modify not only the pitch but also the vibrato, pitch drift and transitions between notes. Edit the timing with greater precision, color the sound through formant shifting, and control the volume of every note. Melodyne power could do your recordings a world of good.

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.

Work better with ARA

Thanks to ARA, the operation of Melodyne in compatible DAWs is particularly user-friendly – and with Melodyne 4, ARA is now even better and more powerful.

With ARA integration, you can access individual clips or entire DAW tracks without transfers – Multitrack Note Editing for the simultaneous editing of multiple tracks included!

In the new ARA Clip Mode, you can also see and edit such content when it lies beyond the borders of a clip in the DAW. This means that when comping vocals you can swiftly correct notes sliced in two by clip borders, which dramatically streamlines the comping workflow in the DAW. In the companion ARA Track Mode, you can access entire DAW tracks with all the clips they contain – exactly as these are cut and arranged in the DAW. The two modes complement each other perfectly and offer ideal editing possibilities for your DAW tracks.

The expanded ARA possibilities are available from Melodyne 4.1 upwards. ARA is currently supported by Logic Pro X, Studio One, Cakewalk/Sonar, Samplitude, Sequoia, Mixcraft and Waveform. Since the DAW manufacturers support ARA in different ways, the range of ARA functions varies from DAW to DAW. You will find details of the ARA support in the documentation of the DAW in question.

Track-transcending macros

In Melodyne 4 studio, the macros are even more useful because they are not confined to a single track.

Select notes from as many tracks as you like and correct their intonation or timing in one go. Furthermore, synchronizing tracks is particularly easy: just define one track as the quantization master and sync all the other tracks to it.

The world of scales and tunings

Melodyne 4 allows you to work with whatever scales and tunings you like, including exotic or experimental ones.

Unusual scale structures and irregular tuning are often important musical parameters that ought not to be ironed out. For this reason, Melodyne 4 supports every conceivable scale or tuning system, allowing you to handle the nuances of each musical genre with sensitivity.
You can also define and edit scales and tuning systems, as well as analyze those found in existing audio material.

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.
