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.

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.

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 functionality comes with Melodyne 4.1 and later. 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.

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.

Work with scales in a musical way

Melodyne 4 essential’s scale collection allows you to work swiftly and in a musical way.

Just choose a scale and as soon as you start moving notes, they’ll snap automatically to suitable pitches. Not only simple and useful, but also very inspiring.

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.

Plug-in and stand-alone

Melodyne 4 runs as a stand-alone application or as a plug-in within your DAW.

This gives you the best of both worlds, as each mode has its own advantages. And since the choice is yours, you can use Melodyne 4 in whichever way is most convenient at any particular time.

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.
