Now available, this update brings 64-bit support and improved transfer handling, as well as extending MIDI export to the plug-in implementations of Melodyne editor and assistant. Melodyne essential supports additional plug-in formats and can now also be operated in stand-alone mode.
Melodyne can now be used on more tracks and process longer transfers, as well as being extremely stable in operation. Major gains have been made not only in terms of performance and reliability, but also in terms of speed: The detection of the transferred material with V. 1.2 is up to 30-percent quicker, even in 32-bit operation.
The handling of transfer storage paths is easier in V. 1.2 and more transparent, too. In many DAWs (currently Cubase 5.5, Nuendo 5, Pro Tools LE/MP 8.0.4, Pro Tools HD 8.1), the saving of transfers is automatic in the current DAW project. The list of DAWs supported by Celemony and tested with Melodyne also includes from V. 1.2 onward SONAR, Digital Performer, Nuendo and Studio One.
The newly extended list of supported DAWs also applies to the edition Melodyne essential: This, from V. 1.2 onward, has dropped the RTAS from its name, as it supports not only RTAS, but also the AU and VST plug-in interfaces and can be used not only with Pro Tools, but also with other DAWs. Melodyne essential can also, if desired, run in stand-alone mode.
The documents of each edition can now be opened in each of the other two editions and edited with the functions and tools the latter provides.
The saving of audio as MIDI notes is a creative function in Melodyne editor and Melodyne assistant. It makes it possible, for example, to double a vocal line with a synthesizer sound. With V. 1.2, MIDI export is available not only in the stand-alone, but also in the various plug-in implementations of Melodyne editor and Melodyne assistant, the result being for the MIDI data a significant shortening of the path to the DAW.
The update to V. 1.2 is free for registered users.
