Celemony Melodyne Editor
Celemony has released the long-awaited upgrade of Melodyne editor (Mac/Win) with what promises to be jaw-dropping new technology, Direct Note Access (DNA). The program comes in stand-alone and AU, VST and RTAS plug-in versions, and it offers iLok activation or challenge/response authorization on two computers. The big news, of course, is the ability to unravel polyphonic material so as to adjust the pitch, amplitude, timing, formants and various nuances of the constituent parts. The stand-alone version can also export a MIDI file matching a polyphonic part, which is useful for scoring and part doubling. As with previous versions, you also get modes for reshaping rhythmic and monophonic material.
