More elegant, user-friendly and modern
Melodyne 4 is easier to use and accelerates your workflow.
With its variably configurable, single-window interface, you can adapt Melodyne perfectly to your own preferences and working requirements. What’s more, the new browsers and inspectors afford a better overview 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.
New tempo intelligence
Melodyne 4’s new tempo algorithms detect tempos, time signatures and any changes in tempo more accurately 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.
Better note detection
Melodyne 4 now offers two algorithms optimized for polyphonic recordings.
Depending upon the audio material, Melodyne employs either the Polyphonic Sustain (strings, organs…) or Polyphonic Decay (pianos, guitars…) Algorithm to obtain optimal sound quality in each case.
Moreover, you can edit the note detection in far greater detail and therefore manage complex material still more effectively.
So you can work even more closely and precisely on your music and obtain still higher sound quality from your editing.
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 an invaluable addition to Melodyne’s array of algorithms.
Many more keyboard shortcuts
Freely assignable keyboard shortcuts let you control Melodyne 4 exactly as you wish.
In stand-alone mode and now finally in the plug-in implementation. So you can work more easily at a far swifter tempo. An enormous gain in efficiency.
Dynamic just intonation
Melodyne 4’s just intonation adds transparency and penetration to the sound.
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.
