Version 3.1 of Melodyne/Cre8 Studio Now Available
Celemony has released an update for Melodyne Studio and Cre8. Melodyne 3.1 runs native on Intel Macs, is compatible with the new Melodyne Sound Library and supports as an option the iLok dongle.
Melodyne 3.1 runs as ‘Universal Binary’ now also native on Intel Macs, if desired stand-alone or connected via ReWire, VST, AU or RTAS with a host. The new version inaugurates the Melodyne Sound Library. The very high-quality sounds are derived from Ueberschall’s Liquid Instruments, and were specially conceived, recorded and prepared for flexible use with Melodyne technology.
In version 3.1, Melodyne studio and cre8 can use the iLok dongle as an option for authorisation, making the flexible use of Melodyne on different computers and in different studios possible, even if you own one Melodyne license only. If you do not wish to use the iLok dongle, you can still authorize your Melodyne 3.1 with the existing procedure of challenge and response.
Among other new features are the simple management of used audio files, a switchable pitch grid, extended combi tools, a common reset function for all pitch editing, new keyboard commands, a percentage entry for time stretching and a tempo tapping function. In addition, the polyphonic algorithm of the studio version has again been considerably improved.
Melodyne 3.1 also exports tracks notewise now if desired. Where possible, the MIDI Root Key is written automatically into the files created â€“ which is ideal as it allows you to use these quickly in the sampler and without the additional trouble of mapping. In addition, the new version now also reads automatically the tempo information contained in many files (e.g. Apple Loops and Acid files).
For version 3.1, all known bugs have been fixed and ReWire stability further improved. “We have spent a lot of time to solve problems which our users have occured while working with Melodyne,” explains Celemony’s CEO Carsten Gehle. “It is particularly pleasing that we were able to remove all known bugs. Moreover, we managed to make Melodyne yet a little more efficient; especially the PC version benefits from many improvements. We have listened very closely to criticism, feature wishes and further suggestions from our users. Without them, Melodyne 3.1 would not be the version which it is now: a very reliable and decent version!”
The update to Melodyne cre8/studio 3.1 is free for all registered 3.x customers. New customers can purchase the current version from Celemony’s online store or from music dealers.
