Celemony Releases Melodyne Plug-In

Correct pitch and timing, quantize audio, restructure melodies and more. Supported interfaces are VST, AU and RTAS.
With the ultra-flexible Melodyne plugin, editing audio becomes fast and easy. Thanks to its musical display, unique time-stretching and pitch-shifting algorithms, unmatched sound quality and intuitive operation, Melodyne plugin makes the resolution of timing and intonation problems child’s play, thereby simplifying, and increasing the efficiency of, day-to-day music production in the studio. At the same time, Melodyne plugin offers fantastic creative possibilities way beyond the scope of conventional audio software.
The main application area of Melodyne plugin is the intuitive correction of the pitch and timing of notes in vocal recordings. With Melodyne plugin you can also, however, edit and optimize single-voice instrument recordings as well as drum and percussion tracks in a flexible manner.
Once the passage you wish to work on has been transferred from the host track, Melodyne plugin offers you context-sensitive tools for editing manually the pitch, vibrato, drift, timing, volume and formants of individual notes as well as the swift editing of any selection of notes with macros for the automatic correction of intonation and timing. A multi-level Undo function provides for carefree editing, and a selectable scale grid for harmonically correct transposition. For Pitch, Formants and Volume, rotary controls are provided that permit the real-time manipulation of these parameters and can be automated from the host.
