Celemony Announces Direct Note Access for Melodyne – Edit Individual Notes Inside Chords
Celemony has announced a new audio editing technology called Direct Note Access. With Direct Note Access it is possible for the first time to edit individual notes within polyphonic audio material. (holy sh*t! —Ed.) Possible applications range from the simple correction of errors to the complete refashioning of harmonies and timing.
The first product to feature the revolutionary Direct Note Access will be Melodyne plug-in 2, which is due for release in the fall. With its unique editing possibilities and solid sound quality, Melodyne has for years been regarded worldwide as the leading audio tool for pitch correction and the refashioning of timing and melody. With Direct Note Access, the Munich software house Celemony is now offering the next stage in its evolution: access (including the full range of editing possibilities) to individual notes within recordings of polyphonic instruments. (You’ve got to watch the demo! See below… —Ed.)
With Direct Note Access, polyphonic audio material is exploded in the Melodyne Editorâ€™s display, so that the user can see the individual notes of a chord displayed at their various pitches and edit them individually using the familiar Melodyne tools. As parameters, you therefore have access to the pitch, position in time and duration of each note as well as its vibrato, pitch drift and formant spectrum â€“ you can also change the volume and even the internal evolution of each note.
Direct Note Access makes possible fascinating and enormously useful types of intervention in the audio material that were unthinkable before, ranging from subtle correction to re-composition. This new dimension in audio editing will create new and immeasurable value to material from your sampling libraries.
“We are delighted, with Direct Note Access, to have made a reality something of which we â€“ and others too â€“ have long dreamed. The access to, and ability to edit, individual notes within polyphonic audio material is the logical continuation of something that has always been our aim with Melodyne,â€ reflects Melodyne inventor Peter NeubÃ¤cker.
Celemony’s Melodyne Plug-in will be available this fall. More information on Celemony’s new Melodyne technology.
