Celemony Software announces Version 3.1 of the audio software Melodyne cre8/studio. The new version runs native on Macs with Intel processors, supports as an option the iLok dongle and is compatible with the new Melodyne Sound Library.
In addition, numerous requests from customers have been implemented and improvements in all areas carried out. The upgrade to Version 3.1 will probably be available at the end of April and is free for all registered users of Melodyne cre8/studio.
Melodyne 3.1 runs as ‘Universal Binary’ now also native on Intel Macs, if desired stand-alone or connected via ReWire, VST, AU and RTAS with a host.
Optionally and as an alternative to the procedure to date, the new version can use the iLok dongle for authorisation, making the flexible use of Melodyne on different computers and in different studios possible. Customers used to iLok do not have to use another authorisation procedure in parallel. Melodyne 3.1 inaugurates the new ‘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.
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 command for restoration of the last saved version.
Melodyne 3.1 also exports tracks notewise now if desired, whereby – where possible – the MIDI Root Key is written automatically into the files created – 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 also been fixed and ReWire stability further improved.
The update to Melodyne cre8/studio 3.1 is free for all registered customers and will be available for download from www.celemony.com.
Melodyne cre8 for Windows XP and Mac OS X costs 319 euros ($369), whilst the large version, Melodyne studio, with the additional algorithm for polyphonic material costs 699 euros ($US699).
Both are available from music dealers as well as from www.celemony.com. You will find more information at www.celemony.com
