The award-winning software Melodyne is used across all genres as the latest videos of the Melodyne artist talk series show. With Kipper, Andy Sneap and Mr. Woo producers of pop, heavy metal and urban music all praise the sound, the usability and the creative possibilities of Melodyne.
Melodyne is a program for your Mac or PC that offers truly extraordinary possibilities for the editing of audio. For Melodyne recognizes the notes that are sung or played in your recording and shows them to you. It’s almost like the recording turns into sheet music again.
In Melodyne, you don’t work like a technician with meaningless wave forms but like a musician with notes. Melodyne displays each note as a “blob” that you can grab and move, stretch or squeeze, and edit in a wide variety of ways.
“Going down a third or tuning a guitar later doesn’t change the quality and the honestness of the recording. That’s why Melodyne is so amazing to me.” Kipper (Sting, Stevie Wonder, Mary J Blige, James Morrison) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DZ81YyEXYTU
“In metal, bass players tend to hit the strings 10 to 15 cents sharp and I use Melodyne to pull some sections back into shape.” Andy Sneap (Megadeth, Cradle of Filth, Machine Head) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sL3jr76lpmw
“Melodyne has pioneered where we are in urban music right now.” Laurence Woo Allen (Cam’ron, Craig David, Liberty X, B2K) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BS6P90YV_ZU
