The Celemony secret is out 30/08/05Beginning September, Digidesign will be bundling Melodyne Essential free of charge with the Pro Tools software.
Pro Tools users will benefit from Melodyneâ€™s unique functions for pitch correction, vocal production and melody editing.
Melodyne essential is a cut-down version of Melodyne uno. It works like a sample editor and offers many of Melodyneâ€™s unique audio editing functions.
The functions for editing intonation and timing manually are all available in this free version, and Melodyneâ€™s legendary sound quality is similarly
uncompromised. The ultra practical Correct Pitch and Quantize Time macros, as well as the expert tools for detailed editing of formants and vibrato are
only available in demo mode. Melodyne essential supports all commonly used audio formats and integrates with Pro Tools via the ReWire interface.
"In the past, Melodyne was a secret known only to the initiated," says
Celemony's Managing Director, Anselm RÃ¶ÃŸler. "This collaboration with
Digidesign, however, proves that our unique technology is now established as
the standard for the correction of intonation and timing errors."
Melodyne uno essential is included free with every Pro Tools Ignition bundle
for Windows and Mac OS X and will be distributed worldwide by Digidesign.
Upgrades from the essential to the full version of Melodyne uno are
available for USD 99,- (99,-â‚¬) from music dealers and the Celemony web site.
