DNA Direct Note Access is the technology that makes the impossible possible by allowing individual notes in polyphonic material to be identified and edited. The unique access that Melodyne offers to the pitch, timing, duration and other parameters of notes in monophonic material is extended through DNA Direct Note Access to include notes forming part of chords.
Like Melodyne itself, DNA Direct Note Access is a development that has radically and forever altered the handling of audio. In the world of digital image processing, it has long been possible with the right software not only to correct depicted reality down to the smallest details but also, literally, to create new worlds: images that depict with total credibility something that has never existed. DNA Direct Note Access offers Melodyne users comparable freedom in the realm of audio. Melodyne with DNA Direct Note Access allows you to intervene in the audio material in ways that were unthinkable before and that range from subtle enhancements to re-composition.
When at the beginning of 2008 DNA Direct Note Access was first demonstrated, it created a considerable stir. A few months later, a film team visited Melodyne’s inventor, Peter Neubäcker, in his laboratory to find out more about this revolutionary technology. The result is a 14-minute interview that offers a deep insight into the possibilities of DNA Direct Note Access.
