Correcting intonation is just the beginning. When Melodyne analyzes your recordings, it doesn’t just track the changing pitch of the signal. Identifying the individual notes in polyphonic recordings is a far more complex process. And that isn’t all. For Melodyne also separates the notes from one another in the right places, observes how they change over time, and locates sibilants. It identifies tempos and maps tempo progressions with great accuracy. It relates the pitches of the notes to one another to identify scales, keys and chords. In short: Melodyne takes a very thorough look at your recordings. And the depth and subtlety of its analysis, together with the algorithms, put editing functions of corresponding depth and subtlety at your fingertips.
A few examples: Three different tools are provided for the editing of pitch, so the vibrato does not suffer when the overall pitch of a note is changed. Melodyne distinguishes between the pitched and noise-like components of notes, allowing you to edit them separately. And the correction macros work intelligently, reining in “outliers”, while preserving subtle human fluctuations in pitch, volume or tempo. You will find editing functions of similar subtlety and sophistication in all areas of Melodyne.
