Celemony releases Melodyne editor 2

Celemony Melodyne editor 2

Celemony has announced the availability of Melodyne editor Version 2.

New features include extended timing tools, wide-ranging functions for working with scales, plus Rewire, keyboard shortcuts in the plug-in, and numerous other improvements.

With Version 2, Melodyne editor has become still more musical, capable of editing in still greater depth, and even more widely compatible.

Changes in Melodyne editor 2.0

  • Extended timing tools: With the Attack Speed tool, you can edit the transients that are of crucial importance to the sound – even for each note individually: an important creative tool not only for percussive sounds. In addition, the new Time Handles allow you to shape even the time course within notes, which, for example, makes even more detailed editing of vocal phrasing possible.
  • True Scale & Tuning: The new scale functions now permit even the editing of Arabic, Indian, contemporary and microtonal music with Melodyne. Countless scales, temperaments and tunings can be loaded, edited in detail or created from scratch. The highlight is the Scale Detective, which is capable of analyzing any piece of music or sample so that even users with no detailed knowledge can transfer the scale and tuning of one recording to another.
  • Rewire support: Melodyne should be of use to as many producers as possible – regardless of which DAW they work with. For this reason, Melodyne editor now also supports Rewire and therefore allows operation with DAWs that have no plug-in interfaces or were previously incompatible with Melodyne.
  • Greater transparency and ease of use through features like keyboard shortcuts in plug-in mode, highlighting of blobs as they play back, and an improved display of the time and pitch grids.

Melodyne editor for Windows and Mac (VST/AU/RTAS/Standalone) is available to purchase for 399 USD/EUR. The update from Melodyne editor 1 is 99 USD/EUR. The update is free for users who registered Melodyne editor for the first time after October 1, 2011.

Celemony intros Melodyne editor 2

Celemonyhas announced version 2 of its Melodyne editor, offering unique possibilities for working with different scales and temperaments, more powerful timing tools, Rewire integration, and numerous other improvements.

Celemony Melodyne editor 2

Not all music is played on white and black keys, true intonation is complex. Other cultures have musical traditions in which Mozart and Beethoven do not loom large, and absolute flexibility is also needed in experimental music. Powerful reasons for opening up totally new musical worlds with Melodyne editor 2. The new True Scale & Tuning functions offer those who produce Arab, Indian or contemporary and microtonal music the ideal function set for editing their work with Melodyne. True Scale & Tuning also has the power to enhance conventional music production, by making it easy for users to explore the emotional and atmospheric subtleties of different scales and temperaments and integrate them into their own music. Countless different scales and temperaments can be loaded, edited in detail, and even created from scratch. The highlight is the Scale Detective, which is capable of analyzing any sample or piece of music and allows even users with no detailed knowledge to transfer the scale and tuning of one recording to another.

With its note-based way of working Melodyne has always allowed the editing of highly specific aspects of timing, but the function set of Melodyne editor 2 is even more powerful in this respect. The new Attack Speed tool allows you to edit the starting transients, that are so determinative of the sound – even for each note separately. An important new design implement, not only for percussive sounds. In addition, with the new Time Handles, even time progressions within individual notes can be reshaped. Among other things, this makes even more detailed editing of vocals possible.

Melodyne is intended to be of use to as many producers as possible – regardless which DAW they use. For this reason, Melodyne editor 2 now also supports Rewire. This means it can operate now even with DAWs that lack plug-in interfaces or were previously incompatible with Melodyne.

The update to Version 2 brings other minor improvements and workflow optimizations that along with Rewire integration are also included in the free updates to Version 2 of Melodyne assistant and essential.

Melodyne editor 2 will be available in November 2011, priced 399 USD/EUR, the update from version 1 is 99 USD/EUR. Users who registered Melodyne editor after October 1, 2011 can update free of charge.

At the same time as the update to Melodyne editor 2, free updates to Version 2 of Melodyne assistant and essential will be released, as well as an updated trial version that allows you to test Melodyne editor for 30 days without any limitations.

PreSonus Studio One 2

PreSonus has announced Studio One 2, a music production software for Windows and Mac.

Just two years ago, Studio One changed the DAW world with unprecedented ease of use and blazing fast workflow. Studio One 2 takes things to the next level by vastly expanding capability without increasing complexity.

Changes in Studio One 2

  • Integrated Melodyne Pitch Correction – Celemony’s Melodyne is the most sought-after pitch-correction solution in the market, and it has been the model for proprietary solutions in several DAWs. Studio One 2 seamlessly integrates Melodyne so tightly that, for practical purposes, Melodyne is simply a part of Studio One.? Learn more
  • Transient Detection, Editing, and Groove Extraction – Sure, you can do transient detection and editing in other DAWs—but it’s slow, and you often have to make a lot of decisions along the way. In Studio One, you can quantize multitrack drums in two steps: group the tracks, then quantize. Studio One does the analysis and phase-coherent quantization for you—with great-sounding results! Want to quantize audio to other existing audio? Drag-and-drop audio into the Groove panel, then quantize. Groove extraction is as simple as drag-and-drop; extract a groove from any audio and apply it to any other audio in seconds!
  • Multitrack Comping Done Right – Single and multitrack comping are quick and easy in Studio One—and faster than with most DAWs! No tool-switching is needed, and crossfading between takes is automated, although you can edit the fades. Auditioning takes is as simple as holding Alt and clicking on a take—no more manually soloing entire lanes, as in other DAWs.
  • Stay Organized – Keeping everything organized can be critical to an efficient workflow, which is a breeze with the new Folder Tracks and Track List.
  • Enhanced Mastering with Studio One Professional – No other DAW offers a truly integrated mastering suite comparable to the Project page in Studio One Professional. Mastering an album is much more than sequencing and level-matching. Studio One Professional provides all of the necessary tools for professional production, including a phase meter and spectrum and peak/RMS level meters with K-System options. To all of this, Studio One Professional 2 adds DDP Export, PQ editing, higher-quality sample-rate conversion, and other professional features.
  • Much more – details here.

Studio One 2 is expected to ship November, 2011, and will be available to purchase in three versions:

  • Studio One Artist ($99 USD) delivers all of the core audio and MIDI recording and editing features, plus 26 32-bit effects plug-ins and 4 virtual instruments, and there is no limit on track count and plug-in instantiations.
  • Studio One Producer ($199 USD) includes everything in Studio One Artist and adds support for ReWire and AU/VST plug-ins, MP3 import and export, and additional third-party content.
  • Studio One Professional ($399 USD) has everything in Studio One Artist and Producer and adds the Project page, an integrated mastering solution; fully licensed Melodyne Essential pitch correction; SoundCloud support; Red Book CD burning; video playback and sync; and five more Native Effects plug-ins.

Celemony updates Melodyne to v1.3

Celemony Melodyne

Celemony has updated its Melodyne product line to version 1.3.

With Version 1.3, Melodyne is more reliable and efficient to work with than ever. Continuous lines representing the selected time grid provide for greater clarity in the editing pane, thereby making modifying the timing of notes easier. A double click now quantizes notes to the time grid selected by the user, making it possible to shape the rhythm of the material more swiftly and accurately. In the stand-alone version of Melodyne, a new option is now available that saves a copy of the audio files involved when you are saving MPD files. This simplifies the handling of projects. Version 1.3 is also compatible with Mac OS X 10.7 Lion and the corresponding Lion versions of leading DAWs.

Changes in Melodyne v1.3

  • [Stand-Alone] Consolidate Audio Files when saving MPDs – When saving a Melodyne Project Document (MPD) all necessary audio files can optionally be saved along in a subfolder. These files are copies, while the original ones remain untouched at their original location. To activate this function check Consolidate Audio Files in the Save dialog.
  • Vertical grid lines – Depending on the user settings in the time ruler (1/8, 1/16, etc.) you will see respective lines in the Blob background, which allow for easier orientation when moving or stretching Blobs.
  • Double-click quantization – When you double-click a blob with the Time Tool, the quantization reflects the set grid now.
  • [Stand-Alone] Re-detect Tempo – With the new Re-detect Tempo option in the Tempo dialog you can go back to the original file tempo at any time – regardless of how many other edits you have done in the meantime.
  • Installer size – The installers for Mac and Windows are smaller in file size now. In Version 1.2.1 they used to install videos and audio arrangements along with the program. These additional files are not included anymore and can now be accessed online. To do so, follow the links in the Welcome splash screen (which can also be accessed from the Help menu).

The Melodyne editor, assistant and essential update is now available for existing users, free of charge.

Celemony Capstan wow and flutter removal

Related: , , , , Posted in news on Jun 29, 2011 - comment 2 comments
Celemony Capstan

Celemony has released Capstan, a program for removing wow and flutter from recorded music.

Capstan is an all new method to correct wow and flutter problems. It detects pitch problems directly from the inside of the musical signal and corrects them as straightforward as possible: by speeding up and down the playback of your audio file directly reciprocal to the speed changes which generated the problems.

Being musically intelligent, the Capstan algorithm is capable of recognizing not only the minutest amounts of wow and flutter but also continuous speed variations within the musical material itself and makes possible detailed editing that extends even to drawing in the curve manually. It is based on the patented DNA Direct Note Access technology made famous by the award-winning program Melodyne, which is used worldwide in all major studios for the editing of pitch and timing.

Whilst the precise detection of the wow and flutter represents the actual technological revolution, repairing the recording is easy: the musical material is simply played back with the velocity curve inverted. Pure varispeed – guaranteed free from artifacts.

Capstan for Windows and Mac is available to purchase for $4,458 USD / €3,790 EUR.

Celemony announces Capstan, wow and flutter removal tool

Related: , , , , Posted in news on May 16, 2011 - comment 0 comments

Celemony has announced Capstan, a tool to remove wow and flutter from audio recordings.

Celemony Capstan

For over 100 years, music has been recorded on mechanical storage mediums, and for over 100 years such recordings have been plagued by the same problems: wow and flutter. Who isn’t familiar with the wobbling and warbling, the droning and dragging? Mechanical degradation caused by defective devices or sticking tapes, by aging or defective storage. Furthermore, wow and flutter were for the most part irremediable.

Countless recordings of renowned orchestras, big bands and rock groups are currently slumbering deep in archives because precisely this problem has rendered them unusable. The tapes worthless, the recordings lost to posterity. Until now.

For with Capstan there is now for the first time a program capable of removing wow and flutter from musical recordings – whether on tape, compact cassette, wax, shellac or vinyl. Capstan detects wow and flutter by analyzing the musical material itself, so the medium is of no relevance. In this, Capstan is clearly superior to solutions such as bias tracking, because Capstan still works even if the tape has already been copied several times or digitized only in low resolution.

Being musically intelligent, the Capstan algorithm is capable of recognizing not only the minutest amounts of wow and flutter but also continuous speed variations within the musical material itself and makes possible detailed editing that extends even to drawing in the curve manually. It is based on the patented DNA Direct Note Access technology made famous by the award-winning program Melodyne, which is used worldwide in all major studios for the editing of pitch and timing.

Whilst the precise detection of the wow and flutter represents the actual technological revolution, repairing the recording is easy: the musical material is simply played back with the velocity curve inverted. Pure varispeed – guaranteed free from artifacts.

Capstan will be available for Windows and Mac (standalone 64-bit) mid June 2011. Estimated price is 3,790 EUR. A demo version will be made available on the Celemony website.

We’ve been around now for 10 years; and so, for 10 years, has Melodyne. We would like to express our thanks with ten of the legendary wooden boxes in which the first Melodyne was delivered.

Three people whose names are drawn from among those leaving greetings will each receive one of the ten boxes.

The fourth box will go to the person who comes up with the best greeting, selected by our jury.
