Celemony has introduced Melodyne and Remix, a new tutorial series for the Melodyne audio editing software.
In a new tutorial feature devoted to the creative use of Melodyne, Celemony is focussing on remixing.
Melodyne is known as a great tool for the correction of intonation errors and the optimization of vocal tracks, but is capable of much more. A series of video tutorials now shows how Melodyne helps to separate a vocal part from its accompaniment, how to produce crazy echoes and other effects with Melodyne’s characteristic audio notes and how to use audio-to-MIDI to double or replace sounds.
Fundamentals, such as how to adapt loops fast to new musical contexts and the more efficient use of Melodyne in a DAW, are also dealt with. Artists’ interviews and statements, important tips from the manual, remix examples from users, and a buyer’s guide to the various editions of Melodyne round off the series of tutorials.
Library – iTunes library support. Play lists and automated mixing options.
Deckadance 2 for Windows and Mac is available to purchase for $79 USD / $149 USD (DVS support). The update is free for existing customers.

Laptoprockers has announced the Spacehog Remix Contest, a contest in collaboration with Sonos and Blue Microphones.
On October 24, 1995, Spacehog released their debut album Resident Alien, which sold a million copies and spawned the hit single and video In the Meantime. By colliding glam-rock influences with a wall of distorted guitars and the stupendous daring of their lead vocals, Spacehog created their own genre of sound. The band’s second LP The Chinese Album (1998) featured a more ambitious symphonic sound in the spirit of British psychedelic rock, garnering critical acclaim. Moving away further from commercial viability with their 3rd album The Hogyssey, Spacehog disbanded in 2001. But they’re back!
With a new album on the way, Spacehog invite you to remix their 1996 hit: In The Meantime.
The band have teamed up with Sonos and Blue Microphones to fill the prize pool for this remix contest with some very nice gear worth over $1000.
We’ve posted the instrumental and vocal stems to In The Meantime on Soundcloud for you to download.
The contest closes May 16th, one month after the release date of their new album As It Is On Earth.
