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.

As a result, Melodyne is even more musical, allows you to go even deeper when editing your material, and is even more widely compatible than ever before.

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 introduces Studio One 2

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.

Universal Audio announces UAD-2 Satellite DUO and QUAD Firewire DSP Accelerator Packages

Universal Audio has announced the impending release of UAD-2 Satellite DUO and QUAD Firewire DSP Accelerator Packages.

UAD-2 Satellite

As the newest members of UA’s UAD-2 Powered Plug-Ins platform, the UAD-2 Satellite family combines DSP acceleration with the plug-and-play simplicity of Firewire 800/400 – perfect for modern, Intel-based iMacs and MacBook Pros.

UAD-2 SatelliteThe UAD-2 Satellite puts the entire UAD Powered Plug-Ins library within easy reach of Firewire 800 and 400-equipped computers; no PCIe card installation required. In developing these UAD plug-ins, UA’s DSP engineers work with leading hardware manufacturers – including Roland, Neve, Studer, dbx, Solid State Logic, Lexicon, Manley, Empirical Labs, Trident, SPL, EMT and more – using their exact schematics, golden units, and experienced ears. This gives computer-based musicians and engineers the warmth and harmonics of classic analog recordings, wherever they mix.

Available in DUO or QUAD processor format (with either two or four Analog Devices SHARC processors, respectively), UAD-2 Satellite packages provide a processing “boost” for digital audio workstations, and include a selection of classic analog emulation plug-ins, right out of the box.

Notable UAD-2 Satellite features include:

  • Access the UAD Powered Plug-Ins library on select Firewire 800 and 400 equipped computers.
  • Compatible with a wide range of modern Intel-based iMacs and MacBook Pros.
  • Run larger mixes in Pro Tools, Logic, Cubase, Nuendo, Performer and more – without taxing host computer CPU.
  • 5 models to choose from:
    • DUO (Core).
    • DUO Flexi (w/ $500 Plug-In Voucher).
    • QUAD (Core).
    • QUAD Flexi (w/ $500 Plug-In Voucher).
    • QUAD Omni v5.7 (w/ 50 UAD plug-ins).

Propellerhead Software updates Record to v1.5.1 and Reason to v5.0.1

Related: , , , , , , , , Posted in news on Dec 03, 2010 - comment 0 comments
Propellerhead Software Record/Reason

Propellerhead Software has released updates for Record and Reason, its music production applications for Windows and Mac.

We are happy to announce the immediate release of Record 1.5.1 and Reason 5.0.1 — free maintenance updates that resolve several minor issues in Reason and Record.

Changes in Record v1.5.1 / Reason v5.0.1

  • Record
    • CodeMeter has been updated to version 4.20b. This version provides better handling of various installation issues.
    • The MClass Mastering Suite Combinator appeared on the Create menu when the Japanese language was selected in Record. It has been removed (the way to use mastering combi patches in Record is to load them as Master Insert FX).
    • The EQ, Filter and Input Gain settings in the main mixer were not chased properly. This could cause clicks or slight fades in the beginning of bounced or played back tracks.
    • There was an audible hiccup (a small pause in the audio) whenever an effect (Wah or Compressor) was switched on or off on a Line 6 Amp device. The Line 6 components have been updated to fix this.
    • An interpolation issue could cause a very slight loss of high frequency content when processing audio in Neptune.
    • The size of Kong devices in the Record rack navigator was slightly incorrect.
    • In rare cases users had to authenticate twice when starting Record.
    • Normalize Clip did not work on clips with extremely long audio recordings.
  • Reason & Record
    • The handling of bad sound drivers has been improved, lessening the risk of a crash due to faulty drivers.
    • Added Remote support for M-Audio Oxygen 88.
    • Added localized help and documentation in German, Japanese and French. Note: The localized help and documentation files are automatically included when Reason or Record are installed from the DVD. When downloading Reason or Record, you need to download and install localized help and documentation separately.
    • During certain circumstances, if a MIDI control surface was locked to a device and the user deleted any device from that song, the program could crash. This would happen if there was another song open and that song was playing back in the background.
    • The “Arpeggio Notes to Track” function on the RPG-8 could cause the program to crash if some of the RPG-8 parameters had been automated.
    • Saving a patch could in rare cases cause the program to crash. This happened if the user loaded a patch from a folder containing a huge number of patches, then moved the patch file to another folder and finally attempted to resave the patch by Alt-clicking the Save Patch button on the device.
    • In some cases, after copying and pasting a sample-based device from one song to another, the pasted device could refer to the wrong samples if the samples were self-contained.
    • Cable drawing has been slightly improved.
    • Thor’s step sequencer in random mode triggered two voices. This could happen when the “Step” run mode was selected and the direction was set to “Random”.
    • The program will occasionally check the available hard disk space. On some systems, these checks could make the user interface temporarily unresponsive.
    • Duplicating devices a large number of times could cause a graphical bug in the rack.
    • A number of localized (translated) text strings were cut off.
    • Voice handling for the NN-XT has been optimized slightly.
    • Dr. OctoRex slice numbers were not shown correctly in Edit mode when using the application in German.
    • If a song used SoundFonts under Windows Vista or Windows 7, the program could store the wrong path to the referenced samples. As a result, there would be missing sounds next time the song was opened.
    • Switching from MIDI sync to internal sync could result in an “Unknown Exception” alert.
    • The program could become very unresponsive when working with songs with a large number of self-contained samples.
    • Songs or combi patches could load with incorrect settings. This happened if a Combi rotary or button had been programmed to control a certain device parameter, and this parameter had been changed “manually” so that its state conflicted with the Combi rotary/button. After saving and loading, the setting of the device parameter was reset to match the Combi settings.
    • When stopping after recording in ReWire mode, the program could freeze for a few seconds.
    • Updated some Japanese translations.
    • The program could assert when changing to virtual MIDI input settings.
    • Kong’s Nurse Rex in Slice Trig mode within a Mute Group would not mute the voice when another pad was triggered.
    • A crash could be caused by dragging one or more half width devices and hovering over a Disk Channel device that doesn’t show inserts.
    • The function of bouncing several audio clips to new samples or to a new recording could take longer than expected.
    • The remote override mode was not completely blocked while the program tried to quit.
    • Muted audio clips in Blocks while adjusting the Block Clip offset could look a bit peculiar.
    • Sample Editor now handles samples with a sampling frequency below 8000 HZ correctly.
    • Names of Mix Channels could become blank in certain cases.
    • Bug in the Mix/Disk-channel, which could occur whenever a device was added or removed in the combi of a channel device (insert effects). This bug might show itself by some short clicking sound, artifact or short freeze when adding or removing devices in a channel device. The Combinator was not affected, and also not the master section.
    • There was a bug when the user tried to move the notes that were being recorded either by scaling the tempo in the tool window or nudging them with Ctrl-left/right.
    • Handling of ReGrooved blocks has been improved.
    • NN-Nano now uses High Quality Interpolation when pitching samples.
    • Converting pattern automation to notes disregarded pattern offsets incorrectly.
    • Automation of aftertouch, expression and breath are now smoothed in Thor.
  • ReFill Packer
    • ReFill Packer will now preserve tempo maps in AIFF and WAV files.
    • The previous version of ReFill Packer didn’t handle files with leading and trailing spaces in their names properly.
    • Better handling of how ReFill Packer works when invoked using non privileged accounts.
