Fixing audio is a serious challenge, however I love to work with voice-overs, soundtracks and effects.
Melodyne has become a tool which is used by a large number of professional record producers worldwide to tune and manipulate audio signals, typically a singer’s vocals. Melodyne also has facilities for time-stretching, rebuilding melodies.
Editing pitch, scales and tunings
Melodyne distinguishes between three different types of pitch parameter for each note: the pitch center, the pitch modulation (or ‘vibrato’) and the pitch drift. And it allows you to work with whatever scales and tunings you like, including exotic or experimental ones.
Editing timing and tempo
Each note can be moved forwards or backwards in time, lengthened or shortened, or quantized using the grid of your choice. Detailed editing is even possible of the timing within each note. Melodyne comes with powerful algorithms for the detection and editing of tempo. Taken together with the timing tools and macros, these offer you complete control over all temporal aspects of your recordings.
Editing amplitude and Shape the sound
You can make notes louder or quieter simply by dragging with the Amplitude Tool. Double-clicking on notes with this tool successively mutes and unmutes them. The Sound Editor and Formant Tool provide unique ways of optimizing the timbre and achieving spectacular tone colors and effects.
