Celemony Direct Note Access (DNA): Insane Melodyne

January 2, 2009

Celemony Direct Note Access

Celemony Melodyne Direct Note Access (DNA) Technology News: Direct Note Access is a technology that makes the impossible possible: for the first time in audio recording history you can identify and edit individual notes within polyphonic audio material.

This is the kind of software that will change the way we make music as we know it! Produers across the world will want this as part of their toolkit the minute they see it. It will become as used as compressors, as time efficiant as digital recording,  and as fun as as the  ‘Cher’ effect we now know to be all over every vocal take in the Top 10

If the auto-tune changed the way we record vocals. This plug will change the way we have to record ANYTHING.  It is truly a unique system and will be the most labour saving device since the toaster (sic)

I have every belief ANY Digital audio editor should have this system now!

Celemony DNA: Direct Note Access

Celemony say that once DNA has hit the market, studio engineers and producers will be able to think the same way about piano takes, for example, as they do currently with vocal recordings, where a slight blemish can be ‘fixed’ at a later date. This could change the way studio sessions run, and reduce the requirement for overdubbing or re-recording entire takes after minor player errors.

But it’s not just achieving perfect takes that Direct Note Access is capable of. Using the pitch-shifting and time-stretching capabilities to their extremes, some fairly radical effects can be created. But also, melodic material can be transposed, so if you fancy changing a guitar solo from major to minor, you can do so with just a few mouse-clicks.

Celemony are expecting that sample-library users will embrace the technology to turn loops that were previously only playable in the key that they were recorded in into templates that can be transposed to suit the project they’re working on.

If you have watched the video, we’re pretty sure that Melodyne with Direct Note Access has filled you with enthusiasm and will render your music-making simpler, more inventive and more productive. How many products actually do this?

The first Melodyne product with Direct Note Access will be Version 2 of Melodyne plugin (shipping early 2009). In the course of time, Direct Note Access will then be integrated into all the products in the Melodyne product family. The most comprehensive Direct Note Access functionality will be offered by Melodyne studio.

Celemony Melodyne 3

Melodyne 3 offers a new algorithm that allows any type of audio material to profit from Melodyne’s unique editing functions and sound quality; in other words, Melodyne is no longer limited to the editing of melodies but can handle homophonic and polyphonic textures. Melodyne 3 also offers fully automatic analysis of the audio material, powerful macros for the correction…
