WOW: Melodyne Direct Note Access
Once in a while a product comes along that really takes things to another dimension - take the Celemony Melodyne - that put audio into the world of grid editing, enabling incredibly powerful manipulation of recorded audio.
Well be prepared to have you mind blown once again. Today Melodyne previewed the their Direct Note Access. Essentially, they have made the impossible possible. Take a stereo (or mono) track of polyphonic audio - piano, string quartet or whatever and then through some kind of wizardry, explode this into the separate individual notes and edit to taste as you would with monophonic audio within Melodyne. Yes you heard right.
It's kind of hard to explain, watch the video - it's a real doodie. Outside of a keynote speech by Steve Jobs, you rarely hear the crowd cheer as software features are unveiled....
Available later this year as part of the Melodyne 2.0 update (in plug-in form first).
