The smaller Melodyne editions – editor, assistant and essential – have also been enhanced.
With the full set of tools, you can edit your notes in more detail, with greater musical sensitivity.

You can also use Melodyne for polyphonic recordings.
Thanks to Celemony’s patented DNA Direct Note Access technology, with Melodyne 4 you can edit not only vocals and monophonic instruments but also polyphonic ones like pianos and guitars – right down to the individual notes within chords. Turn major into minor, a quiet third into a loud one, chords into arpeggios. Explore hitherto unknown avenues for creativity.
Melodyne 4’s new tempo algorithms detect tempos, time signatures and any changes in tempo more accurately than ever before.
Melodyne 4 tracks precisely the tempo of a live recording, with all its human inconstancy. The ensuing click keeps time with the musicians, not the other way around. And still, you enjoy all the practical benefits of a beat-based grid when working in your DAW.
Furthermore, you can curb excessive wandering in tempo without ironing-out the minor fluctuations that lend charm to a live performance. You can also synchronize recordings with quite different tempos or variations in tempo.
Melodyne 4 makes working with tempo dead simple, letting you work with greater freedom, in new ways.
The ability to export Melodyne notes as MIDI offers a wealth of creative and practical possibilities.
Replace or double vocal lines in your DAW with synthesizers, acoustic drums with electronic sounds, or guitars with pad sounds. Use the grooves of your acoustic drums on MIDI tracks or take advantage of your DAW’s notation functions. Combining audio and MIDI files offers numerous creative possibilities.
Melodyne 4 allows you to work with whatever scales and tunings you like, including exotic or experimental ones.
Unusual scale structures and irregular tuning are often important musical parameters that ought not to be ironed out. For this reason, Melodyne 4 supports every conceivable scale or tuning system, allowing you to handle the nuances of each musical genre with sensitivity.
You can also define and edit scales and tuning systems, as well as analyze those found in existing audio material.
Melodyne 4’s just intonation adds transparency and penetration to the sound.
