There’s a new product coming out that may re-shape the way we think of music. Melodyne Editor, a Direct Note Access (DNA) program offered by Celemony, is the first of it’s kind. You can analyze a piece of music and change any note in polyphonic material.
Watching this software in action borders on spooky. Bassist Jeff Schmidt has posted a video running one of his solo pieces, “Fury,” through Melodyne Editor and shows some of the power behind this program. You can do anything you want to a single note in a composition: change the volume, change the pitch, delete it completely, it’s incredibly flexible.
Melodyne is currently in public beta and is scheduled to be released in November. You can check out more on the Melodyne Editor from Celemony’s web site.
