Melodyne Editor is a single-track full function audio editor that also works for Macintosh.
When working on polyphonic, monophonic, rhythmic, and any complex audio material, the Melodyne Editor can help you get the best results quicker. With the useful features of Melodyne Editor, all you will need is a few takes to get a good track down. Inconsistencies and minor mistakes found in the recording can then be edited and corrected.
The Melodyne Editor, grants you total control of your recorded audio. You can correct timing and intonation errors either manually or automatically by setting up the root key. You can adjust melodies, harmonies and rhythms. If the song suddenly needs to go a step higher and the session bassist already left, you can quickly transpose the recorded bass notes to proper scale. You can even change or manipulate pitch and adjust vibrato, volume and formant spectrum of each note. If you think you still need more editing power, the Melodyne Editor has a special feature called "DNA" or Direct Note Access, with this you can manipulate notes within a chord or harmony! Every aspect of the audio is within reach.
At the end of your editing work you can quantize the notes for a tighter rhythm and then export the notes to MIDI so you can hear them in proper context. The Melodyne Editor is a complete solution that will cater to audio editing needs.
There are three single track Melodyne products that are available, the Melodyne Editor is the flagship application with full features. The Melodyne Assistant is the younger brother which have most of the features except for the "DNA" - Direct Note Access feature of the Editor. The smallest of the bunch is the Melodyne Essential, which does not have full functionality but have just enough for single track vocal and instrument audio editing.
