I was watching videos and reading comments over at Create Digital Music concerning the beta release of Melodyne’s amazing new Direct Note Access feature. The one thing this software guarantees is we will be getting a new music genre soon. With every technological pro-audio feature jump we have seen artists create something new. Glitch and mashups are quick recent examples but something about Direct Note Access makes me think “this is major”. With enough stare at the computer screen time producers with well trained ears will be able to pull Hendrix guitar lines from a song and pair it with Kurt Cobain singing… singing “We are the World”. Ok maybe that’s not exactly possible but that’s going to be the obvious first goal with people who have the time and skill to try. I’m hoping we are going to get something even more off the wall, more new sounding. Music needs something new sounding to bring back a little shine (iTunes LP isn’t it).
Melodyne editor is the first Celemony product to offer the revolutionary Direct Note Access technology. This makes possible what had previously been considered impossible: access to individual notes in polyphonic audio material. Correct wrong notes in a piano recording; change the chords in a guitar accompaniment after the recording is over; refashion a sample lick. Melodyne editor lets you do things of which, until now, you could only dream. – www.celemony.com
