I dedicate this blog to you, Stan.

Remember the sexiness of the Melodyne plug-in?  Well, prepare to be amazed, all you computer music geeks!  I thought this was an April Fool’s Day joke but it’s for real.

Wow, that’s totally freaking cool.
Have you actually used it? How easy is it in practice?

It is absolutely, totally freaking cool.

The version of the plug-in that has that kind of x-ray vision (or hearing) doesn’t come out until the Fall. The version I have only works with vocal or single-voiced instruments.

It’s pretty easy to use, although different than I expected (you have to “transfer” or record the track into the plug-in before you can work with it). Once you get used to it, though, it’s magical.

The song I posted called “Reverie” has horn parts. Todd had laid down three clarinet tracks for another song. I took them, changed the notes to match the key of the new song. I took one of the tracks, selected all the notes and then dragged them up/down (and they snap to notes that fit the key you choose), and then bounced the new notes to a new track.

When this new thing comes out, I can think of some guitar strumming that needs to be tuned properly. And there’s a whole wide world of sampling that this could open up.
