  • Melodyne’s Main Tool for editing pitch and timing
  • macros for optimizing intonation, timing quantization, and leveling

Even if you wish to do nothing more than make minor corrections to your vocals from time to time, there’s no need to dispense with Melodyne. Because Melodyne essential – besides being extremely easy to use – offers the same Grammy Award-winning sound quality as the larger editions.

In addition to the features listed above, Melodyne essential offers:

All the algorithms except DNA: This means you can edit monophonic vocal and instrumental tracks, as well as drums, and even entire mixes (by time-stretching or transposing them, for instance). All that’s missing is the ability to edit individual notes played by polyphonic instruments such as the piano or guitar.

Melodyne’s Main Tool: With the Main Tool, you can edit each note’s pitch, timing, and duration as well as note separations. This – combined with the macros for pitch, timing, and dynamics – allows you to make simple improvements fast, without having to deal with the more advanced functions.

In a nutshell: Melodyne essential is the easy-access point of entry to Melodyne’s unique editing environment – with the option of upgrading to a larger edition at any time, for only the difference in the price of the two editions.
