SEATTLE, WA (September 8, 2014) – Tracktion Software Corporation (TSC) has announced the integration of Celemony’s Audio Random Access (ARA) capability and the bundling of the Melodyne Essential Plug-in (a $99 value) for the Tracktion 5 Music Production Software platform. Melodyne is the world’s leading time and pitch correction software. This bundle significantly adds to the already considerable value that Tracktion 5 represents.
“We’re extremely pleased to be able to offer our users such a powerful upgrade,” exclaimed TSC’s James Woodburn. “We’re thankful for the close cooperation Celemony have provided during the ARA integration process. We’ve always admired the power and intuitive operation of the Melodyne plug-in and find it an ideal fit for the Tracktion 5 community.
Celemony’s Grammy™ Award winning Melodyne system revolutionized the task of audio time and pitch editing by focusing on a musical approach to a previously highly technical process. With Melodyne, users can see where the music gets louder or quieter but also where notes begin and end and at what pitch they lie. Each note can be easily modified and thereby influence the intonation, phrasing and dynamics directly. This is possible not only with vocals and monophonic instruments but with polyphonic instruments such as pianos and guitars as well.
By integrating the ARA capability, the Melodyne plug-in behaves as part of the Tracktion platform, allowing the exchange of information about the audio file, tempo, pitch, rhythm and much more. Melodyne functions as if it were native to Tracktion’s editing environment.
All Tracktion 5 registered users will receive the Melodyne Essential bundle. Melodyne Essential contains the basic functions for the editing of pitch and timing in melodic and rhythmic material – with the same sound quality and ease-of-use as the larger editions. Upgrading to those larger editions could not be easier and no separate installation is required. For more on the ARA integration and the Melodyne Essential bundle, visit www.tracktion.com/blog/
