Melodyne 5 Studio update from Melodyne Studio 3 or 4 (Serial Nr + Download)

New vocal functions, Melodyne 5 created a sensation – winning a TEC Award into the bargain. These made many things better musically as well as simpler. A major step forward – for you, too, perhaps? Here we set out the powerful arguments for an update.

Sound arguments for an update

  • Better vocals, less time spent editing, more natural sound, because the Melodic Algorithm can now edit pitched and unpitched (noise) components separately (Sibilant Detection).
  • Perfect control, precision-targeted de-esser function with the tool for balancing the volume ratio of pitched to unpitched components.
  • Musically perfect intonation correction thanks to the improved weighting of pitch deviations.
  • Adapt recordings and samples swiftly to your own songs with the Chord Track and Chord Grid.
  • No knowledge of music theory required thanks to integrated chord recognition.
  • Per-note dynamic editing, even in polyphonic material with the Fade Tool and Leveling Macro.

New in Version 5.3

The update to Version 5.3 contains improvements and bug fixes, which is why we recommend it to all users. Moreover, Melodyne 5.3 is required for ARA integration into Pro Tools 2022.9.

  • Surround: In both ARA and Transfer modes, Melodyne can now also be used for the editing of tracks in the standard surround formats.
  • ARA in Pro Tools: Melodyne 5.3 comes with all the technical prerequisites for ARA integration into Pro Tools from Version 2022.9 upwards and thus makes a significantly improved workflow in Pro Tools possible.
  • Preferences: When Melodyne is employed for the first time as a plug-in, it loads the set of keyboard shortcuts corresponding to the DAW you are using.
