Now let's look at the remaining preferences in the Other Preferences tab. Here you can select your language. So if you wanted to work in French, you can change that Language setting and restart the application and all of your menus and displays will show up in French. We'll keep ours in English. You can also set the number of undo levels available in Melodyne. This can go up to 500 levels, but just keep in mind that the more levels of undo the more RAM your system requires. Some of the other preferences on the other page include Monitor Note Pitch on Editing which when selected allows you to hear the note every time you grab or move it with the Pitch tool.
You can also choose to Always use maximum processing quality by selecting that check box, and you can also Process Stereo Channels Separately. If you'd prefer to see a separate left and right for a stereo channel rather than a combined stereo channel, you can enable this preference. With Consider Original Scale Notes on Scale Snap unselected, if you change the melody note to a different key, Melodyne will snap the notes to the nearest pitch despite the original scale contained by the audio material. But if you do have this preference enabled, instead Melodyne will listen to the original scale notes associated with your original material, and that will override the scale notes of your new key.
With the Make Group on Trill or Slide Separation preference enabled, Melodyne will automatically make compound notes from the separated notes within a trill or slide. This can make trills or slides a little easier to work with. The next preference allows you to double-click any file in the Melody Manager and have it open directly in the MDD Editor. We're not covering the Melody Manager in this course, but feel free to play around with it and check out what it does. The next preference allows Melodyne to automatically update the MDD files every time we save our arrangement, and the preference below that allows us to Auto-Update MDDs in the Melody Manager so that the Melody Manager contains the latest MDDs automatically.
Last, Enable Spot to Pro Tools allows Melodyne to export audio files with a user timestamp that can be read by Pro Tools to allow sample accurate location of your exported audio back into Pro Tools. Again, these preferences will differ in Melodyne singletrack, and we'll take a look at those settings in a later chapter.
