In this course, author Skye Lewin explores how to harness the power of the leading pitch correction software, Melodyne. The course begins with the installation and setup process, and includes recommendations on choosing the best workflow and preference settings for your project. The lessons also demonstrate how to get audio into Melodyne, whether importing existing files or recording new tracks; how to arrange a new session; and how to edit the audio and export the corrected tracks.
Before we start working, we want to set the Tempo and Meter for our session. Depending on the project, you may also want to set the Tone Scale. We've already set the Tempo, but let's look at doing it again. We're going to open our Transport bar, and we can choose the Tempo by double-clicking and entering the number here. Likewise, we can set the Meter for our project by setting the number of beats per bar and the value of those beats. In this case, our Tempo is 77 and the value of our tempo is 4/4 time. One other setting that you may or may not always use is the Tone Scale.
Under the Window menu, you can select the Tone Scale. You can also set a shortcut for this if you find it that you use it frequently, and we'll talk about how to do that later. Here, you can choose the type of scale you're working with, whether it's major or minor or any of the various modes. You can also choose the tonal center or the tonic of your key. So if you know your song is in G, you can assign that the key is G, if you know it's Major or Minor, you can assign Major or Minor. You can also further control the type of tuning that's used within your scale, if you wanted to use Equal Temperament, Pythagorean, MeanTone, Pure Ratio or even customize it even further.
Usually, we are not going to need to go that far in depth, but this can be very useful if you know that the specific song you're working on only contains certain notes or perhaps is at a certain type of tone scale. You can still work without setting the Tempo, Meter, and Scale, but setting them can improve your ability to make changes because it gives you a visual reference as you work.
