The Detection settings in Melodyne allow you to auto-detect the pitches of each audio file or region on import. So on the Detection settings page, we can specify which detection preset to use by default. Melodic is best suited for a vocal or audio content that contains a single note melodic melody. The Percussive setting is good for drums or anything that's more rhythmic based and not so much pitch based, and Polyphonic is good for multiple notes at the same time. So you would want to use polyphonic to detect a guitar or any audio that contains harmony.
In Melodyne Studio, we can't actually edit polyphonic material, but we can in Melodyne Editor also known as Melodyne Singletrack, with Direct Note Access or DNA technology which we'll look at shortly. Under the Options menu, we can choose to Add, Remove, Edit, Import or Export additional detection presets. If we choose to add a new parameter set, we can name it, specify the highest and lowest note, separation sensitivity. Given all of the settings provided by Melodyne, we can create our own custom parameter set that's custom tailored to work with a specific piece of audio or a specific workflow.
Once you've created one that you're happy with, you can actually export it, and then import it later on another system if you want to.
