Join Skye Lewin for an in-depth discussion in this video Importing audio for the stand-alone workflow, part of Melodyne Studio Essential Training.
In this chapter, we'll get started by importing audio into Melodyne Studio. Now before we get to this point in your workflow, you will have already prepared and exported the audio files that you want to use in Melodyne. For example, if you had three audio tracks that you wanted to import into Melodyne, you would have already exported those into the proper File Type, with the proper Bit-Depth and the proper Sample Rate for using Melodyne. Now because you're using Melodyne as a stand-alone editor to work with your existing project from your DAW, what you really want to do is make Melodyne settings mirror the settings from your DAW.
So, if you're working on a session that's 24-bit and 48 kHz, you're going to want to make Melodyne mirror that by setting it to 24-bits and 48 kHz as we did earlier. So, now let's look at how we would import audio for our Standalone Workflow. So, we're going to go up to the File menu, we're going to choose Import Audio file, you can also use the key command, Shift+Command+O on a Mac, or Shift+Ctrl+O on Windows. So now let's select the couple of tracks to import.
First let's select our instrumental and our lead vocal example. So our instrumental is a stereo file, which is an instrumental that includes our drums and our bass, and basically all of the instrumental elements of the song that we'll be working with. And the lead vocal example is our example lead vocal that we'll be using in this course. So, you can select multiple files at a time by holding the Shift key and selecting them both, and let's Open, so when you importing an audio file into Melodyne, the pitch detection will occur on import using whichever preset is selected in your preferences, and we'll get into more detail on that in a later video, but for now, we're going to leave it at the default preference, and we're going to let it detect pitch as the session imports the audio files.
