- Hi, I'm Skye Lewin and welcome to Melodyne Studio Essential Training. In this course we'll look at the different variations of Melodyne and how to use them to alter pitch and time in a recorded musical performance. We'll start by setting up a session and then familiarizing ourselves with the software and how to navigate within it. Then we'll see how to use the many tools in Melodyne including the Edit Pitch tool and Move Notes tool to alter the pitch and rhythm of a monophonic performance and we'll see how to use the revolutionary Direct Note Access, or DNA, to edit a polyphonic pitched recording.

(guitar strums) We'll walk through a real world example of editing a vocal performance with Melodyne and we'll explore the various ways that you can use Melodyne in conjunction with your DA. We'll also see how we can use MIDI to edit and perform a recorded vocal as well as how to use an audio recording to send MIDI that can trigger an instrument or sound module. Last, we'll look at exporting our work. We'll be covering all of these features plus we'll look at several different workflows and techniques so that you can choose which one best suits your needs.

Now, let's get started with Melodyne Studio Essential Training.
