DNA (Direct Note Access) makes it possible to edit individual pitches within a polyphonic recording. This functionality is available in Melodyne 4 Editor and Melodyne 4 Studio. Use DNA to change notes within a chord, or edit pitch and rhythm within a live recording.
- [Voiceover] DNA, which stands for Direct Note Access,…is an incredibly powerful feature.…With this technology…we are able to edit individual monophonic pitches,…within a single polyphonic audio file.…Though this feature's been part of Melodyne…for several years now, I still think it's one of the most…groundbreaking audio accomplishments in recent memory.…Melodyne uses the detection algorithm…to determine the pitches and rhythms in your audio content,…and to distinguish between the fundamental frequencies…and the overtones for each of the various pitches.…
Using note assignment mode,…which we covered in the previous chapter,…we can fine-tune or change Melodyne's detection.…Let's check out DNA.…In this project I have a polyphonic track.…First I'm going to change the algorithm…to Polyphonic Sustain,…and I'm going to click Redetect,…and Melodyne's going to redetect the audio file.…Now that we're using one of the polyphonic detection types,…we can see the individual notes and rhythms…of the parts in this recording.…
