Join Skye Lewin for an in-depth discussion in this video Using the exercise files, part of Melodyne Studio Essential Training.
If you're a Premium member of the lynda.com online training library, or if you're watching this tutorial on a DVD -ROM, you have access to the exercise files used throughout this title. As we move forward in this course, we'll be using this song Say Yes from the vocalist Eoka, who is an underground Sun recording artist. Eoka has allowed me to use the elements from her song Say Yes in this course, and I'd like to point out that the lead vocal that we're going to be playing with is actually not her performance. I've butchered it and essentially made it sound out of tune so that we have something a little bit better to work with in this course.
You can hear Eoka's actual performance by checking out the song on iTunes. Let's open our exercise files folder, and here we can see the different elements that we'll be using in this course. From the top to bottom, we have our Background Vocals, which contains 6 Background Vocal parts. Below that we have our Instrumental Elements, which contain a section of the Intro Piano and the Verse 1 Acoustic Guitar track. We'll be using these when we look at DNA or Direct Note Access in Melodyne Editor, also known as Melodyne Singletrack. The Lower Instrument Elements folder we have the Say Yes_Instrumental, which is a stereo instrumental of the entire song, essentially everything except the vocals, and below that we have the Lead Vocal_Example file, which is my altered, butchered performance so that we have something to clean up.
Last, in our Sessions folder, we have an example session file that has all the audio tracks already imported. If you are a Monthly number or Annual member of lynda.com, you don't have access to the exercise files, but you can follow along from scratch with your own assets.
