Join Skye Lewin for an in-depth discussion in this video A look at note blobs, part of Melodyne Studio Essential Training.
In Melodyne the note blobs is the equivalent of a region's waveform. The note blob displays all of the information we'll need in order to edit the pitch and the rhythm of our audio. Let's take a look at the note blob. In the Arrange window we can see the waveform of our instrumental track, if we double-click on it to open the Editor window, we can see another waveform this shows note blobs for each of the auto-detected rhythm sections of this instrumental track. Let's close this, zoom a little later in the track, and look at our lead vocal in the Editor window.
Here we can see the note blob showing the pitch of each note within our melody. One thing that we'll see as we move forward in this chapter is that the data displayed on top of the note blob will change depending on which tool is selected. For example, if we select the Edit Pitch tool, we can see the Pitch Curve will be shown. However, if we're using a different tool we can still choose to always show the pitch curve by enabling that option in the View menu. So, for example, if we select our Formant tool we can see the formant information displayed. If we select our Amplitude tool, we see the amplitude information which is always displayed because it is represented by the height or fatness of each blob.
Choosing our Move Notes tool shows us another overlay and choosing our Note Separation tool shows us the note separations. And again the note separations can always be shown by selecting Always Show Note Separations. In this case they will be shown no matter what tool we have selected. So you can see that note blob is a very versatile information display.
