Even if you wish to do nothing more than make minor corrections to your vocals from time to time, it offers the same Grammy Award-winning sound quality as the larger editions.
In addition to the features listed above, Melodyne Essential offers:
All the algorithms except DNA: This means you can edit monophonic vocal and instrumental tracks, as well as drums, and even entire mixes (by time-stretching or transposing them, for instance). All that’s missing is the ability to edit individual notes played by polyphonic instruments such as the piano or guitar.
Melodyne’s Main Tool: With the Main Tool, you can edit each note’s pitch, timing and duration as well as note separations. This – combined with the macros for pitch, timing and dynamics – allows you to make simple improvements fast, without having to deal with the more advanced functions.
In a nutshell: Melodyne essential is the easy-access point of entry to Melodyne’s unique editing environment – with the option of upgrading to a larger edition at any time, for only the difference in the price of the two editions.
