Join me as we do a walk through using Melodyne. I created this course for music producers, engineers, and artists who already have some experience with recording and mixing, but are new to using the Melodyne software.
Melodyne is a very powerful application that lets users manipulate the pitch, vibrato, timing, envelopes, and formants of audio in an intuitive interface that is similar to working with MIDI. I have heard it referred to as "the magic plugin."
Many people get frustrated early on when trying to learn Melodyne because it is so different from any other audio software available. There is a learning curve that you need to overcome before you will be comfortable using Melodyne. And that is what this course is designed for.
I will show you how to use Melodyne's interface, tools, editor views, and macros. Then apply Melodyne to tuning vocals in a mixing scenario, and finally, use this software in less conventional ways. Melodyne goes well beyond just pitch-correcting vocals, despite what many people believe.
So please join me in this course and let's see the power you can unleash in your own music!
