The video right below blew me away. I’ve been using Celemony’s Melodyne (first version) for some time and was already impressed by the possibilities it offers. Melodyne is a multitrack audio production suite in which you record tracks assigned from your audio sequencer. Once recorded you can easily play around with tone, pitch, amplitude and griding of the different individual notes. I mostly used it to harmonize backing vocals, auto-tune my dreadful singing and create funky baritone and soprano leads. Now they got this going way further. With the new version, Direct Note Access, Melodyne perfectly analyzes chords and separates them into single notes! Its like altering audio like you would MIDI. This huge step for audio production is just mind boggling. The way software is now capable of analyzing and altering audio waves really gets me thinking about how how much time it will take artificial intelligence to surpass humans on an artistic level. Of course we’ll deny their supremacy for a couple of decades, until…well, we will end up becoming their roadies.
