Tracktion Software has announced that they’ve integrated Celemony’s Audio Random Access (ARA) capability and are now bundling the (Celemony) Melodyne Essential Plug-in as part of the Tracktion 5 Music Production Software platform.
Tracktion is a multi-platform DAW which works with Linux, Mac or Windows operating systems.
Celemony’s Melodyne system tackles audio time and pitch editing by focusing on a musical approach to a previously highly technical process. Melodyne users can see not only where the music gets louder/softer but also where notes begin and end — and at what pitch they lie. Individual notes can be modified, thereby directly influencing the intonation, phrasing and dynamics.
By integrating the ARA capability, the Melodyne plug-in behaves as part of the Tracktion DAW platform, allowing the exchange of information about the audio file, tempo, pitch, rhythm and much more. Melodyne functions as if it were native to the Tracktion editing environment.
Melodyne Essential contains the basic functions for the editing of pitch and timing in melodic and rhythmic material – with the same sound quality and ease-of-use as the larger editions.
Pricing and Availability. Tracktion 5 with the Melodyne Essential bundle is available now and is $59 US for new users. As Melodyne Essential normally retails for $99 on its own, Tracktion is touting the pairing as “increas[ing] Tracktion’s value from insane to ludicrous.”
All current Tracktion 5 registered users will receive the Melodyne Essential bundle and can access this via their Tracktion 5 user account. For more on the ARA integration and the Melodyne Essential bundle with Tracktion 5, visit the Tracktion website.
