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.

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.
