Pro Tools Update Integrates ‘Mind-Blowing’ Melodyne Audio Pitch Editing


Avid has released Pro Tools version 2022.9, adding ARA Audio Random Access,  which makes it easy to edit audio pitches, using Melodyne 5.

Here’s an example of Melodyne 5 essential in action, in Pro Tools 2022.9:

With the new ARA integration, Avid Pro Tools and Melodyne are tightly meshed, so that Melodyne feels less like an external plug-in and more like an integral part of Pro Tools. Not only do clips and tracks open as Melodyne blobs with a single mouse click and follow every change made to the arrangement, but selection, zooming, scrolling as well as cycling, controlling the playback, and all kinds of other functions are also intelligently coordinated.

Melodyne’s algorithms also expand Pro Tools’ own possibilities in areas such as comping and time-stretching.

“Thanks to Celemony’s clever SDK, Melodyne integration within Pro Tools removes any hint of context switching and makes the workflow, not just streamlined, but natural,” says David Cotton, Lead Product Designer for Pro Tools at Avid. “The things Melodyne can do to audio, from subtle to outrageous, are absolutely mind-blowing.”

Pro Tools with ARA Tutorials

For the ARA integration of Melodyne, Pro Tools Version 2022.9 is required. Melodyne 5.3 is installed automatically with the software update 2022.9 for Pro Tools Artist, Studio, and Ultimate, and is available to all customers with active subscriptions and perpetual licenses with current Updates + Support plans.
