    Turn a mistake into the perfect take: Melodyne essential

    Award-winning audio editing

    Use the same equipment as Grammy winners. The Melodyne essential plug-in from Celemony contains the legendary tool for correcting recordings with absolute precision. The renowned algorithms give you complex editing solutions for audio recordings.

    Pitch editing
    Edit the pitch of out of tune vocal recordings on either the note or scale level using just your mouse. Melodyne is well-renowned for producing natural, clean sound while correcting compositions.

    Timing correction
    Adjust the timing of individual sounds and notes, such as percussion or even melodies, in any recording. The time stretching feature in Melodyne incorporates various musical factors while retaining organic sound sequences.

    Integrated ARA
    Celemony's ARA expands VST protocols in Samplitude Pro X3 to keep information exchange flowing between the plug-in and host. Plug-ins include access to tempo and pitch information and work even more efficiently.

    Audio to MIDI
    Double the vocal track using a software instrument, transform audio tracks for remixing in MIDI data or play back beatboxing and everything else you've made from the virtual Drum Machine.

    The new Audio to MIDI feature also includes brand new opportunities for showcasing your creative edge.

    The mixer. Remixed.
    New mixer setups have been optimized specially for different types of workflows and arrangements allowing you to keep everything in view, whether you're working on 10 tracks or 100. The design brings together the best of two worlds so you can combine the analog atmosphere with all the advantages of digital freedom.

    Tempo automation & BPM calculator
    Samplitude Pro X3 automatically calculates the tempo of an audio recording in the background. Combined with the project tempo map, it's a powerful tool for music production.

    When working with the tempo switch within the arrangement, the tempo of your audio recording automatically adjusts to the parameters set for your project.

    Be creative. And perfectly organized.

    Orange Vocoder ME by Zynaptiq
    Using the Orange Vocoder ME and the presets supplied, you can expand your repertoire of experimental sound with unique new sound collections.

    Comment function for tracks, objects and takes
    Make comments on adjustments in objects and tracks or evaluate single takes as they're being recorded. The Info Manager is your digital notepad and gives you detailed info right in the middle of an arrangement.

    New start dialog
    Adjust sample rate, bit depth and other project settings even before you start recording. This means you'll be ready to capture spontaneous ideas right as you think of them.

    New virtual instruments

    MP3/AAC audition plug-in
    The new preview plug-in enables you to preview results before export and guarantees outstanding sound for your mix. Work on pitch to do away with muffled sounds of compressed formats or factor in features from various encoders to create masters compatible with iTunes and other music platforms.

    Awesome they added this. Hopefully optimized to work better than the stand alone. I have the stand alone, Melodyne can become a real CPU hog fast.

    ill be purchasing it on studica when my computer build is done. Most likely at least, depending on if I jump on sequoia.

    Studica offers it at $300 usd for students and teachers, which is the same as the upgrade price for current pro x owners.

    i already have codec preview but the integrated melodyne is worth the cost of upgrade if you ask me.

    I'm gonna play around w pro x some then decided if I'm going to just upgrade where I am, go sequoia, or upgrade and grab prox3 so I can run it on up to 6 computers. Either way I don't want to get too far behind just because I would imagine the pro x 4 upgrade will cost more relatively speaking.

    I think I remember they incorperate some ozone features too. Perhaps the metering?

    Not trying to sell this software to anyone but because I use it, I just received this in my inbox today, so I thought it might interests others.

    Interesting, some of the Euro music out today is sure not my thing but what I find more interesting, how refreshing it is to see a women mastering. I think I have only heard of one other in my 40 years at this. (something about how men and women are more prone to some freq's and how the industry has become prodominatley male hearing when it comes to mixing)???

    At the bottom of this post there is a link to upgrade Pro X 3 for a substantial discount.

    newsletter-november-16-580x515.jpg
    In our latest interview we talk to mastering engineer Heba Kadry about working with artists such as Neon Indian. Based in "Timeless Mastering" studio in New York, Kadry has used Sequoia for mastering albums for a whole range of artists. In our full-length interview she gives us an insight into her workflow, describes her influences in terms of music production and explains why the object editor in Sequoia is one of her favorite tools to work with.

    At the Ask.Audio magazine, they’re also fans of Sequoia – here’s what they have to say about the DAW in their latest article:

    "After my time with Sequoia 13, there was no question this tool was worth every penny it costs."

    The new Samplitude Pro X3 Suite, too, is worth every penny. In addition to Melodyne essential, it includes the ARA interface, tempo automations for audio recordings and the full version of Sound Forge Pro 11.

    I emailed magix some time back and they offer an upgrade discount to sequoia for Sam users. I have to contact a specific person they don't publish it.

    I'm wondering if the Sam upgrade would be wasted money if I went sequoia this year.

    Annoy thoughts on that @audiokid ?

    I'm told but have no idea because all I have ever used is Sequoia right from the very beginning.

    If you don't need the broadcast/ video aspects, stay with Sam Pro x 3. But, you should look at it all carefully. Many ME, acoustic classical engineers use Sequoia. I have no idea how to advise you. I like the USB codemeter that comes with Sequoia. I just carry mine around with me. Pop it into any DAW with Sequoia and I am rolling.

    4 point editing is on Sequoia but I don't know if I would miss that in Samplitude.

    2 quick questions.

    What's 4 point editing?

    The USB stick, does that mean you can only use sequoia on one computer at a time w one license? Ie so would I need two full purchased licenses to have sequoia on the mix and capture daws?

    I've spent a lot of time researching sequoia it's defiantely something I could use I like the networking options it has, and Sam 'only' does 5.1, not 7.1 where I want to be.

    So it's more a matter of when not if. I'm just sussing out if pro X1 is enough to get be by in the meantime or the thenuograde is worth it.

    I'm not gonna rush since I can get the education version from studica for 289, full version.

    Gonna check out the forum over there, and email the rep to see what I'm looking for at an upgrade from Sam to sequoia, that should settle things.

    Also lol, I love how amazingly 80's those tracks are on heba's interveiw were. I've been into that type of thing the past few months. Lovin it!

    correct. I have 2 sticks. You could use Sam and Sequoia, You don't necessarily need both.

    Glad you liked her.

    Looks like I'm gonna have to use 1 sequoia only I can't justify two.

    I do love the idea that the mix and capture daws are identical. Less variables. But it's just something I'll have to get used to if I snag sequoia.

    Thanks for the vid I'll check it tomm, it's been a long day.

    Thanks man, I appreciate it.

    exactly. Its why I use both. Less chance of being fooled and more fun exchanging data etc.

    Pleasure.

    Pushed the button on the upgrade earlier this week but being ever cautious won't be installing it until the current crop of projects is finished...

    That's probably the only b i t c h I have about Magix, is that you need separate licenses for each computer.

    I think they should allow each user 2 licenses; or, at least, a seriously reduced rate for the second license... there are still people who work at studios away from their homes, or who travel with laptops that they use for production work while away from their studios, and who want to be able to work at any location; and having two licenses would allow you to work regardless of where you were at any given time.

    It would also make it much easier for those who use the 2-DAW workflow.

    I mean, to be fair, I do get their point; their hesitancy to allow multiple licenses, because of those people who might re-sell one of the licenses to someone else at a reduced price... still, I'm not convinced that Samp/Sequoia are popular on the list of pirated audio software. I don't know anyone who uses Samp or Sequoia who isn't a professional, and who doesn't have the ethics that true professionals have.

    Besides, I would think that if someone really wanted to crack a copy of Samp or Sequoia, there are probably torrent sites that already make that possible.

    IMHO of course.

    I agree Donny. There really should be a more fair way to license the software for both the client and software company.

    UVI softsynths, and VSL, both allow 3 'seats' for there software, which requires an ilok/Vienna key dongle.

    It's definately not out of the question to have a studio computer (or two or more), a laptop for wherever, and another one at home. I think it's good that some companies are allowing for this. Izotope has no restrictions as long as you own the machines you can install as many as you want.

    Magix allows 3 seats for Samplitude. So you can have it on three computers at once. You have to deactivate one of the licenses if you want to put it on another. Like if you get a new computer or work at a different studio for a project. That's more than fair.

    Sequoia is the same as avid as far as the single license. I did contact magix about a discount for sequoia for Samplitude users. They offer it for 2k instead of 3k which is still by no means cheap, but better than paying full price.

    I wonder if sequoia offers any discounts for sequoia owners. IMHO they should at least do the same as Samplitude or ideally a deeper discount.

    I just took the upgrade plunge today for Sam pro x 3. The audio to midi functionality seemed worth it along w melodyne.

    I'm still unclear if I got the right upgrade and support was unable to confirm today in time, somtjey said simply to purchase it and if it's not right, there's a 30 day no questions asked refund.

    I'm unsure if I bought an upgrade from prox3 to prox3 suite, or from my version (pro x suite) to pro x 3 suite.

    I'll call Monday.

    @Keith Johnson congrats on the upgrade! If you don't mind me asking what version did you have previously? It might help shed some light on my situation. Thanks.

    X2 Suite, originally from the 'normal' Pro X....so this time I'm just going up one version.

    Big fan of the full versions of things like AM-munition so when they offered me the original upgrade for essentially peanuts I leapt at it.

    Edited...wrong plugin name! It's been a long day!

    Sequoia, I carry a codemeter stick. Works great but I hear what you are saying. Samplitude is different. As Kyle mentioned

    I'm working on this, with them.;)

    cool. Looking forward to hearing about it!

    Awesome, more of us. How cool. :)
