Munich, Germany (February 25, 2005)–Celemony Software GmbH has begun shipping Version 2.6 of its audio software, Melodyne. The emphasis is upon numerous improvements in the handling of keys and scales, enhanced compatibility with Apple Logic 7 and DP4.5 and better pitch recognition. Registered Melodyne users can now download the update free of charge from Celemony’s website.
Melodyne 2.6 is notable for the provision of more powerful functions for the handling of keys and scales as well as the editing of diatonic and chromatic notes, with more musical results from both correction and transposition operations. Version 2.6 distinguishes between notes belonging to the current key or mode and notes foreign to it (such as chromatic passing notes) so that the musical content of the phrase is not altered when the melody is transposed or the mode changed.
