Transferring Audio into Melodyne5:30
Learn about the basic preferences and how to set where the files used by Melodyne will be placed. Discover the basic properties of each of the available algorithms.
Basic Pitch Editing4:48
Learn how to transpose individual note pitches either chromatically or conforming to the detected scale, while maintaining their natural offsets; and see how to quantize notes to the perfect tuning of their intended pitches.
Pitch Drift & Pitch Modulation4:10
The pitch drift tool is used to correct the intonation of a notes pitch over time, and how the pitch modulation tool is used to edit vibrato. Also, see how to quantize pitch and pitch modulation in order to create the T-Pain, or Cher, vocal effect.
Getting Around the GUI5:00
Discover various ways of controlling playback from within the Melodyne plug-in, scrub through blobs, zoom and scroll the display, and work with cycle ranges.
Working with the Timing Tool4:56
The Timing Tool is used to stretch, compress, move, and quantize single or multiple blob selections. Also, learn how to separate adjacent notes so they can move independently, and see how to add a random deviation to humanize the timing.
Time Handle & Attack Speed Tools4:14
Learn to use the Attack Speed Tool to either sharpen or make duller the attack portion of notes, and how the Time Handle Tool is used to stretch or compress areas within a single blob. Also see how to use the Note Separation Tool to split notes into multiple blobs, so their pitch (or timing) envelopes can be altered separately.
Note Separation, Formant, Amplitude, & Timing Tool in Action7:02
Eli demonstrates how these various tools are used to clean up a guitar solo.
The Correct Pitch Macro5:13
See how this tool is used to make broad changes on basic tuning and pitch drift on multiple notes together.
The Quantize Time Macro4:41
Explore the nuanced time correction possibilities available with the quantize time macro, See how multiple notes are moved and automatically trimmed in relation to the chosen grid value.
Learn methods of selecting notes contiguously, non contiguously, based on pitch, octave, position in time, using the mouse, contextual menus, and key commands.
Getting Started with Note Detection Mode5:11
See how this mode is used to tweak the detection of overtones and fundamental tones, limit the vertical range of detection, and control the amount of energy split between fundamental tones and overtones.
Note Detection & Note Separations5:32
Discover how the various note separation tools and workflows in note detection mode are used to work with and edit detected note start and end points.
Working with the Algorithm Inspector5:02
Eli demonstrates how to optimize and tweak the note detection using the various algorithm inspector controls.
Polyphonic Note Editing3:54
See how chords are quantized while the notes maintain their relative distance to each other. Learn how the pitch of individual notes within a chord are changed using Melodynes Direct Note Access.
Copy & Paste7:30
Learn how to use the copy and paste functions to repeat polyphonic phrases, create vocal doubling effects, and generate harmonies.
Getting to Know the Pitch Grid & Scale Functions5:44
This video covers the pitch grids various snap and display options. Learn how to edit key and scale info, and have notes automatically conform to changes.
Master Tuning & The Scale Window5:10
Learn how to change the master tuning used by Melodyne, and see how to access and use exotic alternate scales.
Working with Drums6:16
Explore some ideas on how to add spice to a drum loop analyzed using Melodynes Percussive algorithm.
Audio to MIDI in Action5:28
Three ways to creatively use Melodynes Audio to MIDI export function.
In this in-depth video tutorial series computer music guru Eli Krantzberg shows you how Celemony Melodyne 4 gives you complete control over the pitch and timing of every track in your project. Youll see how you can use Melodyne both surgically and creatively, on individual tracks and even entire songs!
After a quick introduction, Eli starts by demonstrating how you transfer your audio into Melodyne so you can edit your pitch and timing in the Melodyne editor. Youll then learn Pitch Editing including how to Transpose and Quantize Notes and how to Correct Pitch Drift and Intonation Errors over time.
Eli now reveals the best way to get around the Melodyne 4 GUI and discusses the deep timing features of Melodyne 4, including the Timing Tool, Time Handle, and Attack Speed Tools, as well as demonstrating the important essentials of Note Separation. The Correction Tools are covered next, starting with the Correct Pitch Macro which makes broad changes, and the Quantize Time Macro which does the same for time.
Selection and Detection are up next, and Eli shows you the best ways to use Melodynes Selection Options for selecting notes, and then how Note Detection and Separation work. He also explains how to use the Algorithm Inspector to optimize note detection for better editing and correction.
With all that covered, Eli turns to Polyphonic Note Editing, demonstrating how to quantize full chords using Melodynes unique Direct Note Access. Global features and parameters such as Cut and Paste, the Pitch Grid, Scale functions, Master Tuning, and the Scale Window are then looked at in detail.
Eli ends the series with a video on creative ways to use Melodyne and add spice to a drum loop using Melodynes Percussive algorithm as well as using Melodynes Audio to MIDI export function.

Picked up a few tips
I've used earlier versions of Melodyn, but after upgrading to editor 4, I've learned that Groove3 training is worth every penny. Your training, ( I own all of your Izotope training), has helped we with creating harmonies in one track; I always thought that harmonies required multiple tracks. Several other pearls were also discovered
