In this in-depth video tutorial series, Melodyne expert Eli Krantzberg goes beyond Melodyne 4 Explained and dives deeper into Melodyne 4's power features, showing you how to unleash the full creative potential of this "must have" pitch and time manipulation tool.

Eli starts off with multi-track editing in Melodyne, including an overview of the Melodyne 4 Studio standalone interface, then moves into a demonstration of importing audio and using the Auto Stretch feature.

Eli then explains his best practices for multiple track file management, as well as explores both mouse and key command navigation, scrubbing, scrolling, and zooming.

Moving on, Eli covers working with tempo, by showing you how to record a free performance and then assign a tempo to it, and how to work with time signatures.

You'll then explore the various options for tempo editing, including copy/paste, conforming tempo and other ways to manipulate tempo.

A great Melodyne 4 features allows you to define custom scales, and Eli reveals how to use the Scale Detective and then customizing scales and tuning by editing and defining the musical intervals used by Melodyne in pitch detection.

Eli now discusses Exporting, and then covers how to use the Sound Editor. You'll learn how to perform a spectral analysis of the harmonics of each note using the emphasis and dynamics sliders, and then see how to edit the overtone structure of the notes.

After that, Eli shows you the EQ working area and demonstrates how to use it like a graphic equalizer. Finally, you'll experience the Synth Working Area and explore the Envelope and Re-Synthesis Controls.

When you're ready to take your knowledge of Melodyne 4 to the next level, don't miss "Melodyne 4 Advanced"!

Melodyne Is Amazing!

Eli does an excellent job of going in depth to all the wonderful things that Melodyne can do. Most people just think of it as a pitch corrector, but it is much much more with timing adjustments and even sound design.

First video answered my first big question

I opened my account 10 minutes ago and already found what I needed as well as what I will need for the next step! My only gripe is the video time line bar and pause functions are too small to use effectively on an iPad. It's always handy to be able to pause on a spot while you experiment on the DAW in this case Melodyne.

Excellent job so far. I'd just like even more.

Whenever I see that Eli Krantzberg is the author of a tutorial, I know that I will be getting quality, and this tutorial was no exception. Eli is passionate about what he does and explains things well. From time to time I wish he would slow down a bit, but that's only a minor issue as I can always just go back and watch the tutorials as many times as necessary. At this point I wish he would do a melodyne tips and tricks tutorial. I would especially like a little more detail on working with multiple tracks with the plug-in version, and I would like an explanation on how to import and use professionally recorded songs into a project so as to be able to use it as a guide when I am covering the same song. Good job, Eli. I'd just like to see even more.

1. When did you start dabbling in music?

I started playing drums in high school at age fourteen. Like most kids my age around then, I was into progressive rock. Genesis, Emerson Lake and Palmer, and Yes. They rocked my world. A few short years later though, my musical life changed. While studying music in college I discovered Charlie Parker, Milt Jackson, Sonny Stitt, and John Coltrane. Milt Jackson spoke to me in such a profound way that it left me no choice but to take up vibraphone.

These great players, along with  drummers like Philly Joe Jones, Max Roach, Art Blakey, and Elvin Jones changed not only the way I thought about drumming, but also music - and by extension, life - as a whole. I realized life was meant to be a creative endeavor. The idea of improvising based on a loose set of guidelines and rules permeated into my psyche even when I wasn't holding a pair of drumsticks or mallets. But if I am going to be perfectly truthful, I have to hold Henry Miller and Woody Allen equally responsible for shaping the way I view and experience the world around me. 

2. What training have you had?

I am currently an Apple certified Logic Pro. Young and cocky, and armed with only a partial University degree, I dropped out of school and  began playing steady commercial hotel engagements and jazz gigs when I could. This went on for many years until I decided it was time to complete my degree - which I ultimately did with a major in Political Science and a minor in music. 

It was at this point that I formed my current band Nightshift. We are going in to our twenty third year now - playing commercial one nighters like weddings, corporate events, etc. Don't turn your nose up at it though - it has allowed me a wonderful quality of life. It gave me the freedom to go back to school and complete a post graduate degree in Communications Studies - all the while supporting myself by playing weddings.

3. When did you get into recording?

It was in this graduate program - in the early nineties - that I found myself drawn to the fledgling emerging universe of hard disc recording and midi sequencing. Based on nothing more than the recommendation of one of my band mates who had an old Atari, I jumped in head first and bought a Mac LC ll, along with a version 1.1 of what was then Notator Logic. I had no idea what I was getting myself into. But, in hindsight, it was a decision of epic importance in my life - shaping my future as much as the music of Milt Jackson and Charlie Parker did fifteen years prior. 

I opened up my own commercial home studio in 1998 and began doing a variety of projects, working on radio jingles, artist CD projects, and whatever came my way. A couple of years later a colleague called me up - desperate. He was working at a post production house and one of the editors had just quit. They were doing audio post for a weekly TV series and needed a Pro Tools editor - and fast! And so, once again, I jumped in head first into what would ultimately open up my world even more - the world of Pro Tools. 

4. People you have worked with/for?

Focusing on Logic, I built up a small but loyal client base and my phone kept ringing for Logic tech support and instruction. Film composers and studio owners all over the city were calling me. Even the music stores were giving out my phone number at this point! This kind of stuff becomes a self fulfilling prophecy. The more of it you do, the more calls you get to keep doing it. At least that's the way it should be!

As my Logic chops kept growing, I was hired by an old buddy of mine, Len Sasso, who was then an associate editor at Electronic Musician magazine, and began writing some columns for them. I had a blast doing them - and really learned to focus and express my thoughts in a concise and clear manner. This lead to a collaboration with LA based composer Terry Michael Huud on the 2006 film called Civic Duty - which was certainly one of the highlights of my professional life as a composer. 

5. Why are you so good at training people?

I wake up every day excited to boot up, and create. Whether it's instructional videos, creating music, working with a studio client, performing with my band, or teaching at the schools - my days are filled with what I love doing. Enriched by the stimulation and creative freedom this modern music making software brings to my life. I bring that excitement and passion to each and every training product I create. My years of experience both using and teaching these programs has taught me the best way to make the user comfortable with these complex programs.
