I finally got the opportunity to purchase the Melodyne Plug-in and download it. The first test was to run it through some bass tracks I recorded earlier this autumn and yes it made them more tight which was the intent.Then I wanted to take something like a sentence my wife read into the microphone a couple 0f years’ ago. Little did or does she know that I’m now taking her material and making semi-melodies and formant changes in the output. Here’s an example of a quick hack I did with one sentence:
So there’s a lot of interesting experiments that are doable with Melodyne, not just the most obvious things such as tightening recordings and singing tracks as well as fixed singing not in tune.
So I suspect my family is now worried about me sneaking around with a recorder and picking up conversations…
