I stumbled upon this earlier and it's simply incredible. Details:

Direct Note Access

the new Melodyne dimension

Direct Note Access is a technology that makes the impossible possible: for the first time in audio recording history you can identify and edit individual notes within polyphonic audio material. The unique access that Melodyne affords to pitch, timing, note lengths and other parameters of melodic notes will now also be afforded to individual notes within chords.

See our video above, read how Direct Note Access will change your music (http://www.celemony.com/cms/index.php?id=dna_intro1), find out when it will be available (http://www.celemony.com/cms/index.php?id=dna_intro4) and how you can benefit as a registered Melodyne user (http://www.celemony.com/cms/index.php?id=dna_intro4), get your questions answered (http://www.celemony.com/cms/index.php?id=dna_qa) and look forward with us to the realization of the impossible!


Key facts

Access individual notes in chords and polyphonic audio:
see them, grab them, edit them
Audio, not MIDI!
while editing single chord notes is common for MIDI, it is a world premiere for audio recordings. Patent pending.
Examples of use:
tune a guitar after recording, correct harmony vocals that are out of tune, or fix their timing, turn major chords to minor (and vice versa), switch tone scales, mute single notes, remix volume levels, etc. all after the performance is already taped!
All Melodyne tools available:
pitch shifting, time stretching, formants, amplitude you name it ...
Coming soon
available in Melodyne plugin, Version 2, first (scheduled for Autumn 2008); will also be integrated in future updates of other Melodyne editions
Upgrade options
benefit from being a registered Melodyne user. More ... (http://www.celemony.com/cms/index.php?id=dna_intro4)

I didn't look for a price but you are more than likely right about that. It's a really powerful program with a lot of features that aren't common in other audio editing programs. I'm sure most would still prefer the free alternatives as they are..well..free and they are already accustomed to the interface and how they work.

I just thought I'd tell people about it. Seems like a wonderful program with unique features not found in other programs (polyphonic note editing :drool:)

Not trying to coax anybody into buying it, it has a free trial as it is. :)

This looks very impressive. While it is designed for recording studio use, I'm sure it could be utilized for pitch correction in roio's. Not sure how well it would work because the demo shows pristine recordings where I'm sure it's easy for the software to analyze the recording and break chords into individual notes. Not sure how well it would work on an entire piece of music with multiple instruments playing at one time.

It cost $199 - $699 , sound expensive but lets face it so was sound forge if you bought everything & I'm sure sooner or later there will a wares vers on the loose at one of the less scrupulous help sites

Yes there will definitely be a "warez" or cracked version available sooner or later and I'm sure many know where to find such a thing but that's very illegal and shouldn't really be discussed here. It looks like a great program as I said, perhaps good for editing out some distortion bits here and there and whatnot. Really pricey indeed but for now I think many will probably stick with what they use already (sound forge, audacity, etc)

I'm sure many of its functions will be beyond most of us anyway,but I'm sure its just the thing for Hop/IFWT/Harvested/Breathe etc ,this is a very powerfull tool in the hands of those who are experts already & I'm sure some great upgrades will come out of its invention.For most of us Soundforge is complicated,but as most only do simple cuts & repairs anyway its more than powerfull enough which means most of won't be buying/using it anyway so sadly the price of this software is likely to stay high for some time
