Celemony GmbH, Munich/ Germany, July, 17th 2016 – (ictw) – For Capstan, Celemony’s software solution for removing wow and flutter from vinyl and tape recordings, a free update to Version 1.3, bringing various detail enhancements, is now available.
With the free update to Version 1.3, Capstan can now load audio files larger than 1.5 GB. This possibility was integrated at the request of customers, whereby technical optimizations even with very large files assure a rapid display and editing tempo. Furthermore, Capstan 1.3 supports the high resolution display with HiDPI on suitable Windows systems and is compatible with the latest iLok driver software.
Capstan is based on Celemony’s patented DNA Direct Note Access technology, which is also used by Melodyne. Since it is capable of detecting wow and flutter from the music itself – regardless of the medium (magnetic tape, vinyl, etc.) – Capstan is superior to other solutions that rely on reading the bias, because Capstan still functions even if the tape has been copied several times or digitized at low sampling rates. Capstan is used worldwide by classic labels as well as renowned mastering and restoration studios, broadcasters and archivists, having proved its worth on numerous occasions through the rescuing of valuable historical recordings.
Capstan can be used for only US$/€ 199 for five days, whilst a permanent license costs US$ 4,458/€ 3,790.

Celemony is the pioneer and market leader in the musical, note-based editing of audio. The company’s principal product, Melodyne, inaugurated this type of audio editing in 2001, established itself in the intervening years – for vocal editing in particular – as the standard worldwide, and has gone on pushing out the envelope in innovative audio editing ever since to the limits of what is technically possible. In 2008, for example, Celemony presented its patented DNA Direct Note Access, which extended Melodyne’s editing capabilities to polyphonic audio material – right down to individual notes within chords. Other important technologies developed by Celemony include the musically intelligent restoration tool Capstan, the pioneering plug-in interface ARA, the unique Sound Editor introduced by Melodyne 4 and – another Melodyne 4 revelation – Multitrack Note Editing, which facilitates the simultaneous, note-based editing of an unlimited number of audio tracks. Melodyne and Celemony have won numerous awards – among them, in 2012, the Technical Grammy.
