Celemony Software GmbH, Munich, 26.6.2019 (ictw) – With Cubase and Nuendo, two more major DAWs have integrated the ARA Audio Random Access interface extension. As a result, Melodyne is now far easier for Steinberg customers to use.
Steinberg Cubase 10.0.30 and Nuendo 10.1 integrate basic support for the ARA2 interface, which makes significantly improved communication with ARA-capable plug-ins possible. In the case of Melodyne, for example, ARA makes time-consuming transfers unnecessary, allowing you instead to just open the desired audio events directly in Melodyne – almost as though Melodyne were one of the DAW’s own editors. Furthermore, Melodyne now also follows automatically whenever you move, shorten, lengthen, copy or mute audio events in the DAW, which considerably simplifies the subsequent rearranging of Melodyne-edited content.
ARA offers Steinberg users far faster and simpler access to Melodyne’s powerful audio correction and sound design functions. These include tried-and-tested, musically sensitive functions for the editing of vocals as well as instruments of all kinds, workflow advantages such as Multitrack Note Editing for the simultaneous editing of notes on multiple tracks, and the unique possibilities afforded by the Melodyne Sound Editor for tone coloration and filtering. And all this with the Grammy Award-winning sound quality that is Melodyne’s hallmark!

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.
