  1. I completely deleted cakewalk last month, but this problem appeared when I re-downloaded it. I don't know why but Melodyne is the only one I couldn't re-install, I am sure that it had been completely removed. Can someone teach me how to solve it? please.
  2. This question has come up a few times so I I am sharing some info I got from Celemony. This primarily applies to SONAR users who are now using Cakewalk by BandLab. As part of SONAR Platinum users got a license of Melodyne 4 Essential. (If you are a new Cakewalk by BandLab user you are offered the trial version of Melodyne) Melodyne 5 has many advantages over Melodyne 4, including ARA 2 integration and workflow improvements. As far as Melodyne 5 Essential goes the biggest advantage is that unlike version 4, it supports polyphonic pitch to MIDI out of the box. In version 4 you had to purchase Melodyne Editor to get this. To get your free Melodyne essential update to Melodyne version 5. a. Login to your Celemony user account and find Melodyne 4 Essential b. Click License Options c. Click the Download button for your free update. d. Install Melodyne That should be it. If you have any issues transferring your license contact Celemony support.
  3. I've been suffering from excessive slowness in Melodyne startup since I upgraded to v4 (from v3) several years ago: the first instantiation per run of Cakewalk/SONAR before it, or even a VST scan, would take almost exactly 15 seconds (on old quad core Q6600 as well as more recent Ruzen 2600). Subsequent opens in the same Cakewalk/SONAR session were fast. Celemony support were unable to help. Thanks to a post on an unrelated topic in this forum: I can confirm that the lack of iLok/PACE driver/service on the system is what causes the slowdown: I installed the License Manager (no licences associated with it) and Melodyne starts quickly (essentially instantly). So if you have no iLok-protected software on your machine but want to use Melodyne with machine authentication, you will experience slow startup unless you install the iLok/PACE license manager software.
  4. Hello everyone! If I accidentally put it in the wrong place, I'm sorry. For some reasones i had to reinstall cakewalk. So i uninstalled it trough Bandlab Assistant. I had some oter issues. (Windows was thinking that the Melodyne is a virus.) But finaly i got rid of Melodyne. Then i wanted to reinstall everything but i found this: https://imgur.com/a/zYt6K4n. I also added pictures from my control panel so as you can see i Don't have melodyne but assistant says something else. if someone has already posted it, please link.
  5. I'm still trying to track this one down, but I've been able to reproduce it twice. I'm going to start a new project and see if I can always repro it. But I wanted to bring it up. The details around this: Problem After extensive multi-track editing in Melodyne 5 Studio, during an Audible bounce of the project, it stops half-way through playback with no errors and no drop outs. It just stops playing. The bounce file is written to disk and contains audio up to the point of where Cakewalk stops (as you'd expect if Cakewalk dropped out during a bounce). Upon this point, nothing looks problematic. All tracks still have clips that show the waveforms and the clips all show melodyne is on them (RFX menu). however, The audio no longer plays on all the tracks that had melodyne running. Details Upon saving the project file, the project file size is MUCH smaller than before. IE: The project went from 9 MB with melodyne edits to now 1 MB. ^^^ These are the first time and second time reproductions of the issue. I had to re do about 4 hours of work, unfortunately. I'm fully aware of how to backup projects and as you can see, I have pretty good structure in my process. I have enabled additional auto save iterations every 15 minutes in case this happens again, but what is done is done. I'm still working to reproduce this in a new project, but I'm pretty sure I have a good idea what is happening, since I reproduced the issue in the same project. I believe that Cakewalk is doing some kind of plugin data size check and once it sees X amount of data for a plugin, it's assuming there was a problem and it's deleting all the data. This is purely a guess. But I think it's very coincidental that this point seems to be about 8 MB. How I got melodyne data so large: Melodyne studio 5 is an incredible piece of software. With the latest version, you have manual controls over de-essing, per note / syllable gain adjustments and so forth, in additional to pitch correction (so yeah, no shnarky comments about how you wouldn't need this with a good singer). In multitrack mode, you can also manually adjust stretching and timing of each word. It's a dream come true for adjusting vocals. And yes, there are things like vocal sync, but manually doing this in melodyne yields amazing results. And more importantly, this is what melo 5 studio was designed to do. So it's not like I'm demanding an odd use-case on this one. After talking to a bunch of people, they kept saying things like "you're supposed to bounce melodyne on each track or it does weird things". This is an unacceptable response. Again, the point of melodyne "studio" is multi-track editing in context. But I believe that maybe this is why they bounce each track. They may also be hitting this unknown limitation (assuming I'm correct about the cause. ) I'll be providing better repro steps for this. But I wanted to get this feedback started. If anyone else wants to do a repro, that'd be great too. I had about 7 tracks. On my last reproduction, I just started nudging and making random adjustments, saving and adding more until I saw the project size grow by about 8 MB. Then I did an audible bounce and hit this issue a second time. ❤️ bakers. Looking forward to resolving this. It was a rough weekend and I missed a deadline 😕 @msmcleod @Noel Borthwick
  6. Hi all! Is it just on my system that every time when opening Melodyne as a region FX, it always defaults to being docked at the bottom of the main screen? I undock the Melodyne window every time and and drag it to my second screen. But yet, the next time I create a region FX, it's back to being docked... it gets tedious fast. 😅
  7. I removed some measures between verses of a song, and when I played it back, there was a vocal that was like an echo that continued 6 measures after the end of the track. I tracked it down to Melodyne at the track level, which was playing the vocal in its original position. I know Melodyne is wonky and can be completely undone by any track edits like trimming or splitting clips after adjustments are made, so I usually render any tracks with Melodyne right away, but I just switched to Cakewalk and was distracted by the learning curve, so I have active Melodyne on 3 tracks. Is there a way to move the Melodyne adjustments to line up with where the vocal is now without redoing it all? And Is there a setting in Melodyne or Cakewalk that would make changes in track arrangements take the Melodyne adjustments along with the arranger sections when they’re moved. I know Melodyne can be applied on the clip rather than the track, and hopefully I’ll remember to do that in the future, but if there’s a setting that would help prevent this from happening again and a way to fix the current problem, that would be helpful.
  8. Hey All I was watching a tutorial on using Melodyne on backing vocals, and saw there was a Project View in Melodyne where the person could show the melody blobs of two separate tracks in one Melodyne view in for comparison. The topic wasn't how to set that up, so I don't know how. I have Melodyne 4 editor edition, so maybe it's a different version thing, but can someone tell me how to reference more than one track at once in Melodyne? 😀
  9. For the past few years I have been buying sheet music, scanning it into the computer with SmartScoreX2 (now SmartScore64) correcting the scan and turning into a MIDI type 1 for cakewalk to use. If necessary, I have learned how to split the file into left and right versions using the Staff view. There are some songs that simply never made it to sheet music or a MIDI file. Surfing around recently, I saw someone convert an audio file to MIDI in Fruity Loops. I followed it and realized that Melodyne can convert audio to MIDI. I am currently in Melodyne Studio 5.02.2003, loaded the audio; pulled up melodyne region effects; set the pitch and quantize to 100%; and then bounced the track to MIDI in melodyne. The result was very close; The melody is there. The Bass line is a mess. I am musically rather ignorant and have developed various tricks to get by. I have a good ear and can hear when something is off. I took an online course this spring on Music Theory which filled in many of my gaps in knowledge. https://stackskills.com/p/music-theory-for-electronic-producers-the-complete-course My question is: Can anyone give me suggestions on correcting the produced MIDI which seems to have a lot of extra notes and is quite busy(?). It is in the key of D major and I assume that should help me determine which notes are correct. Any guidance would be appreciated. If I can figure out how to do this, I'll have quite a bit of work to do on Music that did not reach sheet or MIDI level!
  10. i have some problem so i'm uninstalled the cakewalk and all the served addons and then, i'm download it again when download the cakewalk in the BandLab Assistant i can choose 4 addons but cant download the melodyne ( already checked in install box) (maybe, because it was downloaded before) but i don't need 30 day trial version ( if that is unlimited free, i have to fix my problem) so point is, melodyne, serviced in cakewalk is a 30 day trial version or unlimited free version? sorry for my bad English thx to read
  11. Talking with a fellow cakewalk user I was reminded that melodyne came free with cakewalk but I couldn't locate it- -I tried uninstalling/reinstalling the program from control panel (In spite my windows account being an admin this kept happening)- -I couldn't Directly un/install it either since the check boxes were faded out For context, I originally avoided installing melodyne right away in fear for my PC's processing power but after being able to mix and master some tracks I want to look into it and try again. Unfortunately I was greeted with the following technical problems as I just mentioned.
  12. In this brief overview of Melodyne 5 Essential. I cover the most basic controls as well as give a couple practical examples.
  13. New session, new issue. I have a vocal track with Melodyne on it. I'm trying to raise the level. Fader moves are audible. Gain all the way up or down not audible. I make drastic changes in EQ, not audible. Prochannel is on. But when I disable Melodyne, then I can hear the changes. Why is Melodyne affecting my track like this?
  14. Hello. I've got a strange problem and I'm not sure if it's me doing something improperly, or software. I'm using Cakewalk for like a month and now I started to learn the Melodyne. According to every tutorial and documentation, after running it as a region FX, the blobs should instantly appear orange-red. In my case they are always gray. Also lasso-selection is disabled, I can only select notes through double-clicking and edit them only by putting numbers into the inputs (the left section). Is it the software version limitation? Is it me forgetting to check one obscure box?
  15. This email flew by yesterday and I found the video (3:24) interesting enough that it is worth posting here. I have never used Melodyne during comping and the video says that this works in ALL versions. The part at 1:45 is worth noting (editing takes in Melodyne to align timing issues), since I had no clue that editting masked takes was even possible.
  16. Hi CW, I am running Melodyne 4 essential and using it as Region FX. When I go into Note Assignment Mode, the screen that shows the notes jumps to a different part of the song. So for example I am trying to edit a note in bar 1, when I go to Note assignment mode, the melodyne screen switches to bar 4. However on Cakewalk I see bar 1 and when I hit play I also hear bar 1, but Melodyne shows it is on bar 4. So it is impossible for me to cut the note at the right spot if I cannot see it on the screen as it is playing. This happens with none of the notes are selected btw. Please help! Thank you as always!
  17. Unfortunately our current Melodyne version 4.2.2 has an error which, in certain constellations, when the application starts, displays a “version is expired” message and quits again. We are truly sorry that we missed this bug. In any case you should replace your current Melodyne installation with the newest version 4.2.3, which we have uploaded. You can find the installer in your user account: https://services.celemony.com/cgi-bin/WebObjects/LicenseApp The good news: documents you have saved with the 4.2.2 version are not affected by the problem in any way. After installing the new version you can continue working as always. We would like to sincerely apologise for the application error and the caused inconveniences and ask for your understanding.

    Melodyne trial period?

    Those of you that activated the (inbuilt) default addon Melodyne trial in may or june 2018, is it still working? The normal procedure for a trial software is to shut it down after a certain period. Will Melodyne trial ever shut down?
  19. Hi all, I was having some issues activating Melodyne so the company suggested I uninstall it and delete the file named Celemony.license in C://User/USERNAME/Appdata*/Roaming/Celemony Software GmbH/Licenses. The program is now registered and I can use it and make edits as a standalone. However when I try to use it inside Cakewalk by creating Region Fx, Cakewalk just suddenly crashes with no warning. Also I tried setting up as a Re-wire track and as a plugin with same result. Any ideas? Notes: *Before I uninstalled Melodyne I opened up 2 projects in Sonar Professional to see if maybe Melodyne was activated there and not in Cakewalk but it wasn't. However those two projects are corrupt now and crash as soon as you try to open them. Thanks in advance!
  20. Hey All-- Maybe you don't struggle with finding good vocal harmonies like I do, but typically if I can't sing a good harmony over my melody after a couple sessions, I get frustrated and then I know it's not going to end well. I remembered seeing a training video on creating melodies with Melodyne, and I watched a good one last night, and so I'm going to give it a try. If it sounds good, I'll keep it in the mix. If it sounds like a robot, then I'll just sing over the part and it served its purpose of helping me create a good harmony line. Anyone used Melodyne this way? What are your thoughts/advice? Thanks!
  21. Track 1: imported (mainly) vocal harmony sample about 12 seconds long Track 2: midi drum loop from Cakewalk Trying to tie the two together so the vocal sample follows the tempo of the drums.... Tried the quantize tool in Melodyne. It asks me to use the SI-Drum Track as the reference but then doesn't do anything to alter the timing of the notes in the vocal sample. I take it what I am expecting is too much and I need to physically change the position of each note in the vocal sample individually? [Rhetorical question: if what I am asking Melodyne to do automatically is too difficult, then what is the point of the quantize tool?]
  22. Improvements in the current Version 4.2.2 Melodyne 4.2.2 brings the following improvements and numerous minor optimizations all of which make your use of Melodyne more enjoyable, reliable and swift. (Starting from Version 4.2.1) New functions and improvements Better window management in Studio One 4: Melodyne’s zoom and other window settings now remain constant when you select a new audio region, instead of being displayed with individual settings as previously. Bug fixes Fixed: In Cakewalk, under certain circumstances, instead of new files being analysed automatically, you had to select an algorithm manually in order to trigger the detection process. Fixed: In the stand-alone implementation of Melodyne, closing a project without saving sometimes led to a crash if other projects were open at the time. Fixed: In Logic, validating the Melodyne plug-in sometimes slowed down the launch of the DAW. Fixed: In the stand-alone implementation of Melodyne, opening or importing projects under certain circumstances led to a crash. Fixed: In ARA mode, it could happen under certain circumstances that the monitoring during blob editing no longer functioned after starting and stopping playback. Fixed: In Cakewalk, selecting a new clip sometimes led to a misalignment of the Melodyne position display.
  23. I'm running Cakewalk by Bandlab 2019.05 (Build 31) and Melodyne Editor I think these are the latest versions of both. When Melodyne works, it's great, but it's hit or miss when I create a region FX with it. Sometimes when the editor opens I have blobs, and sometimes not. I have tried making sure my timeline cursor is in the region. I have selected long regions (12 measures) and short ones (less than one bar), and it's erratic either way -- sometimes I get blobs, and sometimes not. If I have no blobs I can't do anything, so I "remove region fx" and try again. Eventually it works, but it doesn't seem to be related to anything I'm doing. It just decides to work. Any ideas about this? Thanks! UPDATE: Just noticed this other thread about what seems to be the same problem. User thinks it might be in the German version of Melodyne, but I'm using the English version.
  24. I'm running the latest assistant ( with the latest CwB. I've had this problem for some time, so it's not just the versions. 1) I record a series of vocal tracks 2) Edit them with Melodyne 3) Record a guitar track and during recording, the vocal track comes in exactly 1 bar late Has anyone else experienced this?
