Ready to edit your tracks, but not sure where to start? Melodyne 5 essential gives you an easy way to begin. With Melodyne 5 essential, you edit your vocals using the basic functions for pitch and timing. Musical, quick and easy. And if you need more, you can always upgrade, paying only the difference.

essential comes with all of Melyodyne's algorithms except DNA. This means you can edit monophonic vocal and instrumental tracks, as well as drums, and even entire mixes (by time-stretching or transposing them, for instance). All that’s missing is the ability to edit individual notes played by polyphonic instruments such as the piano or guitar.

With Melodyne 5 essential's Main Tool, you can edit each note’s pitch, timing and duration as well as note separations. This—combined with the macros for pitch, timing and dynamics—allows you to make simple improvements fast without having to deal with the more advanced functions.

In a nutshell: Melodyne essential is the easy-access point of entry to Melodyne’s unique editing environment.
