Version history

Here you will find an overview of all changes introduced by the most recent Melodyne updates.

New in Version 5.1

Features and improvements

  • macOS 11 Big Sur: Melodyne 5.1 is compatible with macOS 11 Big Sur on Intel-based Macs as well as on ARM-based Macs under “Rosetta”.
  • DAW-oriented keyboard shortcuts: We are always looking for ways to make the operation of Melodyne even easier for users of digital audio workstations. That’s why we’ve included sets of keyboard shortcuts customized for Pro Tools, Logic, Cubase and Studio One in Version 5.1. You can choose the set you want from the Shortcuts page of the Preferences dialog.
  • Exporting lead sheets: It is now possible to export the contents of the Chord Track as a lead sheet via MIDI; you will find the relevant command in the Chord Track’s context menu.
  • Algorithm selection: During ARA operation with Cakewalk, Melodyne’s Select Algorithm menu is now displayed prior to any MIDI export.
  • ARA improvements: The interaction with ARA DAWs has been optimized in various ways – partly to ensure compatibility with future DAW versions.
  • New keyboard shortcuts: It is now also possible to assign keyboard shortcuts to the following commands: “Show Sibilants”, “Note Leveling”, “Copy Song Data to Note Assignment…” and “Copy Note Assignment Data to Song…”.

Bug fixes

  • A keyboard shortcut assigned to “Toggle Cycle Mode” now also works reliably when Melodyne is running as a plug-in and under ARA.
  • MIDI export has been improved and muted notes are no longer included in the export.
  • Under macOS, keyboard shortcuts using the function keys are now also correctly displayed in the menu.
  • The “Set Cycle to Selection” function now also works correctly in Studio One.
  • When you stop playback in Pro Tools, the playback cursor in Melodyne now remains where it was when playback was halted, instead of springing back to the previous start position.

New in Version 5.0.2

  • Bugfix: The installation program no longer launches under Windows 7, displaying instead a message saying that Windows 7 is not supported.
  • Bugfix: In the Note Editor, you can now also place time handles without having to select a note first.
  • Bugfix: In the Note Editor, you can now also move note separations without having to select a note first.
  • Bugfix: In Samplitude X5, when a new audio file is detected, whichever algorithm is selected as the default is now used.
  • Bugfix: There is no longer a delay before newly inserted note separations are displayed in the Note Editor.
  • Bugfix: In Cubase (in Transfer mode, i.e. without ARA), Melodyne still displays correctly even if you have changed the size of its window.
  • Bugfix: During local playback in ARA mode, overlapping notes are no longer erroneously played back at the comping boundaries.

New in Version 5.0.1

  • Bugfix: Use of the “Separate Notes as Trills” command no longer produces occasional artifacts.
