Melodyne essential • Pitch correction basics

In this video, Rich covers all the basic editing techniques you can perform with Melodyne essential (and then, of course, with the larger Melodyne editions as well). Using a beautiful, very bluesy and soulful vocal performance as an example, he also discusses how far good editing may go and when – sometimes – less is more.

Rich is using Pro Tools here, but the workflow and functionality demonstrated would be exactly the same in any other ARA-equipped DAW.
