With the Black Friday plugin deals now in full swing, Celemony have decided to join us with 40% off Melodyne upgrades, and off Melodyne Essential.
To make use of this deal you have until January 1st 2021.
Melodyne Black Friday Deal: What's On Offer
Included in the Melodyne Black Friday deals will be up to 50% off Melodyne upgrades. These will include Essential, Assistant & Studio, as well as upgrades from previous versions as low as Melodyne 3.
So, if you already have a version of Melodyne, you can save a huge amount by choosing to upgrade over the sale period.
Melodyne are also offering 50% off their entry level plugin: Melodyne Essential.
This means you can get into the Melodyne ecosystem for pretty cheap, and then purchase some upgrades to save money. Rather than buying the full version of studio, for instance, you could grab Melodyne 5 Essential, then upgrade to studio from Essential.
Example of saving upgrading with Melodyne Black Friday promotions
If you were to grab Essential on the promo, it would cost you: $56.
Then to upgrade to Studio, it would be an extra: $453.
The original price of Melodyne Studio alone is: $680
Upgrading from Essential to Studio this Black Friday will save you upwards of $100, saving an exact amount of $174 on your Melodyne upgrade.
What Is Melodyne?
Melodyne is the industry standard in vocal editing, pitching & production.
You'd be hard pressed to find a studio that doesn't have Melodyne installed on one of their computers. And, in fact, pretty much every modern track you listen to, will have been processed by Melodyne or some other form of auto tune.
It allows you to edit the notes of any sample in a MIDI roll-like format. So that means you can change the key of a vocal performance, or just do a little touching up, if it needs it.
Melodyne also prides itself on being extremely transparent – meaning you can pitch a sample to almost any key and it won't sound hard-tuned, or give a robotic, T-Pain-like effect that is so loved in today's rap & pop music.
