New Workflow Possibilities As Pro Tools Integrates Melodyne Via ARA



Melodyne workflows are considerably shorter, faster, and in some cases even totally new – and does so for every Pro Tools user.

Thanks to the new ARA integration, Avid Pro Tools and Melodyne are so tightly meshed that Melodyne feels less like an external plug-in and more like an integral part of Pro Tools. That not only accelerates the work process but also opens the door to entirely new workflows and creative possibilities.

The interaction between the two programs is so far-reaching that not only do clips and tracks open as Melodyne blobs with a single mouse click and follow every change made to the arrangement, but selection, zooming, scrolling as well as cycling, controlling the playback, and all kinds of other functions are also intelligently coordinated. Furthermore, Melodyne’s legendary algorithms expand Pro Tools’ own possibilities in areas such as comping and time-stretching – and do so by bringing Grammy-Award-winning sound quality to the task.

For the ARA integration of Melodyne, Pro Tools Version 2022.9 is required. Melodyne 5.3, which is also necessary, is installed automatically with the software update 2022.9 for Pro Tools Artist, Studio, and Ultimate, and is available to all customers with active subscriptions and perpetual licenses with current Updates + Support plans.
