Icon Archibald 3.6.1

Archibald is a virtual drummer which improvises on your patterns. As you're building your rythm in the step by step sequencer, you determine its margin of interpretation from 0 to 100%.

Archibald is built with a 44,1 khz sampler with very realistics sounds. The second sequencer, driving the first, allows to program sequences based on several bars. Version 2.1 allows you to drive Archibald with an audio sequencer thanks to ReWire, and to mix the 7 individuals outputs of Archibald in this sequencer. You can also export your work as audio files, in stereo or multi channels mode.

Icon Melodyne 3.2.1.5

Melodyne studio edition, the version for the professional studio, offers Celemony's unique Local Sound Synthesis technology for a totally new and more creative form of access to audio data. Melodyne analyses audio data and allows you to edit parameters like pitch, phrasing and timing independently of one another and with complete freedom, yielding results of unsurpassed quality all non-destructively and in real time. Melodyne helps fix timing and intonation problems and therefore makes music production more efficient. At the same time, however, the program offers undreamed-of possibilities for the creative interaction with audio, allowing you to rearrange existing recordings and even combine them with one another. Melodyne is therefore one of the most versatile of all remix tools.
The single-track version of Melodyne works like a sample editor, only with the typical Melodyne functions, making it the ideal tool for the correction of pitch, the production of vocals and the editing of melodies. At all times, Melodyne uno reacts in a highly musical way preserving, for example, the original phasing and even the vibrato when correcting the pitch, as well as recognizing the underlying scale and transposing correctly from a musical standpoint. The program is easy to learn and use, and there are macros for the two most often used editing functions, Correct Pitch and Quantize Timing, that make it possible to tidy up a performers intonation and timing errors with the minimum number of mouse clicks.

It's in a class of its own and its already a classic. Simulates rooms the physical way. Two virtual loudspeakers and two virtual microphones can be positioned freely. RoomMachine 844 takes care of the rest. RoomMachine 844 is a real time, digital audio room simulator capable of capturing the characteristic spacial sound of natural rooms. RoomMachine 844 is not a reverb effect that delivers long, silky reverberation tails (try R2 or Reverb.it if you are looking for that), instead RoomMachine focuses on early reflections determined by the position of sound source and listener. RoomMachine 844 puts your track right into the room. Can be used as a master effect but is even more useful on single tracks or sections. Operation is in full stereo and all processing is performed in high quality, 32 bit floatingpoint precision. An easy to use interface with realistic, animated knobs gives you the look and feel of a true machine.
