With both melodic and percussive audio files, Melodyne 's tempo and timing manipulation also provides very detailed control. Audio can be quantised to tighten up the timing or notes can simply be repositioned or shortened/lengthened. In doing the latter, Melodyne automatically adjusts the length of the adjacent note to preserve the monophonic nature of the audio. While this can generate some very bizarre vocal phrasing, used carefully, it can also rescue an otherwise good take if a minor timing problem is discovered after the singer has left the studio. It is also incredible how much a note can be stretched in length without it sounding unnatural.
Direct Note Access (DNA) allows independent manipulation of individual notes within chords and polyphonic recordings. Originally announced at Musikmesse Frankfurt 2008 to be released at the end of that year, it was later postponed to Q1 2009, then finally released on 16 November 2009 as part of Melodyne editor. On 14 January 2016, Celemony integrated DNA into their multitrack software Melodyne studio (version 4). 2b1af7f3a8
