Melodyne Sci-Fi


I recently emailed a link of the the "Melodyne Direct Note Access" demo to a dear friend; he responded almost immediately with the following reaction:

Melodyne is crazy cool!  Have you actually installed it and tried it out?  I watched the demo, and it's like I'm watching an audio version of one of those eye-rolling effects in a sci-fi, where they snapshot and image and then extrapolate a 3d model out of it, or "enhance" the bit depth of an image =).  If I had seen this in a movie, I would have definitely laughed.

Click here to see the demo.

Hello Robyn, quick off-topic comment; your contact email seems to be down ("No user: error 550"), and I had a specific query regarding Videogame Preservation work and Myst which isn't too typical; if you could email me, or sort the contact email so I could send you my original email, it'd be great to ask properly :)

This makes me think of something Moby wrote in an interview a few years back... he said that the first person to make a piece of software that could realistically simulate the human voice with the ability to manipulate said voice would be someone to revolutionize the industry and make a fortune. He said the program should let you enter, say, values for a 120 pound 18 year old Caucasian woman and then have the program produce that kind of voice. This seems like the first real step in that direction.
