    Melodyne changes audio for Ableton
    Hi all, I've recorded an audio track in Ableton. Then exporte the file an ran it through melodyne. Then when I load it back into Ableton, the audio track has shortened, and speeds up a few times, so it doesn't match my other ableton tracks anymore. What could be the problem here? Is it something in melodyne that causes the changes, or is it something in Ableton? Thanks in advance :)

    Re: Melodyne changes audio for Ableton
    Hi - Hmm.. more information is really needed here.. - Most importantly, what did you do to the file in Melodyne? - Did you actually export an audio file to a stand-alone version of Melodyne and back? If so, why not use the Melodyne plug-in within Ableton, which should be easier? If you did export/re-import the audio, I'd try doing the same operation[s] in the Melodyne plug-in within Ableton and see if that works properly. You asked "is it something in melodyne that causes the changes" ..?? As you know Melodyne is all about time-shifting and pitch-shifting, so of course the file will be changed.. For example, if you, say, quantized in Melodyne, and Melodyne's tempo analysis did not match the actual tempo of the Ableton session, then I could see how that might result in a loss of sync. That's why you'd need to be specific about what you did with the audio in Melodyne. It's also why I'd suggest working with the plug-in within Live, where sync should be automatically maintained. I've attached a Melodyne course [above] -- maybe something in there will be helpful [check out video #2 in particular]..
