Melodyne Plugin 2, set for release in the first quarter of 2009, will revolutionize the music recording industry. Melodyne utilizes Direct Note Access technology, which breaks down chords into individual notes that can be manipulated.

With Melodyne Plugin 2, a user can take an existing song's infrastructure and create an entirely new work by cutting and pasting individual notes or chords. This means that musicians can potentially record one take and leave it to computer geeks to correct and improve their music.
