Does Steinberg have any plan to add polyphonic pitch detection into the VariAudio? The only reason I will buy the Melodyne is for its polyphonic detection algorithm.
And the only reason I will use the Pro tools is its integration of VocALign Project. The VocAlign Project is believed be optimized for Pro Tools for a quicker operation and smoother workflow. The Audio Alignment in Cubase provide the same operation and feature, however, the algorithm in Cubase’s Audio Alignment is not as strong as that from the VocALign Project. You can do some AB test on vocal lead and dubs. Cubase’s algorithm sometimes will mess up the beginning or ending. Generally, the VocALign Project’s algorithm is more on the safer side.
What I want to know is in the next promised release Q1, will there be some upgrade on them?
If Steinberg’s development team need more details about my comparison, please feel free to contact with me.
