It's super simple.  

  1. Record your vocals. 
  2. Right click on the vocal track and select "edit with melodyne"
  3. Highlight the audio in melodyne and select "Settings-> save as MIDI"
  4. You can then import that MIDI file to use how ever you like

Hi Mathew,

Many thanks, i was a bit lost in that i thought it would be super simple.

However i am using the essential version i bought together with studio one and (ofcourse) it seems that particular feature is not available to me unless i cough up a few hundred bucks. Not my kind of marketing...

But i appreciate your awesome answer.

Cheers, Kurt

Finally had some time to look into this a bit further and found a solution.

What i really wanted is to have the notes that are similar to the audio track, so you sing a few notes and voila = synth, edit etc.

Basically you can have Melodyne analyse the audio, you make a new synth track and you drag the audio track onto the synth track and edit the notes as you wish.

Anyway, glad that works, cheers for the help!
