Question Melodyne studio

Has anyone here used the Melodyne plug-in for pitch correction; if so how does it compare to Antares "Autotune". It looks good on paper! I know it will do a lot but I need a pitch correction plug-in for some vocals I have coming up. Any help will be appreciated.

I've been using Melodyne 3 quite a bit as of late and am impressed with how it handles pitch correcrtion. That said, I still reach for AT in spots. So for me, it's not an either or situation. Since they have different feels to them if you can have both available, it might help your workflow.

It makes me regret ever using AutoTune.

Melodyne rocks. It's amazing for both pitch correction and adjusting playback speed/tempo. That said, I also own 2 TC Intonators and have Auto-Tune on standby. 95% of the time I only reach for Melodyne and it nails it. When I can't get what I want I go to the Intonators. If those don't work I go to Auto-Tune (but only as a last resort).

Melodyne is scary. I've done things to guitar and horn lines that I felt guilty using because it sounds so real, and it's so....fake.

Melodyne is definitely more powerful than AT, and has creative applications far beyond "correction", but the interface is a bit awkward (although improved in v. 3). I would say the workflow with Autotune is much simpler for simple pitch correction.

I just bought the light version..."Uno" recently & am a large new fan. It's the most confident I've felt tuning a vocal. That said I tried to tune a mono guit solo part with it & couldn't quite find it...used Autotune and that worked like a charm. Melodyne does rawk though.

you have to be careful not to overcorrect things with Melodyne, it´s so easy. To straighten out vibratos and that sort of things. But it´s lovely to work with, better than AutoTune

Melodyne Cre8 ain't too stable on a G5 / Logic 7.2.1 ... I gave up getting it to work properly, went back to Antares ... if I get any downtime, I'll give it another go cause it looks likes it could be great ...

Melodyne blows AT out of the water. I was always struggling to get good results with AT, and with Melodyne, it just falls right into my lap. Scary, indeed.

+2 on the slightly akward interface. In general, the pitch correction algorythms sound superior to Antares. And yes.. Melodyne Cre8 and all models above it can become very interesting writing tools themselves. It's a lot of fun, and sounds wonderful once you learn how to use it.
