Does Cubase 10 have Multitrack Vocal Tuning?

To speed up my workflow, it would be great to tune with a multitrack option so I can see a tuned guide track as the same time as tuning a double/harmony.

Melodyne Studio offers this feature but the upgrade from Melodyne Assistant is $599! That is a heavy price even for a full time user. Cubase is $559, I can even get a crossgrade for only $339!

I like the idea of adding Cubase to my DAW toolbox and if multitrack vocal tuning, or vocal tuning with ghost/guide clips is a thing, that will tip the scales on me buying it.

Is it a thing in Cubase?

You can see several tracks at the time when tuning. So if I understand the question correctly the answer is Yes.

In Cubase 10 you can work on multiple overlaid tracks simultaneously - you can also use the chord track to direct variaudio to instruct you as to what are the "correct" notes in the scale/chords you're working with. Obviously variaudio is restricted to monophonic material - Melodyne I believe is still the only pitch software to deal with polyphonic material. I have Melodyne Studio, but variaudio is so good now that (for vocals) I rarely have to fire Melodyne up - Cubase gives me what I need for day to day vocal correction and manipulation. The individual (advanced) tools with variaudio 3 is IMHO actually now better than Melodyne (not in terms of audio quality but ease of use.) The ability to select individual parts of a word and change forment, tilt or change pitch, change volume of individual syllables without moving the cursor more than a few inches - all the tools are there whether you are "merely" correcting or creating vocal soundscapes/backing vocals.

I wasn't going to go Cubase 10, but a windows update (why did I allow it!) broke Output Substance in Cubase, I tried 10 which fixed that issue. CB10 though IS more crash prone overall than 9.5 which is rock solid - other than Substance! I must say I love variaudio 3. Still wary of crashes though.

Hah! Awesome. Yeah, besides the multi track view, Melodyne essentials does pretty much everything I need in a tuning utility. So no way I am dropping $600 on the upgrade when I can get that tool plus the benefit of being able to open more clients project files with Cubase. Cubase here I come!
