It does have its limits - Reviews Celemony Melodyne Essential

Celemony Melodyne Essential is an affordable plug in that can work with your Windows and your Mac systems, it is good to work on both 32 and 64 bit systems and you can use it as a VST plug in for whichever DAW or workstation program you choose. The manual comes with it and it is in 5 different languages including English, French, German, Japanese, and Spanish. When using Celemony Melodyne you can use it for pitch correction which is also known as pitch shifting.


If you are using Melodyne Essential to a single sound, like a voice or a single bass instrument it will allow you to really get the most out of the VST. You can then change the pitch and change the position of each individual note.


Celemoney Melodyne Essentials is very affordable but it is not the best VST or pitch correction tool from Melodyne. They have other similar programs that are better with more features and the ability to get in depth with your sounds and pitch correction. But these other programs cost a lot more then Melodyne Essential. Melodyne Essential will leave you feeling like you need to do more, but it just doesn’t do more because it is the Essential version. You will need and want to eventually upgrade to the full version of Melodyne.

It is a great plug in for someone who is just learning to use pitch correction software. Or if you are on a small budget and can not afford the full version. But there are other pitch correction tools like Auto Tune Evo which will give you better options and it is more user friendly. I prefer Evo when it comes to pitch correction. Melodyne Essential kind of turned into a waste of money to me because after a few weeks it got boring and couldn’t perform all of the actions that I wanted it to. I have been using Melodyne for a year, and it never gave any problems as far as being compatible to my system. I have not had any crashes with this VST and it worked great in Pro Tools and with Reason.
