    My new BFF

    This thing is like Fred Flintstone's little buddy Kazoo, which pops up over my shoulder and fixes my junk with some kind of freaking space voodoo. After singing those vocals that still just don't pass my own self-critical muster after punishing myself with too many takes, Melodyne Assistant keeps my head out of my hands and my palm off my forehead. Alright, I'm not THAT bad of a singer, but after doing corrections, it will become glaringly obvious that you've just fixed the "clams" you didn't know were there along with the ones that you did. Harmonies and vocal doubles become tight and sweet. Intonation help is as surgical or as broad as needs it to be, and the interface is easy to learn. It's astonishingly transparent and kind to your voice. Even the sizzle of a good mic and the subtleties of a tube pre seem preserved, even on notes that have been wrangled home from a major excursion of nearly a half step. It feels like cheating, it sounds like granulated sugar, and it smells like victory. If you record vocals, whether your own someone else's, your life is about to get easier, so go make a cocktail and wink at yourself in the mirror after you complete your order. Of all my Sweetwater hard and soft gear, this is the thing that turned out to be my personal game-changer.

    Get It!

    If you're serious about the quality of you're final recorded products, get this program and learn to use it. It's truly indispensable in my work now. I'm going through several tracks that I thought we're finished and polishing them to a new shine I didn't even know was possible. And the doubters in my circle are all wowed now. I literally took a throw away scratch vocal and turned it into a great take. And then built a perfect harmony from scratch using the corrected track, It's black magic. lol

    Totally Amazing

    After using another pitch correction product, I decided to try this one. Once I got past the basics of how to use the program, it worked like a charm. The corrections are almost transparent- as if that was how the track was recorded originally. Thank you Sweetwater for suggesting this software for my DAW!

    This is great software. I had problems getting it installed, but Melodyne support was there on the spot all the way to help me through the problem. Great support staff. I had to use a new download of the latest version which is an update to this Melodyne Assistant version anyway. This is amazing software. You can put harmony vocals on pitch as well as in time with one another or even create full harmony from the lead vocal track. You do need to save your work guite often, but it really works and sounds natural.

    Good Product - Needs Better iFace

    I've been using this product for about a year in a commercial studio. The previous version was really nice as it allowed for the corrections to be transferred directly back to my PT HD session. Now, it must always be an active plug-in, taking up processing space. The interface could be a bit more forgiving (the mouse overs are extremely specific) and it would be nice to be able to have the keyboard notes have a user-editable feature to turn off a note in a particular scale. Otherwise, I do like the program...just a bit cumbersome.
