    Just for you buddy:http://www.northernsounds.com/forum/...light=melodyne

    I've often been tempted to get it but i use Auto tune and it's good enough for now. But with AutoTune, if you try some exaggerated pitch changes, they are quite noticeable as it does produce artifacts. Two things happen, one if you make large corrections you get some light digital clicking sounds, and 2), when attempting to make nice slides it sounds synthy. I would like to hear from melodyne users, I'd like to know just how hard you can push it with out getting artifical results.

    Thanks Rick! Here's the gig ... They tell me at Synthax that Samplitude V8 and Sequoia V8 do pitch correction and everything else that Melodyne does. I have a demo of Samplitude V8 but damned if I could get going enough to find out if that is so. I am leaning toward Melodyne and just forgetting Samplitude.
    Thanks for the link, I'm reading!
    Also, I am getting wide unbalanced pricing across the Internet for Melodyne. I'm wondering what the average price paid?

    I am also thinking of using Melodyne for performing pitchbend/blending, morphing, articulation/phrasing control, and time stretching. The UI seems more intuitive than what I see out there.

    I haven't done a price comparison, but Melodyne is available at Academic Superstore, where you get academic discounts (you're a teacher, if I remember correctly?)

    Frankly, those prices don't look particularly "academic" to me, but perhaps the full price is considerably higher?

    Chris, that's about right for the academic pricing. Surprisingly, I wasn't aware of two different Melodyne programs. Prices I've encountered ranged from $300 to $700 depending on dealer.
    I'll have to check into this deeper. Thanks!

    Melodyne comes in two editions, I think -- 'cr8' and 'studio'. The latter is more expensive, and offers some extra features. Now I have both samplitude (7 pro) and melodyne (studio version) and can compare: samplitude does much more, all that an audio editor should plus some midi capabilities; melodyne does much less, but what it does is done with exquisite ease and simplicity. Both are worth their price, imo, but melodyne is more astonishing and impressive and less a puzzle to learn. Price in US$ for cre8 around $300 and for studio around $500.

    Michael, This may interest you. On the other hand, it may not.

    I take it you haven't upgraded to Samplitude V8? Synthax sent me the V8 demo and I still can't get it to do normal everyday recording either audio, midi or both. Maybe being that it's just a demo version the intuitive is left out? Hard to believe they would make it so skimpy when all it may do is just the opposite to their sales.
