I was especially impressed with what I saw on various video demos about Melodyne. It appears it can be bought in pieces to suit the needs of the individual... whether it be the vocalist or, like in Mike's hands, a full blown producer and demo artist combined.

Mike, from a vocalists point of view, which version of Melodyne do you recommend? Realizing that I (at present) record everything onto only one track, I'll have to adapt to using at least a separate vocal track in order to use Melodyne.

Can you see the bells, whistles and light bulbs going off inside my brain? LOL!

Thanks for sharing. More questions later.

Hi Dave,

I use Melodyne Editor (up to version 2.0.1), which is basically their "single track" offering and the least expensive.Single track just means one track per instance. The track can be a mixdown of several things, or a solitary lead vocal, and one can have several instances on several tracks, if one wants. One puts it into the vocals' channel and then clicks the "transfer" button so it turns orange and then Melodyne captures the vocals into it's software, and it's fairly intuitive to use, though I can't imagine how some people use the Standalone version that comes when one purchases the software--I just use it as a VST effect in FL Studio..

Thanks, btw, for the kind words..it's fun trying to be helpful!
