The program installed without any problems. I didn't have any compatibility issues on my system. The installation and setup is very simple, other than a slightly annoying registration process that has too many steps. Other than that one thing though, installation is a breeze. The manual is very thorough and explains every function in detail. I will definitely say though that this program absolutely has a learning curve. There are many subtleties in using it that you really just have to pick up on for yourself. Two users of this same program could easily get very different results based upon their skill at using melodyne skillfully and tastefully.

SUITABILITY/PERFORMANCE

It works fine on my XP based PC DAW. It's being used with an ASIO driver in the VST format with no trouble at all. It does tend to crash if you have too many instances open, so I would recommend to people to not have more than 3 instances of melodyne open at a time. If you need more, finish your work on the first 3, bounce and reimport the files, and pick up another 3 instances. The issue I believe is that melodyne tries to load too much data into the RAM, and it gets very unstable. If you keep it at only a few instances however, it works very well and is stable. It uses a fair amount of CPU power, so you wouldn't want to use too many at a time for that reason as well.

OVERALL OPINION

I have had melodyne for about 3 years. I absolutely love it. I couldn't imagine working without it now, knowing what it can do. This is really the secret weapon if you are working with a group where the singing is really not up to par. This can really help to take that problem entirely off the table. It is really amazing how much you can change the timing and pitch of a performance, and if you use it well, you can barely tell that it was affected in any way. This program has definitely been worth every penny, I can't say enough good things about it. I would definitely get it again. My only problem with it is that sometimes it makes S's and T's sound weird, but those can be replaced with the originals after the fact on particularly nasty instances. Other than that it's great!
