Melodyne in your DAW
Melodyne runs in your DAW either as a plug-in or under ARA. ARA Audio Random Access is the ideal form of integration: With ARA, you can open and edit tracks directly in Melodyne and also exploit to the full with maximum ease the advantages of Melodyne when comping. In the absence of ARA, the desired passage must first be transferred to the Melodyne plug-in via one of the normal VST3, AU or AAX interfaces. This takes a little time, though it is worth the wait. To discover which DAWs currently support ARA, please consult the following overview. Just click on the DAW that interests you.
Since the manufacturers of the various DAWs support ARA in different ways, the range of ARA functions offered varies from DAW to DAW. You will find details of the ARA support offered in each case in the documentation of the DAW in question.
The overview also shows you the configurations in which we have tested Melodyne with the various DAWs. Naturally, we only test using versions of each operating system that have been cleared for use by the manufacturer of the DAW in question. If you wish to use some other configuration, please check with the manufacturer of your DAW whether it is compatible with your operating system.
