Default Melodyne assistant

I received a message from Melodyne saying I could upgrade my Melodyne Essential to Melodyne Assistant for only €49. Is it worth doing that, do you think? It's obviously not very expensive but is there a big difference?

can't answer if you need it
but do it if you have the money
much more fun with assitant than essentials
though no dna (you need editor or studio and much more money)

I have so far only used it for single vocal tracks, then assistans is ok.
If you need to edit polyphonic tracks (guitar chord etc) then it might be worth it.
Look at https://www.celemony.com/en/melodyne...hnical-matters
to see the differences.

Studio is totally sick.

1. All Melodyne tracks in a project come up in the melo editor together and can be manipulated there or not. First time I did 24 BV's, I laughed out loud. INSTANT. It would have taken me AGES to do it one by one on each track.

2. Timing can be adjusted with reference to a selected grid or, this is a biggie, with reference to a selected track. So, for example, you have a load of backing vox a bit squiffy, you can adjust the timing with reference to the lead vocal's timing, which can remain unchanged, or not.

3. You can blend the gain of adjusted tracks with the gain of the ones that aren't being tweaked so you can hear what's happening.

I think, that‘s what I will choose to be able to better adjust guitar tracks ... I guess I won‘t need full project editing, but only single tracks. But the polyphonic option seems to be worth it to skip Assistant and choose Editor instead.

Others might have different needs

I am posting this in two different forums because, on reflection, I think this might be the more appropriate one.

I finally upgraded from Melodyne Essential to Assistant (to take advantage of their discount (€49 for the upgrade) and activated it on two machines. All I have is now grey blobs that I can do nothing with! Help.

Could I revert to Essential Melodyne?
