Does anybody use FL Studio on their mac? I don't mean in Bootcamp or whatever. You can download a demo from ImageLine's website and then enter you registration info and bam, you have FL Studio running on your Mac. They say "This is a custom Crossover wrapped version of FL Studio for Mac OS X and so is bit-identical to the Windows installer."
Anyway, I was wondering if you guys are able to get any version of Antares AutoTune working on this Mac version of FL Studio. I would like to find that out before I purchase it because theres no refunds when you purchase this software, correct?

Harmony Engine Evo v 126.96.36.199
When I setup and use the plug in, after saving the session, if I exit Nuendo and reopen the session, all the settings are lost in the Harmony Engine. The only work around I have found is to save the plug in settings using the "save preset" option and use that to recall after opening the session.
Please fix the plug in so it is recalled as a part of the native saved program setting.

Hi, new user here. I'm using the Harmony Engine EVO with Pro Tools 11 and Ableton Live 8. I've got it working with both programs. The only issue I'm having is within Ableton. I've got it set up as a plugin on an audio track, and it's processing prerecorded and live vocals. I'm using Chord Degrees as my harmony source, and I've midi mapped a Leap Motion midi controller (reads hand movements in 3D space) to the Chord box so I can scroll through the chords by moving my hand. Simple, and it works well, both on prerecorded tracks and in real time.
My issue, however, is that when I get the Harmony Engine set exactly how I want it, and then go to work on something else, or close the session, the next time I open the Harmony Engine to tweak the preset (or when I open the saved session) the Harmony Engine seems to have reset to some sort of default, with all the levels of the 4 voices all the way down, and the Harmony Source set back to Fixed Interval, as if I'd never made any changes. This happens continually, no matter how many times I save it. Even if I've just made changes, once I minimize the Harmony Engine and then open it up again it has "reset" itself.
This doesn't seem to be a problem within Pro Tools. I'm using Ableton 8.4.2 - my whole live show is within Ableton, and you all know how scary updates can be when something is working well so I haven't gone to 9 yet.
Wondering if you have any suggestions.

I have not been able to get the natural sound that I heard on the You Tube videos. I have tried everything I know to try, but the output is garbled. Please help.

I just purchased the product. Went to the download site and got the installer archive:Harmony_Engine_Evo_PC_v188.8.131.52,zip. Registered the serial number and installed it onto my iLok. So far so good.
But then I ran the installer. I did a custom install and specified C:\Program Files\Antares Audio Technologies instead of the (x86) directory since it was 64 and I'm running all 64 bit plugins. That's where my Autotune plugin is. Went to Reaper and was rescanning the plugin directories but nothing was showing up. So I went to look in the Antares directory for the plugin and there's nothing that even remotely looks like an executable there. All that's in there is the two PDF documents. Same for the AAX plugin.
I uninstalled, and reran using the full install to see if that was it. Same result. Also used Run as administrator with no go.
I've also tried this on two different machines. A Windows 7/64 and Windows 8/64. Same thing every time.
No wonder you had it on sale so cheap. For 59 bucks all you get is the documentation, I guess...

I am considering to buy Auto-Tune 8 and am running the demo v8.0.6d at the moment which I downloaded last friday.
The AAX plugin works fine but when I try to reopen a session that contains tracks with Auto-Tune 8 instances Pro Tools crashes. When I drag the "Auto-Tune+Time_AAX.aaxplugin" out of the Pro Tools plugin folder in the library and restart Pro Tools the session loads fine.
I also observed that the problem might have something to do with automation of the plugin. I automated the parameters "correction style" and later also tried "master bypass" because I only want Auto-Tune to correct certain notes. Once I remove the automation Pro Tools will start up properly with the Auto-Tune plugin active.
Help is greatly appreciated! I would buy it right away if it wasn't for this issue which makes it pretty unusable for me.

howdy do, ive been having this issue in pro tools for a long time since pro tools 9 and never had it solved. from pro tools 9,10,11, and now 12 so id like to see if anyone has a fix for this issue.
in any session of pro tools i like to use auto tunes audio suite graph mode on audio tracks mainly vox. as im drawing or aligning or rewriting any lines i will completely randomly be presented with oxffffffff error until pro tools shuts down OR i will not get the error but instead just get thrown out of pro tools and it will shut off automatically. sometimes i can get 20 waves processed before this happens and other times it happens on the first line of rewriting. again it bugs out the moment i double click on a rewrite insert not when i am
rendering. this only happens in audio suite but thats all i really like to use this program for. it was like this in auto tune 7 as well as 8 and all its patches so no difference there.
i am set to the correct buffer size for my session and have tried other sizes to. my clock souce is set to internal but it also happens on host.
i am currently using pro tools 12 but this has happens on all pro tools hosts i have worked on.
i have tried this on multiple computers and not just mine but will post my specs anyways.
pro tools 12.

Happy New Year to you all.
Just want to say hi to you all.
I am a record producer.
Sorry to moan to everyone, but I am just not loving life at the moment.
I did an upgrade to AutoTune 8 from 7 and this thing is crashing my sessions and just won't reload any editing work that I have spent the last 5 days doing.
Now I know what Time+Pitch means.
Been getting no help with resolving this issue from Antares, and I have just given up.
What is the point in releasing software that just don't work.
That's why you have alpha and beta testing ("to destruction"!) before you release software to the general public.
I could not use 7 in realtime, which I suppose also made most of you pissed like me, but now I paid for an upgrade, that really should have been free.
This shit don't work either.
As we say in London, someone need's their nads (bollocks)chopped off, or maybe I need to send some of the characters from Guy Ritchie's Snatch over to get the problem fixed Dick Van Dyke style.
Oi Oi apples and pears, how's ya father".
Please please can someone fix this problem for everyone.
(happy customers= Less drama all around)
Once again sorry to everyone for having a moan.
Happy Holidays to you all.

A couple of questions.
1) I see that the newer 64 bit version is not compatible with Windows XP (according to the specs on the product page). When I downloaded the new version from your website, all I received is a single executable file identified as a 64 bit version. What is the solution for older projects that were done under Win XP 32 bit OS and 32 bit recording apps? If I upgrade my iLok with the new 64 bit version will I lose access to the older 32 bit version of Harmony Engine? That's a problem for me. I have literally hundreds of client projects archived here where Harmony Engine was used in some of them (I have no way of knowing how many instances unless I open them all up and inspect them which isn't going to happen). I have to be able to open up archives for clients on occasion and make edits and I'd like to do so knowing that I'm not going to be faced with some goofy technical issue related to this plug-in. I'll probably have to create a dual-boot situation so I can keep Windows XP 32 active at least for a few more years if it turns out that the HE VST won't be compatible with the older version.
2) The user manual that accompanied the new 64 bit version of the Harmony Engine is dated back to 2009 which leads me to believe the product hasn't been updated since then (except for 64 bit support). Is that true? Not a single feature enhancement or improvement to the software in 5 years?
Your latest Auto-tune (7) upgrade provides for continuing iLok access to the last 2 prior versions. That makes sense since the newer version is not compatible with previous versions.
I hope my questions are clear.

I recently downloaded AVOX 4 for evaluation. I am using it as an AU plugin in Logic Pro X (latest version) and MAC OS X Mavericks (latest version).
I am hitting two issues.
Firstly if I set a harmony voice to "U" it should be the exact same pitch as the input signal. But instead it is producing one semitone off, so I have to select -2nd or -1 (depending on harmony mode). So it seems that all notes are off by 1. This makes it pretty much impossible for me to evaluate any of the chord mapping harmonies abilities, since any chord generated is off from the original. Note that I have tried pre-auto-tuning the input signal to perfect pitch but this makes no difference. The harmonies produces are always off by 1 semitone.
Secondly the harmonies do not sound even vaguely formant corrected. So if I set a harmony to be up one octave, the sound produced sounds like Mickey Mouse. I thought that the harmony engine was supposed to automatically adjust formants to make the voice still sound realistic. I know I can play with the throat length settings to compensate for this somewhat, but the manual makes it clear this is intended for changing the timbre of the voice, not for correcting formants, and adjusting throat length without the correct formants still leaves the voice sounding very artificial in most cases.
Without a resolution to these issues I cannot sensibly evaluate the software, and therefore cannot purchase the software - despite the promising demonstration videos.
Any help greatly appreciated.

I purchased Harmony Engine Evo, never received a confirmation email of my purchase. I have spent over an hour trying to figure out how to get the product and install it, since no instructions were given with the purchase. I sent a request to support, but did not receive a reply. No, nothing was sent to spam/junk folder. I received a confirmation email immediately with signing up for the forum? I have an iLok and was able to authorize the product through their process. I eventually went to the download page and downloaded the product, but since I have the latest PACE software, I clicked no for that installation and the install hung up. Had to exit out and restart. Any ideas on where to proceed to get a confirmation of purchase and get this installed?

Hi. I'm debating buying Harmony Engine Evo, so I downloaded the demo version. Only issue is, I can't test it out because I don't have an iLok USB smart key.
I'm not going to buy an iLok for $50 just so I can't TEST OUT a software. How can I test the demo version of Harmony Engine without buying the expensive iLok? I would only want to buy an iLok once I decide that I want to buy Harmony Engine.

I just tried to upgrade my Harmony Engine EVO - Mac VST, from the 32-bit version to the 64-bit version. Prior, to doing so it worked just fine in Ableton Live 32-bit version, but now with the new installer. It only installs a AU and VST3 version. Ableton Live - doesn't support VST3, and for some reason the AU version isn't showing up either. How come the installer didn't install a VST 64-bit version. Either way, I'm not happy because I can no longer use the 32-bit version because I upgraded my iLok license for the 64-bit version. Please, help ASAP!

Hey Guys, from out back australia here.

Which other software applications does everybody use alongside Autotune 8? Whether for music or post-production - for on vocals, to speed up their ADR workflow, deal with difficult conforming situations, reconstitute terrible on-set sounding scenes and utilise a better sounding performance as well as for other general sync, pitch and time purposes?
Melodyne, Izotope RX3, VocALign or Revoice Pro 3?
Some of these Revoice Pro 3 interviews are interesting:

I'm trying to contact support.
I registered at he forum, but am not permitted to start a question in the AT7 forum.
My Apple Logic is not recognizing my AT7 plugin.
I tried downloading the iLok manager again and reinstalling. ilok mgr says my dongle is present and has 3 licenses.
When I start logic, it crosses out the AT7 plugin I have there and says can't use that plugin.
