Melodyne 3.1 runs as 'Universal Binary' now also native on Intel Macs, if desired stand-alone or connected via ReWire, VST, AU and RTAS with a host.
Optionally and as an alternative to the procedure to date, the new version can use the iLok dongle for authorisation, making the flexible use of Melodyne on different computers and in different studios possible. Users used to iLok do not have to use another authorisation procedure in parallel.
