I currently have melodyne essential which came with my protools setup. I'm wanting to upgrade to something, either cre8, or plugin. Cre8 gives the option of doing many tracks at once giving the benefit of making harmonies without worrying about using the plugin on multiple tracks like you would have to with melodyne plugin. Does this use up a lot of processing power (using melodyne plugin on a few tracks)? Also for a limited time you get a free upgrade to melodyne plugin 2 which has some extra stuff and it has direct note acces which i'm dying to use. I'm also trying to find out if it will work with my protools academic version and I cannot find an answer to this.
