[6] Studio One 5: Installing 3rd Party Content (Celemony Melodyne Essential)

We have partnered with third-party software manufacturer Celemony to bring you one of the best tools for production work in the business. The following will guide you through installing and authorizing Celemony Melodyne.



  1. To use Melodyne in Studio One 5, you MUST be upgraded to Melodyne 5. 
  2. The Melodyne key that was used for Studio One 2, 3 and 4 Professional will transfer and be usable automatically with Studio One 5 Professional's integration with Celemony. There is no need to claim and install a new Melodyne Key if you're upgrading from previous Studio One Professional versions to Studio One 5 Pro. For all others, please continue reading.
  3. If you are running an M1 mac, Melodyne now supports M1 in Native Mode, but you will need to update Melodyne to version 5.2, which is a free update for all Melodyne 5 owners.
