Melodyne: Not working in macOS

This article is for issues when a previously installed Melodyne is not able to be used in Studio One. 


Also, if you upgraded from Melodyne Essentials to Melodyne Editor/Studio and Essentials is still showing, this article will help. 

Otherwise, please follow the steps below: 

1. Uninstall Melodyne from the macOS Applications folder using the Melodyne uninstaller. At this point do not reinstall Melodyne. Don't press install Melodyne from Studio One.

2. Open Studio One and check to see if you can add Melodyne to a track. If you can, close Studio One, look in your VST/AU folders, and delete the Melodyne plug-in file.

macOS plugin locations:

  • Macintosh HD:/Library/Audio/Plug-Ins/Components/ (= AU Plug-ins)
  • Macintosh HD:/Library/Audio/Plug-Ins/VST/ (= VST Plug-ins)
  • Macintosh HD:/Library/Audio/Plug-Ins/VST3/ (= VST3 Plug-ins)
  • Also, if you have custom plugin directories, check those and remove the Melodyne plugin files. 

3. Make sure all traces of Melodyne are removed from the computer. 

4. Go to your account, login and download the version of Melodyne you have registered and reinstall.

  • Melodyne has to be activated in Stand Alone mode, it can not be activated from within Studio One. This means, close Studio One, browse to the folder where Melodyne is installed. Launch Melodyne from this folder, and follow the on screen activation instructions.

5. Open Studio One to scan. Also, make sure Studio One is rescanning the plugins. In Studio One > View > Plugin manager, press the Remove Plug-in Settings button and the Update Plug-ins button list.
