Cant get Melodyne ARA to work..no extensions

Same problem here. Extensions don’t appear in the menu…:frowning:

Guys. Try moving your melodyne.vst3 to Program Files/Common Files/VST3/Celemony/Melodyne. You’ll probably need to create a new “Melodyne” folder if it doesn’t already exist.

My VST3 is in this exact location. Melodyne is showing up in the system component Information window with a tick next to it.

However - no “extension” option at the top of the audio editing window. however, I can select the audio in the project window go to the menu at the top “audio / extensions” and then select it from there.

Is that the right way of doing it? I thought an extension option would appear like in this picture:

Yep audio/extensions is the way to access it. Also via ctrl/right click on the part.

That’s what you get in the info line after you apply an extension to the selected event.

I’ve tried all the solutions recommended above and none of them work. I can’t find the “extensions” feature anywhere.

Do you have this option as detailed here?

Great thanks. Hadn’t spotted that :slight_smile:

No, I don’t have the “extensions” feature. It doesn’t show in audio menu. I’m using C10.0.40 64bit

What version of melodyne are you running?

If you go to the system component information window and select the extensions tab

, is melodyne listed there with a tick next to it?

There’s no extensions tab in system component information. I only found these tabs; midi plugins, audio-codec plugins, program plugins project import-export plugins and virtual file system plugins. No extensions.

Ah ok. Not sure what’s happening there. Might be worth reinstalling melodyne and see what happens.

What version / type of melodyne are you running?

I reinstalled melodyne and still no luck. I’m running the latest version of melodyne studio, checked for new updates and it says I’m running the latest version which is 4.2.3.001 (64bit).

In what folder is your melodyne.vst3 located? This is critical, if it’s not in the correct folder (Program Files/Common Files/VST3/Celemony/Melodyne) then cubase won’t see it on your system.

I think in this case is not problem with Melodyne. The real problem is that NO “Extensions” Tab apears in the menu. We can not find Word “extensions” in our Cubase 10.0.30 and 10.0.40.Thats the problem. Thank You all for help

I’m having the same issue. No ‘Extensions’ tab, but I found Melodyne in VST Plug-ins and I can insert it into a track which is of course useless but there is no way I can open it as an Audio editor. I hope someone has an answer. I’m on C10 10.0.4 and Melodyne 4.2.3

Same problem here, no extensions tab in system components nor in audio menu. Reinstalled many times… still nothing. I bought melodyne for nothing :frowning:

I think we should all contact support at the same time because this thread is now over 2 weeks old and it’s not yielding fruits.

A lot of ‘noise’ in here and I’m not going to read it all! But I had the exact same issue as described here? But I was able to fix doing this:

Make sure you have Cubase v10.0.40 and Melodyne v4.2.3 installed! These versions are important because earlier versions may not work!?

By default Melodyne installs here: C:\Program Files\Common Files\VST3\Celemony\Melodyne.vst3
But for some reason Cubase won’t add it as an extension while it’s there?

In order for Cubase to see it as an extension you need to do this:

  1. Go to c:\Program Files\Common Files\VST3\Celemony\
  2. Create directory ‘Melodyne’.
  3. So now you should have c:\Program Files\Common Files\VST3\Celemony\Melodyne\ right?
  4. Now ‘move’ (don’t copy!) your ‘Melodyne.vst3’ to this directory.
  5. So now you should have this path? c:\Program Files\Common Files\VST3\Celemony\Melodyne\Melodyne.vst3
  6. Again! Make sure you didn’t just copy it and that ‘Melodyne.vst3’ only exists in the above path!

Now start Cubase and you should now see the extension under the audio menu?
