When I open an existing project on my mac, I get through most of the loading process, then Melodyne starts loading and crashes at 70% every time. I've updated Melodyne to 5 and Studio One 5 to it's most recent Version. This happened with Studio One 4 too. Is there any solution to this?

I have the same problem. Bought Melodyne 5 Studio and this happens with all my projects now. Still on Studio One 4.6.2

Any solution yet for Studio One 5? Since honestly I am in doubt upgrading with so many crashes happening... (also the whole Soundtoys bundle (original) gives me crashes 50% of the time I use it...

To use Melodyne in Studio One 5, you MUST be upgraded to Melodyne 5.

I am updated to Melodyne 5. I have Melodyne 5 Studio. It still crashes at 70% loading. It happens in projects that I have already tuned the vocals in.

I have exactly the same problem, but with Melodyne 4 Studio. It crashes in both S1 4.5.6 and S1 5. And always after I've started editing.

When i turn off ARA support in preferences it doesn't crash but then i cant use ARA so thats a terrible option. This is obviously a bug, are Presonus aware of it?

Hey. I haven’t gotten an answer yet, but I’ve started selecting all my channels in the mix window and turning all the plugins off (not disabling) with the blue power button before I save and close. It has seemed to work for me every time. When I reopen the session, I just select all tracks again and hit the blue power button again. I know it’s a pain, but it’s better than losing the project... other than that way, I haven’t figured it out

Ok.. This worked for me:

Studio One Folder --> Installer -->  Celemony Melodyne Essential --> Run "Setup" --> Select repair

I ran this and Studio One 5 re launched normally with melodyne functioning properly.

Good Luck!

Same here. I've opened tickets with Presonus and Celemony, but not getting much traction.
