Just wanted to confirm that the same process works in OSX. (In my case for Melodyne Editor 2).

When I removed the component version from /Library/Audio/Plug-Ins/Components, (and I'd check for a vst in /Library/Audio/Plug-Ins/VST as well) leaving only the VST3 version in /Library/Audio/Plug-Ins/VST3, everything is working fine in T7.

I have timing issues when using Melodyne Essential 4 in T7 (Mac) loading as the original post gives as a "Tip". As the aglorithm. It works great as a plugin and using the transfer switch etc. What am I missing or doing wrong here ?

Could it be that melodyne is detecting a different tempo to the daw (T7) and behaving accordingly (when used as the time stretching algorithm).

Change the tempo (in melodyne) by clicking in the tempo options box (picture of chains in the tool bar area) and choose the option "use the tempo grid from the daw" or "set constant tempo grid".

This solved my problem when i did not understand why the vocals were falling behind. This was in melodyne studio 4 on a mac.

Awesome...that fixed it..appreciate the reply ! Just for the record and for others who might stumble upon this issue. It the version of Melodyne Essential that came as part of purchasing T7, click the Tempo options button just to the left of the tool buttons and the menu will pop up. By default it is set to "Use the tempo grid detected by Melodyne". Odd though, The track I was working n had three vocal tracks and after changing two of them,the third came up correctly set to "Use tempo grid from the DAW". Also, after making the change the button becomes inactive and unless you remove Melodyne and reinsert you can't change the option again, not that you would need to...just thought I would mention it. Regardless, I will be sure to check it on every track I apply it to in the future.

Thanx again !

Tried copying/duplicating tracks with Melodyne enabled on them, but the copied/duped tracks don't show the edits I made; had to go back and redo the same pitch editing process on the duped tracks. Anyone know a solution?

The track has to be rendered first. Melodyne is basically just an effect applied to the track, so when exported before being rendered it will be just the dry track. At least that has been my experience with it. You can open Melodyne in stand alone mode, import the audio and apply the correction. Then there is no need to use Melodyne in your session on that track. I usually do it this way when I have a ton of plugins on a particular session..helps to save cpu processing power.

I don't know if anybody else has had this particular problem, but...

My music computer died and I had to get a new one, so I had to reinstall Tracktion and my copy of Melodyne Studio, as well as everything else. Once I did, I found that the Melodyne plugin would not display properly. I couldn't see the full window under any circumstances; specifically, the zoom and scrolling controls on the bottom and the right could not be accessed. However, the standalone Melodyne was fine.

I tried disabling/re-enabling display scaling; didn't help. The one thing that worked was to right-click the Tracktion executable, go to Compatibility, and run it in Windows 7 compatibility mode (I also checked "Run as administrator," though that might not have been necessary.) Having done this, I could now see the full plugin window, though the type in the plugin was pretty small.

FWIW, I'm running Windows 10 Pro 64-bit with Tracktion 7.2.1 64-bit on a 3840 by 2160 display.

I may be the only person with this issue, but if I'm not, here's something to try before you tear all your hair out.
Win10 Pro 64, Clevo P750DM3, i7-7700, 32GB, nVidia GTX1060, 500GB/500GB/1TB SSD, PreSonus Quantum 2 Thunderbolt, Waveform 10
