It seems verrrry similar in the way it works to Izotope' Nectar's Harmonize section (this is V2);

For vocals primarily, but nothing to stop you using it on geetar (I have done before) or indeed anything.

Oh, and MUnison as above is very good too, if not quite with the same amount of control options.

Yeah nectar was my fav harmonizer before going melda - it also has MIDI input so you can harmonize stuff on the fly (but i think that’s V3)

What's wrong with iLok?
Never had any problem with it...

Indeed.

There seems to be a fair amount of anti-ilok feeling around, but I'm never sure why. Obviously in an ideal world there would be no copy protection, but since there is copy protection I'm not sure why ilok is any worse than Waves or Izotope or whatever. Works fine, doesn't get between me and my recording...

There are certainly enough valid reasos for not wanting to have to deal with iLok...

Well I just tried to update iLok Licence Manager and it froze my PC, so yeah, that got between ma and my recording. This is not the first time one of their updates has done this, which is why I made a restore point. Just as well. So far PACE have been unable to sort my issue, so yeah, I can understand people's reluctance.

Well for me personally it’s what is holding back M1 native support for many devs. No response no statement from them, simply silence.
