paying again? I just bought it!

I literally just bought Auto-tune like a week or so before I got the “49$ upgrade available” email. I haven’t even had a chance to dive into it before it costs more $$ to use it. I love UA and haven’t had this experience until Auto-tune and I own almost every plugin UA makes…. I’d suggest a grace period or free update for those who’ve purchased within a certain time frame… like almost every other plugin manufacturer. Seems like a lot of folks in this review section feel the same way.

One more step closer to quitting

No X plugin, it's just sth to pay for even when owning AtrsAtTn already. Sad customer .

Already Paid 300€ for Autotune. Which normal Person can afford all that stuff?

Ingiusto pagare per un aggiornamento

Semplicemente ingiusto pagare per un aggiornamento 50€

Don’t let greed ruin UAD…

Come on, UA, you’re better than this. We’ve all spent a ton of money on UAD and Apollo because your plugins are the best and you play fair. I stopped doing business with two major plugin vendors already because they valued the dollar over the customer. Please don’t go there, too. I’ll keep using Melodyne for now.

Does what it's supposed to do, and seems to do it well. Takes a minute to find the best settings for a particular voice and particular song, but it's not difficult -- loop, listen, adjust, done.

Not fair

Just bought it a month ago, not fair that I have to pay more for a simple upgrade. It should be a thank you upgrade for being a loyal customer. I spent thousands in your hardware‼️

Sorry but this isn't a new plugin, it's an update. Customers who paid for Real time should not have to pay again, even at a reduced cost with the voucher.

Another slap in the face for loyal customers, who've invested quite a lot of money in hardware and plugins.

Pasan cosas

Últimamente están pasando unas cosas que antes no ocurrían, UA es una empresa seria..¿Lo es? Creo que la parte comercial está cometiendo errores serios.
Hace poco compré Auto-Tune, lo pagué, y cuando llegó el mensaje de actualización y vi que había que pagar me reí por no llorar. Espero que vayan reflexiones las cosas antes de hacerlas, porque así no.

Easy Peezy

I have a lot of complaints about this plugin being the same or plugin . I would have to pleasantly disagree. I like the ease of use and the presets with this version . I was able to quickly dial in what I needed.

Way better GUI

I wish that it had the extra functions that the native version has. The new GUI is worth it for how much use it gets for me. I hated the old skin and find this one is way better to work with. If nothing is changed under the hood at all, I do agree with others that it's a pretty odd "upgrade"

No brainer!

I use Auto-Tune in nearly every session and commit going in, so $49 for the latest update is well worth it!

Horrible. Crashes my system. No support.

I own the other version and it sounds just as good and doesn't crash every day.

No Thanks

There isn't enough of an improvement to justify charging for the price of the update. Feels a bit like a slap in the face for Realtime owners.

I'll give benefit of the doubt and assume the charge has to do with Antares' greed moreso than UA's. All in all, it's. no for me, and I'll be rooting with my fingers crossed for better practices in the future that favor existing customers.

Fed up

I'm tired of people crying. No one is forcing you to buy.
You are incapable of doing anything other than buying everything your life because you are incapable of succeeding otherwise and you want to tell me that everything must remain free for you customers who do not have the capacity to make money? UAD works hard for you, so that with just one click you get the professional result and you are not even able to pay 50€? I thank UAD for their crazy work and I support them and I will pay to thank them instead of crying every time. Please, UAD don't let yourself be fooled, the genes that cry are not objective.

All these people adore you, but are unable to admit that you are the best. Personally, I have never seen you incorrect, it's normal to give you a bit of effort to make you exist because no one, I repeat, no one does what you do!

Thank you for your offer that you made to me, because I don't see anything negative objectively. I will happily buy your plugins because you are the best!!!

Just bought Auto-Tune Realtime Advanced a few weeks back and I'm disappointed that the product was just changed from one day to another and they expect us to pay more for it when it's basically the same thing.

Acquistato un mese fa e adesso mi chiedete 54 euro per aggiornare.

Universal Audio continua con le sue pessime politiche. Basti pensare che la Ultimate viene venduta allo stesso prezzo sia per chi non ha nessun plugin, sia per chi come me ha il 90% dei plugin venduti da UAD.

Continua questa voglia di accaparrarsi nuovi clienti a discapito di quelli vecchi... mah
