Celemony Melodyne 4 essential
Melodyne is a tool used by the masses. It's the most intuitive and accurate way to properly tune a vocal. Now on offer at just €49 for Melodyne 4 essential.
VocAlign Project 3
VocAlign will save you so much time when editing layered vocals, you'll wonder how you've worked for so long without it. VocAlign takes just seconds to align two audio signals so that the timing of one matches the other perfectly. Now on offer at only €79 for VocAlign Project 3.
Antares Auto-Tune Access
Antares has long been known for its 'T Pain' style vocal tuning. If you're after this effect then look no further. Although this is the baseline plugin, Auto-Tune Access provides serious versatility when it comes to real-time vocal tuning. It's also super-low latency for tracking. For a quick no-compromise approach we'd highly recommend having it in your arsenal of vocal processors. Now reduced to €90 for the black weekend.
PreSonus Studio One Artist

Melodyne comes free with all editions of studio one, saving you the additional cost of purchasing a license.
