Just wanted to know if this is legal or possible, since Studio One PRO comes with melodyne bundled with it.


I bought my license from someone else, but he said he was going to keep melodyne.


The license still show up in my presonus account, I tried to install it but it says at celemony's website that it's already registered.


I contacted them and they said they can do nothing, that I have to buy a separate license for melodyne essentials.


Does anyone know how should I proceed?

While its true Professional comes with an Essential version of Melodyne unfortunately once it's registered at Celomony it's up to the original registrant to transfer that license. I don't believe a license transfer of Professional would grant the purchaser a free and separate key other than the one that came with the original purchase.

Was this a condition of the sale? did you know the seller was going to keep it? and was the price of the transfer adjusted as such?

I guess it's one of the pitfalls of these type of transactions and why I prefer to purchase brand new and original.

PreSonus only transfers their own software. Any bundled software must be transferred by that company. If he did not release it, there is nothing PreSonus can do about it.

Melodyne is part of a full purchase of Studio One. Transfers are a whole different beast. See this for other transfer information:

Hey guys, thx for the inputs.

Yeah, this is not anyones fault besides mine, at the time I did the deal I didn't gave this much attention, I didn't even know what melodyne was...


Celemony replied to me like "IF YOU WANNA USE IT, BUY IT, YOUR FAULT. PERIOD." kind of thing...


They didn't even try to talk or anything, was really rude and I got really pissed off.

Celemony if you are reading this, just wanted to tell you that, because of your rude treatment, now I have the editor version fully working with S1, just needed to "search" a little bit, cheers

I really hope that line didn't mean that you helped yourself to a free version. Things like that don't play very well here, and a poor impression of a company's tech support doesn't give anyone the right to steal intellectual property.

Just because the service manager at the local dealership is a d-bag doesn't mean I can help myself to a car because I was able to google how to pick a lock.

What Matt said. I wouldn't go bragging that you stole software.

This reminds me of the "guy in a balloon asking for directions" story. Somehow your buyer's remorse became Celemony's fault, and because they didn't want to give a price break to a random caller, you'll go online and bash them for it, and "search" for a way to stick it to them.

I find it ironic that someone that feels no remorse for taking software is on a message board complaining that they got ripped off.
