So what is Melodyne? Melodyne is an audio pitch correction tool, also known as a voice equalizer, similar to AutoTune. However, if Autotune is adjusted automatically, in Melodyne you have to adjust it manually.
Melodyne was created by Celebration Software GmbH, a German music software company.
What is ARA Extension or Audio Processing? It is also a plugin but allows you to upload all audio files to the timeline for editing.
On Cubase, to use this feature, select the audio file you want to edit, go to the menu Audio > Extensions > Melodyne.
On Studio One, right-click on the audio file you want to adjust, select Audio -> Edit with Melodyne at Audio Processing.

Melodyne is a powerful pitch and vocal tuning tool used by professional studios, because it’s manual software, so to use it you must have some vocal knowledge or at least must hear the difference in the lyrics.
There are a lot of good and complete tutorial channels on Youtube, so I won’t make a tutorial for this part, you can find out by yourself. Good luck!
