Auto-Tune Artist (version 9.x.x) is the compatible upgrade to Auto-Tune Live (version 1.2.0). This means the Auto-Tune Artist installation replaces previous installations of Auto-Tune Live, and Auto-Tune Artist will successfully load Auto-Tune Live settings and automation data saved in your project files.

Important: Even though Auto-Tune Artist can load settings saved with Auto-Tune Live, Auto-Tune Live cannot load settings saved with Auto-Tune Artist (i.e. Auto-Tune Artist is backward compatible with Auto-Tune Live, but Auto-Tune Live is not forward compatible with Auto-Tune Artist).

Recommended tip: If you wish to keep original backup copies of projects that used Auto-Tune Live, be sure to “Save As…” these project files to create a copy before or immediately after installing Auto-Tune Artist. Doing this will allow you to keep an original copy of your work with Auto-Tune Live in case you need to access it later with Auto-Tune Live instead of Auto-Tune Artist.

If you’re upgrading to Auto-Tune Artist from a version of Auto-Tune Live that’s older than the last version 1.2.0 (e.g. the old RTAS version 1.0.1), see this article.
