Antares Auto-Tune 4 Used Value Question
I am an owner of Antares Auto-Tune 4 (for MAC) and recently purchased an upgrade to Auto-Tune 5.

I have an interesting qusetion abot AT 4, however. What would the current used value of Auto-Tune 4 be? I know it was introduced in 2003/2004 and retailed for $325. Is it safe to say that it would not hold that value today since 1) Auto-Tune 5 is the new standard and 2) it may not be compatible with new opearting systems?

Without going into too much, I need this information for personal reasons. I have checked ebay and craiglist but AutoTune 5 is all I seem to find. Wondering if anyone can share some information/opinions?

TBH, the resale value of software is usually very low. Particularly so when upgrades are needed to ensure compatibility with current systems.

For example, I recently advertised a Maxim iLok license on eBay. Here in the UK, it retails new at GBP £288. I couldn't shift it at any price ! ! !

You might be lucky and find someone who wants v4 for a legacy system. However, with the rise in popularity of Melodyne, it's not going to be an easy ride and the value will reflect this.
