All-in-1 package for music editing that includes features like Auto-Tune and Melodyne?

I'm setting up a musician studio for the first time. I have been useing Windows Audacity for awhile now and like it generally but find myself needing additional plugins like Auto-Tune, Melodyne and VocAlign.

Is there one program I can download out there that has all of this included so-as I don't have to hunt down all these programs?

Auto-Tune, Melodyne and VocAlign are all commercial products, there isn't a legal free download that will include them.

As an asside, you might want to check out Reaper. It's a very solid DAW, far superior to Audacity for setting up a home studio. Theres a full featured (non-expired) 30-day demo, and a license is dirt cheap if you find you like it.

Youll want a real daw like logic, ableton or cubase. They don't have all those plug ins, but they all have a lot of similar features built in. Melodyne and autotune, though are heavily based on patented technology so they are pretty much your only option if you need those features exactly.

You've already spent $1000 in your question, what's your budget beyond that?

You're basically talking about a choice between sequencers and audio editors. Acid/Reaper is a little of both. Regardless, they're pretty much just shells for whatever plugins and functionality you prefer.

Reaper comes with a whole slew of plugins, including its own ReaTune plug-in. It's exceedingly generous trail terms (completely un-knobbled for 30 days, with only a nag screen after that) and it's realistic price ($50 at the moment) mean you really ought to give it a go.

(@rhizome: Reaper and Acid are pretty different beasts, and really shouldn't be "slashed" together like that. Reaper is a fully-functional DAW which competes in terms of functionality with the likes of Cubase and Sonar.)

Only since Reaper got MIDI, but it looks like both of them have changed since I used them, and Acid has some other features as well. Mea Culpa, but I stand by my assertion that they straddle a (blurred) line between audio-clip arrangement and MIDI.
