Did you wake up this morning thinking “****! I wish there were more AutoTuned vocals in this world!”
If so, today is your lucky day.
iZotope and T-Pain have announced The T-Pain Effect, a collection of music making tools designed to let anyone make music.
“When I teamed up with iZotope my goal was to bring people a quality audio tool that produces quality sound,” says T-Pain. “iZotope’s knowledge of audio technology really impressed me and I knew they were the right team to partner with. This is the technology I use on my own records. I wouldn’t put my name on anything I didn’t stand by, and you can hear it on my records.”
The T-Pain Effect centers on The T-Pain Engine, a beat-making and vocal recording application for PC and Mac. It offers over 50 song templates, comprised of hundreds of ‘T-Pain approved’ beats.
With the backing track in place, users can then sing, rap, or speak on one or two vocal tracks to record a song with ease. Beats and song arrangements can be customized and vocals can be edited, including punch-in recording for retakes
And, guess what? Users can add The T-Pain Effect to the vocal tracks immediately upload the complete song to SoundCloud.
In addition to the standalone T-Pain Engine, the product includes a VST, AU, and RTAS plug-in version of The T-Pain Effect for use with digital audio workstations (DAWs) such as Pro Tools, GarageBand, Cubase, SONAR and Logic. The plug-in includes real-time monitoring through the host program, hardness/softness controls for dialing in the sound, and scale presets to match the key of a song. Advanced users can also create their own scale presets using the built-in keyboard or a MIDI controller.
The product also includes iDrum: T-Pain Edition, a virtual drum machine that includes hundreds of custom beats of different musical genres, with over 50 T-Pain iDrum kits. Used as a standalone application or a plug-in, users can arrange beats into songs, create new kits and patterns, import their own samples, and edit samples with effects like pitch, filter, and decay. iDrum T-Pain Edition is fully compatible with other content from iZotope’s various iDrum titles.
The T-Pain Effect for Windows and Mac (VST/AU/RTAS/MAS/DX/Standalone) is available to purchase for US $99.
