    1. Oh well. You seem to know it all. Like f.e. When you are a professional singer and the monitoring is just shitty and you cant hear yourself, autotune can save the gig. Or the singers voice is sick due to health issues, its there to support you. Next great usage is for vocal harmonies – pitch + tune… One man’s poison..

      1. or I have used autotune to make textural elements by pitching up octaves and gender/tambre with reverb added to it, you can create strange alien sounding backgrounds – also will use on tts engines to create melodic robot voices.

        1. Same here. I have an original Antares rack mount I use for weird stuff.

          The current offerings are very useful for repair. I just don’t dig the pop vocal wet with it.

    2. It’s worth comparing to a compressor. Compression is also a plague to the music industry (a la loudness wars). But it isn’t compression that is the issue, it’s the overuse or misuse that causes it to take away from the punch and dynamics of the music. Similarly, using pitch automation can allow an artist to realize their ideal. Yes, there are plenty of times when you want the vocal to be HUMAN- and no pitch correction is necessary. And, even though not every singer is Whitney Houston– most probably don’t need pitch correction. That said, it’s no crime to correct little bits that need correcting, or to create an impeccable track– if that’s what is wanted.

      Using pitch automation as a special effect, or even an idea tool is fine. Take some weird random sounds (like birds or machines, or whatever) and constrain them to a cool custom scale– that’s interesting fodder.

    3. Wow; really? There are so many ways to use this as just another cool sound manipulation tool.
      Oh wait, I was doing that all morning and having a blast.

    4. I hear ya, it’s best if you just find a way to get over it, you’ll sleep better. I do. It’s here to stay. It’ll help a lot of people learn to sing better that want to. And as for The others who are avoiding the hard work it takes to sing well, well, if you can tell that they use it, and it still bothers you, don’t buy their stuff.

  1. No, it’s different from a compressor or a standard tool.
    I support the “plague” theory because it allowed to sing (and being in the chart…) people that dont know how to do it properly. Lowering and boringly standardize the overall quality of the musical product in the whole world.

  2. I’ve bought it and it’s really disappointing how bad it’s sounding.. I mean if you do something do it good, bring something new to the table Or stay home
