Auto-Tune is perhaps the most famous pitch-correction programme in the world. So much so that it’s now part of popular culture. Everyone seems to know (or has heard of at some point) the phrase “auto-tune”. It is undeniably a very powerful software which continues to play an important role in the music industry.
Some of us use it frequently but always prefer the ‘graphic mode’ which is a more precise and better way to achieve natural results. Its interface is quite straightforward making it very easy to use. You can achieve fast results (depending on the genre) by setting up the key signature and adjusting the ‘retune speed’. There are five modes to choose from (Soprano, Alto/Tenor, Low Male Voice, Instrument, Bass instrument). From our experience, the Alto/Tenor mode performs best for most requirements and the retune speed is best left on its default setting. It’s a great tuning programme and it comes highly recommended.
- Quick results and very easy to use (you can get the infamous ‘auto-tune’ effect in seconds)
- The ‘Graphic Mode’ feature is brilliant for advanced tuning
- It’s a straightforward programme. It does one thing very well.
- It has a clean interface with extra functions for creative experimentation
- The Auto-Tune algorithm has been known to leave behind certain unwanted arteffects in the sound (it can also sound small/thin at times)
- There are limitations. For example, multitrack capability does not exist; it’s strictly monophonic so you’re limited to one voice (i.e. flute, single vocal, etc)
Who should buy this product?
- You have the cash and it won’t break the bank.
- You see this as a long-term investment — either as a studio owner or vocal producer.
- You’re a professional vocalist/musician or music producer who’s tired of spending countless dollars on studio fees!
Who should not buy this product?
- If you’re just looking for a quick ‘tuning solution’ but can’t afford Auto-Tune we would recommend using the inbuilt tuning software of your DAW. Logic, Cubase, Ableton, etc all have their own tuners and, for the most part, sound great and get the job done!
- If you’re hoping to tune polyphonic instruments.
