Readers please disregard this article. I don’t care if its Hip Hop, or R&B it seems like some people just love auto tune. Should you auto-tune? Or should you not? Who cares! Lets talk about all you music lovers out there who are major players in the industry. They use auto-tune on their vocals. They use technology. They use a program that makes vocals sound better. The program corrects their voice and it sounds great to record labels they get signed you know how it goes. Anyways, when Kanye West uses AUTO TUNE it SUCKS and we hate the sound. Absolutely hate it. When the user creates to much special effects to make the sound better it sounds brilliant, but Something about X-Fasctor and Demi Lovato ,ultimately who cares. The music industry sucks. Deal with it. whatever. lets do music based sound instead based on sound and not money on itunes and Justin Bieber holding a baby over a balcony and Michael Jackson spitting on a woman’s face. Music Producers don’t care about that kind of thing. They understand that you have a magnificent voice and they are willing to spend 5000 hours doing whatever you want. If you stink, they will try to make it not stink. I’m sure Kevin Garrett did at least 1 or 2 takes. Miley Cyrus is showing her underwear to the paparazzi and when she came into the studio nobody cares. They all proved they could really sing because thier voice was strong and they believed in herself. The end. Talk to the engineer about what you want in the recording studio and you should get it. Nobody has to have it. You don’t have to be a robot if you don’t want to. But someday, maybe people will wonder what the people sounded like behind the robots. People trying to sing but can’t cuz they stink. And that’ll be you if you suck and use auto-tune too much. We auto-tune everything, even the drums.
