I have been trying to find out the answer to this for some time with no luck. I still believe there is some way to do it, but I could be wrong.
Anyone out there know?!

While AutoTune does allow MIDI input, it doesn't work like a vocoder. Your MIDI notes are used to define the allowable pitches. So, if you simultaneously play C, D, and E on your keyboard, then AutoTune will choose the best match from those pitches. Here's a good tutorial video on how it all works:
You may already know this stuff, but I bring it up because I don't like AutoTune's MIDI capabilities. Melodyne provides more control over each note, in addition to a phenomenal time-stretching engine.
To answer your question about the MIDI routing:
- Load AutoTune on your Audio Track.
- Create a new MIDI track.
- Assign the output of that MIDI track to AutoTune's MIDI input. The animated image below shows where the MIDI output is located:
Note: The image above is from another tutorial. But, it does a good job of showing where the MIDI routing controls are located on a MIDI track. You will need to find them on your MIDI track, and then set the output to go to the AutoTune audio track.
- Turn on MIDI targetting in AutoTune.
- Arm your MIDI track
- Play your song
- Play some notes on your keyboard. (Play monophonically for the most dramatic results).
