I have been using Live for about 2 years, and I have a good understanding of how to use the program. I do mash-up stuff mostly, but I recently started getting into the whole producing / recording deal. I figured out that in a past life I was T-Pain, so I downloaded a trial of Antares Autotune Evo 6, and although it does everything I want and is awesome, I can't afford the $400 price tag.
I've been researching and looking through old forum posts, and I think Reaper seems to be the cheapest/best solution for me. However, I downloaded the trial, and I can't figure out how to properly link Ableton and Reaper. I could export vocals from Ableton, import them into Reaper, modify and export them, and then re import them back into Ableton, but that seems like way too much work.
SO - how can I link them up better? Or do you know a better / cheaper / free autotune plug in? Any help or comments are appreciated. Thanks!
