i'm sorry, but autotune effects are kind of fun...

Post by mikemc » Sat Jun 26, 2010 4:29 pm

It is bad if you use it as a crutch because you can't sing-- you really get the best out of it when you can sing-- and yes, at some point the overused warbly effect may go the way of the talkbox-with-mouthtube...

but it is fun, and there are at least a couple of free VSTs that do the stupider stuff very ably.

well, maybe wrong in that the warbly effect will plague us widely and eternally, unlike the talkbox.

but, nah, it can be fun... and like anything else it can also get boring. It also 'auto-pidgeonholes' whatever it gets used on.

But you should be able to sing first.

the talkbox is supafresh though. Fuckin instant porno dope.

The auto-tune warbly thing is the aural equivalent to AIDS, always will be. Whether it's overplayed or rarely heard it will always be aural AIDS.

and just like AIDS was invented by the CIA, autotune is created by forces of corporate evil who's goal is our collective demise and the tainting of our recreational enterprises.

ok, i agree-- was referring to the place it held in the long-ago mainstream pop music, not its place in the current milieu.

basically mike, by posting links to warbly autotune tools you're the music production equivalent of those voodoo subscribing south africans who fuck babies in a vein attempt at curing themselves of AIDS.

that's how wrong you are.


please delete the links from your original post, if there's any love left in your heart.

Very few things make me want to barf or committ murder as does this wave of autotuned R&B songs. Truely nauseating.

Just sayin'. :evil:
