It's come to the point where my songs are needing vocals and so I have purchased autotune in hopes that it will ease my nontalented singing. The only problem is that I know little of how to use it? does anyone have a good link to any online tutorials, because all i really know what to do with it so far is use the autocorrect function which doesn't seem to be doing a hell of a lot. OH! and I also found how to make t-pains voice..not particularly useful though. Anyone who could give me a hand at where to start would be nice!

Its been a while since I looked at Autotune, but there is a manual mode you can use. you have to lpay the entire file into autotune, then it gives you access to the individual noters and you can change them around.

Yes, I use melodyne now and I prefer it to autotune. It is a little clunkier to get working but does a better and easier job in the end.

Yeah, I agree with Andrew.
You could do great with the Autotune, but I think Melodyne is even better once you know how to use it.

Couple of tutorials here and here. Don't know if they're any good as I haven't had a look.

Like Andrew and Marcus I tend to use Melodyne much more - as Marcus says once you get used to Melodyne it, to me, is more flexible.

Cheers,
Tony

Definitely - from my perspective I try hard NOT to use any pitch correction - you will end up with a better result if you take the time to record it properly in the first place. Now of course that's not always possible for a wide variety of reasons, so thats when Melodyne comes to the fore, but for me it is always a second option.

I use autotune and it works good for me. However some people said me that Melodyne was better... What are the advantages of melodyne?

I find it easier to work with - the interface seems more intuitive to me, I guess the results are similar though.

Melodynes latest allows you to tune polyphonic material as well - I am sure Autotune will catch up with that at some stage though.

I have a general question about those pitch correction tools.
Are they used a lot in studios to correct pitch problems? Is it something like a standard routine to use in the final mix like adding reverb and delay or is it more like a secret weapon to fix mistakes?

Well I guess its standard to use pitch tools to fine tune stuff around in studios..Its is well known how "they fix" some singers in final mix that way smile.gif

I would also add that Antares/Melodyne are also used not just for pitch/timing correction but also for formant shifts. Formant being the perceived quality/character of the sound - you can change a formant to make a voice sound like a metallic robot, an adult sound like a child and so on - it's a little bit like vocoding. A good example of it was the Cher record 'Do you believe in love'.

As to whether or not pitch/timing corrections should be done - well before stuff like Antares pro studios would often use a session singer to track the vocals and replace/mask. An example of this is Jam and Lewis used Lisa Loeb (I think) to provide the female backing to some of the Human League's USA recordings because the two women in the group couldn't pitch it accurately enough.

One thing maybe worth a mention - although Antares/Melodyne etc are great for correction what they can't put in is soul and feel. To me that is what helps make a great vocalist Great and why they'll always be first call in a studio - feel and soul is needed to give the humanity and warmth to a vocal smile.gif .

Cheers,
Tony

I know 3 good pitch softwares:

Waves Tone
Autotune 5
Melodyne

Waves Tone is similar to Autotune 5. It works great and it's easy to use. Not real-time.

Autotune 5 is good because it's real-time and a good plugin to "train" your pitch control.
You can loop your verse part and sing while looking at the "keyboard notes" too see if you
are in tune... hopefully you hear it too but it's actually good help to "see it" as well.

Melodyne is a plugin you use after you finished your vocal track. You play the whole song
and after that Melodyne process the data and you can then edit every note. Of course every
software have "quick buttons" so you can tell the program to fix like 90% of the bad notes.
Too good is not good because it takes away the feeling in the voice... if you know what I mean...

I use these softwares to see how much out of tune I am if it sounds really bad. I don't use
these softwares to fix my big mistakes. I resing those parts. If it's a good verse take with
minor misses I use pitch correction if I don't manage to sing a complete better retake.

Anyway, if you have any questions about the 3 plugins above just PM or post!
