Auto-tune

This entry goes out to the folks at “Auto-Tune the News” (http://www.youtube.com/user/schmoyoho). If you haven’t seen these videos, then you are missing out on some of the best stuff that the internet has to offer.

So at this point, Auto-tune has almost become a dirty word in the music community. No one really takes artists like T-Pain seriously because we know that everything is done on computers. On a side note, whenever I hear the name, T-Pain, I think of Thomas Paine the 18th century pamphleteer and author of “Common Sense”. I wonder what “Common Sense” would sound like if it were read with Auto-tune… But I digress. Auto-tune itself is CRAZY! For those of you who have never used it, basically you enter in what key the song is in, tweak some knobs, and it automatically fixes all of your singing mistakes. There was a day when people actually had to spend time learning how to sing, but now technology has made it possible for ANYONE to sound awesome. So, hats off to you Antares for making the single most influential piece of musical software of the past decade and for making us all think that Paris Hilton is actually able to sing.
