Hi.

Welcome to my blog. I document my adventures in travel, style, and food. Hope you have a nice stay!

Ode to Auto-Tune

Back in the day, if you couldn't sing on pitch you probably wouldn't make it as a professional vocalist. But that was then. Today we live in a future of Poop-Freeze, the Hollywood Cookie Diet, and Auto-Tune. Since 1997, Auto-Tune has been correcting pitch so musicians no longer have to. The side effect is a vaguely (or less vaguely, depending on the artist) robotic vocal sound (think K-Ci and JoJo's "All My Life," or Cher's "Believe"). Audio engineering blog Hometracked published a list of 10 great examples of Auto-Tune abuse in pop songs, including:

  • Uncle Kracker - Follow Me
  • Maroon 5 - She Will Be Loved
  • Rascal Flatts - Life is a Highway

Below is my take, set to some light music, on the issue of Auto-Tune. I hope you enjoy it:
