LOL... How about making a plugin that does this? :-D

Or at least the reverse of that... :mrgreen:

No way they could ever realize a plugin that would correct the voice of a singer while singing!

I mean, imagine the horror of puppets that can't sing but look good, making producers rich and the music poor! No way that will ever happen!

And what if the singer is that bad that even the plugin wouldn't be able to correct without being noticed? Would they try to sell it as a new voice effect then?

Who would be so naive to still buy such crap, music with bad singers so prominent that it hurts your ears? No, that won't ever happen.

Besides, what would you call such an automatic voice tuning? Autotune? How boring would such a name be. Definitely no success...

That reminds me an interview with the developer of Melodyne. Originally the tool wasn't meant for pitch correction, but rather for experimentation with melody (understand: changing melody of the recorded parts, making harmonies, etc. ). Well, anyone heard it used in such way? :lol:

As for the T-pain effect (when autotune is set so extremely it snap's the pitch to scale instantaneously), I rather think of it as an instrument (in the same category as vocoder) than an effect. Crappy singer will stay crappy, but good singer can learn to do some very crazy things with it. For example if a singer sings a vibrato exactly on border of two semitones, it can create very cool trill. That's arguably even harder than normal singing, because technically you have to sing perfectly out of tune. Basically, I thought autotune was just crappy singing until I tried to do that kind of things with it.

As for music with bad singers... The way I see it, the ratio of good/bad singers stays the same, only the way to recognize the bad one's changed. Like with everything, to find gold you need to dig deeper.
