No apologies needed--it was just a general comment... Smile

Tools like autotune used sparingly to save an awesome performance is something I do whenever needed...using it on an out of tune, mediocre singer renders an in tune, mediocre singer... Smile And if I was mixing a killer steel solo and it had one note that needed a little love, no problem Smile

Melodyne and Autotune work if you know how to use them.

For steel maybe use the chromatic setting and finesse the amount of effect.

Again, best to re-record the out of tune part if you can during tracking because fixing in edit/mix might use more time, be more problematic, than re-doing.

I am a big fan of Melodyne! It allows late fixes and saves many hours in the studio. Here's two real life situations Melodyne fixed. First was a drop out in a vocal track that wasnt caught until the singer was long gone, unable to return for weeks. I stretched the begining of the gap forward and the end of the gap back and there was no audible indication of the fix. The second was an ending guitar 6 note arpeggio that had three really flat notes in it that the engineer thought he could fix with Antares. I happened to stop by the studio, walked in to an engineer head in hands, as the master had to go to reproduction that night. I drove home, he emailed me the WAV, I fixed in 3 minutes and emailed it back and the CD went in on time...very happy engineer!

Jack Stoner, you certainly can run an entire song through Melodyne, set a pitch correction Macro to 93%....... you'll be surprised .......between guitar players with capos and vocalists that cant quite get the note, Melodyne is really a great tool! If anybody needs tracks fixed, I will happy to fix them😎

Graillon, auburn sounds has a free one. It's better than all the other free ones. It's better than Autotune because then you won't have horrible problems with i-lock like i did
