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

I had to re install Autotune and a few other plugins.

WAVES' haste to drop support for older plugins while digging into iLok has made me drop WAVES.

Last thing I want to do is expose my DAW's iLok to the modern internet and the new iLok system which may render the rest of the plugins/daw to go into haywire mode. The way these plugin/daw software are going it's a rental more now than it is an outright ownership.

Good thing Antares (Auto Tune) kept archives of the older software and helped me re-auth code my bought and paid for $400 TDM version of Auto Tune and Mic Mod.

Auto Tune is now part of recording school curriculum
in the more expensive recording schools. In order to graduate you need to pass Auto Tune.

Producers like Howard Benson is said to have said anyone who doesn't use Auto Tune is nuts.

Many pro studios are staying with older version daw software and older computers rather than getting on the upgrade carousel.

I meant to say Melodyne is so good that when an out of tune singer is corrected the voice is so good corrected, you would never know all those mistakes could be in the original recording. I love the results of Melodyne!

Yes Melodyne is pretty comprehensive with pitch and time correction. If we listen to old recordings by the greats way before pitch correction, there were sharps and flats all over the place. Surprised

In these days of forum self-deprecating posts based on age related issues, one may be misread if not a double entendre. Smile

I bought Antares Autotune 10 years ago and never like it for pitch correction. Instead I prefer doing it by hand a note at a time with the built in pitch correction in my DAW which is Steinberg Nuendo. I do use Autotune for that gurgling effect on pop and hip hop artist. Some bands have booked time simply because I had autotune. Lol!
