We all pretty much know that the technology known as autotune is a massive enemy against not only rock and metal music, but all kinds of music. This pitch correcting software has made it easier for singers to nail their vocal parts in recording situations which definitely has its applications, but it has gotten to the point where it’s being overused to the point where singers don’t even have to be singers to create a ‘technically perfect’ recording.
Back in the day, the artists we listened to had to be able to hit their notes all by themselves without any assistance from a computer. Unfortunately, these days, the technology has become to available and overused that autotune has become an industry standard, and this engineer you’re about to see has had ENOUGH of it!
What you’re about to watch is a video in which an engineer by the name of Glenn Fricker goes on a fierce (but well spoken and detailed) rant against autotune. Not only does he tear into the technology itself, but he uses well though out examples of times it was used and not used. This is truly one of the best videos we’ve ever seen! See for yourself!
