anyone know of any out there that are worth a shot? just dont really have the money for the antares package right now and wanted to experiment with something similar first. let me know!! thanks
I don't care much for Auto-Tune either. It sounds very colored to me. I like using GSnap when I have to.
It's free, light on resources, and very transparent. A lot of people think it's better than Auto-tune. Even when I do use these types of things, I usually only draw them in during the really off parts and drop them out immediately after. Keeps things sounding more natural.

Thats not going to work: pro-tools doesn't support VST plug-ins.
You either need to find a suitable RTAS plug, or look for a wrapper that will allow you to use VSTs.
It's hard enough to edit a vocal cleanly with AT or Melodyne, even after you know what you're doing. I tried G-Snap and couldn't really make it work well. Maybe I'm just used to the other two.

I must be out of touch, I thought Autotune was pretty good. I've been using version 3 for the last 6 years. In just a few seconds I can open it up, set the key, and choose a very slow attack so it only fixes the long notes that tend to drift. The only downside I thought was that it is very resource heavy.
Can anyone explain why it sounds colored, I don't remember hearing it change the tone at all.
I don't know about it coloring the audio so much as introducing artifacts, even on the simplest vocals. It's always been a pain to have to go through and painstakingly comb through the file to make sure it's clean. Ugh. I avoid it like the plague. I'll take a cleanly sung, slightly pitchy vocal any day.
well put man........i was just trying to mess around with some new tools.Originally Posted by Weasel9992
