I am new to the world of tuning vocals, and I dont know what most people think about these tuning softwares, but I think it is a great way for me to make some money, and offer more services for my clients (although I know if they can't sing, they are out of luck anyway). I have never actually used auto tune, but I know it works good (if used properly), and is pretty much a big name in the industry. I have used the demo of melodyne and thought it was a pretty awsome tool. I thought that since it is shipping with the M-Box 2 now, it must be a respectable program. I used a text to speach generator, and generated "row row row your boat gently down the stream" and with melodyne, in two hours of never using the software before, could create a loop based melody and harmony of the generated spoken text in tune to a musical scale. I was amazed with the results, but still skeptical because I was not using actual singing/recorded vocals. I will mainly be using the program for tuning vocals, creating harmonies, and creating effects. I am wondering what the opinions are between the two, and if you had a choice between one or the other, which would it be, and why?
