    I ran into this video demo from NAMM 2009:

    And in short, now I know how all those people who can't sing very well sound like Celine Dion on the tracks. I used to think it was just adding effects etc. But it's actual manipulation of the track. Maybe this is something that everybody else knew and I just found out?!

    So now that some people sound kick ass recorded what do they do to reproduce that great pitch live?

    You can get auto tune in an effects rack processor.

    I'd rather scrape my nails down a blackboard than listen to it though.

    Also, as to what happens live, I laugh. It's like drummers that quantise their beats. When they play live I laugh. :p

    Well, you know I just think with the state of the music biz, artists will be making more $ from live performances then from record sales, so it's important to be able to sing live...

    I mean these editing functions on the Cubase are cool for recording projects...but live? I remember when Garbage released 2.0, with crazy production and hundreds of tracks on each song. They had a hard time reproducing that live, but at the end they managed to pull it off b/s Garbage is a band of super producers.

    Live pitch correction isn't terribly uncommon in the major label pop world, is it?

    And the rock people don't care much. Remember Joy Division?

    you are working for audiofranzine the same company who I believe bought HR.com and is now digging that domain into the mud.

    Take your BS trolling somewhere else.
