On Anderton's SSS forum over at HC I noticed a thread abt the value of AutoTune.

That gave rise to an idea I mentioned for a product aimed at guitarists, perhaps called "Ought To Tune" (hey, we get picked on because Kboard players don't have to tune & drummers can get by with approximate tuning)...

 

Now it occurs to me that the world's just waiting for some bold guitarist to step forward & take advantage of technology & exploit that effect, not on vocals, where it's become all the rgae, but as a guitar effect.

I know a guy who used to be a drummer (still is, I guess) but has started doing solo shows playing acoustic guitar & singing. He uses an effect pedal, which may be this one to match his vocals to his guitar to help auto-tune his vocals. I'm wondering if you were to revers the inputs, or use it on it's own, you could auto-tune your guitar? Of course, every time you bend a note or use a chorus or phaser, you'd be defeating the purpose of one of the pedals.

That said, I do know many guitarists who could use an autotune, or just learn how to tune in the first place.

So, half', are you meaning to use/misuse/abuse some manner of auto-tuning so as to produce unusual pitch-effects, artifacts and dynamics?

Yeah, get that post-Zapp, Cher/T-Pain thang goin' !

Instead of hitting the note, y'land near it & get electronically slung into it.

 

Or maybe just use it to not bother having to tune at all ?!

The only autotune I'm aware of is the wayyyy overused vocal effect in pop music these days. I thought by now people would have quit using it because it's no longer a "new thing". Unfortunately, it's getting worse.

 

Y'know, for that psuedo-neo-faux-soul-funk some are putting out now, I guess it fits in a bit. But even some COUNTRY sangers are using it now! Ghaaaah!

I started out with NOTHING...and I still have most of it left!
