Man have you listened to today’s hip hop and top 40? Every damn artist has that “robotic Cher Autotune” sound. Good news, there’s a new version of Autotune.
With even more features like graphic representation of the notes (like Melodyne), vocalists who suck can now suck less.
Soon somebody will come out with a plugin which not only tunes the vocals, it writes the lyrics and performs them. Then the need for a vocalist will be eliminated. Since everyone lipsyncs these days anyway, they could just find the best looking “dancer” they can and stick them on stage to fake their parts.
