cat:Yeah but this thing cost ~ $800-$900 , so it should be 9x better than
$100 crap ...
uhh 9 x zero is still zero... hmmmmm
I'll amend my statement.
To think that a 900 dollar pedal would come anywhere close to
25 thousand dollars worth of software and a professional audio
Bottom line, doesn't matter who does it, it sounds like crap
at the slightest hint of obviousness. And at absolute best
it tries to make up for not having a singer who can do the
job to begin with.
Why would it seem odd to expect a singer to be in tune?
Maybe Pt hires guitar players that can't play in tune and
expects that to get fixed by autocorrection.
Damn ionian mode.
I had never heard of vocal pitch correction until it was mentioned in
this group. How long as it been around, since tape? I can imagine the
fun they would have had slowing down and speeding up tapes, then trying
to get the tempo right again.
TC Electronic (rather TC Helicon) makes a lot of these devices - among them is a vocal corrector. Personally, I like the smaller two-button stomp ones - and I want them for use in post-production in my project studio, not for performance. I also imagine that I could pass just about any signal I'd want through them...vox or instrument. In that case I'd rather have numerous smaller, simpler building blocks available in my arsenal, but I also feel the same about using them for performance - less is more.
I just think they'd be handy...like Lump said - you can sing and/or play *or* tune, but you can't sing and/or play *and* tune and think you'll get much good out of them.
