RE: [vocalists-151] Melodyne questions?

I'm not saying no one else should use it. I'm just saying I personally won't use it.
 
If it fits your needs, then go for it.
 
For the past 100 hundred years, before these devices came along, vocalists had to get it right on their own. It was hard work and I respect them for what they had to do.
 
I'd rather continue that tradition in my case. But then I'm an old school, old guy and the next generation will pass my right by and leave me in the dust. Ha!

Yeah, that's nice if you have unlimited funds to spend all the time in the world in the studio.

But in the end that's unrealistic. There are times when you need it to be spot-on for the sake of the harmonies or whatever, and to keep doing it over and over comes to a point of diminishing returns, where your voice gets tired. Some of us are songwriters first, and vocalists second, and we don't have the money to spend the time in the studio it would take to get it perfect. If you can get every note on an entire full length album spot-on in just a few takes, then you are truly gifted. But not everyone can do that, and to say we shouldn't be singing at all is a bit snooty, if I may say. I unashamedly used pitch correction (an Antares plug-in, I believe) on my latest release, Still Quiet Voice

I always say, I use pitch correction for the same reason a woman wears make-up. Think about it.

I've always been totally uncomfortable with things like Melodyne.
 
If I'm in the studio and I sing a part flat, I have to go back and re-do it. If I can't sing it right without the aid of a device, then I feel like I shouldn't be singing the part at all.

Hi CSC,
If any of you are out there using Melodyne for the many things it can do, including pitch correction, I am attending a Grammy members only event at the Chicago Recording Company this Thursday called, In The Studio: Perfecting Your Production With Melodyne.
 
If you have any questions you'd like asked feel free to get back to me. I have the program, but feel I only know a fraction of what it can do. 
 
Peace,
John
