In one of my previous blogs, I had a link to an interview of T-Pain who claimed that you need to be able to sing in order for auto-tune to sound good. If any of you are bowing down to T-Pain right now because of that statement, I suggest you get off from the ground, go to your computer, and check out this video:
Thank you ‘davidchoimusic!’
Thanks to you, auto-tune has been exposed!
In T-Pain’s single I Can’t Believe It, he definitely uses auto-tune, but during a performance he sings it live with out auto-tune. Wow. I am speechless. So, if he can sing like he claims, then what’s the point of making yourself sound like a robot? It’s so frustrating. It’s not just ‘tweaking’ a note so it hits the preferred note, it completely changes sound of the artist to the extent that they’re almost unperceived!
If you want a good laugh, watch the video of his song until you get to Lil Wayne’s part. I’d love it if someone responded with the lyrics of the song, because I have no idea what the heck he is saying. Lol, check it out:
