the subject is “AutoTune” vs. “TalkBox”
with the advent of T-Pain, this has become a “debate” is he using AutoTune or a TalkBox?
well i’m here to clear that up for any of you that are confused.
he’s using AutoTune a program by Antares, that is either a Rack Mount or a plugin on the recording software. Kanye West used this on his most recent “album” as well. which is good, because he CAN’T SING!!!
here is an example of AutoTune. they actually show you the setting on the computer.
this is the first time i remember hearing AutoTune on a song.
stupid YouTube wouldn’t let me have the original video.
so AutoTune doesn’t have to sound like an automated robot and i think both Taylor Swift and Miley Cyrus need to have one on their rigs. i would use one if i was singing live on TV.
this is TalkBox. the difference. TalkBox takes some skill. this is a guy playing keyboard with it.
i love it how he is playing on what appears to be a Casio Keyboard.
now, in my opinion, the MASTER of the TalkBox. Peter Frampton.
and i would be remiss if i didn’t post this.
he uses the TalkBox at about 3:53 in the video to sing one of my favorite songs EVER!! it rocks believe me.
lots of videos today, but i hope i cleared up the “AutoTune” vs “TalkBox” confusion for many of you.
