re: Auto-Tune

I know I’m not the first person to say so, but the thing about Auto-Tune is that, in the right hands, it can be a thing of wonder. Kanye uses it on 808s and Heartbreak to express his sadness in a way that an unprocessed vocal wouldn’t, frankly. And Auto-Tune king T-Pain, at his best, utilizes it as another instrument, another toy in his box; he completely alters the textures of his records with it. (Not to mention that his productions for other artists are increasingly exciting – see Ciara’s “Go Girl.”)
