There is nothing more of a dividing line than talking about one of two things: drum samples, and vocal tuning. Some people may be against vocal tuning, and feel like it is cheating, but if you look back, we really have always been cheating! I love hearing stories about how they used to slow down the tape in the 60s and 70s in order to hit the high notes, and then speed the tape back up again. The tricks we use today may look different, but we have always had our tools and tricks for getting the best results possible!
Today, we will be talking about vocal tuning, and trying out an amazing suite of plugins from Antares: Auto-Tune Unlimited. These really are great plugins and I am so excited to show you what they can all do!

When it comes to vocal tuning, I don’t tune just for the sake of it, and I am not advocating for that, however when you are given something to mix and there are issues with it, but you don’t have time to re-do it, having the ability to tweak even just a note or two to improve the performance is wonderful! This is where Antares Auto-Tune comes in!
