History Of AutoTune

November 30, 2009

A “Know Your Meme” video, promoted by Antares Auto-Tune. It’s not hilarious, but it did tickle my funnybone. Mostly because Wierd Al is in it.

    look speaking of autotune, i know you and the band use pitch-correctors as well. PLEASE, dont put any of autotune in your next album PLLEEAASSEE. its a disgrace and even if chester sometimes cant get the right notes, linkin park will be alot more respected. i mean cmon mike, please take my advice SERIOUSLY.

    Are they serious about the autotune app on the iphone? Apple comes up with all the important things don’t they?

    Well, that is where the knowledge comes from….Thanks Mike…for helping me find the reason why I hate most of the dance music….AUTO TUNE!!! And this video is hilarious, at least to me – a person doing academic stuff all the time~~~~~

    I LOL’d a few weeks ago when I first saw it and I would LOL again. Mostly because of the guy in the background. And because of the O RLY? owl and Woll Smoth pictures on the walls. I. Love. Memes. No one should ever utter the phrase, “Rapper-turned-sangah,” though.

    Autotune officially became old meme when the slap chop guy did it, I think. You’ll love my nuts.

    It’s not really funny…interesting though
    God I hate auto-tune… :/
    Not a big Weird Al fan either
    I loved that Jay-Z song

    I love Weird Al:)Especially “Like A Surgeon”…anyway Autotune is like a photoshop for audio for me (I think they actually said that in the video).I mean there was still amazing music out there without it so what’s the big hype?Why is it so cool that someone’s covering up their screw-ups with some fancy program?

    I don’t have a problem with autotune it can sound good but an artist who uses the hole time autotune, damn thats really stupid. I mean if they use auto tune with singing live! Or they always payblack, they still have to proove they can sing.
