  • AutoTune the revolution

    I have a video feed from Tahrir Square in Cairo on right now, during the protests. They are playing an Egyptian song over the PA. And , lo and behold, the vocal is heavily autotuned.

    They are doomed.

      I've heard something like that myself. Middle Eastern microtonal singing sounds really odd when auto tuned. I'm guessing that no one has come up with a microtonal grid for Autotune yet.

        I heard a piece on Morning Edition this morning about how PBS is remixing classic shows (the Mr. Rogers video clip that I think was posted here was one of their examples) and they emphasized that they were "Autotuned." Some were just plain silly, some were just mixed like a modern hip-hop record with extensive use of delays (and autotune to create melodic pitch where there really is none needed).
