I've actually had someone approach me telling me that I was doing a shitty job because of how out of key the singer was... judging by other comments that came out of that drunk's mouth, I still don't know if he was serious or kidding
Good judgment comes from experience, and a lot of that comes from bad judgment. -Will Rogers
I have a TC Helicon VoiceWorks with pitch correction. Usually this combined with a little more than normal reverb (and a decent channel eq) can make a marginal singer sound OK .... not quite the revolutionary sound this guy got
I have found it interesting how many bands have mediocre singers .... with or without effects. It isn't normally that big a deal since the vocals are frequently not that clean to begin with in the mix.
