Garageband's Autotune Can Make You Kanye

Built in capability is really quite impressive.      24/02/09
Caution this video does contain explicit language
Youtube user PirateSk00l takes us through how to get that T-Pain or Kanye AutoTune vocal effect. And all this with a piece of software that comes free with a new Apple computer. As I said above, this does contain some fruity language, but Elliot Bearing does keep us (or at least me) smiling throughout. Excellent tutorial. He writes:
"Want to get that signature T- Pain or Kanye West auto effect using nothing but GarageBand??? This quick tutorial will show you how to take your crap voice and put it in tune. No plugins needed!!! If you have Apples Garage Band in OS X you have everything you need."

this is so funny. I was just working on some sessions this weekend in my lil project studio and I thought it would be funny to do the same thing (except i was using logic pro) I seems ur result was a lil more pronounced than what i did but it's funny non the less. keep up the vids.

GarageBand's Autotune is a pretty good feature, and I'm gonna let you finish, but Antares' Autotune is ONE OF THE BEST AUTOTUNERS EVER!

I downloaded the actual (free trial) software that those guys use (by Antares Software) and I was playing around with it in GarageBand, when I remembered GarageBand had a feature like this built in and I was like "wait a minute..."! The Antares plugin does, however, give you a little bit stronger of an effect if you're going for that, or an even more subtle effect than the built-in effect, and it also gives you more direct control over how it works. This is pretty good though considering it comes free with the computer. I think you used a little too much reverb though.
