What's up with all this auto tunes in songs now? It is being used way too much now days. T-pain is the king of using auto tunes for like everything. Like Jamie Foxx's new song out has auto tunes in the whole song. How in heck do you perform a song live that only has auto tunes in it? If you can't sing then you shouldn't be a singer. I don't like when a whole song is done in auto tunes. I don't mind if you use a little auto tunes on some of the song but not the whole song. Hopefully this fad will die out soon.

I like what Kelly Clarkson said recently about auto tunes.

I agree with what she says about losing the emotions...but sadly autotune has been the norm for over a decade now.

If you hate when people who cant sing rely exclusively on an auto tuner, you'll probably enjoy this video.

I myself can stand the device. It just smells of no-talent.

I dont mind it but its getting played out....
Zapp used something similar called a Vocoder,Daft Punk uses Auto-Tone i think.
Im sure T-pain uses it in every song he does or produces.

Why cant they use real instruments?

AZ - Sosa


YouTube - AZ-Sosa

This song is better than any pop/hip-hop/rap/dance song that's come out in the last 5 years or so. All he is using is a guitar and drums/drum machine
