Re: Why so much backlash against Auto-Tune?
A ton of really great artists use autotune to some sort of extent. But I has a couple of problems with it. First of all, there was that point in time where EVERYBODY was doing it. I thought it was fine when it was just T-Pain (who, as the guy above me said, really is a capable singer without it), but when Kanye, Wayne, HUSSEIN FATAL, and even fucking REDMAN started using it, it was too much. Voice effects are only cool until EVERYBODY starts using them.
Second, rappers started using it completely the wrong way. The main offender of this was Wayne. The thing about autotune is that you still have to SING into it. T-Pain did that, Kanye did that, Wayne literally just talked into it. That's not how autotune is supposed to work.
^furious, projects self-image onto others^
Talent/charisma draws. Not size.
