For the many who don’t know what it is, Auto-Tune is a software package that’s used to try to correct the pitch of vocals or instruments in a music track. Maybe you hit one sour note or are just slightly off key, and not in a charming way, Auto-Tune could maybe tweak it a little for you.
Well, what happens if what you’re ‘correcting’ isn’t music or vocals? And what if you have a history of some rather creative songwriting of your own. Well, then you get something like the what The Gregory Brothers (plus one wife) have put together with their rather interesting revision of current and past history, with a little help from Auto-Tune (on their newer videos at least).
Here are the gems that are currently available. I recommend subscribing to their YouTube channel to keep up with the latest releases. Brilliant, infectious and just lots of fun. I dare you to watch and not get the tunes stuck in your head.
