Paul, meet Mr. T-Pain

Paul McCartney has always been a revolutionary songwriter, producing hits his entire musical career. We could only imagine what he would have done with current tech if he had it back in the heyday. Well, at least now we can do a bit more than just imagine, we can hear what would happen in some cases. Like for instance, here, Paul McCartney and Wings come across autotune.

the guy who took the time to do that could die in a fiery auto crash, and the world would be better for it.

It took me like 2 minutes.

There is beauty in subtle imperfections.

Auto-tune makes things uncanny and implausible. Sans soul.

It's a good thing that the original song was created when it was.

It mostly just breaks up the slides in the vocals. Definitely sounds shittier but it's cool to see how it would sound.
people who can already sing should not use autotune.

Tho I'm gonna defend guys like t-pain who do use autotune tho because they can clearly write hit music but they can't sing for shit. so they use autotune. Paul on the otherhand... can sing.

I'd be more interested to hear how it would sound using the more common autotuning. It's not to the extreme T-Pain-style autotuning is, but it's in just about every song on the radio now.

What I'm talking about is how all the background vocals are autotuned to perfection, so everything sounds "perfect" yet completely inhuman.

That's the novelty of it, the unrealness of it. Just like talkboxes, vocoders, and synthesizers.

I cringe every time I hear ANYONE sing with autotune. Autotune is for losers. Like Britney Spears and Cher.

Hey hey hey HEY NOW. "Believe" is a masterpiece. I love Cher. ;_;

Can you try the same thing for me with Ted Neeley's version of "Gethsemane"?
