    It's got me close to committing suicide. I'm actually AFRAID to turn the radio on now and listen out of fear that I might hear the unbelievably, ridiculously played out effect and grab the sharpest object I can find and start cutting.

    Anyone else with me on this?

    I have that fear of AM talk radio. I can't imagine turning the radio and Rush LImpballs comes blaring out of the speakers.

    btw I have no idea what tune you speak of.

    I am. Auto-Tune is making me highly turned off from music today. Especially when more and more musicians use it.

    I don't listen to hip-hop, therefore I don't understand this thread.

    If I received a dollar for everyone here who construed this as you being racist I bet I could get a membership.

    Auto-tune has been in use for quite some time. The recent trend involves purposefully overemphasizing the effects by using the software to make the singer's voice jump immediately from one pitch to another, as opposed to using it to subtly correct errors in pitch. That was its intended use. Hell, it's even used in live performances without most of us realizing it. :lol:

    Anybody unfamiliar with auto-tune can hear it used prominently in this song:
