Online Vocal Pitch Correction Services
Affordable online vocal tuning (autotune)
Hello, I’m Ryan – An audio and mastering engineer as well as a vocalist. Being a singer myself, I know that we care how our vocals sound on tracks and we can squirm at the slightest out-of-pitch note regardless of whether anybody else can hear it.
I’ve helped to enhance a variety of artists’ vocal tracks, using my knowledge to make adjustments to pitch and timing issues to help improve the flow and emotion of a performance.
From minor subtle tweaks to T-Pain levels of pitch correction I can help to enhance the vocal recording of your track.
Why pitch correction is OK!
Why your vocal might need tuning enhancements
Should you add pitch correction or not? Is it bad musicianship if you do it? Not all vocals need tuning enhancements, but modern vocals and certainly pop vocals, often do need vocal tuning and timing adjustments. There are valid reasons for this:
Older recordings from some of the greatest artists like Frank Sinatra, Elvis and Aretha Franklin have moments in their songs where their vocals are out of tune, but it adds character and emotion. To most people the out-of-tune elements are unrecognisable as being out-of-tune.
While some might argue that their talent and performance level was higher than today’s standards the other argument is this: Those recordings had only organic instrumentation rather than any synthesizers where the pitch is exact.
For example guitars, double basses and pianos could all be a bit out of tune from one another but modern pop songs with synthesizers, keyboards and computer generated music are exact – Therefore if the vocal is slightly out of tune it is MUCH more noticeable.
How to prepare your vocal audio files
Correctly preparing your vocal audio files for pitch correction is easy.
- Label your tracks & files correctly e.g. “Vocal – Main Vocal”, “Backing Track”.
- Remove any plugin effects.
- Export your files as full length WAVs i.e. if your song is 3 minutes long but your vocal begins at 0:30 then your vocal file should still be 3 minutes long but with silence up until 0:30.
Once you’ve prepared your tracks you can use WeTransfer to send them over.
