Antares Auto Tune Pro

Antares Auto Tune Pro

Auto-Tune has quickly become one of the staples of modern-day music. The digital enhancement is something that many crooners now use. The challenge is that while many people know what it is and what it sounds like, few people know how to work with it. If you’ve had that itch that you’ve wanted to scratch for a while, Nimbus can satisfy that curiosity as we teach you all the ins and outs of using auto-tune.

Software Description

Auto-Tune Pro is the most comprehensive, advanced version of Auto-Tune. What the software includes is Auto Mode, Graph Mode and Auto-Key plug-in. The Auto Mode allows for real-time corrections and effects, the Graph Mode is for when you want to get really detailed pitch editing and the Auto-Key plug-in is for flawless key and scale detection.

Some of the other key features of this software include Classic Mode, which is where you’ll find that iconic “Auto-Tune 5 sound”. That’s where you’ll also find the Flex-Tune and Humanize sounds, which are much more natural-sounding. This mode also gives you the power to shift the pitch, do vocal transformations and use real-time Auto-Tune in real-time (during a live performance).

Overall, whether you’re just looking to fix up a few questionable notes or create music where Auto-Tune is the centerpiece, this is the best software for polishing up those performances.

What You’ll Learn

Nimbus turns Auto-Tune beginners into advanced professionals. We’ll address the different types of recorded vocal performances, the technologies used to capture those sounds and working with software for production and mixes. Specifically, with Auto-Tune, we’re going to help you get familiar with what many consider to be the most widely used plug-in in music production.

The main modes you’ll learn about are:
Auto Mode – You’ll learn about input types, scale setting, retune speed, humanizing, natural vibrato, and targeting notes.
Graphic Mode – You’ll learn about correction mode to graph, general options, buffering and default retuning speeds.

To give you an idea of some of the tools we’ll learn about, here are a few that we’ll start with:

  • The Line Tool – this is used to draw multi-segment lines on the pitch graph. You’ll need this when you want to either hold a straight pitch or bend it evenly from one pitch to a different one.
  • The Note Tool – this is the tool that’s used to draw notes. Some people use this more than the line tool.
  • The Curve Tool – this tool is used is ideal for when you need to free-hand draw in pitch correction.
  • The Arrow Tool – this is likely the most commonly used tool. You’ll use this to select/edit both existing lines and notes.
  • The Scissors Tool – this is used for cutting existing lines and notes, which can then be parsed for individual sections for editing.
  • Magnifying Glass – this is used for zooming in and out. It’s important for precision with editing.
  • I-Beam – this helps you select an area of time, so you can manipulate it (edit, generate data) all at once.
  • Hand Tool – this is what’s used to move the display around.
