Vocal Tuning Trick [Clean and Transparent]

How to pitch vocals cleanly without having a noticeable “Autotune” sound.

Modern music production requires artists to perfectly tune their vocals. The issue is, pitch correcting vocals can take away from the unique character of the voice or sound obviously pitch corrected. But what is you don’t want to have that “autotuned” voice and just want to transparently correct the vocals?

I created this quick tutorial to show you a simple trick that will make your vocal pitch correction more transparent, clean, and eliminate any noticeable pitch correcting artifacts.

After successfully pitch correcting your vocals, be sure to mix your vocals correctly by following our tutorial on how to mix rap and hip hop vocals to get a clean, clear, and crispy vocal sound.
