The Auto-Tune Meme (Video)

November 16, 2009

Much has been written about Auto-Tune in the mainstream media. Whether you love or hate the tool (and its effect), the public beyond recording engineers, producers and musicians has become hyper-aware of its use. And many people are starting to get annoyed. 

A friend sent this video along this morning, and I thought those of you who find the T-Pain effect annoying might find this interesting. Though the video is humorous (and features "Weird Al" Yankovic--awesome!), it poses an interesting idea of where we are in the cycle of the Auto-Tune meme, referencing the history since Cher's release in 1998, and that we may soon reach a point of equilibrium. The effect will not go away, but rather be less overused and more balanced.

In the meantime, enjoy the video (5:52).
