Vocally Correct/Auto-tune a "Choir"
Soo, for my band's upcoming album, I decided that certain spots would sound really killer to have a bunch of shouting voices tucked in.
So I set up my 4050 in omni and layered a couple of takes with 5 people singing/shouting. The problem is they're not all superb singers...they were just friends. We don't really have the budget to hire a "choir" but we wanted that effect.
Honestly, it's not really bad, we can get away with what we have. I was just curious if AutoTune/Melodyne/Vocal correction software would be okay to tighten it up. (I ask this because I dont own a vox correction software, but where im going to mix it does).
5 voices per track
It definitely doesnt sound bad, but there is 1 spot that does stand out - the music cuts out and we have the main melody going and a counter melody with a "crowd" singing. At one point, the entire "crowd" goes a little sharp. It's something I didnt catch off the bat cuz it was a punch in.....anyway....
Thoughts? Like I said, it's usable without correction, and I dont want to suck the life out of it, but it would be nice to maybe tighten the crowd sound up.
