Yep that's graphical mode... you open up the wav highlight the the bit that is wrong
open auto tune >
click "graphical mode button" >
click track pitch >
preview the bit which is wrong >
it will draw a graph >
then click make vibrato curve>
then you can move the whole lot up or down using the various tools
or use the scissors to cut the parts you want to pitch....
I NEVER use Auto tune on a whole vocal track it
This is a real dodgy method I have heard of but never used myself
Monitor in software and have auto tune on the channel you are recording to
so the singer is hearing his voice through auto tune they will hear auto tune messing with their voice and they will know when they are going out.
Then you remove the auto tune and it SHOULD be Ok..????
I am the vocal coach and I won't use the above method as I believe it sucks the life out of a natural performance and the engineer (me) or the singer will know which word/phrase is wrong and then you just keep
doing a few more goes at it. if all else fails use method 1 above...
if your recording yourself get someone who can hear a bad note to sit in with you...
and don't try so hard...relax....tension is the cause of most wrong notes..
