Hi! What would you say would be the best way to tune and correct the vocals when you mix? do you use melodyne and auto tune? or how do you do it?

I use Melodyne editor, which is a MUCH CHEAPER stripped down basic version of the program. It allows me to do everything I need to do, although pitch correcting in general can often be very tedious. Depending on your DAW, some come with excellent built-in tuners, Ableton being one of them. I tend to do all my vocal editing right on Ableton, with one button. Some would say that tuning vocals that way could warble or degrade the audio file, but I'm sure Melodyne and Antares are doing a similar thing. If you want full hands on, extremely microscopic control I would go with either Antares or Melodyne. Some would say Antares leads the pack, but I like what I can do in Melodyne with distorting and warping chopped vocals and incorporating them as instruments in my beats. A good example is Skrillex who works primarily in Melodyne to get those wobble vocal chops, while Antares seems to be more focused on over all auto correction and not the crazy stuff.
