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.

Pretty sure you have that backwards. The basic version of Melodyne is far more natural sounding than Antares basic Autotune plugin. Autotune is known for its vocoder-esque sound, made famous by Cher and later "Autotune the news" viral videos on YouTube. The basic Melodyne plugin can do corrections without sounded like corrections, sometimes even extreme pitch changes over a few full steps, depending on the voice. The full version of Melodyne is more comprehensive than the basic version, it allows for much greater control over many more parameters, but for simple fine tuning of vocals or instruments the basic version is probably more than most people even need. I don't know about the full Antares Evo suite or whatever it's called now, haven't used Antares since the version of my DAW that included Melodyne came out.

The best technique for tuning vocals is to record multiple takes and comp them together; if the singer is consistently musical and well practiced. Comping can be followed by autotune or melodyne for fine tuning or effect.
