Michael Buble Autotuned

Well wow!

Just heard autotune all over Michael Buble here on our major ITV commercial station.

Programme is called 'An Audience with Michael Buble'

"I just haven't met you yet" sounds ridiculously fake - maybe they added post production effects - my GOD he sounds baaad!!

Will watch the rest of the show for more juicy terrible AT artifacts!

edit: - jeez, how low we have descended, when a major 'artist' like that is vocally airbrushed, and so badly!

wow, always wondered about that. One very talented man, doesn't need an autotune live or in the recording studio. Just trying to stay youngish with the current proliferation of T paining autotune fx.

2010 the decade of Tpain.

That autotune ruins his records, sounds so completely ridiculous, I am baffled how his team can let that **** out of the door, a very tastless decision I think. Why lay down all of that orchestration only to make your artists vocal sound like daffy duck on meth.

Maybe his pitch isn't great. That's the case with quite a few (otherwise good) singers.

I remember reading an interview with Jay Graydon who said that Al Jarreau's pitch was all over the place and it was a nightmare to fix in those days.

I don't understand how the autotuning thing is getting worse and worse, but it is. I thought the problem peaked around 2007 or so. Now even great singers are turned to tpain. Years ago I thought this can't get worse. I was proved wrong. What i think now is, it can't possibly get worse. But it probably will again, right? But how? What the hell else are they gonna tune?? I can see it now: guitar solos are gonna come back, but they're all gonna be recorded at half speed and autotuned cause kids still aren't learning how to play, and a well calibrated and tuned guitar is overrated... No wait, judging from the way things go, even george benson is gonna get his ass tuned. So, what's next, and how do we stop it?

You should here Billy Mays on YouTube. People call it auto tune but it's clearly a vocoder.

'I Just Haven't Met You Yet' is a good song with a TERRIBLE mix. I will never forgive CLA for destroying this song by mixing it like a f-----g Metallica record.

Cheryl Cole has just been outed for singing and miming during X_Factor or some such sh1te. She recorded the vox an hour before the show, presumably to let the engineer slap autotune all over her "pitchy" performance heh

WTF is happening to live music? It's like one big feckin karaoke show

i have to even wonder if this is all an advertising thing... you know... people won't know autotune is out there if people don't hear it, right? so do you think there is a chance that the autotuning software is paying buble or tpain or whoever to have it heard?

Maybe his pitch sucks, maybe when he is told to pay attention to his pitch more in the studio he loses some of the attitude and articulation. Which all could equate to him not being a good singer but I doubt that is the case. Maybe he simply doesn't sing well in a studio environment? The bottom line for a major label artist is nothing is leaving the door out of tune. If it came out and there were off notes there would be a post here about it. No pleasing some people I guess. The major labels want a polished sound, this includes vocal tuning and if they're the ones paying you, you do it. Like it or lump it I guess. None of it makes or breaks anything for me cause if it's a good song that's what counts. Unfortunately the song in question is Cancon fodder that is overplayed and not particularly pleasing to my ears and neither is Buble with his fake smile and schmucky persona.

I didn't notice the Autotune on this track, but WTF is he doing with his hands? He needs to hold a guitar or something. Plus, he needs a new wardrobe consultant.
