100 times better than auto tune bullshit...

 

 

The full length version, which is far less clear in terms of the vocals.

I can imagine a time when AI will be used to clean up old and low quality audio.  Not to replace the originals, but to reproduce them as they might have sounded in the room.  Like old Edison Records stuff...or that old AM radio sounding Southern Blues type stuff.

Or closer to home....help make old B- quality bootlegs sound closer to FM or Board. :)

New Country and Modern Pop, while performed by humans,  already seem so formulaic and soulless that it makes sense to eliminate the middle man.

Mostly true, but AI coming up with something this sublime is still decades out.

Can I assume Megan Thee Stallion and Charlamagne Tha God are somehow related?

They're the biological parents of Chance the Rapper and Cedric the Entertainer, and the comma law parents of Tyler, the Creator.

Why am I not surprised an old guy doesn't like auto tune.

Auto tune is fine.  The problem is when people use it to make themselves sound like robots or perfectly in key all the time.

Yeah, it was fun for 15 minutes.  Now it's just annoying.

Liking that shit doesn't make you younger or hipper.  I guess I don't need to say that to someone who has a lord of the rings character as his avatar, though.

The only people who "like" autotune are the wannabe singers who need it to cover up the fact that they can't f**king sing.

I tried a little experiment with ChatGPT:

 

Me:  Can you write song lyrics?

ChatGPT:  Sure, I can help with that! What kind of song lyrics are you looking for?

 Me: 

Song lyrics on the subject of "being misunderstood" in the style of Neil Peart. Three four-line verses with 4 iambs per line and one four-line chorus with 4 iambs per line.

ChatGPT:  Certainly! Here are some song lyrics in the style you requested, inspired by the theme of "being misunderstood" and the poetic style reminiscent of Neil Peart:

 

Verse 1:

In shadows cast, I walk alone,

The whispers fade, my thoughts unknown.

A soul adrift, in silent night,

Misunderstood, in fleeting light.

 

Verse 2:

Beneath the surface, words unsaid,

A tangled web, in heart and head.

Seeking solace, in quiet tears,

Lost in echoes, of endless fears.

 

Verse 3:

A restless mind, a quiet storm,

Unseen truths, in silence born.

Yearning for the dawn's embrace,

To find a place, where words find grace.

 

Chorus:

Misunderstood, in shadows deep,

Lost within, the secrets keep.

In the quiet, of the night's refrain,

Seeking solace, in the echo's pain.

 

I hope these lyrics capture the essence of being misunderstood, echoing the introspective and poetic style often associated with Neil Peart's songwriting. Let me know if there's anything else you'd like to explore or if you have further requests!

 

Eesh.

No shit sherlock.  It's usually old people that don't like it because they are set in their old ways.  Just keep listening to the same 10 bands you always have.

It's an instrument.  Is it over used sometimes?  Sure , but so are some of the guitar wanking nonsense in heavy metal/prog rock.

Autotune is an instrument? No, it is most definitely not. Autotune is a tool used to alter the pitch and performance of an instrument --  by itself it does not make music.

 

Not sure what you mean with the "guitar wanking" comment in the context of this autotune  discussion. Can you expand on that a little more, maybe give an example?

It's not about being set in your ways, or being a certain age. You don't need to be "old" to have appreciation for the craft and talent it takes to make good music, or to shame those who use autotune or Pro Tools or AI to cover up their lack of talent.

 

Music is art, and true art is made by humans with emotion and imagination -- and imperfection. I know that sounds preachy and corny but f*ck it, it's true. The aforementioned tools don't make art.

Good post.  You'd think that would be something that didn't require explanation, but here we are.

This is where technology has taken us, and that technology will continue to advance. I don't mind a talented singer using autoune to fix a few notes in a otherwise good performance, but so many modern singers rely on it for the whole song. Some people like Mith don't care about that, but I sure as hell do. The kind of music that I like to listen to (and like to play) can't be faked by a machine. Maybe the drums can be played by a computer program if it's set up right, but nothing beats listening to a human play an instrument in ways that I can't.
