Hey Guys and Gals, RxBx (my production company) has a new website and we think it’s swell. The idea is that we are trying to be more proactive with sharing what’s going on in the RxBx camp by including pictures and videos of the different projects we are working on, where legally appropriate of course There are a lot of things we can’t share due to strict confidentially agreements with labels and management, but we will try our best to keep you up to date as much as possible, as well as share cool things we are enjoying in the music world and beyond. Check it out at rxbxmusic.com
Antares announces auto-tune 7: http://antarestech.com/products/auto-tune-7.shtml
Oh snap…this looks cool. Auto-tune is getting into Melodyne territory with new time editing capabilities. Pro Tip: crappy vocal tracks aren’t purely due to poor intonation. Timing and phrasing is critical, along with tone and delivery. I have always liked auto-tune for the way it deals with pitch graphs but would need to rely on elastic audio or melodyne for time correction. This could be a real time saver. Although contrary to popular belief, one can’t fix everything in post, and no “they can’t make anyone a vocal star with magical computers these days.” Improvements to timing and intonation is possible with the proper tools (in most scenarios), but a lackluster performance is generally DOA. As in, you can’t fake the funk when it comes to nailing a performance that really “sells” the lyric, auto-tuned or otherwise.
