Come on, one more time !
The real time pitch correction, the “autotune“, is the effect we all love to hate (and vice versa).
T-Pain, Cher, Daft Punk, Tatayet, Black Eyed Peas, and so many artists have used it creatively, for getting this weird robotic voice feeling.
We have searched all around the interweb, and tested for you : 5 FREE autotune VST plugins, to use in real time in any sequencer or DAW. We tend to prefer vocoder over the pitch corrector/autotune effect, but anyway, here’s the TOP 5 :
1. KeroVee VST by g200kg
Info & download @ http://www.g200kg.com/en/software/kerovee.html
We already talked about this one in the “Voice FX post”, because it can do wicked chorus effects !
It’s also a nice pitch corrector autotune plugins : it’s intended to sound robotic, and works great for that “T-Pain effect”. Do you belieeeeeve it is free ? => yes it is.

2. AAS Autotune by Arguru
Direct download : archive
AAS Autotune VST was coming with Aodix, a tracker/sequencer created by Arguru http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Juan_Antonio_Arguelles_Rius
It works nicely and give instant autotune effect without too much effort on parametring the knobs/sliders. This old plugin is still the best !

3. GVST GSnap autotune

It works on monophonic signal input, it also can be controlled via MIDI, for according the signal correction to melody played by theMIDI keyboard.
It can be subtle, you have to set it to extreme settings for getting the “robotic effect” popularized by so many indispensable tunes.
