Sayings of Eddie Art / And Michael Buble explains
The first singer that says, “I won’t be auto-tuned to sound like a machine” will be accused by critics of not being able to sing on pitch! – Art S Revolutionary
Michael Buble , a fine singer, talks about how he is forced into auto tuning some of his vocals*:
BUBLE: I’ll be honest with you. On my original songs, if you listen, like, my new track called “It’s a Beautiful Day,” I have Auto-Tuned that…
I use it as a means to get on to pop radio, onto Top 40 Radio. I mean, it’s kind of like an effect, I guess, that you hear so much on modern radio that if you don’t have it, you don’t really get played.
MARTIN: So you can’t really compete in that kind of place in mainstream radio circles unless you have that really polished sound?
BUBLE: Yeah. Well, you just sound – you sound out of place. People’s ears are so tuned to it now that it’s almost cosmetic surgery – you can fix little things. I think if it’s not overused, it’s always OK. Listen, I have a feeling that if Elvis Presley and Frank Sinatra were alive today, they might just use it once in a while
