    Look at what this D-Bag T-Pain started.....I just heard Heartless by K.west for the first time....sure I'm out of the loop, it's because I HATE hip hop today and don't listen to the radio stations..I guarantee every single song on 808s and heartbreak features this damn auto tuner!!! Lil Wayne, 50 cent, EVERYONE....THAT'S ENOUGH!!!!!!!!!! stop using the damn auto tuner!!! and stop calling it a vocoder!!!! it's a completely different feature altogether.

    I'm sick of the state of hip hop.

    can't be mad at T-Pain, b/c he is making his money, but yeah, it's getting over done.

    totally agree, this auto tune is totally out of control. but its not just rap and r&b. I have heard country and pop artist using it too. just not as pronounced an effect. but I agree, its wack tho.

    It's a total fail. Rap is in a sad state now. Auto-tune is terrible.

    You mean vocoder, right?

    I agree, it makes anybody sound fruity.

    Figure like this, with the Auto Tuner/Vocoder they don't have to actually sing.

    There is no such thing as "hip hop" today. What they're putting out today is called "shit", there's a difference.

    Rap/Hip-hop is not music.

    I kid, I kid. (well, not really...) ;)

    P.S. What is an "Auto-Tune"?

    My understanding is that it's a program that allows "artists" to feed sound output through a computer during live performances so that the computer can adjust their singing notes to make them on key.

    We're talking about people like Kanya West that use this thing.... definitely, definitely not music.

    I was at an Angels game last season and the girl singing the National Anthem was tying to emulate the auto-tune effect while she sang. It was awful and kinda aggravating since it was the national anthem. At first I thought maybe she was having a stroke or something.

    its a computer program that makes your voice sound "better" i guess to hide the flaws in one's singing. if you've heard any songs by akon, or t-pain, then you've heard auto tune. now everyone in rap is using it. especially kanye west, who did his latest album entirely with auto tune.

    I think Cher used it first and was made fun of for it.

    a vocoder is a completely seperate entity from the auto-tuner. People often mistake them. The autotuner is a device used through software to automatically "tune" a soundwave/voice to a key you choose in the software. You can manually do it too which is actually pretty fun. A vocoder is usually an analog aparatus found in things such as a microkorg that change the way the voice sounds. A talkbox is an analog box connected through an instrument that creates that zapp/frampton sound
