Software Compatibility

You'll need an iLok copy protection device in order to use this software. If you already have one, you're good to go. If you don't, you can buy one here. An iLok is a small USB gadget (about the size of a thumb drive) that plugs into your computer. It "unlocks" the software, allowing you to use it.

Most software is compatible with both Mac and Windows computers, but check to make sure.

If you're using Pro Tools, AAX plug-ins (or RTAS for older versions) are what you need. Most other Mac DAWs support AU plug-ins. VST is compatible with a number of Mac and Windows programs. Be sure you choose plug-ins that work with your DAW!

Auto-Tune 8 is the result of more than 15 years of innovation

Most of us first became aware of Antares Auto-Tune in 1998, when we heard Cher's hit song "Believe" on the radio. Originally released in 1997, Auto-Tune was developed to help recording engineers correct off-key vocal performances. Auto-Tune has since become a studio staple and a permanent part of pop consciousness. Auto-Tune works by slightly bending off-key pitches to their nearest true semitone, resulting in a natural-sounding, pitch-perfect vocal performance. Of course, like Cher, T-Pain, Kanye West, and many others, you can always crank it up for that unmistakable robotic effect that's been heard on so many popular hit singles.

Flex-Tune technology ensures a natural, expressive performance

Whether you're singing blues, R&B, rock, pop, country, or jazz, Antares' revolutionary new Flex-Tune technology ensures that all of your expressive vocal gestures remain untouched. Unlike standard pitch correction, which pulls every note to its nearest semitone, Flex-Tune allows Auto-Tune 8 to reserve its processing for scale notes at a user-settable proximity. Flex-Tune gives you the freedom to sing however you want to, while retaining all of the expressive gestures and idiosyncrasies that are an integral part of your individual style.

Low-latency mode for use during tracking or live performances

When it comes to any kind of live performance, the last thing you want to introduce into your sound is latency. That's why Antares developed a fantastic processing engine for Auto-Tune 8 that's faster and more responsive than ever before. When you're running Auto-Tune 8 to correct vocals during tracking or live performances, you can count on smooth, predictable, and totally natural results.

Easy to Use - Auto-Tune 8

While I am not the one using this product, I will pass on our Engineer's information. He finds this product extremely easy to use. The feature he likes the most is that once turned on will correct all notes in a track with out being told. He likes that you can leave slight imperfections as the tuning is done on a sliding scale. He has played the before and after on vocals and the difference is remarkable, but not where it feels fake. The voices retain their own character. This program can be applied to instruments, for example fiddles, and bring the play in tune with the song. Great program and well worth the price. Our studio is really pleased with the results.

Cameron Wheeler

As a mixing engineer, Antares Auto-Tune has become an essential tool for pitch correction on almost every single one of my sessions. It's versatile and easy to use. Auto-Tune is perfect for any vocals in any genre and is a must-have plug-in for vocalists who are interested in pitch correction, or for that now-legendary sound that is widely recognized in the music industry.
