    A nice tool, even for the professional.

    Okay, so it is designed for the "Auto-Tune/T-Pain" sound and it does this perfectly. Just as expected. If you want this sound, this is it!

    However, there are other great reasons to use this plug-in. I own Melodyne Editor, AutoTune Evo, Auto Tune EFX and Waves Tune and they each serve a purpose.

    I find myself using this plug-in (although version1, I don't own EFX2) when I am stacking tons of back-up vocals that need some pitch correction (using the gentler Pitch Correction setting). I choose this plug-in over all others for 2 reasons.

    1. It is very light on the CPU. I can get way more Auto-Tune EFX plug-ins than I can get Auto-Tune Evo's in a project. So if I am stacking 20 vocal tracks (which has been the case a lot for me lately), I can throw this on a ton of tracks.

    2. If your DAW allows you to do automation across multiple tracks at once (such as Pro Tools), then you can pitch correct multiple tracks at once by enabling automation on the individual notes across all tracks and then editing the automation on one of them. So lets say you are in the key of F and there is a point where the singer continuosly was singing F flat, so auto-tune is thinking it is suppose to be an E on a bunch of them, then you can turn off "E" for that moment across mutliple instances at once.

    The new "Auto-Motion" feature in EFX 2 looks and sounds silly to me, but I don't have version 2 to really comment.

    Auto-tune EFX2

    This software was so easy to use. The hardest part is finding out what pitch you are singing in,,,

    A little too perfect.

    It does what it's supposed to do. It forces the notes in tune.

    I wish it had more adjustability. The problem I had was if you slide up to notes when you sing, this won't help. It won't let you sing out of tune. And sliding up to a note is technically out of tune. So it jumps from one note to the next. It would be nice if it had an "attack" feature that allowed the beginning of the note to ease in to tune. But this is simply a product feature suggestion. As it stands it works perfectly well.

    It does the trick.

    Admittedly, I am not an auto-tune afficianado. Honestly, the trend is a little annoying. However, because demos are a nice source of extra income for my studio, I bought this product because ever so often, a youngster comes in and wants this "signature sound". This plug-in seems, to my ears, completely adequate. There may be more advanced versions/products, but if you want a quick and easy way to obtain this sound, this plug-in is for you.

    Not really impressed with this version of autotune. You Can pretty much get the same end result using free plugins.
