New in Auto-Tune 8 is Antares’ revolutionary new Flex-Tune real-time pitch correction technology. While providing the seamless, natural pitch correction and audio quality that Auto-Tune is known for, Flex-Tune correction gives singers unmatched freedom to exercise their vocal creativity.

In addition to the option of Flex-Tune, Auto-Tune 8 features a new ultra-low latency mode for use during tracking or for live performance, along with a variety of workflow enhancements designed to let you address your pitch and time correction tasks with a maximum of creativity and a minimum of frustration

Auto-Tune 8

Freedom of Expression

Whether you want to quickly touch up a few questionable notes or meticulously polish an entire performance, Auto-Tune 8 offers the natural sounding, pristine results you desire. Auto-Tune 8 comes loaded with new features, including Flex-Tune natural real-time pitch correction, an ultra low-latency mode and a more customizable interface to streamline your editing process. 

Auto-Tune 8 works in two modes: Automatic Mode, designed to be intuitive for users of all abilities and a more technical Graphical Mode for advanced users.

For most common pitch problems, Auto-Tune 8's Automatic Mode detects input pitch and instantaneously adjusts it to the closest pitch in a user-specified scale (including major, minor, chromatic and 26 historical and microtonal scales).

 Auto-Tune 8's Graphical Mode, used for meticulous pitch and time editing, displays the performance's detected pitch envelope and allows you to modify pitch and timing with a variety of graphics tools. This mode gives complete control over the correction or modification of the most elaborate pitch and rhythmic gestures.

Key New Auto-Tune 8 Features

Automatic Mode

Correction Style ControlFlex-Tune Natural Pitch Correction Technology: Other real-time pitch correction methods, including previous versions of Auto-Tune, pull every note towards a scale note. In contrast, Flex-Tune only provides correction when the vocalist approaches a scale note.  At all other times, they are free to sing with whatever vocal gestures best express their emotional connection to their song, secure in the knowledge that Auto-Tune 8 will pass them through, exactly as they are sung. 

Low Latency Mode: Auto-Tune 8's new ultra-low latency mode allows for Auto-Tune use when tracking or during live performance, letting vocalists monitor their performance with no disorienting delay.

Graphical Mode

Editing Tools Active During Playback: For those who prefer editing on the fly or with looped segments, Auto-Tune 8's editing tools are now active during playback, so you never has to stop and restart just to hear the results of an edit.

Audio Feedback of Note Object Pitch: Auto-Tune's Note mode was already the easiest way to re-pitch already recorded melodies. In Auto-Tune 8, you can choose to have any note edits provide audio feedback of the note's pitch, so selecting new notes is just a matter of using your ears.

Hide or Show Amplitude Envelope in Main Edit Display: You can now choose to hide or show the amplitude envelope plot in the main edit window.

Hide or Show Envelope Display: You can now choose to hide or show the dedicated envelope display. This is particularly useful when working on a laptop, where screen real estate is at a premium.

Increased Maximum Timeline Resolution in Bars + Beats Mode: The maximum resolution of the timeline in Bars + Beats mode has been increased to 16th notes.

Automatic Update Notification: To make sure you always have the latest and the greatest, Auto-Tune 8 will notify you whenever an update to the plug-in or an upgrade is available.

The Professional Standard

For well over a decade and a half, Auto-Tune has stood alone as the worldwide standard in professional pitch (and more recently, time) correction. Now, with Auto-Tune 8, the introduction of Flex-Tune establishes a new standard of natural real-time pitch correction. Also, with Auto-Tune 8, it's virtually impossible to know that Auto-Tune had been used on a track.

Auto-Tune 8: Enjoy the freedom of expression.
