T-Pain Deads Auto-Tune

Welp, it’s been real. After six years of using Auto-Tuning, T-Pain tells AHH that as of today, he’s no longer going to use the technology.

“I vow right here, right now, to never use Auto-Tune again. I’m onto something that I think is bigger and better called ‘The T-Pain Effect.'”

This calls for a moment of silence. Unleash the flutes on ’em Guru!

    Death of autotune?

    moment of silence

    dope singer? dont see why he would use it anyway? wise choice tho that shit was annoying and overuse

  • So that means he deads himself too, right? T-Pain w/o auto-tune will go as unnoticed as if Stephen Hawking went w/o his computer that talks for him.

  • Jimmy, The Creator

  • Your mother’s “friend”

    I never had a problem with T pain using auto tune coz most of his songs were at least listenable , the problem came when ron browz et al started running it into the ground

  • BRIX

    Translation: “I won’t be using the software by the company that created Autotune, but I will be working with another software company to create what I’ll call the “T-Pain effect”.

    Fuck outta here…that’s like saying what’s the difference between a “soda” and a “pop”? Not a damn thing!

  • Haters Aint Shit


  • TheCool

    Yu know what’s even funnier then this? That he actually can sing. Watch him live, 0 autotune and the man kills it. Stop assuming shit.

  • TimLeeVAStandUp

  • Big Bank Take Little Bank

    It will make no difference, you will always suck, T-Pain!!!!!!!!


  • Donn


    Auto Tune will never go away. ITs a pitch correcting plug in. EVERY singer uses it. Beyonce, Whitney Houston, Jennifer Hudson, Rihanna, EVERYBODY. Engineers use it to make sure everything is on key when mixing the vocals. It was T-Pain who chose to turn up the effect and make that robotic voice sound noticable.

    I don’t mind auto tune if it makes sense in the song and doesnt’ take away from the music. Do You T-Pain!!!

  • should be interesting how he sounds without Auto-Tune though

  • Belize

    ya right. second he drops somethin not auto-tuned, he’ll be “T-WHO??”

  • T-Pain’s career is now officially over lmfao! Oh what… what career??? EXACTLY!

  • Jaymalls

    @DONN do your research hoe cake. T-Pain wasnt the 1st 2 “Turn Up The Effect.” Their was a whole list of people that did it before him. He was just the 1st rappper/ fake R&B artist 2 use it on every song.

  • Jimmy, The Creator

    @jaymalls aka Gay-Balls… u know wat the fuck he means bitch ass nigga… niggas never mention auto tune untill T-Pain did it bitch… So sit down ho…Cole World Bitch

  • jams

    Now t-pain you can go away.

  • Gond

    You bitches proved exactly how much of haters you really are. What he means is that he has an enhanced auto-tune effect designed specially for him.

    However, even if he means that he will completely abandon the technology, it only makes sense as he has recently transitioned from singing to rapping, this is notable on his recent mixtape prEVOLVEr.

    Get your facts straight before posting shit about him

  • niggarich

    jay z Killed Tpain now retire and Never come back

  • lol. t-pain effect = Autotune + Vocoder or some eeeevil shit.

  • yoyoyo

    This is pretty much announcing his retirement hahaha. He can’t do shit without autotune.

  • Dashing

    ^ Wow. Are people really that dumb? He literally said “I’m onto something that I think is bigger and better called ‘The T-Pain Effect.’”

    He obviously has partnered up with a company to create his own software to make money off of. Similar to the T-Pain app that’s on the iPhone

    And as others have said, he can actually sing fine without Auto Tune. He’s also a great producer too so his career would be fine without it….But that’s his trademark at this point so he’s gonna stick with the same sound and just brand the effect as his own since he’s already made Antares (the company that makes AutoTune) a shitload of money without getting anything in return

  • Its the same thing he’s just creating a plug-in with his name so he can get paid.. Too late buddy nobodys buying that cause Auto-Tune is already played…

  • cnow

    lmfao 2 jz song. roscoe dash jus gon keep autotuning an be the new hook man

  • Just Saying

    he can’t sing for shit without autotune. If you know what auto tune is and how it works…the worse you sing the more the vocoder w/e pitch correction effect takes in place…T-Pain’s pitch correction takes effect the whole time he sings and you can tell when the pitch is corrected. When Akon uses auto-tune it sounds different then Pain cuz he can actually sing. Have you heard T-Pain talk. He sounds like a black Forrest Gump #Real Talk.

    Also I think he’s gonna create his own VST/RTAS plug in which will probably be more user friendly then Auto-Tune. I hate using Auto-Tune when I record cats who want to use it. Its a PAIN in the ass to set up and tweek with.

    I think it’s a good look. He new track “Best Love Song” is on point. Peep it >>> http://vevo.ly/jjfad0
