Wings of Pegasus: Visualization of auto-tune

This makes me really upset.

The example being used is Michael Bublé, who by all standards can sing on tune just fine, as mentioned by Fil. Someone, at some point, decided that wasn't good enough; that authenticity or mere human capacity was a weakness.

Auto-tune used as a parodic instrument of its own I understand. Used to correct outright mistakes in a pinch, fine, whatever, that's the deal with editing in the first place, and quite often you wouldn't come close to an "album version" by listening to any single take, even the best one.

But this, this fetishization of the perfect, digital hit of a key, roasting the analog and dynamic nature of not only the human voice but organic sound, even when the source material is a talented vocalist in real life, is just absurd.
