Autotune Your Voice (SINGING) in Audition CC

LEARN ABOUT AUTOTUNING AND HAVE SOME FUN BY USING AUTOTUNE ON A VOCAL TRACK! | We’ll use the Auto Pitch Correction Feature in Audition to have some fun with a vocal track and learn a little about autotune in Adobe Audition CC as well.

In this Audition tutorial, I’ll use a vocal track I put together using lyrics inspired by some YouTube song I saw a while ago that used Jason Mraz’s “I’m Yours” song as a backing track. Here we’ll explore how to get the right scale and key for your vocals and even touch on the very unknown “Calibration A4” option in the auto pitch correction feature that Audition offers us.

Tutorial Recording Notes:

Disclaimer: these are the actual notes I used to record this video and are written in a language you may or may not understand. Hopefully, you find them useful or cool.

  1. You can go into the multitrack and add some reverb with the great haul setting to add some flair to it. Might need to tune some of those settings.
  2. Effects Rack: Mix should be set to 100%!
  3. Auto Pitch correction new with all copies of Audition beginning with CS6 onward.
  4. Go to 9.473 on the timeline and trim up the music track and but both vocal and music tracks to the first frame (turn on snapping if needed)
  5. This effect can be applied to the Effect rack in the Multitrack environment or applied directly to a piece of audio.
  6. Chromatic scale = Audition doing its best to guess which scale this is.
  7. Use higher attack and sensitivity for more of a pop or hip-hop vocal type of effect that you hear so often these days. Pretty cool.
  8. Go with Major C, 10–200, still sound bad so change the Calibration A45 to 410Hz instead of 440HZ.
  9. Knowing my vocal and audio limitations, it’s a good bet that I’ve messed something up because 410 sounds way better than 440 in my case. Your project may be different.
  10. Add Studio Reverb to the track as well. Choose Vocal Reverb (large) preset and let it ride.

Yeah, the YouTube Adpocalypse I felt it.
I used to have good ads but they’ve been augmented.
A bit of a setback,
You think I can relax?
Before I have to shut down cuz I ain’t made some money
My bank account’s empty & I lost my honey.
My stocks have crashed and burned
Even Warren Buffet’s concerned. But…
I. Can’t. Get. Answers. No more.
I’m sure. Bye bye YouTube.
I’m Pooooor

    Nice video. I had no idea that was in Audacity.

    The tune may be written on the ‘net in many places as key of C, but it’s really in B. The official video is in B and in the live video Jason has a capo on the guitar. The resulting key is B.

    In standard tuning A is 440 hz. It happens that A flat is 415.3. By changing the standard tuning reference, you have basically just tuned the vocal to key of C set a half step flat. Also known as the key of B.

    The fact that you did that by ear is pretty dang groovy.
