Auto Tune/Vo-Coder (T-Pain Voice)

I will be recording my first track tommorow. Using Audacity of course. I would like to sing the Hook/Chorus using a T-Pain effect. (Lil Wayne, Snoop Dogg, and Various others have used it.) I was wondering if there is a way in Audacity to be able to do this?

If anyone can point me in the right direction, I will appreciate it. :smiley:


someone please answer this guy

Somebody Google the effect. I’ve never heard of it.

Point us to a sound track with the effect? iTunes references work.

You mean like the Peter Frampton effect in that Geico commercial? Unfortunately, the guy who posted it on YouTube pulled it down. That’s a vocoder and I think there’s a whole thread on how to do that. Search the forum.


Here it is…


Audacity does not have an “Autotune” plug-in.
Apparently Antares Auto-tune kind of works if you install the VST bridge, but is almost unusable due the lack of the custom GUI.

In Audacity, the closest that you will come is probably by using the vocoder as suggested by Koz, but if you need the real T-Pain effect then you will need to use a VST host program (possibly Reaper, Cubase, Sonar, Wavosaur…) and use either Antares Auto-tune or GSnap.
