Vocal drift

Good day! Does anyone have any ideas on correcting vocal drift? The vocal wavers in pitch on some notes that are held for a second or two.

Is this a problem with the computer or a problem with the singer?

Thanks DVDdoug. The singer holds notes in places but wavers in pitch.

You can try [u]GSnap[/u] (FREE), the famous* [u]Auto Tune[/u] ($100 and up), or [u]Melodyne[/u] ($100 and up).

I’ve never used any of them.

Nether Auto Tune or Melodyne support Audacity, but I believe you can run Melodyne stand-alone.


  • Auto Tune is sort-of famous for being used as a weird vocal special-effect but most of the time it’s used for transparent pitch correction and you can’t tell it’s being used.

The free version of the Grallion2 plugin has pitch-correction.

Thanks. I don’t know if I’ve installed this correctly on Windows. If I have, then I still need to know how to add it as a plugin on Audacity.

Thanks. Do I need to install on my computer also, or just drop it into audacity? I’m running portable, and it would be nice if my plugins could be portable also. But the installation instructions that came with the plugin said I install it on my computer. I’m confused.

I’m looking in my audacity folder and found a place forVST plugins. I’ll try that.

Now, I’ve added it, but it’s not showing up on the effects list.

Adding it to the plugins folder is not enough:
you have to enable the plugin in the plugin-manager, then it appears on the effects list, see …

I’m not seeing it in the manager.

That’s where I am looking, but it’s not there. There were several versions to choose from. Can I just install all of them and see if one works?

Currently only 32-bit VST2 types work in Audacity.

OK. I’ve got it working. Thanx
