« The most transparent tuning option available »Published on 09/10/12 at 13:32
All of the functions are relatively straightforward once you have familiarized yourself with their operation. Some, like the vibrato for instance, are a bit unnecessary in alot of cases but are nice tools to have in the arsenal when you really need them.
I've been using Tune for about seven years now and I must say that it takes awhile to get used to and a bit longer to master.
First off, as powerful and helpful as this product is, there are a few things you need to know before using it.
-Always apply this plug-in first in your track plug-in list. This is not covered or even mentioned in the manual. Using other plug-ins "behind" it is no problem, but if they are placed before... then Tune will behave very erraticaly to the point of being useless.
-It is immensely helpful to know the key and scale of the song. Applying those values into the interface will make your job significantly easier in most cases.
Tune is a huge CPU hog. If your computer is a really slick machine, perhaps you may be able to get by without any problems. For me, Tune really disagrees with some of my more CPU hungry plug-ins.
At any price, this is the best, most transparent, and easiest to master of all the tuning plug-ins available. It will take you a bit to get there, but trust me, once you've got a handle on it, this plug-in will shine. At some point, after learning it's quirks, you can produce corrected vocal tracks that sound flawless and untouched. Also, you can create synth style voices easily. If you are looking for a high quality tuning plug-in, then you've found it Waves Tune.
