Join Brian Lee White for an in-depth discussion in this video Pitch correction strategies: Building harmonies, part of Pro Tools Projects: Pitch Correction with Antares Auto-Tune Evo.

Now I'm going to mute everything on that track.…
I am just going to double-click that with the Selector tool and choose Command+M…or Ctrl+M on the PC.…And I'm going to go in and find just the phrase that I want to add harmony to.…(Man singing: So take me down, take me down, and...)…I think I want to do "take me down take me down."…So I let him say "so" and then I'll do "take me down take me down."…So I'm going to take this here and I'm going to cut that separate region and un-mute that.…
