Join Brian Lee White for an in-depth discussion in this video Understanding how Auto-Tune works, part of Pro Tools: Pitch Correction with Antares Auto-Tune Evo.
Pitch correction software is such an integrated part of modern-day recording…production that sometimes we take its existence for granted.…But understanding the basic fundamentals of how pitch, frequency, and the…detection and correction of these elements occur is vital to developing a solid…pitch correction workflow.…So first of all, what is pitch?…Pitch or the perception of high versus low exists everywhere in our day-to-day lives,…from the shriek of a car's brake pads to the low rumble of a passing jetliner.…
Our perception of pitch is directly related to the frequency or speed of a…sound's waveform oscillation, or in other words, how fast the pressure of a…sound wave cycles from positive to negative and back again, much like waves in the ocean.…Now pitch as it relates to musical compositions is much more defined,…but follows the same exact rules as any other frequency-based oscillation.…The speed of a waveform cycle determines the pitch of the note been played.…The faster the oscillation the higher the perceived pitch and vice versa.…
