Vocally Speaking
Internal Auto-Tune
What does that mean?

Nowadays, almost every artist and especially 'so called' artist in the recording studio using auto-tune and, or a more modern version of it,  Melodine. What's that, the not so musically experienced reader may ask? That is the computer software which is designed to correct pitch for semi tone-deaf "artists". Many years ago, I received a call from one of the recording studios pleading for help. The person who called me was almost screaming over and over "Please help, our bands are breaking auto-tune"!

How so, I exclaimed! Is it even possible? Apparently, IT WAS!

Next, When I went to a prominent recording studio with my client, I asked a well known engineer/producer if it is actually possible to "break" an auto-tune? He said "absolutely"! He explained that it meant that the singer of the band was so far off in pitch, that even auto-tune was unable to correct it. Those days, the melodine software was not available yet. (It probably would be able to tolerate more). Either way, wouldn't it be easier if the singer would've had a talent in the first place and also would've been taught how to access his "internal auto-tune" through vocal training?

Once the artist is able to access his voice more so by design and not just by "playing it by ear", the pitch and improved and distinct tone in the vocal performance should not be a problem. When the alignment between subconscious and conscious mind is achieved, as well as connection  between the "picture" instilled in the mind and the physical body, which plays the role of "the so to speak instrument" is also achieved, the voice in its entirety and purity will be sent to it's aimed destination in its perfect pitch and desired projection.

This is "in a nutshell" a description of how the "Vocal Science™" method works. In other words, "work smart, sing in tune and comply with standerds of professional singing"...
