"I'm done with Auto-Tune," T-Pain declares.
But wait... naturally, there's more.
[jump] This proclamation doesn't quite mean that Mr. Pain has finally taken Jay-Z's single "D.O.A. (Death of Auto-Tune)" to heart. Naw, he just invented his own vocal manipulation called the T-Pain Effect. Psych!
"I vow right here, right now, to never use Auto-Tune again," he says. "I'm onto something that I think is bigger and better called The T-Pain Effect."
Naturally, this new "product" will be available to consumers as well. T-Pain has joined forces with the horrendously named tech company iZotope
to "bring new vocal processing possibilities to mainstream and professional products worldwide," which means that you can now buy a really expensive version of the "I Am T-Pain" iPhone app for your super-swank cutting edge recording studio. The future is now.
