What is pitch correction?
Most vocalists (even the pros) don’t have "perfect pitch." Even the best of singers can fall short of the note they are trying to hit every once in a while; either landing below (flat) or above (sharp) their desired note. Rather than forcing a vocalist to perform take after take in the studio in order to achieve pitch perfection, you can use pitch correction plug-ins to fix any issues with the pitch of a performance.
Pitch correction is the process of modifying the original pitch of a recording to “correct” it and make sure it fits within the key of the song. There are a couple different approaches you can take when adding pitch correction (we’ll cover these later), but first, let’s look at some ways pitch correction can be useful.
Polishing a vocal performance
As a creative effect
Pitch correction is a type of processing that can change a vocalist’s tuning after the recording has taken place. It’s used to improve vocal takes and create unique vocal effects like the signature “hard tuning” sound where the voice takes on a robotic quality.
Pitch correction is done using specialized plugins that analyze the audio and process it to adjust the pitch.
There are two main types of tuning plugins. Graphic tuners allow you to manually adjust the pitch center, pitch drift and even the alignment and amplitude of each note.
Pitch correction is an electronic effects unit or audio software that changes the intonation (highness or lowness in pitch) of an audio signal so that all pitches will be notes from the equally tempered system (i.e., like the pitches on a piano).
