Could you guys do me a HUGE favor and listen to these two clips. The first is a snippet from the track I posted above with heavy pitch correction and the second is completely untuned and raw. Both are ran through the exact same FX chain so they are identical in every way except for the tuning on the vocals.
It will be a really, really big help if anyone can chime in and let me know if the pitch correction is what's killing the performance. It's fine if you say the vocal still kinda sucks untuned and that I need to really work on my singing...but I just need to know how much pitch correction is playing a role in the feedback you guys are giving. THANK YOU!
This is much better than anything I came out with when I first started. I'd say definitely stick with the untuned vocals... in fact I'd go one further and suggest that you try adding a slight amount of detuning using the unison module (it might not work but it's certainly worth a shot).
Pitch correction generally sounds pretty naff. It's best to be out of tune and sound like you intended it that way :P
Keep it up man.
