I found a wonderful little plugin called GSnap from GVST. It is an auto-tune effect, much like Antares AutoTune, except it is free. It comes with presets for “Subtle” and “Not So,” and is adjustable to all points in between. I have had good results with it so far, and would highly recommend it. Read on for my experiences with it and other pitch-correction plugins.
I tried the Melodyne demo, but could not get it to receive audio from Sonar. I was about to pony up for an upgrade to Sonar Producer Edition, so I could get the V-Vocal plugin, but found some threads in the Cakewalk forums about it being flakey and unstable.
Eventually, I found GSnap, and gave it a try. Stability wise, it has been rock solid, and I just finished a project where we used it on at least four vocal tracks at the same time. It’s easy to use, has useful presets, and sounds good as well. I also like watching the real-time display showing the differences between input and output.23 comments
