This installed without any problems. I had no compatibility issues on my computer. The configuration and setup was very simple and straightforward. You pretty much just click Next a bunch of times. The manual is pretty big, so there aren't really many questions that they leave unanswered. It is also clearly written and easy to read. Definitely not a throw away manual.

SUITABILITY/PERFORMANCE

I have a Dell computer with an Intel processor, and I use windows XP and Cubase for this program. It works very easily since you can get it in VST format. Auto tune doesn't really use very much CPU on my computer, so I put it on all of the vocal tracks in my home studio to get the pitch right. It can be a little bit buggy I have found, and has caused a few crashes, but it's not really a major problem.

OVERALL OPINION

I have been using auto tune for years. Obviously the benefit is improved pitch for singers, and really, most singers could use it. Unless you are Mariah you could stand to have a bit tighter pitch a lot of the time. If you are singing close enough, auto tune is even hard to hear. Of course, if used in an evil way you can make an effect out of it, like that famous Cher song. My least favorite thing is that sometimes it picks the wrong notes to try to tune to, and you have to tell it that it's wrong, which can be kind of time consuming considering how often this happens. The better the singer, the better this program works. You obviously can't record someone singing way off and expect this to solve all your problems. It can sound very digital and robotic if you have to tune it too far. Overall, it is very easy to use. There are advanced features for more time consuming, but more perfectionist editing. For people like me I just want a quick fix, and that's where auto tune shines compared to the competition. It is kind of pricey, but since vocals are so important it's worth investing in making them sound better. Considering that it's a fair value. I would buy this again.
