    So everyone knows the bane of the overuse of pitch correction in recording today, but recently I've found another use for it all together. Logic Studio has a pitch correction tool in it (I don't know about the other Logics; someone feel free to comment), and I've been using it to work on my pitch in vocals.

    Once you find the key of your song, and you input it into the pitch correction program, sing along with any given song while watching the pitch correction tool. It's great to help you find your pitch and get accustomed to your voice at its correct pitch.

    From a friendly mind to yours, I hope this can help some people who are looking for other tools or tricks to help them along.

    Best wishes :dude

    I don't have Logic, but I like that idea. That's quite clever.

    I would do a really broad AT, on a whole vocal track, if a singer was having serious pitch problems.

    I'd send him home with a mix of that and he'd listen for a week or so, to hear what an in-tune vocal sounds like.

    Usually, he'd be able to do it just fine.

    I usually put the correction speed between 0 - 80 and watch the lights flicker on the "keyboard" to see where I need to pull up.

    It's just a fun little experiment.

    Very cool tip, although I'm beyond help...
    And the plug-in is in Logic Express too, by the way.
