First Some Autotune History
The Autotune was invented by Dr. Andy Hildebrand, a research engineer in the oil industry. One of his most significant breakthroughs was developing an auto-correlation algorithm.
The algorithm uses seismic waves to create subsurface maps that oil industry giants use to find potential drill sites. The even bigger Breakthru came when he released that the auto-correlation can be used to pitch-correct music.
Dr. Hildebrand founded Antares Audio Technologies in 1996. The first song that ever used the Autotune effect was Cher’s “Believe” single.
Nowadays, the Autotune effect is used every day to correct vocals in millions of songs. It can be heard in chart-topping artist’s songs and demos created by indie artists.
