Sing Like T-Pain With New Auto-Tune App For iPhone

You can't turn on the radio without hearing the impact Auto-Tune, a software program that corrects a singer's pitch. Whether that's good or bad is up for debate, but that hasn't stopped both schools of thought from cashing in on the craze. Jay-Z pumped out his anti-ballad 'Death to Auto-Tune,' and, on the other side, T-Pain now further cements his status as 'King of Auto-Tune' with a new iPhone application, as if there were any question after "On A Boat" (after the break, explicit language).

The 'I Am T-Pain App' helps anyone with Apple's mobile device (and $2.99 in their pocket) sing in that same robotic tone as the aforementioned musician, according to Digital Beat. Just hold the phone close to your mouth, belt out a few lines (they don't have to be from a T-Pain song, but the app does provide lyrics), and the program automatically corrects your pitch. It'll be just like you're in the studio with T-Pain, minus the bottle of cognac and bling.

You can even share the recordings you make with friends, which opens the door for some serious irony if a potential robo-wailer dethrones T-Pain because of the app. How funny would it be if someone became a Web-sensation and signed a record deal all because of 'I Am T-Pain?' Picture it: T-Pain, top hat and cardboard box in hand, walking out of a studio with tears pouring from behind those ridiculous sunglasses. One can only dream. [From: Digital Beat]
