OK so this has been going on for a long time but Slashdot today posted an article on it. It’s called auto-correlation, and it allows singers to have perfect pitch and sing perfectly in tune. But the interesting part of the article is that apparently the inventor never intended for singers to start removing the natural transitions between notes, which is REALLY what pisses me off. But they did, evidently they thought they were cool sounding like robots, and then it kind of just stuck as a requirement for shitty singers in the industry. But I’m happy I suppose because without that lack of note transitions, I might not be able to tell who can’t sing worth their million dollar paycheck.

Boycott any music that uses auto-tune/auto-correlation: support people who PUT EFFORT into sounding good, and take pride in the understanding of music theory.
