I talked to a friend at work today, and he said thatI could buy a "vocal box". It helps you to sing tones correctly. Does anyone knows how this works?? My friend did'nt know so much about it, only that when you sing a tone almost correct, this box tunes the tone to the correct sound.


Hopefully someone understands what Im looking for..

Its an autotuner, it fixes the tones but kills the emotion of the voice, Thom Yorke used it a lot on the Kid A and Amnesiac sessions, not becasue there was somehing wrong with his voice but because he thought the effect sounded cool

phew - i was fearing a new surge of vocalists relying on this pedal made in hell to fix their voice on the fly and making all vocals perfectly in tune till the end of time... i know this sound you're describing and i like how thom used it
