Maroon 5 singer Adam Levine is the latest artist to offer a thumbs down to Auto-Tune, telling his Twitter followers (@adamlevine) earlier today:
Dear auto tune. Go away. You are infecting music and wounding my soul. We don’t need you. And anyone who does shouldn’t be singing anyway.
Listen I Iove me some auto tune depending on the way it’s used… But it’s spun out of control and has sucked the life out of music.
There are obviously exceptions to this bold statement. However in general I think it has to go… it’s been a good run auto tune. Real good.
