I'm not 100% sure if it was bernie grundman or Bob Katz but in an interview he said almost every file he gets for mastering is using Autotune. A lot of studios don't even tell the artist they are using it.
He was talking mainly about pop music. I here it all the time. There is a slight graniness on vocals. I bet on the recent terrible sounding Grammys autotune was used on all vocals
"A lot of studios don't even tell the artist they are using (Auto-Tune)."
They believe nobody will notice its use..... But I hear it in too many remastered recordings of classic albums/performers, let alone too many recent albums.
. . . years ago, I was accompanying a cellist for a recording (for her college admissions) at Fantasy Studios in Berkeley (they were also doing the mastering for an Indiana Jones soundtrack at that time), and I asked the engineer recording us if autotune was ever used in classical recordings. His answer was, not surprisingly, "No!".
"...I asked the engineer recording us if autotune was ever used in classical recordings. His answer was, not surprisingly, 'No!'"
He personally may have never done so, but to say it has never been done once in an entire industry is ignorantly presumptive. Not to mention patently wrong.
I never said that autotune was used on classical recordings
