Auto-Tune from Antares has been adopted worldwide and is one of the largest-selling audio plug-ins of all time. Auto-Tune corrects intonation problems in vocals or solo instruments, in realtime, without distortion or artifacts, while preserving all of the expressive nuance of the original performance”with audio quality so pristine that the only difference between what goes in and what comes out is the intonation. All with a user-interface that is a model of clarity, speed, and ease-of-use.
For most common pitch problems, Auto-Tune 5's Automatic Mode instantaneously detects the pitch of the input, identifies the closest pitch
in a user-specified scale (including minor, major, chromatic, and 26 historic and microtonal scales), and corrects the input pitch to match
the scale pitch. A Retune Speed control lets you match the retune rate to virtually any performance style. For meticulous tweaking, the Graphical Mode displays the performance's detected pitch envelope and allows you to draw in the desired pitch using a variety of graphics tools. This mode gives complete control over the correction or modification of the most elaborate expressive gestures.
Auto-Tune is used daily by thousands of audio professionals around the world. Whether to save studio and editing time, ease the frustration
of endless retakes, to save that otherwise once-in-a-lifetime performance, or to create striking special effects, Auto-Tune 5 is the tool of choice.
Key new Auto-Tune 5 features include:
Improved pitch detection algorithm: While Auto Tune's patented pitch detection technology has always provided unmatched speed and accuracy, Auto-Tune 5 introduces improvements in performance with marginal quality (noisy, poorly isolated, etc.) audio.
A sleek new interface: As Auto-Tune's features have proliferated from version to version, we have continually focused on maintaining its ease of use. With Auto-Tune 5, we have undertaken a complete graphic redesign. The result is both easy on the eyes and logically groups related controls for intuitive functionality.
Consolidated Pitch Tracking control: The previously separate Automatic and Graphical Mode Tracking controls have been consolidated into a single control and relocated to the Options dialog for set-it-and-forget-it simplicity.
Automatic Mode Features::
Humanize function: For those concerned about pitch correction that is too perfect, the Humanize function allows you to set a fast retune speed for short notes, while still allowing natural variation in held notes, for results that are even more natural and realistic.
Realtime natural vibrato adjustment: The new realtime Natural Vibrato function allows you to modify (either increasing or decreasing) the depth of any vibrato that is present in the original performance.
Graphical Mode Features:
Larger Pitch Edit Display: As you've no doubt noticed, the Pitch Edit Display is now bigger. Lots bigger. Sync to host transport (host dependent): For hosts that provide valid time information, Auto-Tune 5 will now maintain sync with the host program. Once you have tracked audio and created correction curves, you can move around in your track at will. No more having to always start playback at exactly the same location.
Selectable Clock Source: For hosts that do not provide valid time information, Auto-Tune 5's clock display and selection functions let you use an internal time reference for Auto-Tune 4 style operation.
Realtime pitch tracking display: During the Track Pitch process, the graphic representation of the pitch and envelope will be displayed in realtime as the audio plays.
Full-time correction mode (host dependent): Whenever Auto-Tune 5 is not specifically tracking audio, Auto-Tune 5 will be operating in correction mode. There is no longer any need to press a Correct Pitch button. Besides being convenient, that makes possible the following feature:
Multiple simultaneous Graphical Mode instances (host dependent): You can now have multiple instances of Auto-Tune Graphical Mode operating on different tracks simultaneously, even if their windows are not open. In previous versions, since you had to have plug-in windows open to engage Correct Pitch mode, only open instances could be active. No longer.
Editing functions no longer modal: You can now use all of the graphical editing features while Auto-Tune 5 is either tracking or correcting pitch.
Enhanced Envelope Display functionality: We've made changes to the Envelope Display to make it much more useful for quick and easy navigation around your audio:
Realtime graphical vibrato depth adjustment: The Adjust Vibrato control allows you to modify the depth of vibrato in your audio while preserving the contour of the original vibrato. Moving this control results in a real-time graphical representation of the resulting vibrato contour.
Dedicated Snap To Note button: When using the Line Tool, clicking this button constrains the tool to exact scale notes.
Dedicated Clear All Data function: Provides a convenient method to instantly clear all saved tracked audio and correction curve data. Compatibility with Pen Tablet Input: With a pen tablet, you can control Auto-Tune 5's graphical tools (as well as all the other controls) using a familiar pen-style input device. A pen tablet can offer increased drawing accuracy with less wrist stress in long sessions.

I found this package to much better than the official Antares sales blurb. It's light years better than the ATR-1a. It works great and is very easy to use. It does eveything it's supossed to with precision and ease. It works wonders on smoothing out seperate harmony tracks. The only down side is that is NOT made clear to the buyer that you must purchase an additional Ilok Key (and additional $40)to make it go past the initial 10 day trail. The Ilok Key should be included with the software.
