Looks like the King of Auto-Tune T-Pain is taking a leave of absence from the throne, permanently. According to AllHipHop.com, the wild card singer/producer said in a quote "I vow right here, right now, to never use Auto-Tune again."
Supporters of the D.O.A. (Death Of Auto-Tune) movement shouldn't get too excited though. Although he won't use the voice altering technology that has swept the music industry for the past couple of years, he'll be replacing it with his own self-made vocal processor.
T-Pain says about the change of hardware "I'm onto something that I think is bigger and better called 'The T-Pain Effect.'" T-Pain has joined forces with audio technology firm Izotope, for the exclusive distribution of the new 'T-Pain Effect.' Sounds a little bit like Auto-Tune Part II, but we can't wait to see what he has in store with this "new" sound.
