T-Pain Announces That He Will No Longer Use Auto-Tune

Singer/rapper T-Pain to ditch auto-tune for new sound technique he calls "The T-Pain Effect."

In what may be the most shocking Hip Hop news of the year, singer/rapper T-Pain announced earlier this week that he will never again use the highly popular, vocal manipulator auto-tune.

Instead T-Pain explained that he will now use a new vocal technique called “The T-Pain Effect.”

"I vow right here, right now, to never use Auto-Tune again," T-Pain explained to AllHipHop.com. "I'm onto something that I think is bigger and better called 'The T-Pain Effect.'"

Although auto-tune has been around for quite some time T-Pain played a vital role in bringing the technique into mainstream Hip Hop.

T-Pain is expected to go into more depth on what exactly “The T-Pain Effect” is on June 7th at the Electronic Entertainment Expo. He will be working directly with audio technology company Izotope to develop the sound.
