Either the jig is up with T-Pain using Auto-Tune or he’s just making a wild statement to promote his new phone app. The R&B/Hip Hop hitmaker, who has made millions of dollars from the vocal/sound enhancement effect, has declared his exit from Auto-Tune.
“I vow right here, right now, to never use Auto-Tune again. I’m onto something that I think is bigger and better called The T-Pain Effect,” T-Pain tells Allhiphop.com.
All of T-Pain’s hit songs have incorporated the voice program, including songs with other artists like Chris Brown, Lil Wayne, Kanye West and many others.
We’re not sure what the T-Pain effect is so we guess fans will have to wait for new material from Pain. As far as his iPhone application, he teamed up with the same company (Izotopes), who makes Auto-Tune, to launch the new product. The App will launch at the upcoming E3 Electronic Entertainment Expo in Los Angeles next week.
Will T-Pain survive if the “T-Pain Effect” is not similar to Auto-Tune?
