Audacity Auto-tune

Audacity is an open-source platform that allows you to make and edit any audio recording. It runs on different platforms such as Windows, Mac, and Linux. It is also a free software so you don’t need to spend just to get it on your device.

Audacity supports numerous plugins and one of them is for auto-tuning. The original Autotune is very expensive and not all people can afford it. However, you can find another option to be able to do auto-tuning.

Before you download and install the auto-tune plugin, you should first know how to autotune in audacity. After that, you can easily correct the pitch of your recordings once you have downloaded the plugin.

Getting Audacity Auto-tune Plugin

One of the best alternatives you can get to have an autotune effect in Audacity is the GSnap. It is a free plugin that you can easily download and add into the Audacity’s library.

Here’s how you can download and install GSnap autotune plugin on Audacity.

Step 1. On your browser, go to Google and type “GVST – GSnap” and open the first website that appeared on the result.

Step 2. On the page, click the Download button and it will open the page where the available plugins are located.

Step 3. Find GSnap on the list of the plugins available. You cannot find an auto-tune word since what is written there is “Pitch correction.”

Step 4. Click on the GSnap plugin and choose your platform (32-bit/64-bit). This is for Windows only. If your PC is running a Mac OS, there is a separate link for the GSnap.

Step 6. On your computer, locate the file you have downloaded. It is in a zipped format.

Step 7. Extract all the files from the zipped folder and find the .dll file. Copy and paste it to the plugin directory inside Audacity’s folder. It will now be installed and you can see it on the “Effects” tab in Audacity.

That’s it! You now have an alternative autotune program to use in Audacity.
