Sasha Frere-Jones sings, and then auto tune just fixes him right up. It’s an interesting listen.

But here’s the thing … I’ve heard pop singers’ recordings that are far more out of tune than his original take. Maybe perfection isn’t exactly what pop music requires. Sometimes that slightly off key thing … well … it sort of works for me.

Maybe I’m just crazy.

Whatever.

What I want to know is when will they get a device that clicks on to an oboe to automatically and imperceptibly correct out of tune oboe players?

Not that I’d ever play out of tune.
