When we first made AutoPitch for mobile, we wanted to empower you to polish your vocal tracks, create exciting vocal effects, and emphasize phrases with just a smartphone and some inspiration.
True to the style of the BandLab community, you took the ball and ran with it. All across Instagram, YouTube, and TikTok.
But one last detail was missing to help you take your ideas to the moon. We’ve been working hard to make it a reality, and the wait is over: AutoPitch is now available on web!
Where to find AutoPitch Web
To start, head to BandLab.com, login or create an account (if you don’t already have one), and click on in the top right corner. Next, choose the “Voice/Mic” option to create a vocal track.
Within Mix Editor, notice the track properties on the bottom left corner of the screen. You’ll see the new AutoPitch tab right between Source and Effects.
Click on the AutoPitch tab and switch on the enable button in the top left corner, so that it lights up red.
A guide to AutoPitch Web controls
With AutoPitch now enabled, you can connect a microphone and flex those vocals, or drag in some vocal audio from BandLab Sounds or your computer. Right away, you’ll understand how AutoPitch gives your vocals that extra oomph – and it doesn’t stop there. Here’s a breakdown of what the different controls do:
- This switch will toggle the effect on and off so you can easily hear the difference in your track before and after – or if you simply want to turn off AutoPitch.
- This level knob controls the intensity of the AutoPitch effect. Technically, it controls how quickly (in milliseconds) AutoPitch waits before correcting notes that are out of tune. But to the ears, turning this knob affects how heavily or lightly the effect processes your audio.
- The “All notes” button puts AutoPitch into Chromatic mode, which corrects all notes to the nearest ½ step. For example, if notes are represented by keys on a piano, AutoPitch will correct each note to the nearest key on the piano. This mode is good for confident singers, when the project or vocal audio is in a key that falls outside the basic major or minor keys, or when a project contains a change in key. If you’re not sure what key you’re working in, it’s okay to keep the “All notes” mode on until you refine your project or figure out what key you’re in.
- The “Key” button lets you choose from all the basic major and minor keys. In this mode, if a note falls outside the set key, AutoPitch will automatically correct it to the nearest note within your chosen key. This is a good idea if you already know the key of your project, and it usually delivers tighter, more pleasing results.
- The piano roll represents notes on a keyboard and will show you which key AutoPitch is set to when you’re in “Key” mode.
And that’s all you need to know! Gone are the days of only enjoying AutoPitch on your phone. Now go forth and work your magic – we can’t wait to see what you come up with.
