The vocal effect/enhancer known as Auto-tone is prevalent in today's music, particularly in mainstream Pop. Positively, interesting vocal effects can be created and enjoyed. Negatively, however, this technology is being used to make up for the lack of singing talent in today's mainstream music. Singers just don't have to be able to sing anymore to be popular.
What's YOUR take on auto-tone? Do the creative advantages equal the negatives? Or are the positives outweighed? Is this technology useful at all?
