Pitch correction is often treated as one of those “dirty” secrets of audio.
The ability to tune each individual note after the fact might seem like cheating. But vocal correction is nothing to be ashamed of.
Sometimes a vocalist might nail a performance but have a couple of less-than-perfect notes. So why not help them out and tune those few notes?
Thankfully Logic Pro has Flex Pitch for editing pitch. I love Flex Pitch. I love how effortless and intuitive the Flex Pitch editor is for cleaning up performances.
If we’re being honest, sometimes Flex Pitch can get a little lost.
In fact, I’m in the middle of pitch correcting vocals for an album. And sometimes Flex Pitch has:
- Misread all the notes in a region as one single note
- Didn’t generate any notes at all
- Created garbled artifacts and noise when I try pitch correcting
Those 3 things alone can be a total workflow killer. and I can’t blame you if you’ve shaken your fist at your Mac once or twice because of these issues.
There are some simple things you can do to correct these Flex Pitch problems. For example, you can:
- Have Logic Pro reanalyze your audio for Flex Pitch editing
- Separate the problem section as its own region and reanalyze
- Bounce the region in place to create a new Audio File (and reanalyze)
- Or turn on Flex for only the sections that truly need tuning
I dig into all these solutions in this week’s video above.
Don’t let Flex Pitch bum you out. With these tips, you can help Logic Pro out for better Flex Pitch editing.
