How can I use autotune in MixPad?

There are a lot of autotune plugins available on the internet. Below is our list of autotune plugins that are fully functional, user-friendly, and compatible to use with MixPad:

  • MAutoPitch by MeldaProduction
  • GSnap by GVST
  • Graillon 2 by Auburn Sounds

MAutoPitch by MeldaProduction

When it comes to a straightforward yet exceptionally sounding automatic pitch correction plugin fabricated for vocals and other monophones, MAutoPitch is a very promising choice. Apart from audio fine-tuning, innovative features such as format shift and stereo-expansion is also catered by MAutoPitch.

  1. Download the latest plugin at meldaproduction.com/downloads.
  2. Install the executable file
    • Please note the following during installation:
      • You don’t need to install the other components, just the VST plugin
      • Only select the MAutoPitch effect. You can otherwise install the other effects you would like.
      • The location of the VST plugins directory (32-bit). You will use this later in MixPad.
  3. Open MixPad.
  4. Go to the Home tab. Click the Options button.
  5. In MixPad Options, select VSTs.
  6. Under VST paths, click Add Path button. Browse to the location in step 3. Click Ok.
  7. Select a track. Click the Fx button.
  8. In Effects window, click + Add Effect -> VST Effects -> MAutoPitch.

The plugin has two main sections. The standard pitch correction settings are in Automatic Tuning - depth, frequency base, retune speed, and a detune knob. The sound manipulators/operators can be found in Effects - the width, formant and dry/wet controls are compiled within the Effects.

The Key signature controls are found on the bottom portion of the plug in window. Ensure that you always begin with picking the right key signature for your vocal setting. If your track is in E minor, you should pick E minor. If you do not know the key signature of your song, simply select the Chromatic scale to let the plug in determine each note to its closest tone.

Note: The plugin itself is fully functional. But upgrading is necessary to remove the info bar message at the bottom.

GSnap by GVST

GVST’s GSnap is a favorable go-to for many in recent years. Although most would prefer to use it for subtle correction, it can take one’s vocals to T-Pain level if that’s what the user aspires to.

  1. Open MixPad.
  2. Select a track. Click the Fx button.
  3. In the Effects window, click + Add Effect -> VST Effects -> GSnap.

The main controls are positioned in three sections:

  • Detection - min freq, max freq, gate, and speed
  • Correction - threshold, amount, attack, and release
  • MIDI - pitch bend, vibrato, vib speed, and calibrate

GSnap will initially detect the signal pitch. Through Min and Max Freq parameter adjustments, the pitch detector is bound to better comprehend the necessary corrections for the range of frequencies. During silent passages, the Gate could assist the pitch detector in disregarding the background noise.

The speed of the pitch detection may be adjusted with the help of the Speed Knob. While the default setting is best, lower values will allow for faster pitch detection but will also give higher chances of inexact readings. While the MIDI correction is operated by MIDI data that even allows fitting a recording to a new melody, Pitch correction on the other hand can be customized to fixed scale or MIDI - where fixed scale correction has snap-notes.
