Rock Band 3 Uses Licensed Pitch-Tuning for Better Accuracy, Performances

Just as Harmonix is making the instrument play in Rock Band 3 more realistic with Pro mode, the vocals are going to be more realistic as well. How? By incorporating the hottest trend in popular music today: auto-tune! Well, "pitch detection and pitch shifting", to be more precise.


iZotope's Technology has announced that its pitch tech is being used in Rock Band 3. During gameplay, players can "enable vocal effects commonly used in the music industry, assisting players to sing on key more easily with pitch correction." Bring on the Cher DLC. No Cher, how about Kanye?

Rock Band 3 is due out this holiday season for the PS3, Xbox 360, and Wii.
