AutoTune is a frequency-based sound sampling analysis tool. If that sounds complex, it's because it is, but the appointing is the program works. In simple terms it makes a comparison of the frequency at which your particular sounds are operating, and then automatically tunes according to the target sound frequency.
If you're an audio head, then you've no doubt sat up all night sampling and mixing to get every tuned in your music only to find out that your partner was using a different frequency in his mixing equipment. AutoTune fixes all that.
However, this program is not for the faint of heart. While it is easy to operate, AutoTune is extremely processor and memory intensive application. This means it can take a long time to process data. On average the system uses between 6 and 8 MB of RAM for each file. In other words the more memory you have the faster it runs.
One of the easiest to use digital tuning software that I’ve seen

AutoTune 2.31 is one of the easiest to use audio tuners that I’ve encountered. I don’t really use audio tuning software in my work or hobbies, but I thought why not try this one out for fun. AutoTune is a software application specially designed to analyze WAV sound files and tunes all other audio clips to the pre-determined tune that you specify.
AutoTune has a simple and easy to use interface, allowing users to set their desired note as the base tune for the rest of the other audio files. All you need to do then is drag and drop the other audio samples onto the interface and the software will do the rest. As I used the application, I noticed that there was a significant lag in producing the output. This may be due to the intensive algorithm of the software which is quite complex. I really needed to wait a while for my tuned audio clips.
AutoTune supports WAV files in mono and stereo and it appears that, for a small program, you need a significant amount of RAM space for the software to work in. Overall, AutoTune is a tuning software that may be good for the basic tuning requirements but serious audiophiles will have to look around for more powerful audio editing software to gain access to more features.
- Software has an easy to use interface
- Drag and drop audio files that need tuning right onto the interface
- The software appears to require a lot of RAM space to process files faster
