    I hope you're joking! success = hard work and hard work again and again!
    Success is not for the lazy! Start your day right,change your way of thinking, Do what 99% aren't doing.

    Honing your skills, learning millions of techniques in every aspect of production have effects on boosting sense of self-esteem but won't necessarily guarantee your success in your career as an art creator.

    Social taste has been poisoned by garbage. Who knows what the antidote is?:dunno:

    It is my personal belief and i don't expect all of the friends here to embrace it but, anyone who cannot indulge in some sweet pop music have lost their "inner youth". And i'm not talking 'bout your virginity boys and gals nor am i talking 'Justin Bieber pop. All people who take their "ears" seriously can tell the difference between canned products and music crafted from the heart, no matter the genre. It took me many years to shake off the snobbiness of the "deep thinking" indie artist from my skin. I do think it's made me a better person and better in my music craft.
    So as it is, i don't give a single fuck if what i hear has autotune or not, if it's a great multi million production or just a song with a guitar recorded in a barn. If it's made with love and its music and/or lyrics can captivate me, i'm all for it. Like this :

    Ps: @foster911 and all the other Fosters, the human voice is the ultimate instrument on this planet. It is something truly unique for each and everyone of us, learning to appreciatte it can open your ears and eyes to "see" the whole picture rather than a fraction of it.
    Choosing to pigeonhole yourself in a corner because hiding there may suit your insecurity is neither healthy nor artistic. Don't feed the enemy:



    All the best guys:)

    ohhh you had to go and open that can of worms..

    1st I recall "hearing" autotune... was in that Cher song from the 90's ( ?) if that's what it was called...
    it did not bother me.. because it was used obviously...it was a vocal "effect"... now they may have used it to help
    the old girl hit her other notes as well.. my ears were not and are not golden enough to tell the difference..

    now when I hear current pop music, and the voice just sounds "too" perfect.. or processed to ridiculousness.. however crisp
    it may be.. it does not ring anything like true for me....

    I have probably been duped by plenty of songs where "voice tuning" tricks have been used... but when the blandness of it
    becomes overwhelming.. ( perhaps even subconsciously ) I just have to turn it off

    but fundamentally I agree some real human voice in pop music is pretty essential ( some pop instrumentals are great too )
    samples just don't cut it.. nor does the over-processing, but eh.. if they fool me.. they fool me.. then it doesn't actually matter
    in those cases...

    Today's POP is totally different those days'. Today's POP is heavily censored, musically is hollow and the only free thing is nakedness. Playing with the vocals and structuring the whole song in bizarre forms don't make it honorable.:yes:

    I agree with you there is no guarantee for anything! You can be dead by tomorrow morning ! But it's not a reason for not trying to achieve your goals! Achieving your goals and making yourself better is already a "success ", it's very important to stay focus on what is your goal and why you are trying to achive it? If you are able to do that you don't need a "guarantee". Here in my country we say (If you do not look where you are going you will go where you are looking at)

    When I saw this thread title first thought was that is created by @foster911 :)
    As I'm getting old I'm annoyed with so many different things, not by just this one :) But it's such a life, many people in the world are famous and have success just because of someones else background.

    I have a theory about top sellers female pop singers.

    I haven't tested it scientifically yet but here's the basics:

    1) The success of a top seller female singer is directly proportional to:
    1.a) Length of her legs (Beyonce, Rihanna)
    1.b) Amplitude of the vibration of her ass while dancing (Shakira, Ricky Martin oops). Frequency and phase currently under study

    2) An inversely proportional to:
    2.a) Size of their clothes

    I'll soon publish a paper about this complex study.

    That’s complete nonsense, auto tune won’t make you successful. You are a old hating muppet man... this is so cliche wow...

    Auto tune is great as long as it’s used nicely
    And if used properly I even dare to state that for urban music I PREFER IT OVER just a natural voice!

    Writing in all caps also what a joke :suicide:
