    I'm working on a vocal comp that is supposed to be, used in a deep tech house track.
    I managed to do manual vocal tuning, time alignment but, the vibrato is still there; I did my best to reduce it using Melodyne and Autotune 7, but it doesn't sound right.
    Do you know any other solution than Melodyne or Autotune to solve this issue digitally?
    Let me know your thoughts.

    these are my thoughts. it is an ok sample. you have already done the Melodyne pitch modulation changes? I would want to know how to fix it too, but I would stick it in the track first. you could do a whole lot of work you will never even notice. is it going to be one of those reverb heavy "big room" edm type of tracks?

    I don't know how reflective the mp3 is of what you have actually in your daw, but I will just say it this way. it is really to your benefit to cut your samples as microscoped in as possible and then to zero crossings. in general.

    Isolated as it is in these files tells us really nothing about the context of the vocals in the mix. I seriously doubt that it will make a profound difference when part of the whole. Just like eq-ing an isolated instrument in solo is a waste of time and energy, don't nitpick the miniscule difference that is bothering you without the vocal heard within the entire arrangement.

    I would say that if the take is problematic the singer could redo the performance, but it sounds as if it is from a canned sample pack. Oh well.

    Celemony Capstan?
    It removes wow'n'flutter effect caused by tapes, cassettes, vinyl. Vibrato maybe something like that stuff

    Use Melodyne Capstan.
    Set the blue line to top position and leave the gray line on the bottom.
    Start with 'fast' and then search with mouse scroll to the right to find the sweet spot.
    If effect is too small, try with several passes.

    Too many singers, too little talent
    This is why they invented autotune

    I was gonna suggest Capstan too,
    In fact Capstan detecting/removing Vibratos is a Bug that turned out to be a Feature,
    and who knows, it may be more used for that than for its intended purpose.. lol

    In any case, the Vibrato on the file sounds pretty Artificial to me in itself..
    like it comes too Fast/Intensely and only in the very End of the vocalization,
    as if it was a digitally added vibrato made with the typical Midi RDD controls.. (like the ADSR but for vibrato)

    know what I mean?

    Lol. The vocal is already dead and you want it even deader. Poor vocal.
