bpb Freeware Studio: Best Free Pitch Correction (Auto-Tune) VST/AU Plugins

This time on bpb Freeware Studio, we’re covering the best free pitch correction (Auto-Tune) plugins for Windows and Mac.

Not too many plugins to choose from in this category, but they’re pretty good tools actually, and can be used to get that Auto-Tune style effect for free.

Follow the links for screenshots & download info:

GSnap was the first freeware alternative to Auto-Tune, it’s a well-made, solid plugin with a nice set of features. Not too hard to use, but setting it up for the fist time can be a bit overwhelming. A Warbeats tutorial on using GSnap is embedded below in this article.

KeroVee is another solid free pitch correction plugin. It was recently updated with an improved pitch correction algorithm and a neat Pitch Graph.

MAutoPitch looks like a very useful plugin, although I still haven’t had the chance to properly test it. It’s fully automatable, optimized for low CPU usage, and features a nice, clean-looking user interface.

Another alternative which isn’t listed above but is wort checking out is Tom Baran’s Autotalent, available in LADSPA plugin format for Linux, Mac, and Windows. It can be used for offline pitch correction in Audacity.

So that’s all for today, have fun mixing and please don’t go all T-Pain with these freebies!

  4. If you use Linux check out Zita at1. It has a simple interface and performs well. It is stand alone but works well with the insert on DAW apps such as Ardour.

  5. When I use de GS, I record some song, and enter ont he pluging.
    It doesn’t show to me the graphic, on the side of the piano boards. I can’t raise or lower a tone there, because there no grafic/waves to move.

    I’m missing some button or option?

  6. Its a shame Reaper’s ReaTune is not included in their free bundle. Its the only non-commercial pitch correction plug-in including those listed above that includes a MANUAL mode. Manual mode is absolutely necessary if you want natural sounding pitch correction… you know… for when vocals need to be in tune. Auto modes are only good for the silly and over used T-pain effect. Unfortunately all the plugs listed above are useless for basic, invisible pitch correction.

  7. I found mAutoPitch to be incredibly good if you are after transparent correction of slight pitch variations. Very similar in operation to the automatic pitch correction that is built into Cubase. I highly recommend it.

  8. Hi, Can we open this software directly or we need to have the other audio software to open or use that?

  9. Their site says;

    Autotalent is an open-source LADSPA plugin and should in theory work on Linux, Mac or Windows if you compile it for those platforms, although Autotalent v0.2 has only been tested on 64-bit Linux. (Autotalent v0.1 had been tested on 32-bit Linux.)

    So has anyone ever compiled it for use as a VST in Windows. It looks cool. Thanks!


  10. Not everyone uses a potato to record music. I use a 64-bit system with S1 that has no internal bridge for obsolete VST technology. Kinda sucks to only be able to use 3,75 GB of my 16 GB RAM to be able to use an autotuner. If I mix a whole drumset, that in itself is about 2 GB of RAM already. Sigh. Thanks for the tips though. I may try them out for a less hefty acoustic project or something.
