On February 27th, Post Malone will be performing at a Pokémon Day concert which will take place at 7pm EST (midnight on February 28 in the UK).
Fans have been wanting to know if Post Malone uses autotune during live performances and on his tracks. Read on to find out.
Does Post Malone use autotune?
According to Antares Tech, yes, Post Malone does use Auto-Tune.
One of the people running his autotune on the Beerbongs & Bentleys tour was Willie Linton. Antares Tech said:
“Post Malone needs his Auto-Tune in the hands of a pro; and Linton is, without question, a true pro.”
“Anyone can sing a song, right? But not everyone makes you believe it. Sometimes, we’ll have this really cool vibrato, or maybe the singer tries to hit a note and it comes out more like a scream—I’d choose that over a take that’s perfectly in tune any day. So, why not use Auto-Tune to actually get that thing in check so you have that emotion? it’s all part of trying to create a believable performance.”
