Auto-Tune the news - everything sounds better

Jim Leftwich says: "Musical remixing of the news by brothers Michael and Andrew Gregory. The Katie Couric part (at about 1:20, above) is pretty awesome."

Here's another episode of Auto-Tune the News.


  1. A little recognition of the talents of Sarah Fullen Gregory (pictured with Michael above) is well deserved, too.

    The entire family (three brothers + newly-married-in Sarah) is just a pile of talent.

  2. As an audiogeek I’d like to point out that it’s way more likely this was put together using “Celemony Melodyne”, than “Antares Autotune”. In the even that it WAS put together with Autotune, though, I bow down before whoever put that much time into this awesome remix.

  3. Biden in the #1 vid and Couric in the #2 vid are MIND-blowingly well done. Their style of speech adapts very well to this, and makes it quite ROFLcake.

    A lot of the others were rather so-so, but those two *well done*.

  4. yeah, the second one is way better.

    is that the one the article was meant link to with the words “Here’s another episode of …”, because that’s just #1 again.

  5. @ #5 HUBS:

    Nitpicking, but that clip (Bill Mays’ Kaboom commercial) is not autotune, that’s a vocoder.

  6. Also check out his video of Martin Luther King, Jr. singing his “I have a dream” speech.

  7. @8: I think “Autotune” has joined Hoover, Aspirin and Xerox in the purgatory of brands that have become generic nouns for all products in their category. Though I agree that it sounds much easier to do with Melodyne.

  8. The Gregory Brothers are, as #7 pointed out, just a pile of talent. Their non-auto-tuned musical performances are enough to permanently rock your socks off. Proud to have shared the stage with them…

  9. @ #8, I’m good friends and bandmates with Michael, and yes, he is using ProTools (or possibly Logic) and the autotune plugin. I know he has had Melodyne in the past but am almost positive that this is Autotune.

  10. It’s possible that no one loves these videos more than me. It’s inspires me the way that Ze Frank’s The Show used to. Hail Michael Gregory.
