How to Download and Use x42 Auto Tune for Vocal Correction
If you are looking for a free and easy way to fix the pitch of your vocals, you might want to check out x42 Auto Tune. This is a plugin that is based on the zita-at1 algorithm, which is designed to correct small errors in vocal tuning. In this article, we will show you how to download and use x42 Auto Tune for vocal correction.
What is x42 Auto Tune
x42 Auto Tune is a plugin that can be used as an LV2 plugin or a JACK application. It works by resampling and looping the input signal and applying pitch correction to the note closest in the configured scale. It does not include formant correction, so it should not be used to transpose a song or change the vocal character.
x42 Auto Tune has several parameters that you can adjust to fine-tune the pitch correction, such as tuning, bias, filter, correction, offset, and MIDI channel. You can also select different operation modes, such as manual, MIDI, or auto, depending on whether you want to use a fixed set of notes, respond to MIDI input, or combine both.

How to Use x42 Auto Tune
To use x42 Auto Tune, you need to load it as a plugin on your vocal track in your host application. You can then open the user interface of the plugin by clicking on its name or icon. You will see a keyboard on the left side that shows the notes that are enabled for pitch correction. You can click on them to toggle them on or off, or right-click to select a common scale.
On the right side, you will see the parameters that control the pitch correction. You can adjust them by clicking and dragging on the knobs, using the mouse wheel, or typing in values. Here is a brief explanation of what each parameter does:
Tuning: This sets the frequency corresponding to A pitch. The default is 440 Hz.
Bias: This adds some preference for the current note over other notes in the scale.
Filter: This sets the amount of smoothing on the pitch correction while the note does not change.
Correction: This determines how much of the estimated pitch error gets corrected.
Offset: This adds an offset in the range of +/- two semitones to the pitch correction.
MIDI channel: This selects the MIDI channel to respond to. You can choose Omni or 1..16.
MIDI Panic: This resets any hanging MIDI notes.
You can also choose between three operation modes by clicking on the buttons at the bottom:
Manual: This uses a fixed set of notes for pitch correction.
MIDI: This responds to MIDI note on/off messages for pitch correction.
Auto: This combines both manual and MIDI modes.
You can monitor the input and output signals by looking at the meters at the top. The input meter shows the original pitch of your vocal, while the output meter shows the corrected pitch. The keyboard also indicates the current note selected by the pitch estimator.
