Video: NOVA scienceNOW on Auto-Tune



PBS' NOVA program recently featured a segment on the much over-used (and evidently dead, according to Jay-Z) bit of computer software known as Auto-Tune. Thanks to the miracle of YouTube, you can find out all the science behind the whys and wherefores of how this miracle bit of coding has allowed the likes of Kanye and T-Pain to reach new heights of music sales.

NPR has done two stories on the software, as well--one this past November, and another in 2004. Public broadcasting is bigger than hip-hop, evidently.
