Ever since the proliferation of digital technology within the world of recording, many artists have chosen to get lazy and, often rely on pitch-tuning plugins, or think that there is a plugin for every mistake they're prone to make while recording. They're wrong. As an audio engineer, I can confidently say that, despite the wide array of tools at our disposal, it is ALWAYS a better idea to record something correctly from the get-go. Naturally, not all circumstances allow for fine-tuning during tracking, however, a project will ALWAYS become much more time-consuming and tedious, when corrections need to be made that could've been avoided during tracking. More time equals more money. Plus, any time spent correcting mistakes, and cleaning up sloppiness, is time taken away from honing in on the sound of the final product.
Over time, having tracked big name acts, with vocal coaches and vocal producers, I can attest to this fact: Every word, every note, must be completely perfect in terms of pitch, inflection, energy, and desired effect. Many times we will track a single line over and over again with multiple takes, until the line is just right. This is not to say that many artists will not repeat a verse 40 or 50 times (especially with rap) until it is flawless. The artists should be comfortable enough to play the part in their sleep, backwards, forwards, with the ability to be playful because it is so well ingrained. This takes time and PRACTICE, PRACTICE, PRACTICE.
Practicing in the studio is a waste of your money!
