Those wolves are on very thin ice. Very thin ice.

Sounded way too much like Enigma's Sadness for me to last more than 10 seconds.

I was just going to say 'has Enigma released a new CD?' but furtive beat me to it. But seriously - this slaughter of natural noise must be stopped. Don't click the link; don't give them any ideas about how popular this could become - next it's the beauty of whalesound, mutated into a Cher single. Think of your ears.

The kitteh is on my lap right now so I will have to wait on this one.

don't worry, it won't scare the kitten... doesn't even sound like wolves....

my dog disapproved, she said that a wolf's howl is just fine without someone fucking with it like this!

meh- I was excited until I heard it. I'm generally a fan of auto tuning, but this does not enhance the original- it does nothing for the natural lonely beauty of the wolves howls.

I kind of like autotuned animals. These cats are my favourites—the squirming orange kitten melody gets lodged in my head for days at a time whenever I listen to it. These wolves are less catchy but awesome nonetheless.

What else can we autotune? The wails of the anguished? Boiling lobsters? Car crashes? Bumfights? I know! How about we pump air into the various orifices of a corpse and autotune the result?
Seriously, lets run through all the possibilities so we can be done with this already.

Coming up - the industrial remix - autotuned power drills.

Man, y'all are going to wind up resurrecting Jingle Cats and then everybody is going to be sorry.

Autotune is the kudzu of the music world.


And I can't wait for it to engulf everything.

OK I played it and my cat was more critical of the cheesy synth beats than anything else.

I can think of one difference between these things and wolves.

There's already talk of a quadruple bill with Steppenwolf, Guitar Wolf and Los Lobos.

Beardman - these might be the mice try that with. Skip to around the 4:15 mark for best results.

I liked it, because once you put enough AutoTune on something, it just ends up sounding like a crazy synth line, and i like crazy synth lines just fine.
posted by infinitywaltz at 9:53 PM on May 22, 2010


Would have been better with slower tracking. The fast tracking just makes it sound generic.

That's a reaction that I would not have expected. I had assumed that the exercise was intended as an indictment of autotuning as a generally-lamented tool used in 'popular music' to make singers lacking actual talent sound somewhat more musical.

Not really a necessary one, but amusing nonetheless.
