iPhone App - Designed for iPhone, compatible with iPad

At this point in pop culture history if you are not familiar with the pop phenomenon T-Pain, then you have been living under a rock for the last half decade or so.  The funny part is that many wouldn't consider his music stylings anywhere near musical.  Heavy utilization of auto tune turned transformed a man from a background vocalist to a headliner.  Just imagine what would happen if you had that kind of technology in the palm of your hand.

Streamlining the auto tuning process dramatically, the new app Songify is aiming to turn even your most tone deaf friends into the next pop superstar.  To use this kind of technology in the past you had to be familiar with how an auto tune application worked and had to at least be able to trick the device into playing the pitches that you were looking for.  In other words, you used to have to possess some form of musical vision to create audio entertainment.

Those days are long in the past now, thanks to Songify, because now all you need are vocal chords and the software does all the rest.  For example, check out this random dating personal ad from YouTube that has been ran through the application.  The results are both hilarious and astounding.

Wow, apparently not only is this lady lonely, but she REALLY LOVES cats.  I never would have seen that coming...

But back to the application at hand.  Available for absolutely free, you can go to work turning all of your friend's audio snippets into a musical work of art.  All you need to do is input audio and Songify will do all of the heavy lifting to turn you into an internet superstar like the lovely lady in the video above.  Don't you want to be famous too?

I Am T-Pain (auto)Tuned For iPhone 4

+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad

Smule, developers of exciting and sometimes unusual music apps for iPhone, has updated the popular I Am T-Pain app for iPhone 4. The 1.5 update is free to all users and takes advantage of the video services available to developers in iOS4 and the new front-facing camera on the iPhone 4.

If you’ve not tried the app before, I Am T-Pain is a novel tool that alters a user's voice using the popular Auto-Tune effect found in modern pop music. The new version now allows you to capture video on the front-facing camera as you sing into your iPhone to a backing track chosen from a number of T-Pain’s own songs.

Once recorded, songs and video can be shared to the web to sit alongside the over 29 million recordings by I Am T-Pain users so far.

If you fancy sound at least a little bit like the current chart toppers, the app works with the iPhone 4 and iPhone 3GS and is available for a very reasonable $0.99
