Auto tune for out of tune bass in recording...

Postby drumandstage » Sat May 12, 2018 7:57 pm

In the Bee Gees song Stayin' Alive, the bass guitar is flat. Not too noticeable in and of itself, but when you are playing a properly tuned bass to it, it makes is hard to be certain you are playing correctly.

Is it possible to auto-tune the bass (even if it makes the rest of the parts in the song sharp)?

Hi,

Do you have the bass on a separate track?

No. I am actually referring to the original Bee Gees recording. The bass is actually out of tune on it, and causing me problems playing along.

Put the original track on Mixcraft, double click it and look for the Pitch Adjustment buttons.

I've separated the frequencies for you (though it's not a precise separation). Download, retune, mix to taste

The whole thing was likely sped up a little in order to sharpen the sound, which was a fairly common practice before digital recording. It may be easier to take the whole Bee Gees track down a little until it matches the pitch of your well-tuned bass guitar.
