Can we SynthV people be at the forefront of this? Now’s the time!
In music, “tuning” almost always refers to the intonation of an instrument. Making it “in tune”. ie Tuning the guitar or violin strings.
In digital music, “tuning” refers to the same, but with more emphasis on post-production. ie using Autotune or Melodyne to “tune” the vocal track after it’s been recorded.
So to see people talk about “tuning” their SynthV/UTAU…it’s just confusing and honestly, inaccurate. It took me a few minutes wondering…“Why the heck would the new SynthV have an autotune feature?” before realizing what was going on.
I’d suggest “editing” or “tweaking”.
