Not a lot of people can hear the slightly synthesized nature of their voices, but for some reason, I've always been able to tell. I dated a music major in college and the school got a brand new auto-tune synthesizer that she thought was amazing. Couldn't really tell, she said... I said I could so she put together 20 different samples and I correctly identified all of them as either natural or auto-tuned.

What burns my chops even more is when the vocal track isn't 100% auto-tuned and just certain notes are to achieve the tone they are looking for... Yes, I am talking about Nickelback here. One of their more popular songs has a few high notes and a few lower notes auto-tune and only those notes. Can't. Stand. Listening. To. It.
