A luddite defends pitch correction

Here’s the thing: I’ve got this great electric chord organ down in the basement, and with the right arrangement it sounds awesome on recordings. Except for the fact that it’s about a 1/4 tone sharp from A440.  So… what’s a poor boy to do?  Tonight I was recording multiple layers of electric guitar into this kind of wall of sound thing, and decided that the organ was just the thing. Except that it isn’t if I just use it “as is” – so, the only real solution is to use a pitch shifting tool on the track after its recorded.

This works great, except for the one main drawback: I have to record the track in all its out-of-tune awfulness… but if I can grit my teeth and power through, true beauty can be created. Through the Wonders of Technology.
