Just wondering...

Do record companies have creative control over artists? For example, could the record company force an artist to use pitch-correction (auto-tune)?

Sorry if this is a silly question, but I've been wondering about this lately.
The only way i could imagine that happening is if the singer sounded god awful on a mixed track.
I do know some musicians don't mind. Some also use it for live shows. Sick sad world.

The way i see it happening is they'd probably mix it into autotune without your knowledge, which would probably boost your confidence or something.
Good singers don't need it

the companies just want to make money (rightfully so, I guess. that's their job), so yeah, they can probably do whatever they want when it comes to that kind of thing.
