Does anyone know of any good bands with an autotune effect on the vocals?

If you don't know what I'm talking about, a good example is this:

Breathe Carolina

loads of bands who use singing use autotune when recording. You can make it out on BFMV's new album if you listen close enough. It's obviously so that the vocalos stay operfectly in key and the little imperfections are brushed out on a computer.
Fender Jim Root Signature Telecaster
Martin Westside Custom Edition
Peavey 6505
Peavey XXX Cab
ISP Decimator Prorack G
Sennheiser EW172 G3
Sennheiser wireless IEM

Yeah, I know that they do, but I'm looking for a profound (obvious) sounding one, as in the band I listed.

And thanks Waldorf.

Yeah I figured you meant bands that overly use it like that one you listed. I think it's pretty cool.
I saw At All Cost live and they used it quite a bit and it sounded pretty awesome live. The song Death To Distraction has it alot especially after halfway through.

ive never heard of such musical blasphemy... they "tune" their vocals... why doesnt the band just get a good singer.. this ranks up there with lip-syncing in my book, i give those bands no respect.

How does one pick it out?
Like, what do you listen for?

I've got the new BMFV album, so I've got something to try it out.

Do tell, what are the tell-tale signs?

These bands overuse it but it's to make a certain sound.
However almost all mainstream bands and singers use autotune on their vocals. It sucks but it's true. One of my friends dad was a professional drummer and he went on tour with Brookes and Dun and he said one of them can't sing for anything but they just fix it in the studio.

It will be really obvious at the start or ends of words, because while a human voice normally takes a split second to arrive right at the pitch it needs to be at, it will be there instantly. If you want an example of unintentionally obvious autotune, here's a local band from where I'm from that released some song demos online, and they used autotune on the vocals, but not in a good way.

You can really hear it during the part where they move up and down on the one vocal part on Act I: To Begin Again...

The Evermore Escape

chROniCmiKe,

Yeah, a lot of bands use a touch of autotune as a way of getting out of singing well, but I've worked with trying to use autotune in an over-the-top way before, and you actually have to be much more accurate with the pitch, because it will sound really bad and be very unforgiving if you aren't dead on.

Then what's it's purpose? =|

Also, can anyone point out a BMFV or a popular song that has an audible example?
As well as, more defining features.

If you listen to the first thing I posted (Breathe Carolina), you'll see, because it gives it a very distinct (and in my opinion, cool) sound.

Ghost_bass, there's a couple ways of doing it. There's a program out there called Autotune (search google for it, it'll come up) that can either do believable or the over-the-top type pitch correction that I've explained. If you have a Mac, it's also built into GarageBand.
