Marc....

If you look again at my quote that you used, I said that my ears can "usually" hear the difference. I would never claim that I can detect auto-tune in EVERY song, every time that it has ever been used.
As I stated earlier, Auto-Tune was originally intended to be used in a careful (subtle is a better word) manner. My primary gripe is that Auto-Tune is abused and it sounds very obvious to this of us who DO have the ability to hear and detect it, usually IMMEDIATELY!!!
A melodic rock example of this is the new Def Leppard song called "Kings of the World". After the big vocal chorus-intro, Joe Elliot starts singing the the first verse. Listen to that clip (as posted here in the Forum) from :47 to :50 and as Joe sings "I played to win", you will hear that computer-y sound as his voice climbs up a few notes and then back down on the word "win". Now, in the case of this song, perhaps that sound (as I am hearing it) was truly intended to sound that way. Regardless, I wanted to use THAT as an example of what I hear in a LOT of songs of this current era....and is what I detest!
I would much rather hear some imperfections within the notes of music, and keep the human element true and intact. In relation to this topic, I also dislike computer-esque style drums. I prefer drums that "breathe".
