    As one who has done a tremendous amount of "vocal tweaking" (and drum replacement), this is not too far off the mark.

    I was never good enough to do it on the fly, though. :eek:

    I think that's what makes it hilarious. I have seen this, many times in real life. There was one time recently that I was doing a fairly high profile gig, and it was requested of me to speak to the soundperson and tell them we needed lots and lots of effects. I was told by the producer to be honest and let the guy know she's not that great, and we're going to need help. I did. He said no problem, and actually did a pretty awesome job. While we were playing however, I noticed him calling people over and letting them listen in his headset. And they were all cracking up laughing. It was a bit unprofessional on their part, but I don't think it was obvious to anyone other than me an the guitarist.

  19. Hah! I'm friends with some producers and have heard some "spectacular" untreated vocal takes. Always good for the soul!
