I am very happy that somebody made a song based around Carl Sagan talking and whooping. Sagan was an amazing man, and since he was also a devoted pot smoker I’m sure he would’ve dug the song’s super-chill vibe. I’m just kind of bummed that so many people, even ones who write for respected online music publications, keep referring to it as being “Auto-Tuned” when in fact it isn’t.

Not to be annoyingly pedantic—I try to keep it in check, I really do—but perhaps a lesson in some of the major methods of electronic voice alteration used in music might be in order. After the jump, some examples.
