I looked up Florence Foster Jenkins. So for the benefit of all of the rest of you who have never heard of her but dont want to admit it; here's the link ...

I'm nicking that.

Thanks for that LOM, very interesting! This bit, "(she)dismissed the laughter which often came from the audience during her performances as coming from her rivals consumed by "professional jealousy'" reminds me strongly of a certain person .......

The MF-401 can be used to treat your vocals to be off-key in a variety of ways.

Presets include:

•Drunk as a Sailor

•Seattle sensitive alternative warble

•Where did all the green room beer go?

•Original Star Trek cast member attempts to make pop music

•My vocal monitor is blown, so Soundman, please mix me REALLY low

•Mrs. Miller

•Too punk rock to turn down your !#$%&*!! stage volume

•Cat in an alley under a full moon

•Tone Def

•Florence Foster Jenkins

Each preset can be adjusted to taste or lack thereof with the Warble rate, Deviation range, Emotive Overload, and Caterwaul rotary controls, allowing a virtually infinite variety and depth of vocal expression and variation.

It's time to take back the airwaves. Too long have our ears been fooled by processed, homogenized, artificially-in-tune vocals. It's time to bring back the REAL sound of performers' voices with Moog's MF-401 Auto De-Tune!

Does it cause or create the above effects cos I think Taylor Swift has been using one on her live perfomances recently. :wink:

No, I reckon TS is naturally gifted in her unique ability to totally ruin a melody unaided !!
