“I vow right here, right now, to never use Auto-Tune again. I’m onto something that I think is bigger and better called ‘The T-Pain Effect.'”

Those are the words from one T-Pain in a statement to AHH today, effectively ending what was arguably the most successful relationship with man and machine since your girlfriend and her vibrator. Although knowing Pain, he’s got another deal in the works with some vocal mechanism as he’s teamed with audio company Izotope to “directly evolve his sound”.

T-Pain and Izotope will showoff the new technology on June 7th during E3, at the NOX booth. The burial leaves us to question merely one thing – what is the greatest T-Pain song with autotune? My money rides on “Buy You A Drink”.
