Unboxing Women

By Unboxing Women

We are Maika and Dana from Unboxing Women and this pod is about the gender gap and how women and LGBTQ+ are marginalised in the music and entertainment industry.

It all started after we were called a bitch just for knowing what we want and being assertive about it to the men around us, so if being a knowledgeable woman makes us a bitch, then we are #SUCHABITCH and we’ll show you just what a bitch can do.

Join us as we unbox the underlying truth, discuss taboo topics and bring on guests revealing the dirty little secrets of the music business and what is really going on behind the scenes.

UW #53: What you didn't know about Autotune

Who uses Autotune? Why is it frowned upon in certain genres, while it is glorified in others?  We divulge a couple of secrets well-known in the industry, but that most music fans have no clue about.

We mention our Episode 25: "Vibrato in Pop Music", Episode 32: "Exploring Imposter Syndrome" and Episode 23: "Women Supporting Women - Vocal & Communication Coach Angela Durrant".

This is the link to the Full 2019 Eurovision Show on their official YouTube channel where Madonna sang 'Like a Prayer' with Autotune tuned to the wrong note: (the link will make the video start just before she comes on)

This is the link to the video on Madonna's YouTube channel where they corrected her performance as best they could.  You can clearly hear extra vocals were added on the parts that they couldn't re-tune due to too much audience noise:
