How to Do AutoTune in GarageBand

The GarageBand audio recording application is part of the iLife suite that comes pre-installed on every new Mac computer. The application allows you to record digital instruments through the computer's input ports and non-digital instruments using the computer's built-in microphone. If you want to record your voice with the GarageBand application and apply an "auto-tune" effect to your voice, you can do so in a few simple steps.
