When did Ringo start making his sound like a robot?  I thought it was in Y Not, but now listening to Liverpool 8, I hear some faint robotness in is voice.

What do you mean? How he abuses the heck out of the chorus effect on his vocals on Postcards From Paradise

I'm Necko.  I'm like Ringo except I wear necklaces.

I'm also ewe2 on weekends.

Most likely to post things that make you go hmm... 2015, 2016, 2017.

I think even Paul uses auto tune occasionally doesn't he?

I can't answer the original question. I haven't listened to every Ringo album.

I can't believe someone like Ringo Starr would use auto tune.

From what I've seen, Paul only uses AutoTune on his official recordings of live performances, I've never heard an example on a studio recording.

Whereas Ringo uses it on everything, even on contributions to other people's songs. a-hard-days-night-ringo-12

Times I find it hard to say / With useless words getting in my waySuprised about this one.Sad about this one

He didn't used to use it as much as he does now.  While going through my Ringo matathon this last week, I noticed that Ringo 2012, had Postcards From Paradise are pure auto tune on his vocals.

I don't know when he started doing that to his voice, but it makes his already-mediocre-songs even worse.

I think Robo Ringo begins in Y Not. I don't hear a whole lot of autotune usage in Liverpool 8.

As for the Robo Ringo voice, I quite like it on Y Not, and it's okay on Ringo 2012, but on Postcards From
Paradise
, it gets a little bit annoying at times.

I know I've said in the past that Ringo sucks at singing, but that's when comparing him to the other 3 Beatles, who are among the greatest singers of all time, I like his vocal performance on Yellow Submarine and his voice isn't so bollocks that he needs autotune. Actually, I can think of at least 10 worse singers, try to name them:

Especially that #2, just thinking about his singing voice makes me want to listen to Yellow Submarine in an infinite loop.

If you're reading this, you are looking for something to do.

Although, my guess is that his voice has taken a bit of a dive in his older(or younger, depending on if you believe in the immortal Ringo) days, similar to Paul.
