Basically, I'm trying to make something like this:

I have AutoTalent on Audacity but what should I adjust the settings to to get an effect like this where it sounds like someone's singing when they're just talking?

If this effect can't be gotten on AutoTalent, then what's the easiest/best way to get the effect through Ubuntu 9.10? Googling didn't seem to do me much good.

Hello MetroidJunkie2008, autotalent cannot do this. You might want to try VocProc: http://hyperglitch.com/dev/VocProc/
VocProc package for Karmic: https://launchpad.net/%7Ephilip5/+archive/extra/+sourcepub/950775/+listing-archive-extra (Thanks to philip5!)

Thanks. I got VocProc working, what settings do you recommend for the T-Pain style?

I'm assuming VocProc is a vocoder? The T-Pain style is over-the-top Auto Tune, which gives a similar but distinct effect. Sounds like AutoTalent (haha) is made for that. Experiment!

Whatever style Obama was singing in the video? Is it possible to map the pitch to an mp3 file?

Yes, think so. But then you'll need to run two instances of VocProc because it's a mono app.
@robeast, VocProc is a vocoder and autotuner in one. AutoTalent is only an autotuner, but it doesn't do that over-the-top autotuning, the sound just gets too garbled.

Whatever style Obama was singing in the video?"This video contains content from Jimmy Kimmel Live, who has blocked it in your country on copyright grounds."
And I'm too lazy to check any other vids. And what has Obama got to do with this?

I uploaded an mp3 rip. Basically, it makes it sound like Obama's singing to the song. What's the best way to take somebody talking and make it sound like they're singing to an mp3 instrumental?

Easiest way? Buy an expensive autotune plugin and don't use Linux.

Thanks, got the idea. You can achieve this with a combination of Autotalent and VocProc I think. First run the talking through AutoTalent to create that typical autotune glitch at the end of words and phrases and then run it through VocProc (in vocoder mode) with a well chosen synth sound. Or run the talking through those apps in a parallel manner and mix them.

Personally I think there's nothing wrong with autotuning as an effect. But if you can't sing, like Flavor Flav (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AbfgYFig2Fw) for example, don't use it.
