When and how has a particular sound eased an important transition, personally or historically?

Dear Readers:  So we’ve had two excellent posts on Autotune that have stirred up no small degree of controversy: Osvaldo Oyola’s “In Defense of Autotune” (9.12.11–our most popular post to date!) and Owen Marshall’s “A Brief History of Autotune” (4.21.2014). And now, we want to know how y’all feel and think about this most controversial of technological effects–with or without some of that T-Pain Effect.  —J. Stoever-Ackerman, Editor-in-Chief

What’s your take on Autotune and what are we really talking about when we talk about it?
