* Music/GeorgeStrait's recording of Rodney Crowell's "Stars on the Water". Strait has used it or other forms of pitch-correction on other albums, most egregiously on his final live album, ''The Cowboy Rides Away: Live from AT&T Stadium''.

* Music/GeorgeStrait's recording of Rodney Crowell's "Stars on the Water".Water" makes heavy use of it. He also uses it to a lesser extent on "It Just Comes Natural" (most apparent on the line "tumbleweeds roll", as he clearly misses a note and not even the Auto-Tune covers it up). Strait has used it or other forms of pitch-correction on other albums, most egregiously on his final live album, ''The Cowboy Rides Away: Live from AT&T Stadium''.

* ''VideoGame/SonicGenerations'' features auto-tune in the second verse of [[SonicAdventure2 City Escape's]] Act 1 BGM. Justified as it's paying tribute to and trying to match the pitch of the [[Sonic3andKnuckles Endless Mine]] melody.

* Other than Music/KanyeWest, a few rappers have used this as a one-time thing (either to try something different or an attempt to get on the pop charts), examples being "Lollipop" by LilWayne (which had West on the remix) and "Sexual Eruption" by SnoopDogg ([[OddFriendship the remix of which featured]] {{Robyn}}).

* JAY-SUN D'RU-lo!Jason Derulo frequently begins his songs by [[SingerNameDrop bellowing his name]] with heavy Auto-Tune.

* WebVideo/ToddInTheShadows discusses Auto-Tune in his review of T-Pain's "5 O'Clock". Unlike most music critics, he doesn't mind it, calling it "a tool to be used well or used badly, just like anything else." He also Auto-Tunes the next two sentences of the review just for fun. At the end of the review, he makes his own verse about how the song would play out in real life, also done by him singing with Auto-Tune.

* Also PlayedForLaughs on a sketch on SaturdayNightLive with host Kristin Wiig; an infomercial advertising a CD for socialites and by socialites entitled "Classy Sexy Elegnace" ([[TyopOnTheCover yeah, that's what it's called]]). Everything on that album is [[StylisticSuck haphazardly produced]], by their HUSBANDS, no less, (Except for one song in which [[ItMakesSenseinContext her husband Craig T. Nelson]] hires a black producer who "pretends to like her music..."), which results in HEAVY use of the Auto-Tune. The real payoff moment comes near the end, when all three women are singing one song using EACH OF THEIR RESPECTIVE AUTO-TUNE SETTINGS (in different keys and modes). The result is hilariously [[SensoryAbuse scary]]. Hell, EVEN THE ENDING ANNOUNCEMENT is auto-tuned!

Added DiffLines:
* MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic: Used in the episode "The Mane Attraction". Coloratura (who is actually quite talented) has a manager that cultivates an "image" for her that involves AutoTune (produced via magic). Subverted near the end of the episode, where she fires the manager and performs 2 songs as herself without the AutoTune (showing her actual talents, to the delight of the audience).
