I've heard of pitch correction LADSPA plugins for Linux, but nothing

with real-world recordings, it'll revolutionize the recording process

Then again, Melodyne has always been a tweakier competitor to Autotune
if I remember correctly, so maybe Antares has something like this up
their sleeve as well. Also, while Celemony claims "patent pending"
on their polyphonic pitch correction, these guys seem to have done it
first and might have prior art -- I don't know if they've published
their software or if they're maybe even related to Celemony:
So if someone comes up with some kind of free software that slices a
recording up into frequency bands and then does pitch correction
individually on each band (I assume that's roughly how this works,
but I'm sure someone reading this has a better idea), it might not be
a given that Celemony would be able to (successfully) sue.
