If you're unhappy with the sound VocALign is giving you, it's probably because you're expecting it to do too much or you're still using a very old version of the software. Usually, only the worst of the worst tracks have beaten this software. So before you give up in disgust, try some different settings or do a bit more editing before using VocALign. Sometimes, a little patience and extra effort really pays off.
