Some guy on YouTube has “fixed” Van Halen and it sounds horrible

Not familiar with the concept of “time correcting”? A newbie when it comes to the world of “quantization”? Honestly, same. Luckily, YouTuber Dr Bob is on hand to bring the mysterious world of musical manipulation to the masses via his Musical Surgery channel, and this week, the ills of quantization are on the cutting table. 

Quantization is, he says, the process of fixing all the parts of a song to a fixed beat – even if that’s not how they were originally played. It’s complicated, so we’ll let him explain: “Almost every new song you’ve heard in the past 20 to 30 years has been time corrected or programmed, which means every part of the song is in perfect time and locked to the grid or metronome to non-human standards of playing.”
