The most immediately useful functionality for many will be Neptune's ability to work as an Antares Auto-Tune-style pitch adjuster. This will save Record users from having to use third party audio editors and plug-ins to fix vocal takes, and will also allow for the creation of extreme, T-Pain-style Auto-Tune effects.

Neptune can also works as a more basic transposer, for pitch-shifting tracks up or down a set number of semi-tones. Finally, the synth will also work as a voice synth for creating new harmonies for your vocals via MIDI input, or to change the melody of the original part.
