Justin Bieber has confessed record producers use vocal-tuning software to adjust his singing.

The Baby singer is adamant he refuses to use AutoTune - the popular audio processor utilised by other stars including Britney Spears.

But he told Q magazine recording studio engineers correct the pitch of his singing with Melodyne software.

"I don't use Auto-Tune," he says.

"They tune my vocals - they use Melodyne. But every artist uses Melodyne. Not every artist, but 99 per cent of artists. I like the sound, the perfectness of tuning in the record.

"No one has completely perfect pitch."
