POLL: Is post editing after recording a cover cheating?

While talking to a lot of my friends I realized they make a lot of mistakes while recording a cover. Of course, they don’t always do another take, but rather decide to fix it in post production.

While some of you might consider this cheating, a lot of people actually spend more time repairing their mistakes rather than recording the whole song all over again. That makes us wonder – are some of YouTube musicians actually playing on their videos, or is it just a track they fixed or recorded separately from the video? Is it fair to the musician who actually learns the whole song and plays it live without a single mistake?

We are not so sure ourselves. That’s why we’re asking you guys to help us out.
