Shocktober week 3: r/b1a4b8199

I tried a duet last night with the new recorder & just had problems mixing it, I couldn't really understand about the - & + buttons,

so I deleted the duet & went back to the old recorder.

I hope the old recorder will still be there for us that can't fully understand the new recorder yet.STRESSARELLA

so does anyone know if the old recorder will be an option for us to keep or will we eventually have to use the new recorder?

for some reason this was over looked.

Terrorists targeting Canadian soldiers on Canadian soil.....God Bless our country.

I've been using the recorder for quite some time now & like it very much, I don't do many duets but as for the mixing & playback sound right away it's great. I was hoping it was soon going to be available to all....it's GREAT !!

At some point we will discontinue the original recorder, but it won't be for a little while still. Once we get the last few bugs workout the improved recorder should work far better than the original.

Iffypresley, there is a preview. After you are done recording, click the arrow that says, "Review your recording." Then a spinning wheel comes up that says, "Preparing preview." Shortly, then a preview should come up where you can adjust what you need to like in the original recorder/player.

If your spinning wheel keeps spinning and doesn't go on to the preview shortly, this has been a known issue. Go to this thread.

http://www.singsnap.com/karaoke/forum/topic/b11dbe0

I'm putting the link there in case you want to flag that thread.

Here's what I wanted you to see from that thread....

11/1/2011: The "Preparing Preview" appears, but The Mixer never appears.

Resolution: Click "I like it, let's proceed to saving it" to possibly save your recording. If it was salvageable, you can remix the recording to adjust the volume, etc.

Hope that helps.

I have to say, I'm confused by this. When you click "Review your Recording" what happens?

I have not been able to adjust the voice/musice. I tried to increase my voice level, but found it didn't matter where I moved the button, there was no change. I even tried to go back and remix the song to no avail. I'm giving up for today. I have tried both the old and new for a total of ten times. I'll try again tomorrow.

Can you PM me a link to the recording so I can try to make sure its not a server problem?

Do you have Flash 10.3 or higher? That is required for the advanced functions in the mixer.

Been a rough patch for me! Had to deal w/ deep depression while fixing my puter. Feeling better now!

Novella, I recorded with the new recorder tonight and there is something different about the sound. The only way to explain it is that it seems like it's cutting the reverb off before it finishes it's natural decay. I don't know if they made changes to MMSB or what, but there is something definitely different about the sound. I guess that you guys are beta testing it with us, so i hope my input helps. Think I'm going to stick with the old until that issue is cleared up.Marshall_Dillon

Hi Marshall_Dillon. You're right, the MMSB is a little different. It uses a better noise cutoff to get rid of the usual hiss that mose people have. It will also cut off the trailing end of reverb if it's too quiet.

I suggest you try turning up the recording level. Try this: turn it up all the way, enable "Clipping Detection" and sing full strength for about 15 seconds. It will automatically turn itself down to a safe level.

Then, you should be good to go!jason


Hey Jason, worked like a charm!!! Thanks so much!! Now I can use this all of the time and scrap the old one. Most of my songs are in perfect sync, set to zero, and it works great with duets. Thanks!!

I checked your last video and it looks like your issue is related to an Adobe Flash Player 11 bug. The only known fix at this time is to revert back to Flash Player 10.3. We have a thread about this, here is the link.

Hi there.....
I like the new recorder...but..lol.....I am finding if I don't select the MMSB Feature...then the volume is unusually low for some reason....
I sometimes use the MMSB Feature....but normally I just use it in contests where its specified that no FX are permitted...
Why does my mic volume go so low if I don't select MMSB? thanks....Blane.

I am having the same problem..I have done as suggested and the recording level peaks just under the limit but if I do not use the MMSB feature I find I need to move the mix slider to the left to around 75%.

It would be ok if there were separate sliders for voice and music, but the way it is now the more you lift the vocal, the less volume there is to the finished recording.

The record level without the MMSB button is the same as on the Original recorder. The difference with the MMSB button on is very noticeable now since you can hear the MMSB effects in the preview. If you turn your record level up all the way and make sure clipping protection is on then sing about 15-20 of the song loudly the clipping protection option should set your level at it's max without clipping. That should give you the same volume level you had in the original recorder.

I have a question. I know that during testing the beta, we didn't have too many days if we wanted to remix a song. I assumed that was just during testing.I see now it says I can remix up to a certain date and that's a short time. What was the time before the beta recorder..how long could we wait to remix then? Sometimes I'm listening to old recordings and thinking I should remix that, so then we will only have a few days to re-mix it, right?

I'll check back for an answer but not right away. Thanks!

I politely beg to differ. Singsnap is real life. For me personally it has provided the love of my life. Friends who I have met in person. Friends who I would love to meet. Friends that I will never meet. It has provided both happiness and sadness. Highs and lows. (Just as in real life you have to take the rough with the smooth) It provides for me daily enjoyment. The recorder is another advance. When it is finally perfected, for the enjoyment of Snaps members, and I think I can safely say it's friends. Once again, speaking as a sometime pain in the arse, I Applaud Snap as the best site on the net (My opinion)

It was always 7 days for the beta recorder. The remix system is highly different from the old system, using the actual files from the Preview step.

The remix tool's purpose is to provide an avenue to fix the song once you hear the final version. The new Mixer is so much more accurate that we hope people won't have a need to remix anymore! On top of that, there is a strong technical reason to limit the time to 7 days.

The only time I remix is when I need to adjust the final volume of my voice a touch. I'm working to make the preview even more accurate in that respect, but it's currently very, very close.

By clicking Like it shows up on your wall. That's their "Share" button now.

Once its on your wall on Facebook, you can click "Reshare" to spread it to more friends.

It's up to Facebook whether it shows on your friend's News Feed or not. We don't have any control over it. The more people click a link, the more people are apt to see it on their Feed, but we don't control that, Facebook does.

Hi All!

Is it me, my laptop or is it SS? It's been murder on here for the last 48 hours!
Buffers getting stuck, Sending recording that takes up to 5 minutes... (this is with the old recorder)
If I make a mistake I don't bother retrying 'coz the whole process takes up to 5 minutes to get BACK to the point where I want to restart recording. Is it my laptop? Or is it some teething problems at SS?

I'm not complaining..I'd be more bothered if it's because the kids have introduced a virus to the laptop...but I've heard that others have been commenting... experiencing this too?

Any adivice to get around it?

Now that I tested the new flash recorder hangs too in the recording process.
It worked a charm earlier. Some restarts could prove out to be most useful... on the serverside!

While clearing browser cache may give the user some advantage while clearly the system is not DOWN as people still seem to be able to record and save (according to featured page LOL) there may be some latency or other issues that affect the recorder process...

Not claiming anything just guessing. Typically the new recorder process hangs at the stage where there should be a visualization of the buffer fill. There is none.

That sounds like a problem with your connection. Being unrelated to the new recorder, I suggest you contact SingSnapSupport with this problem.

If you noticed, there is a "known issues" thread which lists this problem. It is most helpful for us if you can save the recording anyway (if possible) and send the links to us, even if they're private.

If you're not able to save the recording anyway, taking note of what recording server you had connected to could help us too.
