Taking a break from SS ...for family medical emergency.. I will be back ... but don't know when.

It there a way for other SS members who don't upload songs to the songbook to see what new songs others have made available... without searching in the new songs added to SS library? I listened to a few people from this thread who have and wow.. it's just great...

** * Rest In Peace, Dansolman & COVID-19 victims ** 2,703 songs uploaded ** Tested mic cables

While I am grateful for all of these song additions, it occurred to me that some of these songs are LICENSED restricted(those same ones that I have seen here before they were removed from the SingSnap library).

Sound like it s for gold only , but I m curious if we can just play our own and record without having to make files to complicated for meflatduck

Blue Members can record any songs they upload themselves

Where do you mean play your own and record without having to make files?

I know at first glace it may seem complicated, but once you get your first one under your belt, it becomes pretty simple (and a lot of fun!)Novella

Mean like we can do with the original just play guitar than you got music on with having to make files

Let's see if I understand this correctly...

1. My wife and I wrote and recorded a Christmas song. We own the copyright.

This means I can upload my backing track of our original song. Is this correct?

2. My wife and I own many karaoke CDs purchased over time. We do not own the copyright to any of the original songs, but we legally purchased the karaoke versions.

This means I can upload any and all of these karaoke tracks - even those which are licensed here in the United States. Is this correct?

3. I downloaded a karaoke track from YouTube. I do not own the copyright to the original song, and I did not purchase this track.

This means I can NOT upload this track to Singsnap. Is this correct?

You could buy a karaoke backing track from say Zoom.... since you need to have legally purchased the backing track to upload or own the copyright , after you buy ('i used paypal' ) they download straight to your computer then you can upload that track to SS using the new community songbook tool under 'account' called 'manage songbook'

Internet Explorer 11 doesn't support the needed playback method for accurate syncing. So syncing the lyrics is virtually impossible. For that reason we recommend using a different browser, like Chrome or FireFox.

The songbook feature does require you to upload the song. You could record yourself playing the song and save it on your PC then upload your track. Audacity is a great free program you could use for that.

1. Yes, that is correct.

2 & 3. SingSnap does not permit copyright infringement; nor does it provide Copyright or legal advice to it's members. Fair use and private copying laws often permit consumers to transfer their lawfully acquired sound recordings but we can't provide legal advice on each song. Any concerned rights holders can find our copyright policy here. Only the copyright holder of any specific musical work has the right to register a complaint. The law is such that there is no ability for a third party to register a copyright complaint.

As a blue member you can record with any song you yourself upload. Gold members can record with all uploaded songs.

Great idea, have to check out what all you talented people have made
got one suggestion though, I do think you should make a Delete button available, as I read a post where someone had tried it out and said they had messed it up but couldnt delete it.... so I think a lot of people might be a little hesitant trying this ( me included LOL!!!) because there is no delete button incase of mistakes etc.....
Only suggesting of course

great addition though, seems like it is a Hit with a lot of singers here
well done and thank you for all your hard work setting this all up

Have an Awesome day everyone and Happy singing

If you want to upload a track but the track is already on SingSnap does there ring a bell ? I mean do we get a notice ...or do we have to check ourselves if it's already on SS or not ?

Should there not be some kind of button to allow us to report an uploaded song if it has not been sync'd correctly. I looked at one earlier and found it had not been done properly so you could not sing along with it. It's pointless it being there for others to keep trying it when it doesn't work.

Ah, so in order to rate it you have to save it. But then if it's not working you don't want to save it. So I had to stop the recording, save it, rate it and delete it. It would be better to rate it without having to save and delete.
