I'm all shook up!

The Improved Recorder Has Arrived!

Everyone loves SingSnap for a different reason. There are message board games, community interaction and of course making friends! However, there is one thing that unites us all and that is our love for singing, recording and sharing our music.

Introducing the Improved Recorder! SingSnap has been working on developing improvements on the recorder to enhance the user experience and is now releasing it to everyone! This is an extremely exciting time for SingSnap and we hope you'll enjoy the results!

We have a Beta Testers group that is comprised of over 600 members who have been diligently trying, testing and reporting for a few months now and we would like to take this opportunity to give them a big THANK-YOU! Please pat yourselves on the back as your assistance and dedication to this endeavor is invaluable and we sincerely thank-you for all the time invested to make this recorder as fabulous as it is!

Onto The Goods!

While the recorder resembles the one you are all comfortable and familiar with, there are a few notable improvements we would like to highlight!

While Recording:

1. Adjust Lyric Speed!

Have you ever had a song that the lyrics just couldn't keep up with the pace of the song? Now you can adjust it to fit your needs!

2. Clipping Protection!

This is a very cool feature that automatically adjusts the microphone level when it gets too loud and causes a 'clipping' affect! No more snap, cracking and popping because the mic is too loud - the Improved Recorder does some of the work for you!

3. Video Display During Video Duets

If you like singing duets you will LOVE this feature. Now, while you're singing your part of the duet you can actually SEE your partner! That's right, watch what their doing and react if you like. We hope this will help in making those wonderfully creative video duets our Snappers are famous for!

While Previewing:

A. Hear MMSB Button Effects In Real Time!

You no longer have to wait until the song is saved to hear the final mix - you can listen and adjust during the preview stage!

B. New Sync System

Probably the biggest and most requested change is the brand new sync system. You have more control than ever at adjusting the timing of your recording! It's now so much easier to get your song sounding exactly how you want it!

Finished Product and Other Notes:

- Improved Final Sound Quality
- Re-mix available for 7 days
- Keyboard Shortcuts
- Flash 10.3 or higher required

We are hopeful that your recording experience will be even better! Since this is still in the testing stage, a link for the "original" recorder will appear at the top, above the lyric/video window.

Feedback and Resource Threads:

As with any new project we want your feedback! Please come by and share your thoughts - both positive and negative (but preferably constructive) as well as any bugs or difficulties you encounter.

Improved Recorder Feedback Thread

We will do our very best to keep you posted on the known bugs and our progress in finding resolution for them! Please keep an eye out for our updates!

What are you waiting for? Go Sing!

We Hope You Enjoy!

Wow! I was wondering about this just before checking this news out! Talk about being a reader of things to come! I love this idea! I am testing this out tonight! Sounds like a tremendous change for the better even though the old recorder is a trusty warrior! Off to work! Will send feedback later! Thanks for being the best and striving to top that! Love it!

There was a little pfffft (hard to describe...lol) in my vocals towards the beginning and in another spot...not sure if that was because of the MMSB button? I never used that before. Still love it though...really cool!!!!

Thanks SS!
