Record Mockingbird By Carly Simon & James Taylor
You're about to record your karaoke version of the song "Mockingbird" by Carly Simon & James Taylor. Before you start though, we thought we'd give you a few tips that will hopefully help you with your recording.
- Get Flash Player
First of all, make sure that you have Adobe Flash Player installed. (If you have recorded already or listened to others, you do.) If you cannot see anything come up on the screen when you try to record, listen, or run the SingSnap Setup Wizard, we recommend that you follow the instructions on Adobe's Install Flash Player in 5 Easy Steps page.
- Run Setup Wizard
If you haven't already done so, run the SingSnap Setup Wizard and, if asked, click "Allow" to give Flash access to your microphone and webcam. (You don't need to activate your webcam, but the recorder will not work without allowing this).
- Set Sound Card Settings
Make sure your sound card is set to "Microphone" or "Line In". Do not use "Stereo Mix" or "What U Hear" since that will result in a double backing of music if using the "Enable Music" option on the mixer and you won't be able to adjust vocal volume or sync your vocals more closely to the music. See Setup Guides for Sound and Mic Settings for more information.
- Close Tabs & Programs
For best results, close all extra browser tabs and unnecessary programs running on your computer. This helps your computer to clear up enough working memory to provide an uninterrupted recording and listening experience.
