NEW YORK, Nov. 8, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, the innovative minds that brought Guitar Hero to more than 50 million people introduce Singtrix™, an all-new music party experience that completely revolutionizes singing as we know it. Using the most advanced, natural-sounding vocal effects, Singtrix can make anyone sound like a pro. Bad singers sound good, good singers sound great and great singers sound amazing. Singtrix is the next generation of karaoke technology that will have you and your friends singing like your favorite stars.
The Singtrix bundle includes the Singtrix "Studio" vocal effects unit, custom microphone, professional mic stand and 2.1 Stereo Speaker System, and is available for purchase today at Singtrix.com.
"Fans still yearn for the excitement that once filled living rooms with music games like Guitar Hero. Everyone was having parties and experiencing music together in a new way," said Charles Huang, co-creator of Guitar Hero and Singtrix partner. "We are carrying on that legacy with Singtrix."
"Singing is universal and offers the greatest opportunity for innovation. Singtrix is a new and transformative experience for all music lovers; it makes regular people sound great," said John Devecka CEO of Singtrix.
Singtrix creator John Devecka is an early music game pioneer who, together with former band mate and business partner Eric Berkowitz, introduced the first coin-operated musical performance game, Drumscape, in 1996. Drumscape's patents and underlying technology would eventually find their way into "Guitar Hero." Together with Guitar Hero's founders, Kai and Charles Huang, the Singtrix team plan to bring the next culture-changing musical experience to the world.
Studio-Quality Effects at the Turn of a Dial
The plug-and-play Singtrix Studio is powered by professional vocal effects processing from TC-Helicon, the leader in live studio-quality vocal effects. Singtrix offers more than 300 retro and modern vocal effects presets covering every generation and genre of music, including everyone's favorite singing anthems.
You Are Your Own "Live Back-up Singers"
In addition to dozens of professional effects like reverb, flanger, delay, doubling, hard tune and more, the Singtrix Live Harmony effects provide up to four additional harmony voices and can be used to make a chorus or bridge of your favorite songs sound larger than life. The "Hit" effect button located on the microphone conveniently controls this and other effects. Now one singer can instantly sound like their favorite vocal supergroup or a choir of voices.
Professional-Quality Pitch Correction and Enhancement
Using state-of-the-art technology, Singtrix makes a user's voice sound better and stronger without sounding un-natural. The Singtrix Studio offers three skill levels with progressive pitch correction: Enhanced, Semi-Pro and Pro.
Total Freedom with Any Music Source, Any Device
The Singtrix Studio is compatible with audio devices with a 3.5mm audio connector. Singers can simply plug in a smartphone, tablet, MP3 player or computer and choose songs from their own music libraries, karaoke apps or stream karaoke videos from sites like YouTube™.
