Karaoke catastrophes rejoice – the Studio from Singing Machine is the first karaoke machine that features the official Auto-Tune software for natural pitch correction, as well as extreme retune effect. Singers can also enhance their performances with fourteen Auto-Tune genres of vocal processing effects from Auto-Tune’s library (including Pop, Hip-Hop, Rock Alternative, Concert Hall, Grunge and Country). So, yes… you can absolutely do your best T-Pain whenever the mood strikes you.
The unit itself has an 8” full-range woofer and 3” tweeter that can put out tremendous full-range sound with over 150 watts of dynamic peak power output. Users can take the Studio anywhere, inside or out, because of the internal rechargeable battery that can power 25 hours of karaoke party! The Studio also supports two microphones for duets (additional microphone sold separately) and the speaker has color-changing light effects to complete the atmosphere.
Everyone knows karaoke is only as good as the videos… the Singing Machine Studio can either play full-motion, hi-def MP4 videos from the 8GB Mic Guy USB or access more than 14,000 songs on demand with the Singing Machine Mobile application, powered by Stingray, available on iOS and Android devices (a paid subscription is required to access full song catalog). Connecting the Studio to a TV though the HDMI output jack provides singers with scrolling lyrics and videos. Alternatively, attaching a mobile device directly to the Studio (which features a secure resting cradle that fits a variety of devices) uses either line-in or Bluetooth to connect and lets the whole system be portable.
For the true karaoke aficionado, the Studio has built-in software that will allow users to create their own personal effect presets and perfect their sound engineering skills.
