If you are passionate about singing, you might have tried downloading the Smule app- that claims to be the best karaoke app. That might be true. The app is pretty good at recording and has a wide range of karaokes in it. But a major downside is- it requires you to pay money to use it. A lot of people who happily download the app find out, to their disappointment that the app lets you record only one song for free. Plus, the whole process of backing the song in your phone seems complicated. But, the fact that the Smule app gives you so many controls when you record makes it irresistible. But, you might want to rethink paying so much money for the app since there is a better app. SingPlay is an absolute bliss for people who’ve been envying Smule users. SingPlay is the best free karaoke app for Android that lets you record without charging a single penny. Let’s what’s more about the SingPlay App.
The Home Screen of The App
At first, you might get a little perplexed when you look at the home screen of this free karaoke app. Let’s deal with all the controls one by one.
Starting with how to choose the song, click on the option that is circled in red in the picture given below. When you do so, you will be taken to all the tracks in your phone. Select the track that you want to use as the karaoke.
After you select the track, you have to tap on the mic-like option to be able to record. Once you do that, you are taken to the home screen of the app where the song shows up.
If it is the original track with the singer singing, you can let the icon circled in the image given below be green. But if it is already a karaoke version, tap on it and you will see the green circle disappear. Actually, the green disk is activated to erase the voice if it is an original track. There is no need to erase the voice in a karaoke version. That is why you have to turn it off.
Tap on the red circled disk (in the picture below) that is in the bottom-center of the screen to play or pause the track. Also, scroll right or left to reach a certain part of the track.
When you click on the option that circled red in the picture given below, you will be able to write the lyrics for the song. Once done, it will be visible in the empty space at the center of the screen.
There’s another control that you will on the home screen. When you tap on it, you see two options- tempo and pitch. You can slide left or right to adjust them. Basically, the tempo means the speed of the song and pitch means the range of the song. If the original song is too high for your voice to reach, you can decrease it.
The button with “rec” written on it in the home screen is supposed to start recording. Tap on it and the recording will start after a count of three. The karaoke plays along. Once you are done, click on the “rec” button again.
There are three options you see after clicking on the record button. They are- listen, cancel, and save. If you want to listen to your recording and make adjustments, click on “listen”. If you want to cancel this recording and record a fresh one, click on “cancel”. If you directly want to save it to your phone, click on “save”.
The Controls After Recording
When you click on “listen”, the recorded song starts playing. You will notice a control bar at the bottom right of the screen. When you click on it, you get a number of options.
The first one is music volume. If you feel like the volume of the music is too much, you can reduce it. If you think the volume of your voice is too much, you can reduce “Vocal volume”. Then there’s an option called “reverb volume”. If you increase it, it will give an echo-effect to your voice. The final option is really important. It is called “music delay (sync)”. This one is used to bring a sync between your voice and the background music. Adjust a bit by scrolling left or right to find the ideal sync.
After you are done using the controls, simply tap on the arrow that is circled red in the picture below.
Now you can save the audio, or share it using the two options that are circled in the picture below.
If you feel like the audio isn’t up to mark, you can just delete it by tapping on the delete option.
Now that you know how to use this free karaoke app, you are good to record your voice with the studio effect! It might take a few days to set your hands to the app, but once you do, it becomes too easy to use. You no longer have to pay to record your own songs. All you need is- the SingPlay app which is a free karaoke app. It is a singing app that makes you sound good and feel confident. To download this free karaoke app on your Android device, click here.
