What if I told you that you didn't need half a bottle of Jack Daniels down your throat to make you
think you sound like a popstar at karaoke? What if I told you all the chart-bothering singers were actually using special digital effects to sound note-perfect?
Revelations! Singtrix is turning the tide in the favour of ratted karaoke stars. Developed by the same team that created the original Guitar Hero games, Singtrix comes with three levels of auto-tune to prop up your warbling voice with, as well as 300 retro and modern vocal effects. Reverb, delay -- there's even a four-part harmony button for doing a Boyz II Men impression solo.
So, how much does it cost to sound like a hip-hop star? £299, with the bundle containing the vocal effects kit, a device-specific microphone and stand, and a 40-watt stereo speaker system. It's also compatible with the Singtrix Karaoke app for iOS, Android and Kindle tablets, which has a library of 13,000 songs to sing. [Singtrix]
