Type: Learn to Sing Software (Windows 2000/ME/XP Required)
Item: Singing Coach Unlimited
US $32.39 – $99.95
GB £37.13 – £59.99
At a Glance: This software package is designed to help you to learn how sing in tune and stay in the right pitch. During lessons, the real-time Pitch Tracking Line traces the actual pitch sung and gives the singer visual feedback on the accuracy of each note. The lessons are mainly for beginners, so advanced and professional singers will find this package of little practical use.
High Notes: The Singing Coach software assesses your personal vocal range and then displays songs and exercises appropriate to your range that won’t strain your voice. The “compose mode” also allows you to create and follow your own songs and vocal exercises.
Off Pitch: Many reviewers found the cartoon animations annoying/childish and some users were disappointed with the limited selection of in-built songs— definitely not to everyone’s taste. The microphone headset (included) is flimsy; breakages seem to be a problem. A significant number of reviewers also reported installation and running problems.
More: “As it stands, Singing Coach Unlimited is a brave but ultimately flawed exercise that fails to realise that singing is supposed to be fun. Singing Coach, for the most part, isn’t”
