    My Followers number are decreasing badly

    But, almost every day and every hours it goes down. Not only that ,I am unfollowed automatically.I have asked someone, he said it happened on its own. In smule anyone will be unfollowed and blocked by themselves.This doesn't make sense. why happened to my account?Please help me. What I have to do now ?

    My Followers number are decreasing badly

    Smule support is right. Loosing followers is perfectly normal – for various reasons. They can unfollow you or they might delete their account, in which case there simply no account anymore to be counted as follower. I wouldn’t worry about it. The specific number is meaningless. What about your Smule experience changes when it says “1000” instead of “1300”? I would argue, nothing.
  4. Hello everyone .. The number of my followers is decreasing every day over time. the original number was 1280. now it remains 981🙁.This is not fair. I have reported to smule. He said it was not a technical problem.It happened because there were singers who had deleted their accounts. But, think logically, isn’t it possible that every time someone deletes their account? I have send screen shots before and after about the number of followers. I hope the smule can stop this kind of activity and help to solve my problem. I want the original number back.Is anyone going through like me? please share .

    Invitations from people I don't follow

    Interesting. This has not happened to me in last 4 years. Only way People I do not follow can invite me is in my Messages Inbox and that too under Others Classification (others meaning people I do not follow) Is this happening in IoS meaning iPhone or Android. If it is IoS I think it might be linked to all the stuff ups we are all enduring with the mew Face Lift to the Profile Page. I just checked both my iPad and Samsung and see only invites from people I follow
  7. Samsing: I joined Smule in Aug 2017 with my Samsung 7 and got told off by people I sang with for being late always. At that Point of time I did not realise the problem was caused by my Android Mob Phone. It is after Joining this Valuable Sing Salon Forum I learnt a Lot from my Friend who calls himself Open Type and bought a 6th Gen iPad, iRig Pro I/O, an Audio Technica MTH50x head phone and a AKG Vocal D5 Dynamic Phone and have enjoyed singing since Dec 2018 So I am thinking aloud to see what your technical issue may be as iRig Pro should work well. So I am going to do a check list for you. But before you do any thing I suggest you go to my profile page _RamKrish1012 and check out the quality of Recordings ( not quality of my singings as I am an Old Frog 🙂 ) 1- Does your iRig Pro run on Batteries or does it have its own power supply. My iRig Pro I/O has its own Power supply and my iRig Pro also automatically charges my iPad and is at 100% all the time. If you are using batteries as the battery gets used up the quality of the recording drops drastically. remember the batteries are charging your iPad too when Irig Pro is plugged to the Lightning Port 2 - Assuming you are using an iRig pro with its own power supply and your dynamic mic is connected to iRig pro with an XLR Cable Make sure the 48V switch for Condenser mic is switched off as it is only for Condenser mics 3- Your Dynamic head phones must be plugged directly into the iRig Pro I/O 4- Before Plugging the iRig to lightning ports check and turn the iPad volume to zero 5- I have set the Gain on iRig Pro permanently on 8.5 as suggested by open Type 6- the only adjustment I make is the volume control on iRig pro for my head phones to suit song uploads or invites from Smule partners 7- Each invite has different Reverb Character and Reverb amount as chosen by the singer. A simple option is to set both at 50% to get a reasonable recording as this depends on the properties of the recording room. As for my I use 75% and 65% and happy with the outcome 8 - these days there are crazy number of options for Video and audio. I find Super Studio a safe bet 9 - my iPad is used just for Smule. I use my My Samsung as Mobile phone Hope you are able to see where the fault in your system lies and are able to fix it Cheers Ram

    Invitations from people I don't follow

    I haven’t heard of that problem before. Have you reported it to Smule? Should be easy to investigate if you tell them whose invites you see, despite not following them.

    Invitations from people I don't follow

    Of late I am getting several invites from people whom I don't follow. I am aware that such people can send their invites to my inbox. But these invites are landing up in my Invitations tab not in my Inbox. I am also aware that if the people are verified singers endorsed by Smule, their invites may show up below Invitation tab, but these people are not verified singers. As a result I may miss out invites from people whom I follow. Is anyone else facing this problem ?
  10. I did get caught up in this crap "likingFiasco" a while ago. There was this song uploader and his bunch of side kicks men and women. I chose his upload and recorded an invite unknowingly. Say 25 people joined and 25 group members liked it and all week there was this constant hail storm of likes from Total strangers. In the beginning not knowing what was happening I checked a few of the VIP members. So I got 625 likes and Thumbs up messages and a ton of free gifts from no where. Then the Uploader asked me to join his Group and I said why not?. Once I joined I was told what the rules of the group were. Any group member sending an invite was to receive likes for each and every join from all members. I quit the Group and unfollowed the head aches immediately. So in your case heaps of people you don't know Joined you. and you are wondering why ? The Only thing I can think of is You probably used a Song Upload that is linked to a crazy group of people. I may be wrong. Suggest you check out the Song Uploader and see if he/she has groups and see if group members sent you their likes and free gifts Cheers
  11. The final volume depends on two factors: the input gain (set on the iRig) and the volume set in Smule. You would usually raise the gain so far that your loudest notes don’t cause distortion (“clipping”). You don’t want your gain too high or too low. It will have a significant influence on the sound—not just the volume. I have my iRig Pro I/O on 8.5, but that will depend on the microphone and how it is used. Setting the volume on the review screen in Smule will only affect the final “mix” of the audio channels. So you can pick whatever volume feels right and you can do that after the recording. It doesn’t matter what volume is set during the recording.
  12. It’s what certain groups do. They share their songs among the group members and everyone likes and comments every performance, independent from whether it’s actually any good. It’s a ridiculous concept to give the impression that the songs are better than they really are and because of that, possibly reach more people. Not only is it a dishonest tactic, I can’t even see that it does any good. You only annoy the people who unwillingly get caught up in this game and they might block you and even delete these performances.
  13. Hi, Thank you for taking time to write long response. Appreciate your help. I think you were right with reverb settings in Smule. While recording with Shure & Irig Pro, I reduced both reverb settings to about 10% and then echo is significantly reduced. Is there any recommended settings for these 2 parameters. Default settings from Smule is about 50%. But there is one issue still remaining is low volume of recording. I kept the gain in Irig Pro to 5 and increased it to 6 but that did not help with volume of recording. It still sounds low. Please hear this recording.. https://www.smule.com/sing-recording/2410220209_4155392455 . Is there any way, I can fix this ? My Smule mic volume was about 56%... Thx again for your help. regards,

  15. FYI, you do a great job on the app! 🎶
  16. That's nuts! My push notifications have been buzzing all the freakin' day! It was an actual person who opened it, but didn't really try and then a group of people blind liking. I honestly don't understand what's happening. haha
  17. Hi again! So I had a chance to listen to both recordings with headphones. You're right - the recording using just headphones does sound clearer than the recording done with the iRig. I think this may be due to different factors. The microphone built into your earphones are mainly meant for phone conversations, so it'll pick up more high and midrange frequencies, and not as much of the low frequencies of your voice. Because low frequencies can muddy up the sound, not having as much of them will leave you with a sound that cuts through the mix better. To my ear, though I can hear it better, it sounds a tiny bit tinny. I actually prefer the sound of the recording done with the iRig. Because the Shure SM58 has a much wider frequency response, it'll reproduce a bit more of the low end along with the middle and high ends, so to me, it sounds a bit more warm and round. May I ask how far you were from the Shure while you were singing? The SM58 is really meant to be used closer up, so I think if you are standing a foot (about .3 meters) or more away from the mic, the sound quality will diminish. It does sound like the vocal is disappearing a bit into the track, so maybe move closer, or up the volume of your voice while reviewing your recording. As far as settings, even if you have the reverb set the same between both, because of the way the microphones differ, you will still need to adjust accordingly. For example, the reverb sounded more prominent in the iRig recording, which could have affected its clarity. I think it might help to turn down the reverb in that case. This may be causing the extra echo you talked about originally. You also mentioned background noise - but I didn't really notice any in the iRig recording. This might be helped by perhaps singing closer to the SM58 and turning the gain down a bit. More gain = more opportunity for background noise. Especially since Smule applies effects like compression, etc. Sorry for the long message, but I hope this helps! Remember - a whole bunch of expensive gear doesn't necessarily get you better results. Some of the best recordings I've heard have been done with someone just using their headphones. I think you have a fantastic voice - I say find a sound you like and run with it! 😄 Best of luck to you!
  18. Ha I’ve actually asked Smule for this feature, because few things annoy me more than having my notifications blown up by nonsense. But as far as I know, it’s not possible to turn off the notifications for an individual recording.
  19. Hey guys! So, someone mumbled over one of my opens and now it's been getting tons of blind likes. Normally I wouldn't care, but it's lighting up my notifications like nuts. Is there anything I can do to mute the feedback on a single recording without deleting it?

    Absolutely

    New profile page. WTF?

    Nope, all I see is titles under my Channel . Definitely the old setting cos I have had this for a long time.

  23. Thx for your response. Yes, I have recording samples.. Both songs were recorded using Smule. Smule setting is the same for both songs.. My apology that the songs are Indian but listen to my recorded voice for both songs. Please use headphone so that you can hear the difference between the two recordings. 1. Using Irig Pro : Shure dynamic SM58 mic connected to ipad and headphone connected to Irig Pro headphone jack. The gain dial is between 4-5 but closer to 5. The LED indicator was green while recording. https://www.smule.com/sing-recording/2410220209_4146478236 2. Not using Irigi Pro. Using headphone connected to the ipad headphones jack and singing into the mic of headphone.. Look at the clarity of the recording especially with respect to my voice.. https://www.smule.com/sing-recording/2410220209_4129144095 Hope this will give you some clue.. Thx.
  24. Hm... do you have a sample recording for reference? Also - as a quick and fairly crude method to test, you could start a Smule recording with all your gear plugged in. Tap on your dynamic mic and also on your internal mic to see which one picks up. At least that way you can see where the sound is coming from, then go on to troubleshoot why you're getting all the external noise.

    New profile page. WTF?

    @Asbco, if you see like this on your profile page, it is the newest version. It shows faces/photos instead of the titles. To me, after a long working day facing a lot of faces already, I only want to see titles when searching for my fav recording, not faces or any photos.

    How do I feel ? Like a Jack Ass after listening to the Braying of the other Donkey

    Removing followers on Smule

    Exactly what I do! It works for me! I don’t know how some of the users have the time to open so many invites. Once I opened 20 invites - max I have ever opened - and it took me four hours … 🥺 Never again! I can’t imagine the time it takes for the users who open 100, yes I’ve seen it… It’s an app or hobby, not a job… And as much as I love to go LIVE on occasion, it’s a time eater, too. Causes dark circles and bags under the eyes if not done in moderation 😂 Smule is truly an addiction for some, and I think the company knows it, reason they’re not too concerned when customers say they’re leaving. They know they will be right back! Don’t you, Smule? 👀👍🏼 Social media in general is a legit addiction.

    I'm the same way. I sometimes will not follow back someone I genuinely like because they open tons of songs a day and my notifications will end up being over saturated with one person. I'll end up missing stuff from other people. What I'll do is check their page every so often when I'm in the mood to sing with them.
  29. I am new to the forum, need your help. I am an karaoke enthusiast and use smule app to record music. My setup is as follows.. I am using ipad Air 2 connected to its ligtning port using Irig pro I/O, other end of Irig Pro I/O is connected to Shure 58 dynamic mic. I use headphone jack of Irig Pro to listen to track and my voice while recording. My recording has some sort echo and some background noises which i suspect is happening because default mic of ipad is still active. How do I solve this problem and make the recording quality better. Thx. Note : If I use headphone connected to Ipad headphone jack, and record with headphone mic then recording is very clear and sound quality is much better. I thought of using Shure mic to make recording quality even better so bought Irig Pro I/O and Shure mic but results are very disappointing. Appreciate your help as I am really struggling with this problem for some time now and spent quite a lot of time. Hope you guys can help...
