    In My Opinion Most Smule Members "LOOk UP TO" Members they Follow and don't bother about people who Follow them Followers are mostly a floating population (say 80%) and very few people care about who follows them. At least I never bother Unfortunately people we follow may be oblivious to us and may not know us. I follow max 100 members and keep pruning it down. If each member I follow sends one invite a night. In a week there will be 700 invites. One has to be lucky to find time to record 5 duets a night. I might book mark 70 out of 700 and sing about 25 or 50 max a week. I am glad Smule now has a feature that allows us to invite 25 members we follow at a time. We could not do that before. So invites only went to followers mostly. Today I am able to send my invites to all 100 I follow and am happy if one or two friends find the time to join As for followers joining ones invites. It is a nightmare for all popular female singers. One Lady was consistently getting 250 to 300 joins for each and every invite of hers as she has about 9000 followers and she is a Professional Doctor and totally stressed out as a front line worker during Covid in the US. Her way to de-stress was to come home and sing away. On one Occassion there was a man abusing her for not commenting on his join. He said if you do not have the decency to comment then do not send invites. I stepped in and told him to get lost or he will be banned. This is a huge problem in India with men trying to bully and demanding female members join their invites etc. Very Complex Issue with no easy solutions and even if we have solutions Smule cannot be bothered. Say I have 500 followers. I don' t want to invite all the followers as many of then are worse than donkeys when it comes to singing. "I would like an option of handpicking my fav followers and invite just them." "Better still is send invites only to my Followers whom I follow" I suggested it to Smule zen desk and received a comment that it is a great idea but nothing happened Right now popular singers are doing a copy and paste of a thank you message for every joiner sending the same comments without listening, This defeats the whole purpose of singing on Smule. And God I go to bed after midnight every night and when I wake up in the morning there are a few hundred notifications. I am not interested is some dude hitting a like button. I am not interested in a 100 Thank you for Joining generic Notifications for every song I joined. In this deluge of notifications most of us often miss very important joins upsetting family and friends who assume you are ignoring them. This happened to one of my nieces and she refuses to join any of my invites as she believes I purposely ignored her Join. She will not accept the fact that I am not looking at Smule notifications 24/7

    Mobile Phone Interface for Recording on Smule App

    Sure thing. I'll take pics later today, but a good mic is really anything that requires power. It's called a condenser mic. They range from $30 to $3000 and honestly there's little difference when it comes to Smule, mainly because of the inherent limitations of the medium. A pre-amp is what they call the system that powers the microphone. The reason I suggest this combination, rather than an interface only for your phone is you can also use this for traditional recording, plus it's less expensive. Everything else is just cheap cables you can buy for under $10. A lot of people like to show off gear on the app for status, but it's overkill.
  4. I think if they polled paying customers only, they'd find a bunch of things they don't want to develop. lol I know why they made the changes to live, but restricting it to VIP only would have fixed the problem, no? Why waste the bandwidth VIPs pay for on people who don't support the system? To this day, they still haven't given Android users the ability to create styles or skip around songs. Plus, if I wanted to switch to iPhone, I don't get the keep my current account. 🤷‍♂️

    Sorry to go off topic but one of your statements in your comment triggered a thought to me. Too many users complain they have soooo many joins and can’t possibly listen to all of them. You stated the simple solution: Close the OCs! The only other reason I can figure a user would keep them open knowing he or she cannot listen are the numbers — look at me! 🤩 I could be wrong, though… 😁

    Beware! Gift Scammers

    Greetings I don’t know if anyone from Smule reads this blog but it would be in their best interest. There are times I am generous, and I buy a bundle of gifts. I enjoy giving at times. However, I do not appreciate users who purposely sing with me and I give them a gift (not a freebie), and the user deletes the join. Not right! My suggestion to the developers at Smule: If the join disappears, the purchased gift disappears! I think that should solve the problem. Thank you

    Bad Audio Recording

    Hello LouELVIS, Thans for that response and sharing an image. I understand the technicalities . its been a along time I posted that. But I got it worked around. if I want to open a solo, its fine, but joining I have to stay with integrity of other singers, because they use built in effects. I know you have to live with it.....Thanks . Pls look at my set up

    A bad recording depends on the equipment that you are using you do not say what equipment you are using I use an LG V60 for my recordings it has a 32-bit DAK built in and I go through an iRig mic pre which delivers exceptional sound and recording but remember no matter what gear you use all internet recordings are at 48 khz. Hope this helps
  18. Good afternoon, hello sir, I am facing this problem since 1 month. I am not able to sing any song of my choice. This is because of If I sing any song from any invite, after completing singing, If I heard only the invitee's voice. My voice is totally blank. I tried several times. but of no use. Please give me a solution for this. So that I can sing my favorite songs regularly. Regards RUDRESH

    Boss you know what you are talking about but I am just a Boof head like Shrek 🙂 : what is a Good Mic ? what is a Good Amp ? What is a Good adapter ? What three way splitter ? Can you give details and share a pic of your set up please if you don't mind. Cheers
  20. I’ve had some weird stuff, but thankfully, nothing that weird. It’s true that you may receive a generic response, we will forward your idea to the appropriate team or whatnot. But when Smule hears the same idea or complaint enough times, they are willing to make changes or reverse changes they’ve made to the app. Although I understand and believe what you’re saying, I feel that long time Smule users have led Smule in the wrong direction, for example, forcing unpopular changes to the Live Jam feature. It seems like that is when people started mass exiting Smule. So I can’t blame Smule for not wanting to listen to us on every issue. But I wish they would hehe.

    Get a good mic & a preamp. Slap an adapter on the cord exiting the preamp and feed it into a three way splitter. Fit the other two open female ends of the splitter with a cord that will merge them into one stereo female input for headphones. Plug the splitter into your device and your headphones into the cord you just set up. Boom. That's the best sound and also your least expensive solution.

    Vocal Audio issues on Android (bluestacks) after saving

    I believe the issue is with some of the vocal effects when you join an iOS OC. Sometimes my vocals sound excellent, and other times they're super compressed if I mix it too close to the music track. My guess is the algorithm is confusing the vocals with the music and trying to compress it. What I notice most of the time is those same effects will also pan the vocals in post so they don't blend quite right. Do you notice that the compressed vocals usually happen when joining the same few users? How do your own opens sound?
  23. I'm SO glad you've never experienced that. A friend just got one a few days ago! I haven't sent the feedback to Smule directly, mainly because they've never responded to anything I've sent in the past. Just the fact that this is the primary fourm for people to discuss things says a lot. There seems to be a core ideological difference in what they want the app to be, compared to what we want the app to be. The shame is that they really stumbled on something that's unique and don't seem to recognize the potential.

    Actually, if you click the link to edit the song... way at the bottom is a button to close it. I get the sense that whomever designed the workflow of the app doesn't actually use it.

    It's downright nutty. They push all their silly preteen gimmicks on us and sit on their hands when they do something we'd love to know about. It's like cooking someone dinner and then relying on them to discover it long after it's gone cold. 👨‍🍳😂
  26. If you haven’t sent these suggestions to Smule support, it’s worth a try. They do take user feedback into account, at least to some degree. I am reaching maximum annoyance over the invites from Smule-run accounts, verified singers, Smule partner artists, etc. because it seems those make up the majority of invites I receive, and I have zero interest in joining them. And I know we’re not alone in this. We should be able to opt out. And on a side note, surprise dong joins? I’ve never …

    That is a really good question! It seems I usually learn about new features and how to use them from Sing Salon or singing friends on Smule. I sometimes delete and reinstall the app, and I did get a pop up upon signing in to inform me of this change. But otherwise, Smule is relying on word of mouth. For long time smule users, it may be worth the effort of adjusting to the ever-changing Smule experience. But for new and casual users, I think Smule could do a better job communicating how to use the app.
