  • New features (and problems) in the Sing! update 6.0.1 for iOS

    Smule just released version 6.0.1 for iOS. Here is an overview of the changes. 

    New Feature: Edit Songbook Tabs

    You can now customize the tabs in the songbook section of the Sing! app to your needs. Click the microphone symbol and scroll all the way to the right until you see a plus symbol. Click it and you will see a list of categories, such as musical genres and special categories such as Recommended, Popular, Trending and Unlocked. Using the checkmark symbol you can add or remove tabs. The entries at the top are your current tabs. You can also use the button on the left to change their order.

    Redesigned Recording screen

    The settings you see while recording a song have changed. You can’t swipe anymore on the video to change the video filters. There is a new button on the bottom left to change the filter—but only for the songs you open yourself! Just as with group songs, the person opening the song now also controls the video filter for duets. The settings just show you which filter was used if you join. There is no option to change it anymore.

    The button in the middle controls the audio filters and the button on the left gives access to the volume of your microphone and the guide track. 

    Some people couldn’t find the rewind and flag button anymore after the update. In order to access it, you need to drag the control panel (see left image) down and the rewind and flag button will appear again (right image). 

    New problems

    Users have reported problems with recording video. The video frame that is visible during the recording is not the same as after the upload. So you might have your head cut off. Smule has been made aware of the issue. Currently there is probably no other solution than to aim the camera somewhat higher during recording. We will update the article once the problem was fixed.

    People have also reported that the recently added Boost option is not available anymore. 

    Update: The video frame seems to fixed in version 6.0.5. In addition, the flag/rewind buttons have been made more visible again.

    Thank you for this useful article!

    I was actually just updating the app via iPhone whilst reading this on my computer, and fussing over my slow connection since the update seemed to be taking forever...

    However, upon having read the bit about filter changes no longer being optional for joins (amongst the other issues mentioned further along in "problems") I opted to stop the update and simply stick with the old version. Thank goodness for this forum, and (sometimes) slow connections when needed! ;-)
