Smule has introduced a new feature called “Smule styles” or “templates”. It’s a combination of audio and video effects specific to certain songs. So instead of using the generic filters like Paris, Rio, Oslo and so on, you can create a solo or collab that has the feel of a music video for that specific song. Here are two examples:
There is a new banner in the app which highlights open calls using these filters and you can also search for the tag #SmuleStyles. Here are a few songs which currently have templates, when you pick the OC from the official Smule songbook:
- Sorry not sorry by Demi Lovato
- Into the Unknown from Disney’s Frozen 2
- Take on Me by A-Ha
- Kings & Queens by Ava Max
- With a little help from my Friends by The Beatles
Of course you can also open songs yourself using these filters. If you open a song from the official songbook that has a template, you will see a preview on the splash screen and a button to turn the template on or off (see image below). With a template activated, the usual settings for audio and video filters are turned off.
