Smule blog: Exciting Changes to the Way You Sing and Create in Smule

Not True at all - On the android, at least my android, there is no distinction. I sang an original last night.

Instead of being able to choose filters and audio effects separately, they have them combined together into these horrible presets.

You can only choose their horrible preset combos as they are.

For example, you cannot choose "Petra" video filter and ANY OTHER audio effect other than what it combined it with - Super Studio.

Proof is in the pudding.

If they don't fix it I'll dump Smule, as the only reason I loved it was because I had control over those settings.

If anyone has a magic button that says otherwise, please, please inform me.

I don’t like the new Smule. It’s ok if they want to introduce new video effects but I can’t understand why have to be linked to one audio filter. But, ok, at least allow to set this filter in the old way: super studio 10/20 for example. Not 0.4, 0.5...

The problem is that every person use a different microphone and sometimes you need to use a different filter to make the recording homogeneous. Ok I will change my mic to sound similar to the other person but it’s a mess. At least came beck to the old numbers in the filter settings. The new way is really annoying.

Agreed. Sure, give people easy settings...and then give advanced users the advanced options. Its not really rocket science. 

Really though, Smule is not that advanced...its almost an insult to think that someone won't comprehend how to click a button and see how it changes on screen. In today's society?

I think the issue is...money. That's usually the issue anyway with these sort of things. Think they'll eventually sort it out. :)

We grew up with a catch-phrase: “When you’re on a good thing, stick to it.”

SMULE had a good thing, HAD. They should have stuck to it.

Bring back the previous version, PLEASE!

Is fun to create templates for certain productions, but is not something you want to use over and over, plus all this effects are for those who always record videos, no point for only voice recording. 

For groupsongs is almost impossible now to adjust your volume or setting to blend with others ( remember some have stronger and lauder voice that need to be taken down). Backing voices effects? Forget it! No way to do it anymore. Give us back our old settings and leave the style studio only as an option to use when we want to add fancy effects. ( Same as we had before when we choose to add or not Petra, Rio, etc).

I’m not against adding some fun to our recordings but don’t make it mandatory, give us the option of using it or not.

Upcoming Changes

We recognize how important having full control of audio effects is to some members of our community. As a result, we will be adding an option for anyone, including joiners, to override the audio effects defined in a Style. For example, if a song opener creates a performance with a Style that uses “Polish” as the audio effect, you as the joiner, will be able to change “Polish” to a different audio effect, like “Grunge.”

well, thats a great start! thanks Minty!

I did like the option of different color filters within each video preset, but I guess thats certainly secondary to being able to control the sound. It is after all....a vocal product! :)

well, we should let smule know. this website is just a place where we're complaining about it  :)

Don’t worry - I have let them know. Whether they will do anything about it is another question.

I don’t like the changes as someone with difficulties it was a lot easier how it use to be , you just picked the style stars,bubbles black and white etc now it’s really complicated

Has the Grunge setting been removed completely (I can't find it, anyway) and if so, is there anything like-for-like or similar?
