Setup: Setting Music & Mic Mix THE MOST IMPORTANT STEP! Setting the volume mix between the microphone and music track is the MOST important step. This will ensure that Singtrix performs properly & optimally. Singtrix is a pure audio experience. Improper mix levels will cause distortion, low sounding vocals, weak mic dynamics, and overall poor quality sound & performance. The goal is to have relatively equal volumes between your microphone voice and music track. ONLY use the volume adjustment on your Music Device (PC, smart phone, tablet etc.) to set the relative music volume mix to your mic volume. DO NOT use the studio unit’s mic volume for this. NEVER attempt to raise your Music Device’s volume to achieve a louder overall performance. This will cause your vocals to be lower relative to the music & distort. To adjust overall performance volume, always use the volume controls on the speaker amplifier. This guide highlights the proper procedure in a few simple steps…. Adjust Music/Mic Mix – Use Volume on Your Music Device

Overall Performance Volume – Use Volume on Speaker Amp

Setup: Setting Music & Mic Mix STEP 1 A. After complete assembly as per the user’s manual, check that ALL cables are connected and FULLY inserted into the proper inputs and outputs. Firmly press on all connections! NOTE: Sometimes new cables are stiff and feel like they are fully inserted but are not. This is a common oversight made by many users. Improper connections will cause noise, feedback static and other performance issues (including vocal-tuning accuracy or pitch-correction problems). B. Power “ON” the Studio Console

Setup: Setting Music & Mic Mix STEP 2 NOTE: Your specific speaker system may be different than the singtrix speaker shown.

Treble

Bass

A. Power “ON” the Speaker B. Set your speaker volume while you sing through the singtrix console. This will be your overall performance volume for the mic. C. Proceed to the next step for establishing music mix…

You can use headphones or other speaker/PA systems connected to the Studio Console speaker output. When using headphones, use the Studio Console Main Volume to set headphone levels. When using external speakers with amplifiers, like the Singtrix Speaker or PA system, keep the Studio Console Main Volume at default levels and adjust your overall performance volume on the external speaker amplifier. NEVER use your music device volume to increase overall system volume.

Setup: Setting Music & Mic Mix STEP 3 A.

Computer

With your Music Device (PC, tablet or phone) connected, lower your device’s volume to approximately ↓ 30% before playing. NOTE: If you play your Music Device at 100% volume, the signal going to the speaker will be too loud, distort and result in an improper vocal mix.

B.

C.

Using YouTube™ on your device’s web browser, search “KARAOKE” plus name of any song or artist. There will be thousands of FREE YouTube karaoke tracks.

Smart Phone / Tablet

Play the karaoke track and slowly raise your Music Device ↑ volume while singing to set the desired music/vocal mix. The louder the music, the more each effect (delay, reverb, harmonies etc.) will blend with the background track. Lower music volumes will result in more prominent sounding effects.

Always adjust the music mix level from your Music Device ONLY and NOT at the Speaker or Studio. If you can’t hear your voice well, turn down the Music Device volume. Raising the Music Device volume above 70-80% can cause distortion and will make it difficult to hear your singing over the music. You can use your own music library, karaoke apps and other music sources. 95% of customers use YouTube.

Skill Level Enhanced, Semipro or Pro sets amount of pitch correction and overall effects enhancement

Headphone Volume Keep on default setting except when using with headphones

Simple Tips & Trix Always start your “trixingTM” sessions with easy songs in your natural range, to properly warm up your voice. After singing a few songs, your voice and pitch will naturally improve. • Singtrix strengthens the sound of your natural voice. Sing softly using falsetto (your higher voice) to reach higher notes without straining. • Your singing technique and note accuracy will greatly improve by just “singing” with Singtrix. Singtrix will naturally help make you a better singer! • For best system performance & accurate pitch correction, ALWAYS use high-fidelity music with a quality audio device and quality audio cables.

Yes, Singtrix has A LOT of effects presets! Get familiar with “core universal fx” 1-15 first. They are most versatile and will work with most songs. You will find favorites” based on the unique tone and range of your voice, and the types of songs you prefer to sing. • Start by singing your favorite song with preset “1) BIG TRIO” • Press the MY VOICE button and test the “enhanced”, “semipro”, and “pro” skill levels. • For the most pitch correction possible, try “14) TUNED TRIO” or other fx presets named “tuned _____”.

Simple Tips & Trix Preset effects are dynamic and will sound & feel differently in the context of different songs. Try “remixing” a favorite song using different preset & song combinations (e.g. “TUNED DUO” with a Classic Rock song). • Enhanced song-styled presets with hard tuneTM and big delays or reverbs will be easiest to use. • Song-styled presets will sound great when used for songs in different genres. • If using a PC or home theater system, disable all audio enhancements (like surround sound). Use a standard stereo output signal, not a digitally enhanced signal in your device’s audio settings. • If pitch correction is too dominant for a song, use the MY VOICE button and switch to semi-pro level, or use the preset bank 30-37 named “semipro” (e.g. SEMIPRO TRIO). • Don’t forget to print extra copies of the preset list for partiesdownload from our Support Page at singtrix.com.

As you improve and become more comfortable singing your favorite songs, challenge yourself by using each preset’s semi-pro and pro skill levels. • Slightly increasing the mic volume level, allows for softer singing while maintaining good • dynamics & tone control - make sure to sing further from the mic. • One preset such as “1) BIG TRIO” can be used for a an entire session. As you find cool presets, save them to your 110 favorites (hold the MIC VOLUME button down for 5 seconds) and also mark other favorites in the preset effects book.
