TC-Helicon announces Sing Sports for Apple iOS devices 22/12/11
TC-Helicon has announced Sing Sports, which they describe as their novel answer to singing based games on Apple iOS devices. Played like a TV game show, 2 to 10 singing contestants are guided through a multi-round competition by a colourful announcer. Each round, a randomly selected Sing Master sings any phrase they wish. The other contestants do their best to copy that phrase to win.
The game play is simple, tapping 'next' moves players through the announcements, or 'pardon?' for a replay instruction. The iOS device gets passed around to each contestant indicated by their personally recorded contestant name.
Senior Software Engineer and conceiver of Sing Sports, Stephen Evans, says, "We spend all of our time designing products that let singers sound their best. Like many people, as the holidays approach we look forward to time with family and friends. We honestly asked ourselves 'what could we bring home to our families over the holidays that would make us laugh and have fun.' Sing Sports was our answer."
Sing Sports uses advanced vocal technology to analyze and score the contestants' singing - the same technology found in TC-Helicon's range of voice processors used by professional musicians around the world. The scoring is family-friendly. Future updates are planned to include higher levels of difficulty.
Sing Sports is compatible with iPod Touch 4th Gen or newer, iPhone 3GS, 4, 4s or newer, and iPad 1, iPad 2 or newer. The minimum iOS requirement is v4.3 or better. No headphones or external microphones are required. Pricing and Availability:
