Do You Know How to Use a Karaoke Microphone?

Feb 27, 2008
Have you ever wondered just what karaoke microphones do? I can tell you a few things about them. They alter the original voice into a much more melodic, musical voice. As with most technological breakthroughs in history, karaoke was invented in Asia (specifically Japan). The creator's name is Mistushti Karaoke and his breakthrough came about in the year 1978. In Japanese, Karaoke is a term or a method that means to imitate other people.

As we know today, it was instantly a huge hit and continues to be popular today. The system is mainly used in Japan's music industry, but is also a popular form of recreation. Thanks to the advanced karaoke microphone system, even somebody with an average voice is able to put his or her voices in the place of the world's greatest vocal artists. Any common guy can sing like Elvis and any young girl can feel like Britney Spears.

Modern music industry professionals are greatly benefiting as karaoke technology gets used to record new songs. Composers and singers may be at distant locations or may not be able to meet at a studio due to tours or other scheduling conflicts. In these cases, music is composed and recorded separately on compact discs, cassette recorders, or analog machines and the singers fill in the gaps.

Many universities now offer special courses in learning these arts and it is undoubtedly a rewarding career. A wide variety of karaoke machines with different designs are available. Karaoke machines are manufactured by many companies and are easily available in the market. Some resemble DVD players with the microphones built in.

They are available at various price ranges. The largest and best known karaoke brands are RJ Tech, VocoPro, Magic Sing, and LeadSinger. Each model and its features define the price and there is a price bracket for anybody who researches the possibilities. In the lower price range, the VocoPro wired karaoke microphone goes for around $25. Before the invention of karaoke microphones, the quality of songs produced were considered good, but now the quality has become much better.

Wireless karaoke microphones cost much more than wired ones and typically sell for around $75 but can exceed $300, depending on which features and capabilities appear with your model. Karaoke microphones were specially designed to suit the needs of such people. Karaoke lovers not only were interested in singing, but also in recording it. Karaoke microphones make this possible since they produce high quality recordings, as they are capable of picking up wide audio frequencies.
Karaoke software programs are also available in abundance. Karaoke lovers can build their own libraries of favorite songs to sing along to.

When cassettes were used for recordings, only a few songs could be recorded. With the advent of computers, CDs and DVDs, hundreds of songs can be recorded to a single disc. Karaoke songs can be downloaded online or copied using CD-writers. The internet is by far the best place to shop since it offers the widest market.
