What's up [UNKNOWN] nation?
I am Brian [UNKNOWN].
With me here is John Devaki, the CEO and founder of Singtrix and look we're here at CES like all the time.
We wanna have fun sometimes.
I found their booth I think a couple of years ago, with [UNKNOWN].
And this year you have a new machine that lets you change how your voice sounds.
But, not that I need it or anything, but I wanted you to talk about [UNKNOWN] and a little bit about what this is, and what you guys are doing.
Sure, [UNKNOWN] is the most exciting karaoke and singing experience that's ever been created-
The most exciting ever.
I really think it is, because it allows
The 95% of people who can't sing will get up and pull off their favorite song and sound good instantly.
Which is amazing.
So, how does it do some of that, this is a portable unit right?
So this is a first portable unit you guys have made.
Is that correct?
Yeah, we have a party bundle which has a mic stand and a separate speaker.
And this one is more portable.
Plug and play, so this one you can carry around easily to bring to your friend's party or whatever.
But it also has all the same effects and all the features that are in our main unit.
Okay so I'd like you to maybe demo some of these amazing effects.
What is this model actually called?
This is called the family bundle, so-
The family bundle.
So, the whole idea is, we are a company created Guitar Hero.
So the whole thing we like to do is just try to bring people and music together And even if you didn't spend years and years of practice, you can get together with your friends and have a good time and experience music together.
So what's special about Singtrix is really the studio unit here.
We used professional vocal technology that's only the pros use.
And we figured out how to adapt it to make regular people sound good.
So there's like an automatic pitch correction if you need it.
And then also, there's live vocal harmony so, one person can sound like a choir voice's studio quality, just like that by the press of a button.
I would like to see this in action.
I would like you to show us the action.
We have these people here coming like, I'm curious.
I want a karaoke at CNET.
That's the 2017.
We also have these effects called voice morphing effects which are pretty funny, too.
I'll go through a couple of fun ones.
Show me what you've got.
Ok, so here is my Tinkerbell voice.
I can make a man sound like a woman if you want to so you can sing like Let It Go or any of those famous karaoke songs.
Then you switch it over.
And then you got your bay rip baritone, you sound a little like Barry White.
So you can play Barry White track and have a good time [UNKNOWN] just like that.
Turn the dial, kicking it back and sing.
The next one.
All right, for this one is really fun.
So this one shows the power of the vocal harmony that you can do.
So it's all done live.
I'll try this one.
Yeah you plug in any music you want.
I wanna try this one.
And it's gonna do a live four part vocal harmony, so it sounds like a choir voice is from one person.
So you all you gotta do is go,
Uh-oh, come on now, you felt that one in your soul, I saw you out there.
That was amazing, [UNKNOWN] that sounded great.
That was cool, okay.
So yeah you have all these different effects, basically you can plug in any music and any device.
You can actually even plug a guitar keyboard in there.
And what it does is Polyphonic note detection, which means it figures out what key the music's in and it'll pitch correct you as much as you want.
And it also do the live vocal harmony.
Now, another big thing about Karaoke or Noraebang to my Korean friends.
Coco's out there, I see you.
We wanted to have fun.
I'm gonna get you all warm here.
I felt like I would want to jam a little bit.
Because if you karaoke, you want to be able to get your own songs into it.
So what are one of those ways that someone can just take this with them.
Where is their song library going to come from?
One of the things we really wanted to do was make it open source.
So YouTube actually has tens of thousands of free karaoke tracks on there.
All high quality so you don't have to.
The good thing about our unit, we're not trying to sell you music along with it.
You can use YouTube and it's got all the greatest tracks up there already.
You could use any karaoke app that plays music, or guitar, or keyboard.
Because don't we use YouTube for everything already?
Okay, so are you guys ready to do some karaoke?
My gosh, that is the most pathetic clap I've ever heard in my life.
One more time.
Are you ready for karaoke?
Let's hear it.
Okay now we're getting warm so shall I just like get my track jamming or what?
Okay, you guys, I'll let you all decide we play a little game like called CE yes.
For CE no?
So this is horrible, it's okay, you can tell me.
So I just get this thing going?
Yes, let's do it.
Okay, let's see where we are at.
Alright, he were go.
Who knows what this song is?
Can we say Waterfalls?
Can we say Waterfalls?
That's my backup.
Here we go.
4 3 Two, one a lonely mother's gazing out of her window.
Staring at a son that she just can't touch.
If at any time he's in a jam she'll be at his side.
But he doesn't realize he hurts her so much.
Was that autotune or was that me?
Okay that's that.
We just got warm.
Let's stop that because I'm sure someone out there wants to come up here and have a little fun.
We have a volunteer.
Who wants to karaoke?
What's your name?
Bobby Joe, ready?
One two three.
Okay, here we go.
So Bobby Joe, where are you from?
And what lovely song would you like me to queue up for you today?
I don't know, [UNKNOWN]
No, no, no, because I can't pick a song that you-
Yeah, look, people are like uh-oh, Britney, Britney.
Hit me baby.
Hit me one more time.
That's a good one.
Okay, okay, okay, hold on, give me a second.
Using the power of the Internet.
See that's what's great about [UNKNOWN] You could be at a party, everybody can actually queue up the music on their own phone.
[CROSSTALK] And then when you're ready, you just plug the phone into Karaoke version.
You know what I'm talking about.
This is, You're so Awesome.
Give a round of applause.
This is like bravery.
I love it.
And I'll actually be your karaoke stand so you can see the words and that allows you to dance and do cool things with your booty and stuff like that.
No, no, no.
We don't need it.
We love you, and we're gonna have some fun, okay?
If there's a five-second ad because of You Tube, just bear with us.
This is great.
Are you ready?
No one's watching.
Baby baby [LAUGH]
That was amazing.
Okay, okay, we have time for one more amazing performance.
Who is the third person in our audience that would love to Karaoke?
Don't be bashful.
Look at Tyra over there on the corner looking down as well.
Yes come on up young lady.
My God, is this look awesome?
Okay what is your name?
Kayla and where are you from?
Have you seen what we've been doing or you just heard people singing like what's going on?
This is what CES is all about.
Okay, Taylor, do you have a go-to song you'd like us to look up and select using the power of the Internet?
It is hard, right?
It is hard.
Let's say you're in a karaoke bar and they're like, you got one song to sing, make it count.
I'd Closer, but the chance's over.
Okay, do we have that?
Let's see here, that's sick.
Okay you can [UNKNOWN]
for me while I look this up.
Are you a good singer, do you sing?
[LAUGH] Well they really threw you up here, that's great [INAUDIBLE] Literary it pushed me up here.
So that's what good about Singtrix.
It makes bad singers sound good instantly and good singers will sound amazing.
So if you're really a good singer I should just put on the pro setting it takes all the pitch correction, we used to get the live vocal harmony and all the other effects with it, so that's great.
[INAUDIBLE] All right we're ready.
Let me cue this bad boy up.
Are you gonna sing with me?
I'll back you up with some booty dancing.
Okay, let's go here.
And look, your friends are just, like, trying to embarrass you.
Wait, first, put down the book.
Put down the book.
I was doing just fine before I met you.
I drink too much and that's an issue but I'm okay.
Hey, tell your friends it was nice to meet them.
But I hope I never see them again.
That was awesome.
You ain't ever getting older.
I got a little carried way, got a little carried away.
Do we have time for one more performance in the back?
Okay, they wanna go.
They said we'd like to go all night [LAUGH].
That's how it goes in [UNKNOWN]
Okay let's have some fun.
One more person we have this awesome think trick karaoke box.
Here at CNet you've had a long day.
Who would like to sing one last song?
Anybody, come on, I see someone pointing, come here young lady, over here!
Bring her up guys.
Challenge me, bring her up, bring her up, bring her up, bring her up, bring her, bring her up, don't make me sing here all by Enrique Iglesias.

We've got the young lady coming up.
Make some noise.
It's karaoke at CNET.
Okay young lady, what is your name?
Hey I'm Denise.
Hey Denise now it's kinda hard to think of a song you would wanna go to but do you kind of have a jam you might want to go to?
I actually don't I've never done karaoke before, ever in my life.
And the reason is cuz I never know what to sing.
And is it kind of intimidating to be in front of a live audience of people you've never met before in your life?
Absolutely, it's very scary.
I really didn't wanna come up here.
But there's gotta be a song that you kinda love and like, anything?
What's the song you like to sing in the, I'm not saying.
I don't sing in the shower.
I don't know what.
Do you know that song?
What do you listen to?
Which are some of your favorite artists?
Well, see this is bad because I'm like a deep house person.
Well what are you gonna give me?
There's not really any lyrics in [UNKNOWN] [LAUGH] so.
Something easy and fun.

We could do a group effort of hero Enrique Iglesias, do you know that song?
