iKaraoke.jpeg

Griffin iKaraoke

(NZ $109.95) Compatible with all iPods and Nanos, but not the iPhone

The iKaraoke isolates the lead voicetrack, fades it so that you can only hear the instrumental. So then you can sing along hearing only your voice. It can connect to any Speaker system and is able to mute the music tracks so that you can use it as a PA system. There is also free downloadable software that will allow you to create karaoke videos. I am investigating cheap speaker options with both battery and power.

How can you use this with children?

The lead vocalists in your musical can practise their songs with the music anywhere in the school (how about the middle of the field :-))
