There is nothing quite like singing karaoke and feeling like a star. The singing karaoke microphone has been an integral part of the singing experience for years, and it’s time to pick one up for yourself! This article will discuss why you should get a singing karaoke microphone and how to choose the best microphone that fits your needs.
What is a Karaoke Microphone and how does it work
A Karaoke microphone combines the function of a dynamic microphone and a loudspeaker. It is typically used in karaoke machines because it has an incredibly simple design which doesn’t feature any fragile parts such as transistors.
A conventional microphone will work for someone who wants to simply sing their favorite tunes or chat with friends over Skype, but if they want to sing along to karaoke tracks, then the larger power must be handled by a more suitable interface.
Tips for using your Karaoke microphone to sing like a pro
- Sing with your diaphragm, so that the microphone is pointed down to pick up the vibrations. This way, you can avoid sounding tinny or nasal.
- When performing in a group, it often helps to match your singing volume with your fellow singers rather than just sing louder or softer yourself-otherwise one singer’s voice will overpower the rest of the song even if every note is sung at the exact same level of intensity as everyone else.
- Be careful not to over-emphasize punctuated moments in songs which are slightly less intense vocally- this make it sound like you’re shouting lyrics across a stadium parking lot due to an echo effect on stage microphones.
