The Singing Machine SMD-572 lets you review your singing as it has a Karaoke Vision-Color video camera that records every single moment of your singing session. However, you will need a VCR to record the practice session and play it back. It comes with auto voice control and digital key control, and what’s more you can sing duets as there are 2 microphone jacks included. The built-in amplifier and tower speaker give optimum output, and you can playback or record sessions using the USB/SD/MMC card slots provided for MP3. You don’t need to carry your music notes on paper as the 7–inch LCD screen built-in monitor lets you refer to the lyrics on screen itself. You also have built-in equalizer with Bass medium and treble level controls. The top is removable, and the main unit can be detached to convert the pedestal into a handy table-top unit. You can record your performances on USB or even MMC/SD card in the easy to play MP3 format and share them instantly with your family or friends by shooting them across via e-mail or posting online.
The Singing Machine SMD-572 is not like any other small karaoke machine that just lets you sing along. It comes with dual microphones that let you sing duets. The most important feature is probably the various playback formats like CD/DVD/CDG/CR-R/CD-RW/DVDRW/DVDR/MP3/JPEG that let you review your performance constantly with ease. It comes with a CDG sampler and a video camera that lets you play back your recordings by connecting to a VCR. The 7-inch LCD screen lets you read the lyrics as you sing along without having to fumble with hard copy notes.
The unit has a removable top and the main unit can be detached, making carrying it around very easy. The Singing Machine SMD-572 weighs just 21 pounds, making it all the more convenient as it is portable. However, if it is required for professional purposes and not for home practice sessions, the unit can be installed at the desired place and used. This is not a great choice for kids and cannot be lugged around by them on their own. The unit is best left in one place where it needs to be used.
