For those of you not
quite familiar with Karaoke, a Karaoke
machine is a device that allows you to choose a song and
then play it back
stripped of the vocal so that you can sing along with the
song and replace the original singer's vocal with that
of your own. Better quality karaoke machines will even
provide the "applause" after your song and even "rate"
Karaoke singing, in pubs
that has many rooms with individual Karaoke machines, are
often known as KTV in Asia and are tremendously popular
family and friends entertainment outlets especially in
Japan, Taiwan and China.
Base on the same concept
of Karaoke, the Griffin
iKaraoke allows you to have the functionality
of the bigger Karaoke machine onto the tiny iPod.
iKaraoke comes with a microphone
cum processor as well as a connector that plugs into
your iPod dock connector.
Now, all you need is
to play any sound on the iPod and the Griffin
iKaraoke will mute
off the vocals of the song. Pick up the microphone and
sing into it. Wala....now you'll hear the song replaced
by your vocals! Simply connect to an amplifier or speakers
via the audio out port of the Griffin
iKaraoke....and you'll feel
exactly how it will be like in a professional KTV room!
Of course, the little Griffin
iKaraoke will not have as many functions
as the bigger and better karaoke machines in KTV but it does
allow you basic functions such as to adjust the volume and
reverb. In addition, the Griffin
iKaraoke requires no power input or batteries
and hence, feels light and compact.

singing to music at home as much and as vocally correct
