On March 26, 2021, a major X-STAR software update was released. Besides recent system fixing, the patch adds up several important and long-anticipated functions to the karaoke console: smart scrubbing and control over the content with explicit vocabulary. Let’s have a closer look at the novelties.
Many parents have reasonable concerns that in their absence, their children can find the songs with explicit lyrics on the catalogue. We support the parents in their determination to safeguard young singers from such content they are too young to hear, so the package of the spring updates includes several useful tools.
First, now the catalogued songs, featuring obscene content, will be labelled E (Explicit content) – undesirable content. You will instantly see that the song has obscene lyrics and should not be performed by kids. Second, such labelling will come instrumental, if you are visited by your parents or associates, who do not tolerate swear words in the modern lyrics.
Another significant detail in the X-STAR policy on control over the children’s use of karaoke consoles is the possibility to block the entire explicit content with a pin code. To enable this feature, you have to go to your Personal Account – Security – Parental control. Once you entered a pin, you can leave your children alone with a console being absolutely sure they will now sing only decent songs.
How many times have you faced the situation when, while singing, you would miss something, skip a line in the song, get distracted by some trifles, and would underperform in the end? It’s going to change now.
“Smart scrubbing” is a long-anticipated function that enables you to scrub a backtrack backwards or forward with one click. You’ve sung not as well as you meant it and would like to repeat the chorus? Let’s give it another try! You don’t want to listen to an instrumental bridge between verses? – Fast it forward! The intellectual algorithm scrubs it precisely to the moment of capture colouring.
The function will be useful not only for impatient karaokers but also for those who want to boost their singing skills. With smart scrubbing, you can reach new heights of signing by practising a complex piece over and over again until it sounds perfectly well. With X-STAR, you will learn how to sing like a star.
