The Paper Jamz Pro Microphone is a brand new musical toy that hit stores this month. It's a real mic that comes with a box acting as an amplifier and tuner. The toy uses pitch detection to transform the quality of your voice as you sing, with auto mode plus five different effects: Perfect Pitch, Vibrato, Chorus, Harmony, and Melody Match. Here's what you can do in each mode:
- Auto: adjusts vocal effects to make you sound like a pro;
- Perfect Pitch: adjusts your voice so that you are automatically in tune;
- Vibrato: adds real vibrato to your voice;
- Chorus: multiplies your voice to make it sound like more than one person is singing;
- Harmony: makes a copy of your voice at a different pitch and allows you to sing in harmony with yourself;
- Melody Match: analyses and tunes your voice so you always sing a perfect melody.
My favorite feature is that I can connect the mic to the computer and transfer my favorite songs to it. The mic comes with a USB cable and the software can be downloaded for free (Windows or Mac version) from http://paperjamzpro.com/en/. The mic holds up to three songs at a time, and when I get tired of singing - or hearing - the same tunes, they can be replaced with others.
The Paper Jamz Pro Microphone retails for $29.99 - the fun it provides is priceless. The recommended age is 8+ but in my opinion, it works for anyone (yours truly included) who loves to belt out a tune. The mic comes in three styles: grey, pink (this is my daughter's favorite design) and neutral. It needs four AAA batteries - I suggest using rechargeables because the mic will be used A LOT. It is available now at Walmart stores nationwide, and later this summer will be sold at Target, too.
