I can't agree with the idea that Rap is a form of art. For what is worth, it is an expression of black culture, or lack thereof, hitting the wall of western capitalism. Nevertheless, as all perversions and valueless expressions, it has been promoted as an actual music genre. But here we are, witnessing how Smule dismantles the illusion in front of our eyes with a simple app.
With AutoRap you record some of your speech or any other sound for that matter, and then you let the app graft it onto an existing song. The recording is then modified in such a way as to resemble rapping. The songs, however, are only those which you find inside the app. You cannot use local songs, unfortunately.
Continuing on a sad note, you only have access to two songs. The access the rest you will need to purchase a paid subscription or install some other apps in exchange for coupons.
The audio results are not bad. I tested the app. Not on me, but I recorded Paul Joseph Watson ranting about soy boys, and it turned out somewhat professional. This can be taken as a compliment to Smule, but in actuality, I think it merely proves my initial point.
For those who fall in love with this little gimmick, know that you can share your "creations" and even provoke friends to do a "rap battle." I haven't tried that since I'm not one to make such a suggestion to a friend.
- Records and modulates sound automatically
- Online song collection
- Invite friends to rap-battle you
- Subscription-based access to library
There's not much to say. You can definitely have some fun with AutoRap, and AutoRap proves me right.
