Are you in a noisy environment? Wind, running machines like dish washers or someone speaking can make it impossible to detect your singing. Please make sure to use Sing-O-Meter in a quite environment.
When you press the record button the app waits until some loud signal (like your singing voice) is detected. When ”recording..." is active, you start to sing and there is nothing happening on the screen please check the following:
- is a headphone connected that blocks the microphone
- is the mic not working?
When the app shows activity when "recording..." before you start singing there is probably some other noise detected. Please make sure to use Sing-O-Meter in a quiet environment and don't speak while recording ;-)
When Sing-O-Meter shows red detections you should try to sing higher OR lower to reach the correct note. Don't hesitate to try again until you get it right. Sometimes it's necessary to sing much higher and lower. You will learn to control the pitch of your voice on the way. In a few days you'll notice that it's already much easier to sing the tone you heard from the app. If it's difficult for you be patient and take it as your first learning ... no need to get everything right on day 1
More info on how to learn singing will follow soon ...
Make sure you turn up the volume of your device and that it isn't muted (iPhone/iPad: silent mode has to be off -> activate Ring Mode)
