Perfect for Family Bonding
“Are you sure?” I asked my hubby as he was setting up the system he brought home to surprise me and the kids. “This small round thing is a KARAOKE system?”
In no time, I was waving a microphone in my hand and singing to my favourite JJ Lin and Ed Sheeran tunes together with my kids. Complete with original tracks, music videos and disco lights. I was sold.
My family loves to sing. In fact we sing a lot, particularly in the car. Occasionally, we meet friends at Karaoke lounges to sing our favorite tunes together.
Recently we discovered Popsical Remix. A nifty little device that comes with a pair of microphones that is set to take the Karaoke world by storm (if it hasn’t already!). After using it for a couple of months and subscribing to it, we can safely say that it really brings Karaoke to a whole new level, right in the comfort of our homes (or anywhere with WIFI)!
Popsical Remix is currently the most advanced karaoke streaming device in the industry. Lighter than 1kg and easy to bring to all of our parties. Karaoke is never closer- just one HDMI cable away. Here’s why we love the Popsical Remix and think we probably won’t be visiting any Karaoke lounge soon! In fact, we hear that some popular Karaoke lounges (e.g. Teo Heng) are using Popsical!
Not Your Usual Karaoke System
What is Popsical Remix?
Popsical Remix is a compact cloud-based Karaoke system comprising of 2 wireless microphones that are linked wirelessly to the Popsical Remix unit – the little round black ‘donut’ as what my kids would call it.
With 200,000 + songs (yes 200,000 +!) stored on their cloud, and accessed via WiFi, the Popsical REMIX allows subscribers to sing all their fav tunes to their hearts content with their favorite people, anywhere in the world, as long as there is WIFI.
Why our family loves the Popsical Remix
- Sing from the comfort of anywhere!
Yes, as long as there’s WIFI, the potential of Popsical Remix can be unleashed for all to enjoy at your desired venue. Be it the comfort of your home, a chalet or even your office, you no longer need to fret over booking of Karaoke lounges, or meddling with unfamiliar Karaoke systems or be weary of time limitations.
- Huge collection of songs
Yes 200,000 songs and growing daily. We are very impressed with the fact that Popsical Remix updates their song collection promptly, they have songs in a multiple of languages, 14 in fact, including Malay/ Indonesian, Hokkien or even Japanese and Korean. Imagine, singing Hokkien songs with the grandparents, cool!
- You’re totally in control!
One of the challenges in singing at a Karaoke lounge is that we have to manipulate the song selection system and their audio system etc… With Popsical Remix, these are totally out the window. WE are absolutely in control! From accessing the songs to the use of the microphones and sound settings, the singer is in total control.
To maximize your singing pleasure, Popsical Remix is equipped with vocal optimization to allow us to sing like a professional and vocal modulation effects so we inject some fun into our karaoke party with animated effects such as chipmunk and more.
Songs are quickly accessed via the Popsical App on our mobile phones or smart devices or through the TV screen. Songs can be grouped either in the traditional way of the Singer’s Names and Song Names. It can also be grouped by Languages (and there’s a lot!) and Genres of music. All these plus the full suite of vocal and pitch adjustment controls, playlists creation and track requests are intuitively accessed at our finger tips through the Popsical App.
- Current and self-updating songlist
This is amazing. Newly popular hit tunes are available on Popsical Remix within a month after release.
The daughter was happily singing and dancing to her favorite BTS tunes while my hubby and I were singing tunes from the 80s and 90s. We were surprised that they even had Buddy’s favorite ‘Baby Shark’! Popsical Remix makes it easy and fun to bond with our kids!
- High quality and original MTVs
Not only does Popsical Remix have the latest songlist, the music videos are mostly original ones, yes Popsical users get the real deal complete with the actual instrumentation (not some cheesy covers!). The vocal parts can be turned ON or OFF, directly on the original music videos itself. Super!
- Small and portable
The Popsical Remix comes with 2 microphones and a remix unit that is virtually weightless, as well as one remote control. This lightweight, portable Karaoke machine makes it so easy to bring from home to anywhere!
Unlike its predecessor, the Popsical Remix does not come with its own sound bar. Which is a good thing. The Popsical Remix can be linked via a 3.5mm Audio Cable to any of your existing external speakers.
- Value for money
With the purchase of the Popsical Remix system, it allows users 15 minutes of free access to its cloud based song collection of 200,000 songs.
With a monthly subscription fee of only SGD10 (less than a Carl Junior Burger Meal), subscribers will have 24 hour access to this huge collection of songs for the month, anytime. S$10 for 200,000 songs, for a month! This is definitely cheaper than any Karaoke room rental!
The subscription fees can be set to auto renew monthly or you can cancel it at anytime.
- Truly Singaporean
Popsical Remix is proudly Singaporean but has taken the Karaoke world by storm regionally. With its local affiliation, we are rest assured about its quality after-sales service.
The support from Popsical, is very good. When my hubby had some issues, his email was always answered before the end of the day. The staff was friendly and obliging and helped to clarify our queries promptly.
Disco lights optional 🙂
The Popsical Remix is an amazing device that offers our family a chance to bond over singing with virtually unlimited songs. It’s ease of use makes it great for gatherings! It’s great during festive occasions too when family and friends come for visit. The Popsical Remix is now a fixture at our family gatherings, with disco lights optional!
Here are some FAQs which we asked the staff regarding the system.
Q1. What is the difference between the Popsical Remix and the previous Popsical system?
The previous Popsical device comes with its dedicated soundbar which the microphone and the Popsical unit is linked to. The sound bar is large and heavy and if there are issues with connectivity, the entire Popsical system can’t be used.
With the Popsical Remix, the control unit can be linked to ANY external speakers with a 3.5mm audio jack. The device for sound output / speakers is up to the user.
The Popsical Remix also features a pair of microphones that are improved with great sound! Also not only does it link seamlessly to the control unit, we could control the acoustic setting on the microphone and app itself! The sound reproduction is so good, we sounded like Pros!
Q2. Why do we need to pay for the monthly subscription?
The monthly fee is to service the copyright fees of these songs as well as new songs to come. With the small amount, we could get original tunes with their high quality original music videos 24/7. If you only need a 24hour pass (say, for a gathering or birthday party), you only need to pay SGD4.99. Now THAT’s VALUE!
Q3. What does the set come with?
The Popsical Remix retails at SGD499 and comes with 2 microphones and a Popsical Remix unit along with a remote control, a simple manual and USB charging cables. To find out more about the Popsical REMIX, please visit: https://popsical.com/ or https://www.facebook.com/PopsicalKaraoke
