Remember how universally reviled Microsoft Songsmith was?
iPhone developer khu.sh has taken the idea behind Microsoft Songsmith, reverse karaoke auto-accompaniment, and packaged it as the iPhone app LaDiDa.
Can khu.sh succeed where Microsoft failed?
It’s not clear from the video or the information on the khu.sh site how flexible LaDiDa is, in terms of styles and ability to customize the arrangements. If LaDiDa gets this right, though, it could be a cool tool for making rough drafts of songs.
We may need a few more demos from CEO Prerna Gupta to know for sure!
What do you think of LaDiDa? Is there a future for “reverse karaoke” apps?
