CNET Editors' review
Right when you launch AutoRap, you can get started by tapping your screen and speaking. The app immediately records your speech until you tap the screen again to stop it. After a few seconds of "rappification" (AutoRap's proprietary syllable-mapping technology), the app will replay your recording, autotuned, timing-adjusted, and laid over one of its generic rap beats.
Off the bat, you get two free beats to play with: Turkey Burgers and OneOneOne (I've never heard of them either). You can use these as many times and as often as you like. If you want more beats, you'll have to go into the song selector and choose either a freestyle beat (originals, with no lyrics) or a beat from a popular artist. As of now, AutoRap includes beats from songs by Snoop Dogg, B.o.B., Nicki Minaj, 2Pac, and others. Unfortunately, though, you'll need to purchase credits to access any of these. What's more, if you want to reuse the beat for another recording, you'll have to pony up another credit.
There are a couple of different ways to use AutoRap. In Talk mode, you can simply say anything into the microphone and let AutoRap do all of the work. You don't have to rhyme, be on pitch, or exhibit any musical talent at all. Just speak, and the app will turn it into a rap. Otherwise, there's Rap mode. With Rap mode, you can play a premium song by an artist, and see the lyrics scroll across the screen. You can do your best to rap along, but in the end, AutoRap will adjust your pitch and timing to fit the original track. From either mode, you can save your recording and share it with friends.
AutoRap's technology works surprisingly well. I had tons of fun listening to the app rehash my name, textbook jargon, and other nonsensical, non-rap speech. One thing I found disappointing, though, was that beats must be purchased repeatedly. It would've been nice to simply purchase a package of beats for unlimited use. Still, even with the two free stock beats, AutoRap is fun and totally worth a try.
With Smules proprietary rappification technology, AutoRap maps the syllables of your speech to any beat, creating a unique rap every time.As the lyrical master, Jay-Z, says "This is the death of Auto-Tune, moment of silence". This is AutoRap.------------------ "you simply speak into your phone, and the app chops your voice and buries it in a whole mess of autotuney goodness" --engadget ------------------ TALK MODE: Talk into the app, and AutoRap magically morphs your speech into a legit rap. Create your own original rap songs with Freestyle Beats, or use Premium Songs from artists like Snoop Dogg and Nicki Minaj, to AutoRap with the songs you know and love. RAP MODE: Switch to Rap Mode and flaunt your skillz by rapping along to your favorite songs, following the lyrics that scroll across the screen. AutoRap will correct your flow, snapping your syllables to the rhythmic grid of the underlying beat. *** HEADPHONES RECOMMENDED FOR RAP MODE*** SHARE: Now go share your creations with your friends via email, Facebook or Twitter.
