Auto-Tune Invades Facebook With New StarMaker Karaoke Birthday iPhone App

Sing, Record, and Send Unique Birthday Greetings on the iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch!

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwire - March 8, 2011) - Premiere music app developer StarMaker Interactive launched the Auto-Tune Birthday app for iPhone, iPod touch and iPad today. The Auto-Tune Birthday app lets you sing and record "Happy Birthday" on your phone, Auto-Tune your voice, and post your recording to your friend's Facebook wall. Built-in birthday reminders ensure that you'll never forget to add some Auto-Tune to a friend's special day.

Jay-Z may have pronounced Auto-Tune dead, but 240 million views of the "Auto-Tune the News" YouTube videos suggest that the distinctive sound of Auto-Tune is alive and well. Now, the Auto-Tune Birthday app puts the trend in your pocket, making for awesome, creative birthday greetings. Just 99 cents to download, the app comes with ten versions of the birthday song, perhaps the most recognizable tune in the world, including hip-hop, orchestral, R&B, samba, synth-pop and more. You can even add personal messages and include a photo with microphones, hairstyles, and birthday-themed graphics to send along with your recordings.

Auto-Tune Birthday by StarMaker Features:

  • Compatible with any iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch running iOS version 4.0 or later.
  • The Genuine Auto-Tune from Antares can be used in two settings: "Hip-Hop" to create the iconic Auto-Tune sound popular in hip-hop songs and "Magic Tune," which subtly corrects your pitch. It can also be switched off.
  • Share your recordings via E-Mail or Facebook.
  • Integration with Facebook allows you to opt-in for daily reminders of friends' birthdays.
  • You can add your own personal message and a photo that can be decorated using a collection of graphics included with the app.
  • Only $0.99 at launch for a limited time, with ten free versions of the song.

"Facebook users have become accustomed to receiving the somewhat impersonal 'Happy Birthday' wall posts on their birthdays," says Nathan Sedlander, President and Co-Founder of StarMaker Interactive. "Auto-Tune Birthday's studio-quality Auto-Tune and easy integration with Facebook lets users create fun wall posts that stand out, have a personal touch, and are generally more awesome."
