Want to Sound Like T-Pain Without an App? There’s a Mic for That!

by Lambert Varias

Following the success of Smule’s I Am T-Pain app, the R&B star collaborated with Jakks Pacific to make the I Am T-Pain Mic, so you can auto-tune your voice even if you don’t have an iPod Touch or iPhone and say silly things like “buy you a drank” without people recognizing your real voice.

Contrary to earlier rumors, the guys at Jakks Pacific tell us the thing can auto-tune your voice in real time. You can also sing into the mic, and have  record your voice so you can play back the recording with the auto-tune effect later. Here’s T-Pain himself being interviewed about his new toy by the Los Angeles Times at CES 2011.

What, no demo? You heard the man, the I Am T-Pain Mic will be out “Juneish, Julyish” for $40 (USD). You can also check the product’s official website, although it seems to be down as of this writing.

As the Grammy-winning artist said, “We’re milking this thing baby, we’re milking it.” Haters gonna hate.

    Hi there – Anne-Marie here from JAKKS Pacific. Thanks for the coverage on our I Am T-Pain Mic! I wanted to let you know you CAN modify your voice in REAL time with the I Am T-Pain Mic. You simply press and hold the T-Pain Effect button and sing. Record and play back is a great added feature but it is not the only way to hear the T-Pain Effect. Thanks!

    Why don’t you have a “share by email” feature? I’m copypasting urls into the emails in 2011.
