I've worked in IT since 2006 after a brief stint in Journalism. At various points, I've been paid to work with MySQL, MS Office/VB type stuff, XML, HTML and Java. I'm currently a developer working mainly in Java, and am working on some Android and iOS apps in my spare time.

What's different about SingingCoach compared to the games? Is it just less forgiving, or does it feature something like the frequency analysis @slim mentions in the comments above?

@MatthewRead Fair point, thanks. I just wasn't sure if any of them were empirically better than others. It sounds like not, so I guess maybe the answer in my particular case is just to find whichever one has the song list I like most.

Are there any games that do have concept of tone, or even something like inflection or enunciation? That was part of why I asked; I watched a friend ace Rock Band vocals once by...well, it's hard to describe what he was doing; calling it "humming" would be a bit of an insult to humming. I was wondering if any of the singing-specific ones did it better.

@ReinaAbolofia I really don't care about the music selection - I'm just trying to improve my voice. I wouldn't think a karaoke machine would help much with that - there aren't karaoke machines that give you feedback on how you did, are there? I'm also thinking this is going to be a by-myself thing, not a social thing.
