singassist-image3


中国上海 2016年03月16日 /ChinaNewswire.com/ 尽管歌唱作为一门艺术与现代文明几乎同龄,只有少数的人能够演唱悦耳的歌曲。而现在,这项创新的技术可显著改善所有卡拉OK歌手的演唱质量,即使歌者本人没有任何音乐天赋甚至不通五音。

Sing Assist卡拉OK神助手应用可以将声音轮廓根据数学模型分解为一定的参数,卡拉OK的每个音轨都有自己的声音轮廓,而Sing Assist卡拉OK神助手应用可以根据歌者的音域对其参数进行调整,并输出自动提高的合成音来吻合原唱所需的音度,高低和声调。

将歌者本人的自然声音提升至专业发声

由应用开发商IT4YOU制作的歌唱指导器能够处理歌者本人生硬的源数据,将其分割成独立的音轨并与原唱相匹配。为了避免提高音质合成过程中可能出现的任何缺陷,该产品的硬件部分能够将歌者的声音根据音乐本身的时间尺度进行平滑化,从而让歌者的声音仍然保持自然。

当组合(混合)合成声音和音乐的时候,该应用使用开发商独享专利的创新语音技术,保证在任何时候提高歌手的歌唱表演质量,即使在复杂的语音质量情况下(即使歌者本人有语音缺陷)。

功能和选项

该革命性的应用技术在于其软件的质量,可以支持任何设备,包括普通的PC电脑,以及基于Android和iOS平台的移动设备。所有一直羞于在卡拉OK歌厅里放声歌唱的人都可以放下过去的腼腆,勇敢拿起话筒放心的像一位歌星那样开怀演唱。

该软件同时具有专门的网络社交社区,并且支持众多社交媒体平台,使用该软件的歌者可以随时随地分享他们的演唱记录,创建相册,得到朋友的评价,评价其他歌手等等。

该歌唱指导器还可以在卡拉OK歌厅里被广泛使用,同时可以支持专业表演者进行专业效果应用(回声,褪色,混响,合唱等),而不必须使用专业音响师。本软件不仅让歌手克服心理不适,也让K歌用户真正享受到愉快演唱的乐趣。

该技术的优点在于实时进行语音的平滑化。此外,开发者已经使用解决方案,让用户不需要在使用软件前进行繁杂的系统培训任务,用户只需要选择一首歌曲后,就可以立即开唱并享受该软件为其带来的快乐。

请在第41届讯号与通讯科技国际会议(ICASSP)上查找20号展台,软件开发商IT4YOU欢迎您的来访交流!您可以亲自尝试该创新软件,一项歌唱技术的革命性突破。同时,千万不要错过我们的技术演示,一场将彻底改变卡拉OK世界的盛会。

The International Vision For Australia’s Most Significant Private Estate

Elaine_Gardens_C_Uncropped-2 (2)


Sydney, Australia, March 16, 2016 /ChinaNewswire.com/ - The historic Sydney Harbour estate "Elaine" has just been relaunched as "Elaine Gardens," with approval for up to four homes on the iconic grounds. The development approval means that the estate is eligible for purchase by foreign non-residents.

Watch the film here: http://v.youku.com/v_show/id_XMTQ5NTM2NzAwNA==.html

This will undoubtedly heighten its appeal with international buyers, aware that Australia’s Foreign Investment Review Board heavily regulates the sale of established homes to non-residents.

In recognition of that, the entire campaign has been produced both in English and Chinese, to ensure constructive engagement with one of Australia’s most prominent offshore buyer markets.

Under the proposal, buyers have the option of acquiring the entire estate, which sits over 1.7 acres on the Harbour front at prestigious Point Piper, and creating a one of a kind private compound. Alternatively they can purchase one or more of the individual home sites.

With a price guide of $75million-$80million for the whole estate, a sale would set a new Australian price record. The nation’s current record stands at $70million, set in mid 2015 by the Vaucluse mansion of billionaire businessman James Packer. The agent who transacted that sale, Ken Jacobs of Christie’s International Real Estate, is heading the “Elaine Gardens” campaign.

Under the "Elaine Gardens" vision, which was rubber stamped in December, approval has been granted for two new homes to be built each on half acre lots along the beachfront section of the estate, with price guides of $25million to $27.5million. There is also permission for an extensive rejuvenation plan for the existing “Elaine” homestead, which has a price guide of $13million to $14million as well as the neighbouring coachhouse, which has a price guide between $4million and $4.4million.

"Elaine" is undoubtedly the most important residential real estate offering in Australian history. For more than 125 years it has been in the hands of one of the world’s great media dynasties, the Fairfax Family, and played host to royalty, world leaders, celebrities, and some of Australia’s most glittering events.

When initially introduced to the global property, the campaign focused heavily on selling the estate as one lot — despite the fact it is set over six titles. But current day owner John B. Fairfax says, while the property has had not shortage of suitors, it became evident that in nearly all cases the potential for further change remains a core interest for buyers. The Fairfax family responded by undertaking its own development plan, ensuring a respectful outcome for their treasured estate while delivering certainty for buyers.

"We had hoped, and still do hope, the property would sell in a single line. Over a number of months there has been limited appetite for this.”

“Having grown up in the house it has always been my intention to manage the current process in a careful and responsible way.“

“My instructions to my architects and my heritage advisor, Mr Howard Tanner, have always been to retain the essence of the house in the proposed renovations.”

Leading Sydney architect John Rose led the vision for Elaine Gardens, which includes plans for the two new residences carefully set into the grounds below the main homestead, looking directly onto the Harbour. Conceptual drawings show them to be sleek and modern homes that complement rather than compete with the existing historic buildings.

“It’s still a quality site — it’s still renowned,” said John Rose. “Now the ground rules are there I think it allows anybody confidence to look at the proposals and say “I can be there – I can develop that and I can achieve what I want”. “

Selling agent Ken Jacobs of Christie’s International Real Estate says the quality of the development plan and the certainty it now provides will put “Elaine Gardens” in a league of its own.

“I genuinely believe there is no other home in Australia that can top this offering, because of the potential and flexibility,” said Mr Jacobs.

"No matter what option someone chooses, they will be buying into a part of Australian history and that is genuinely something to be excited and proud of.”

澳大利亚最著名房产”Elaine庄园”的新愿景

Elaine_Gardens_C_Uncropped-2-2


澳大利亚悉尼 2016年03月16日 /ChinaNewswire.com/ "Elaine"伊蕾恩庄园是澳洲历史上极具盛名的房地产,坐落在悉尼港湾的高端区域Point Piper,拥有1.7英亩的土地。现隆重面向国际市场推出,将被重新命名为"Elaine Gardens"庄园 ,并已获得政府批准的房地产开发计划,将被开发成4个独立的房产。

在这里观看视频: http://v.youku.com/v_show/id_XMTQ5NTM2NzAwNA==.html

该房地产开发计划能够允许购买者将伊蕾恩庄园整个购买,或者可以选择购买一栋或几栋新建的房产。

目前购买整个伊蕾恩庄园的预期价格是$75million-$80million澳元,这将是澳洲历史上豪宅出售价格的最新记录。迄今为止,澳洲全国的最高房产销售价格记录为$70million澳元,由澳洲首富James Packer先生于2015年购买"Vaucluse" 庄园时创下的记录。

在伊蕾恩庄园现有的优势以外,由于拥有已经获得政府批准的房地产开发计划,非澳洲国籍的外国投资者均可以合法的购买,这将无疑增加其在国际市场上的优势,因为根据澳洲政府部门 Foreign Investment Review Board的相关 规定,非澳洲籍的外国购买者只能购买二手房。

在去年12月获得政府批准的房地产开发计划中,包括两栋独立的房产将被建成,每个占地半英亩;同时伊蕾恩庄园老宅和旁边的马车房也会被重新整修。

这将是当下全球市场上最令人兴奋的房地产开发机会,给予购买者多种选择,可以购买整个庄园,以俯瞰这个著名的私人庄园;或者选择购买伊蕾恩庄园内的一栋或多栋房产。

伊蕾恩庄园无疑是澳大利亚历史上最重要的房地产,在过去的125年之中,它一直是著名的Fairfax媒体集团的家产,Fairfax家族已经在此举办了各种重要的活动,参加的贵宾包括皇室成员,各国领导人,和社会名流。

在进入国际市场之初,销售的重点是将伊蕾恩庄园整体出售,虽然整个庄园相当于6个普通地块。根据现在的拥有者John B. Fairfax先生所说,未来的潜在开发价值将是买家的主要兴趣所在。于是Fairfax家族设计了伊蕾恩庄园的房地产开发计划,以确保为买家提供他们期望的结果。

"与以往一样,我们仍然希望,该房地产可以出售给单一买家。但经过几个月的实践,市场的反应有限。"

"我是在这里长大的,所以我愿意以一种谨慎的和负责任的态度,管理现在整个销售过程。"

"我给我的建筑师和遗产顾问Howard Tanner先生的建议是,在未来的修整和开发中,要保留这个房子的原有精华。"

著名的悉尼建筑师John Rose负责主管伊蕾恩庄园的房地产开发计划,其中包括开发在老宅以外的两个新建房产,它们正对海湾,设计图显示它们的外形现代而优雅,是老宅很好的映衬。

"这仍然会是一个高品质的住宅区,盛名依旧。" 建筑师John Rose说,

"现在的策略使得每个意向买家都有信心来浏览开发计划,并说"我能够来这里,我能开发它并得到我想要的效果""。

买家可随时联系Christie’s International Real Estate公司的Ken Jacob先生,来进行出价。Ken Jacob先生就是去年销售给James Packer豪宅的房产中介。

"我非常相信在澳大利亚不会有比这个更好的机会,因为伊蕾恩庄园可以提供极具潜力的房地产开发计划。" Jacobs先生说。

"不管买家最终选择购买哪种选择,他们都会将自身融入到澳大利亚的历史中,这是令人兴奋和自豪的。"

Jacobs先生预测,伊蕾恩庄园内每个新建的海湾豪宅,成交价格应该在$25million to $27.5million澳元;老宅的成交价格应该在$13million to $14million澳元;马车房的成交价格应该在$4million to $4.4million澳元。

“My Way” Killings Will Never Happen Again With Innovative Technology Sing Assist Karaoke

mywayapp2016


Guangzhou, China, March 14, 2016 /ChinaNewswire.com/ - The new Sing Assist Karaoke application was presented for the first time at the China KTV & Disco & Bar 2016 Exhibition in Guangzhou, which took place on March 9–11, 2016.

The art of singing is virtually as ancient as modern civilization. Everyone likes singing, but relatively few people have vocal skills. Today, due to the development of the new voice technologies, the secret dream of anyone — to sing like a professional — can come true.

The "My Way" killings are a sadly remembered phenomenon in Philippines when poor performance of the song of the same name resulted in scuffles, and even murders. Between 2000 and 2010, there were more that 15 incidents and 6 deaths there. A lack of vocal skills has led to bad consequences; however, the singing processor of the new generation guarantees that the story will never happen again.

Star-like vocals for everyone

The new software developed by IT4YOU compares the source parameters of the voice with the selected tune in advance, which then automatically gives the performer a matching required pitch.

Any signal can be represented as a mathematical model. The task of the singing processor is to adjust the voice of the performer to the required parameters of a particular song. Due to the patented algorithms of smoothing of enhanced singing, the voice remains natural.

Unlike many other voice technologies, the new application does not require any preliminary training of the system. So the user can start singing immediately after he has selected the song. The singer's voice processing takes place on a real-time basis.

The technology guarantees enhancement of the vocal performance, actually synthesizing the voice of the singer. At the same time the synthesized voice is overlayed to the music.

Sing Assist Karaoke also has optional functionality: it will be possible to share personal hits in the largest social media and in its own social community.

Implemented processing of sing assistant and special graphic illustration of singing will give a user possibility to improve singing ability and learn peculiarities of unknown songs.

Protective charm against "May Way" killings

Sing Assist Karaoke is also a great solution for KTV clubs. With the new application, visitors will be singing more willingly and will not be shy, and the listeners will start really liking their performance. The new technology of ideal vocal creation guarantees the enhancement of the vocal parameters of any singer, even if they have speech defects.

Also a new possibility of evaluation of singing will appear in KTV clubs: singing performance will be compared over the entire network. It will allow KTV bars' lovers to compete with each other, even if they are in different cities or countries.

KTV visitors will be singing as best they can, but will sound like stars.

Special effects, which will be available even without involvement of a sound engineer, will add zest to the modified voice. Some of the effects are new, and some are well-known, including backing vocal, choir, fading, echo, etc.

The new software will allow singers to perform songs with all their heart, without troubling about the quality of singing. The application will make sounds perfect, and event maybe better than the original singing.

Sing Assist stands a good chance to become the most desired product among karaoke lovers.

不像许多其它语音技术,​该​移动应用程序不需要对系统进行任何初步培训。用户可以在选择歌曲后直接开始唱歌,语音处理在歌者演唱的同时进行实时调整。

该技术能够确保增强人声的表现,它可以合成原唱歌手的声音,并且同时将合成的语音叠加到音乐中。SING卡拉OK神助手应用具备可选的功能,能够将歌者演唱的最好的歌曲随时分享到各大社交媒体平台和自己的社交群体中。

该应用同时具有演唱助理和特殊图形显示,可以帮助用户提高歌唱能力和学习任何新歌曲的特殊性。

使用SING卡拉OK神助手应用,停止因为K歌而发生的杀戮

SING卡拉OK神助手应用也将为所有KTV俱乐部提供一个完美的解决方案。使用该应用将保证歌者更加心甘情愿地唱歌,不会因为唱的糟糕而害羞,而听众也将真心的喜欢歌者的演唱。

本应用是一款理想的声乐创作新技术,能够保证任何歌手的声乐表现大幅提高,即使该歌者有语言缺陷。

该应用还具有演唱评价功能,为所有KTV俱乐部提供一个演唱评估的新工具,任何歌者的演唱可以根据其与原唱的差距得出评分,使得所有的KTV俱乐部的爱好者可以进行竞赛,即使在不同的城市或国家都可以在网路上进行远程歌唱比赛。

KTV歌者将像明星一般放声歌唱

特殊音效,即使没有录音师的参与,也可以将任何歌者的声音进行修饰提高。有些特殊音效是全新的,有些是众所周知的,包括支持声乐,合唱团,渐低音,和回声等。

SING卡拉OK神助手应用将让所有歌手得以放声歌唱,而不用担心自己演唱的效果,因为该应用将使得歌手的声音显得完美,甚至比原唱都更好听。

SING卡拉OK神助手应用很有可能成为所有卡拉OK歌唱爱好者最喜爱的应用!

American Expat Taxpayers Living In China And Overseas Have A New Useful Tool

larrylipsherbook-2016


Hong Kong, March 4, 2016 /ChinaNewswire.com/ - Laurence E. 'Larry' Lipsher, the U.S. tax C.P.A living in Asia for decades and who claims some of America's top entrepreneurs and business people residing overseas as his clients, has just published his latest book titled "Larry's 2016 U.S. Tax Guide 'Supplement' for U.S. Expats, Green Card Holders and Non-Resident Aliens in User Friendly English".

This is a user-friendly guide for the U.S. tax filer who lives outside of the United States but is still required to file his or her U.S. tax return on an annual basis. This book explains, in an easy, informal and frequently humorous manner what the tax filer's requirements are and the pitfalls to look for to avoid what could otherwise be harsh penalties.

Aslan Tax Review's Laurence E. 'Larry' Lipsher has written six prior annual books, updating and expanding upon topics about that the American expat filer should be aware. Lipsher has spoken about taxes all over the world and is a popular 'tax entertainer'.

In addition, this year's book also includes "Nine Essays from a Transpacific Rock 'n' Tax Man", a mini-memoir covering the author's years in the rock music business, overcoming a cocaine addiction to become a wine industry tax expert and then going through what is perhaps the weirdest manifestation of a mid-life crisis by starting all over again, 25 years ago, as an American accountant in the People's Republic of China.

Lipsher, a past president of the American Chamber of Commerce of South China, wrote the Asian Tax Review for Tax Analysts of Washington, DC for 12 years. He's been featured on CCTV (China Central Television World Wide Watch, the most widely viewed evening television news program in the world (with over twice the viewing audience than watchers of the Superbowl) as well as CNN, CNBC, Reuters-TV and The Wall Street Journal-TV.

The book has the ISBN# 9781456626396 and is available on Amazon at http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01CHGNDIU
