something to sing along to songs (CD? MP3?) with that has a mic and ability to use headphones? Even better if it can replace or subdue the recorded vocal to replace it with your own.

is there such a thing? Battery operated, take anywhere?

thanks

(noob at singing but need to learn how and get practice/confidence in some sort of privacy)

"Karaoke machine?"

sort of, I suppose.

hand-held portable with microphone and headphone output? Tempo change (without changing the pitch)? Subduing the recorded vocal so any MP3/CD can be used?

Problem is that you need someone with a discening ear to judge your pitch an tonal quality. If you're really off and don't realize it You'll continue to make the same mistakes.

Also there is a lot more to singing than just hitting pitches. A lot has to do with breath control, using the resonances of your sinuses and such, tongue placement and pronunciation and emloying techniques that don't harm your voice.
A good teacher or coach may be essential.

"Problem is that you need someone with a discening ear to judge your pitch an tonal quality. If you're really off and don't realize it You'll continue to make the same mistakes."

true, although to get to a basic level, I trust my judgement: have good relative pitch playing anything with strings on it for many years (mando's, lutes, guitar, bass, sitar), and with using headphones to hear my voice I overcome the problem of hearing my voice inside my head - I'm also a live-sound engineer, mixing bands, so tonal quality I "Get".

"Also there is a lot more to singing than just hitting pitches. A lot has to do with breath control, using the resonances of your sinuses and such, tongue placement and pronunciation and emloying techniques that don't harm your voice.

100% agree with you - in my case WILL be essential, but we don't have our singing tutor in our pocket listening us to practicing away from lessons. It'll be a tool, not a miracle worker.

I take it there's no such device on the market? Something simple: plug'n'play? Shame, Tascam make similar for guitar and bass.

"The mic input lets you to play along with multi-effects, including a vocal canceller so you can sing along with your favorite bands."

yep, that'll do.

thanks @berndog. There's obviously nothing else on the market that'll do similar.
