WHATS HAPPEN WITH THE MODERATOR HERE
In all seriousness, robocop does have a point. While the karaokes are modestly entertaining, I don't believe they are the best at showcasing your abilities or promoting your work. A more serious approach would involve recording live musicians and mixing their tracks. You'd get so much more hands-on experience doing that than mixing midi files converted to wave files. While you do record your vocals, it isn't enough. You are missing out on important fundamentals by eliminating the recording phase of other instruments from your work.
Fundamentals such as:
mic placement (& mic appropriateness, like when to use dynamic mics over condenser mics & vice-versa)
stereo miking techniques (the differences between X/Y, A/B, &c)
phase alignment (when & if to flip polarity in a multi-mic setup)
acoustics (room treatment, &c)
gain staging (prevents fader creep by making sure all inputs are roughly the same at the advent of recording a sound source)
&c, &c, &c...
