Karaoke CD+G Creator is a program for creating CD+G song tracks from your own audio backing track and lyrics. CD+G song tracks are not video but the lyrics are highlighted in time as they are to be sung. Low color graphics with transition effects may also be added. The biggest problem facing those who wish to create their own karaoke song tracks is acquiring a good audio backing track... without the lead singer of course. Unless you are a musician who can create your own, your options are to use the backing track from an already published karaoke song, purchase the backing track or have one created, or try to remove the lead vocals from a standard song track. Unless you're making a parody, or want to change the lyrics for some reason, the first option doesn't make sense. There are websites that sell backing tracks and the ones that are already created can be purchased fairly cheaply. However, if you must have one custom created it can be quite expensive. The third option of removing the lead vocals from a standard song track is rarely going to work out well. Especially if you need a good quality backing track. Vocal removing software, like you get with this program, "reduce" the lead vocals on only some recordings. Also, he vocals are never completely eliminated and the music is always degraded to some degree. The reason for this is because this type of "automatic" vocal reducing software looks only for center panned vocals. With that being said, Karaoke CD+G Creator does a very good job of creating CD+G song tracks. There are various options for importing lyrics. Plenty of tools are provided to let you accurately synchronize the lyrics to the music. You can add intro and outro images with effects and animated countdowns. The bottom line is that you can create CD+G song tracks that are as good or better that the commercial ones. There are two versions of this software. The standard version has everything needed to create professional quality CD+G song tracks. The Pro version adds some features that let you be more creative. Pros:
Various ways to import lyrics. Simple to use with a wizard to guide you through the process. Includes a CD+G player. Cons:
Typical (mostly ineffective) vocal remover. No Mac computer version.
