Now do you make Karaoke CD-G ?

Postby yamawho on Tue Nov 19, 2002 11:21 pm

Hi all.

It's been awhile.

Does anyone have info on this topic or a link ?

I know my CRW-3200e can burn CD-G disks but thats about it.
The more I figure out, the more I realize how little I know.

I did a little bit of looking around the other day. Making Karaoke discs seems to be a somewhat obscure endeavor. I didn't find any nice help sites like vcdhelp.com or any good freeware, but I did find a couple of links to commercial Karaoke packages:

http://www.powerkaraoke.com/
http://www.dartpro.com/

Dart Karaoke Studio got somewhat better reviews according to most sites, but in my limited testing I found it to be very unstable (on a Windows 2000 box). It locked up, threw memory access errors, suffered unhandled exceptions and otherwise crashed and burned with distressing regularity. Power Karaoke seemed to be a little bit more stable, but it didn't impress me much either.

I did manage to make a short test disc with Power Karoke and burn it in my CRW3200. The disc did work with the included CD+G player, but I don't have a real karaoke machine to test it in, and CD+G players in general seem to be amazingly rare, so I couldn't test it in any other players.

Just so you know Toyrus has a Karaoke machine that plays these. I bought one for my dauther for xmas but I didn't try it yet. I payed $ 120.00 cdn.
It plays CD+G disks.
