vanBasco's Karaoke Player
vanBasco's Karaoke Player is a freeware product that plays Karaoke (.kar) and standard MIDI (.mid, .midi, .rmi) files. It has a fully customizable Karaoke Window where you can change fonts and colors, number of lines (up to four) and background image; also lyrics can be displayed in a resizable window or full-screen. The player lets you change tempo, volume, and key. Changes can be saved to the playlist so that they are remembered in the future. You can mute or play solo individual (i.e., arbitrary) selections of instruments. There is a real-time MIDI output view of notes, volumes, and instruments; also a piano window where notes are displayed on a big piano keyboard. The player has an easy-to-use intuitive graphical user-interface with skin support and, if desired, integrates with Netscape and Microsoft web-browsers. Finally, complete install & uninstall support makes setup of this software straightforward even for novices.
