Here is a quick video tutorial:



  1. can we add visible timer to the visual?

    • Sorry, it is not possible

  2. I just purchased your software.
    How do I input a title to the Karaoke Video I am about to create ?

    • You can simply add some text at the beginning of the song (before the song lyrics) to input a title and other details. For example:

      ******* TITLE VIDEO KARAOKE ******
      ** (Artist/Album Name) **
      *** Synchronized by xxxxxxxxxxx ****
      … lyrics of the song…

      In this way you will have all info of the song before the lyrics.
      One of our customer made this for his youtube channel, you can check it here:

  3. Can you create a karaoke medley with zip files? If now how to?

    • No, it is not possible

  4. How can I change the size on the font?

    • From Options you can change the font… there are some font bigger than others

  5. I want a lyrics editor or maker and lyrics sycncronizern which can float lyrics in music. The same in musixmatch application does. But I want my own lyrics maker like them can you please help me with that

  6. Can you zoom in (stretch vertically) on the wav form, and add tags, that can be edited (moved, inserted, deleted).
    also, can I hit a key instead of using the mouse button…
    the mouse is unstable and very frustrating to use like this.

  7. Hi,
    can I play synchronised mp3 files (mp3 with lyrics) separately audio and video signal on two different devices (sony mhc v77dw and TV)?
    in which format those files should be saved in your software?
    If that’s possible I’ll buy your softvare right away!!

    thank you!

    • Hi, mp3 files have only audio signal, not video.
      But if you want you could convert mp3 with lyrics to video using our Kanto Video Karaoke creator.

  8. Ciao,
    vorrei sapere se posso inserire il testo nel file mp3 anche rigo per rigo e non solo con singole sillabe.
    Grazie Nick
