Create karaoke songs from AVI and MPEG media files. The program enables laying video on top of audio and adding texts with the customizable generation of karaoke animations. Importing CD+G karaoke songs or KAR data with pre-made presentations is possible.

Karaoke Video Creator is a feature-rich application for creating CD+G files for karaoke machines. It has tools for synchronizing lyrics with MP3 Music files and vocal removal features, that work quite well. This allows you to create full length karaoke videos with lyrics. The vocal removal features allow you to remove the original/professional singer's voice from the final video. However, the trial/demo version doesn't allow you to save the '.pk2' files. I've also found out, that the vocal remover often creates garbled or speeded up versions, though an advanced user can adjust the settings (attenuation, trebble, bass etc.) to improve the results. However, as I am not a sound expert I have not been able to use these options effectively.

If you are a profound user, you can also import MIDI/KAR files to Karaoke Video Creator. Most of the described features can be accessed through the 'Karaoke PowerWizard' that allows you to create professional karaoke videos very quickly. You can also create movie files in a wide range of formats and compression systems, though the free version causes a watermark to be placed behind the lyrics.

Furthermore you can also add new background images, customise the themes and fonts and create your own titles and credits. It's a huge package!
