Editor’s Review for KantoPlayer
If you intend to turn a party into a karaoke night, a specialized karaoke player will prove to be much more useful than a traditional media player. One of these applications is Kanto Player. Its main advantage over other similar applications is the fact that it supports mostly any karaoke file format. What’s more, Kanto Player is much easier to use than other karaoke players.
The software is free to try, but with a few limitations. Its setup file is small and its core components can be installed in just a few seconds. There is no need to install any prerequisite tools and you don’t need powerful hardware for this software. It is compatible with all popular Windows versions and its hardware requirements are modest.
The user interface has an efficient layout. Playlists can be created and populated with songs on separate panes, on the right side of the interface, where you can also build up a songs queue. You can import and play songs in almost any format, including popular ones, like .mp3 or mp4, as well as karaoke files, such as .kar or others. If you play a karaoke file, its lyrics will show up in the central region of the interface, but it is also possible to display them on a separate window, which can be useful if you wish to show the lyrics on a different monitor or with a projector.

Clean and simple looks
The utility features an approachable and easy to to understand appearance, enabling you to get started right away in working with it.
The main window allows you to load the songs you wish to render, having the possibility of adding multiple files to create a playlist, which you can then save under a preferred name.
Play music, record songs and create playlists with a single tool
KantoPlayer provides you not only with music (MP3, WAV, MID) rendering capabilities, but also with the option to watch videos (in AVI, MPG, MKV, MPEG and other formats), allowing you to resort to whichever file you posses, without having to worry about compatibility issues.
For each song, the utility helps you adjust the key and tempo of the music file by means of the assigned sliders, as well as configure the sixteen MIDI channels and adjust their corresponding values, or turn the Melody channel off.
Moreover, the program offers a ‘Recorder’ component that lets you select the input sound source – preferably a microphone, but it can also function with other devices. Before recording, you can set the input audio volume, the chorus and reverb values. In addition, KantoPlayer features a ‘MIDI Converter’ component that helps you turn MID, KAR or MIDI files to MP3 format, with as little as two mouse clicks.
To conclude, KantoPlayer is a useful and efficient application aimed to assist you in having fun, by enabling you to design your own karaoke concerts, record yourself singing and listen to the playlists you create.

Anyone who has been to a karaoke know how annoying it is to deal with those professional machines.

With the Kanto Karaoke Player, everything is easier, because the tool offers direct options and features lists organized music. Thus, one need not worry about pressing multiple buttons or navigate menus.
Visually, the well tool is minimal. Customization options are not many, but they are enough to drop the voice and control the execution of files. In addition, the software has several options for skin to leave it more beautiful. However, there is an error in the application that overrides some buttons on the menus.
One point that needs to be improved is the video player. In it, you can not mount images or animations with random scenes (as is generally shown in karaoke) to illustrate the song. There is only option to view the lyrics.
The system voice recording tool is very efficient. With just one click, you can use the functions of karaoke and sing along with the lyrics. Then just send the file to friends or try your luck at YouTube. Read More >>
