How to Organize a Karaoke Party with Kanto Karaoke

If you want to organize a real karaoke contest, you can say goodbye to the leaflet on which to note the name of the singer of the song etc… Now with Kanto Karaoke everything is done in a automatic and simple way.

Just click the SINGER PLAYLIST button (bottom right) to open the screen where you can start listing the singers and the songs to sing

Clicking on ADD button  you can add a new “singer” entering its name, song (selecting it from your PC or playlists already created within the program), and setting the tone of the song itself (leaving zero remains original).

When done, you can double-click on the first line (first singer) to start playing the song. The dual monitor will also be activated (to be placed on a second screen, TV or projector) and before each song is played, an announcement window will indicate the title of the song, the name of the singer and the three “next singers“. In the figure below an example of this window (which is customizable):

This announcement window is displayed by default for 10 seconds before that song starts. However, you can change this duration by clicking on “Settings” and changing the “Intro Message Length” value.

You can also change the size of the text, set the color, and enable / disable the opening of the accouncement window.
Below you can activate also the autoplay for “Singer Rotation“: at the end of the first song, the program shows who is the next singer and automatically starts the second song, and so on….

  1. Hi I have 100’s of karaoke tracks where do I upload them so I can do a search, I can only see that feature if I upload to playlist

    • You can create a playlist and upload all your songs there. In this way you will be able to use the “Search” feature in the software to find and open a song in a fastest way!

  2. how do you add more songs to a particular singer, or you can only do one song per singer.

    • You need to create always a “new” line for song… even if the singer is the same…

  3. How can I create a song list for singers to sing from?

  4. I meant the song list for singers to see all my songs and decide which one they will sing. Like a folder.

    • You just have to create a playlist in the program with all your songs/database. Then you will be able to easily find songs with the “search” feature.

  5. I really like the ease of use in the trial version. For a Professional KJ, who has tens of thousands of karaoke tracks in a folder structure with many sub-folders, and sub-subfolders of sub-folders, can these all be added into single playlist (or equivalent) so that the entire karaoke library is searchable? Thanks very much.

    • Sure, it is possible!

  6. I am one of the old fashioned DJ’s that is just now coming into the computer age. I have the karaoke disc player and all of my songs are on discs. Can Cd tracks be ripped and then added to the software search file?

    • Yes, it’s possible

  7. can I use this software to add my regular karaoke cd’s and also cdg discs to my laptop — and add them all o my master playlist?
