For the past thirty years or so, literally thousands of songs have been recorded as Midi (.mid) files, using a variety of electronic midi synthesizers. Synthesizers work by synthesizing the sounds of different musical instruments, each note of which is represented by a small group of numbers. Your computer, which has a built-in synthesizer, can read these numbers and convert them back into the appropriate musical sounds for each instrument. The standard midi file can encode up to 128 different instruments. The midi file is organized into up to 16 channels, and each channel can have a number of differnt tracks, one for each instrument.

Although midi sequencers can play a great variety of musical instruments, no one has yet to devise a realistic way of synthesizing the human voice. Recently, folks have started adding lyrics to midi files, and calling them KAR (.kar) files, short for Karaoke. The idea is that as you play the kar file, the lyrics come along in time with the music, so that you can sing along with the music. There are now thousands of kar files available, attesting to the great popularity of Karaoke. That's where you come in. This program lets you sing along with your favorite Midi and Kar files, and record the beautiful music thus created.

The program also contains a built-in midi sequencer, so that you can create your own Midi and Kar files!
