Built-In Karaoke Song Store
NEW IN v1.4: Purchase karaoke songs on-the-fly from the new in-app PartyTyme.net store! Karaoke songs are available at $2.49 a track in HD quality. Browse, Search, Purchase, and Download karaoke songs from within the LYRX file browser so you never have to say “No” to singer song requests.
Key Detection, Key Control, and Independent Tempo
LYRX will automatically detect the musical key (and camelot scale key) of your karaoke songs so when you use the key stepper, or apply key changes to songs when added to the singer rotation list, you will be presented with the new/changed key of the karaoke track. Independent tempo control allows you to speed up or slow down the playing track without affecting pitch/key.
Singers and the songs they sing are recorded in singer history – including key changes when applied in the singer rotation list. Easily send singers and their songs back to rotation from singer history including key changes at future shows.
Next Singers Display
While the deck is idle and not playing a karaoke or video file, LYRX will display your next three singers from the top of the singers list on the preview screen (main display) and your secondary singers display. This informs your singers who’s next, so you you can avoid any potential questions about who’s turn it is to sing next.
MIC Support With Recording
Use the microphone input on your audio interface to sing over top the playing audio in LYRX – you’ll hear it through your speakers along with the audio from the playing karaoke track. Record your mixed-output performance to share with friends! (If you’re not using a dedicated Audio Card with a microphone input then you can create a ‘virtual audio device’ on your MAC for Mic Support)
Create Text, Image And Video Overlays And/Or Backgrounds
Create stunning, multi-layered text, image, and video overlays in LYRX that you can output to screen 2 for your singers and audience to see. Use the feature for branding purposes (show your logo) or for any other visuals or messages you’d like to put on display.
Use the video link feature to automatically play a video loop when only playing audio songs, or liven up the ‘next singers’ display with a background image or video loop. These new features make for a better, more visual and memorable experience for your audience!
Automatic Filler Music Player
No dead air! LYRX is equipped with an automatic filler music player (AKA bumper music player) that’s designed to automatically play regular music in-between singers and sets. Just load-up the toggled side-list with regular audio tracks and click play on the filler music player. When you stop the playing karaoke song or it ends the filler music player will fade in – start the karaoke song and it will fade out so the party vibe never stops!
KSR (Karaoke Singer Request) System
The new KSR (Karaoke Singer Request) web-app is now available and free for LYRX owners. The KSR system allows you to easily host your karaoke songbook online (note: currently supports up to 100,000 songs), allowing your karaoke singers to browse and search your karaoke catalog and make song requests that you accept right inside the LYRX singer rotation list. Since it’s a web-app, any internet enabled device will work, such as the singers mobile phone, a tablet or laptop.
Leave the physical songbook at home and forget printing out hundreds of pages every time you update your karaoke music library. Simply enable the KSR service in options, sync your songbook, get assigned your unique KSR ID, and your singers are ready to start sending in karaoke song requests. It’s that easy!
