If you would like to create some Karaoke Video or CDG versions of you songs for fans to purchase as a Karaoke DVD, CD or MP3+G download, here's a way to do it.
There are a lot of Commercial CDG creating software, but I will list some free ones you can use.
Most DVD Players will play CDG Discs (as well as BB/RB).
You can create a music only version and one with the vocal just in the right channel that can be panned on or off.
You can have Guitar Karaoke and mute the guitar track then add the chord in the Lyrics:
When you're [Em] down and [B7] troubled and you [Em] need some....
these are copied from the BB/RB Big Lyrics window > Print > Copy
or Edit > Lyrics > Copy > Note based with chords.
After Hyphenating the text here http://juiciobrennan.com/hyphenator/ remove the blanks before pasting in Karakan https://sites.google.com/site/karakankaraoke/
[C] Lyrics
[C]Ly-rics
Ly-[C]rics
so the chord is not being read as another syllable.
This can be formatted in a text editor, Find/Replace "] " with "]"

KaraFun Player v1 http://www.karafun.com/karaokeplayer/v1/
this will save your CDG/mid/kar to a Video with any pic/animated background, you can use WinAmp MilkDrops Visualizations.kfp (put in C:\Program Files (x86)\KaraFun Player\Data\Presets XP or C:\ProgramData\Recisio\KaraFun\Presets Win7(show hidden folders in Windows)
right click karaoke file cdg/mid/kar in the playlist > Karaoke background > select a background .kfp from the list or Presets folder, right click Convert to Video file.

(If you need more visualization preset.kfp let me know and I will go thru that old hard drives.)
Here are the KaraFun 2 player presets that can be used in V1 KF2_Presets.zip
More Visuals: KaraFun_Milk_Visualization_Presets.zip


If you leave a silent 2 bar count-in in the wav and and midi file this will leave room for a Graphic intro like song name/artist that can be created in the initial lyrics.

Midi file Lyrics in KaraFun It will also save the midi file you create from your note base lyrics you painstakingly entered in BB/RB or the easy way see here: http://www.pgmusic.com/forums/ubbthreads.php?ubb=showflat&Number=372872
To mix the Video file and your BB Audio file together use Formatfoctory (skip the extra software during installation) http://www.softpedia.com/get/Multimedia/Graphic/Image-Convertors/FormatFactory.shtml
In the Conversion type list
Video
Audio
Picture
ROM Device
Advanced > MUX, select you Video source, select your audio source.

Karaoke DirectX Filter (for WMP) https://sourceforge.net/projects/karaoke-dx/

Mac users, there's a lot of free Win stuff but Mac free stuff is hard to find frown

Hope that's useful.

Great post Pipeline... Just came across this post yesterday when I was googling for Karafun backgrounds, I discover a great resource in BiaB for our kids. The children songs with lyric, so I decided to make karaoke video from it. I did not know it was an option in Format factory for joining video and audio, so that saved time for me also. How did you converted MILK files to KFP files? I have tons of MILK files I would like to convert...

Thank's a lot for posting about this...

Beginners Help - Muting the Melody Notation

Visit our Beginners Forum, and you'll notice our amazing Forum Community helping out new program users!

Like this recent post regarding Muting the Melody Notation: http://www.pgmusic.com/forums/ubbthreads.php?ubb=showflat&Number=458716 - Forum user Matt Finley did a great job of answering the new program user!

Our Beginners Forum really is a great resource for new program users!

Q: When I have entered chords and notation for a song, is it possible to mute the notation and just have the chords playing? This would be helpful for when I just want the chord backing track but want to read the notation.

A: There are several ways to do this. The easiest is probably to use the Mixer window and change the volume slider to zero for the Melody track. Or, hit the Mute icon on the Mixer for the Melody Track.

Another way, with more control rather than all or nothing, is to press F5 at the measure where you want to mute, and select mute or change the volume to zero. Later, press F5 and select Return to Normal, or change the volume back.

#TechTipTuesday - Band-in-a-Box® Patch Updates

If you're ever experiencing an issue with your Band-in-a-Box program, make sure you have the most recent patch update for your version - this can be done at http://www.pgmusic.com/support.updates.win.htm.

Patch updates are released frequently, and are created by our development team to fix any reported bugs, tweak existing features within the program, update demos and other files as needed, and more!

To find out which version of the program you have, visit Help | About Band-in-a-Box within the program. You will see the full version number listing as:
Band-in-a-Box® for Windows
Version 2018 (512)

The number in parentheses is the build number. As you can see, my Band-in-a-Box is up to date and will continue to stay that way because I've selected "Automatically check for updates every 7 days" within the Help | Check for Updates.... option (you can set the number of days to a different number). This window will also look to see if you're version is up to date, so you don't technically have to visit http://www.pgmusic.com/support.updates.win.htm if you didn't want to!

Once you've installed your patch update (make sure the program is closed when you're doing this), give it another try - if you are still experiencing the same issue you can report it by contacting us directly, or you can post your result to the Forum thread that also announces the patch update, like our recent Band-in-a-Box 2018 Build 512 Update (Feb 15) post.
