"Hands-Down Best Karaoke Software Available"
AWESOME SUPPORT from the developer. Frequent and timely addressing of any bugs, new feature request, support requests. Integrated music stores make adding music painless & focused. Singers can control their songs from an iPhone or iPod Touch.
Other karaoke operators in my area might find out about this software.
I've run a weekly show with this software now for 30 months with only 2 crashes during a gig, neither of which prevented the current song from finishing. That may seem like a lot of crashes, but for a program that is not even in alpha much less beta it's outstanding. Adobe's Creative Suite crashes way more often.
The integration with the iPhone/iPod Touch app is some serious WOW factor that my karaoke singers can't get over. The fact that the software remembers what they've sung (and what key they've sung it in if they changed it) blows their drunken little minds. Changing songs at the last minute is a frequent pastime of theirs, too, but much less painless after kJams.
Looks and works very much like iTunes, so there's instant familiarity with what you're looking at. Features are added frequently, there are constant discussions on the kJams forums about ways that the software can be improved, discussions in which the developer participates.
In the only instance where I needed the developer to urgently work out an issue, he was able to fix my issue remotely during his "office hours." And I know he's done the same for other users in the course of tracking down a bug or resolving an issue.
It just works. This program is a beast when it comes to taming a show and allowing you extra time to talk/flirt with singers and enjoy the karaoke.
