    "Many bugs.. but much potential"

    Version: iStar Karaoke 1.5.3

    Summary

    This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
    I have just tried to use iStar 1.5.3 on an eMAC 1 GHz model. It is able to encode the CD+G disks about half of the time. Not sure why it fails the other times. However, when it fails during encoding, the program usually crashes, and takes with it the iSTAR directory.. so any tracts successfully encoded do not appear when the program is restarted (althought they are on the disk and can be recovered). It also gets confused about which tracts (vocal) go with which music, and the synchronization is marginal at best. A few quick suggestions for developers: 1) fix the sync and stability problems; 2) save the iSTAR directory after each encoding, so that it is not lost if a crash occurs; 3) allow it to play directly from the CD; 4) separate the vocal window so that it can be moved to another monitor; 5) speed up the start sequence.. now seems very slow searching through iTUNEs and other librarys; 6) improve the reliabilty of CD+G encoding. Hopefully the reliabilty and precision of this program can be fixed soon so that it becomes useful.

    "iStar lyrics not in sync with music"

    The title of this review says it all. The first song is in sync. But, for every other song after the first, the lyrics are far behind the music. Qmidi gets it right all night long. Buy Qmidi, it works, it's cheaper. iStar has a LONG way to go. This is beta software.

    I wanted to try thos, but it doesn't let you change any preferences or so until you register...but since it is in obvious beta status I'm not willing to pay 20$ just to play around with the test version...!

    "CDG is all nice, but..."

    Version: iKaraoke 1.0b1

    Summary

    This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
    ...it seems that those saying that this product is no better than Quicktime have never actually tried Karaoke (I mean actually singing). QT does play .kar files but it offers no look-ahead function - most songs, especially the quick ones, are impossible to sing that way unless you know the lyrics by heart.<br>So, iKaraoke offers this important look-ahead and therefore it is unique. It is beta and lacks functions but it does offer that one important function and has not crashed yet, which makes it unique for me.

    "MIDI Files? Is this a joke?"

    What is the point of a karaoke player which only plays MIDI karaoke files? They sound like hell. What about the other, better formats? Because without them, all this is just another interface to Quicktime.
