Youka!

I know, I know, no new features. But this is major! And straight forward. Youka (YouTube karaoke) is a cross-platform, open source app that allows you to search for any track for which a video exists on various platforms (YouTube, Vimeo, etc.) ad then it automatically downloads the video file, finds...

Re: SARS-CoV-2

Yes, like I said, you could use DaCast, which, relative to other video streaming services, is relatively cheap at $19/month for 300 hours. Facebook Live and Youtube can do it too, even Zoom, and take care of most of the multicast infrastructure, you'd just need a way to specify the video window as t...

SARS-CoV-2

Seriously, though, wouldn't it be great to have the ability to stream the video window over server, so as to facilitate some sort of online karaoke offering, such that the lyrics and music stream to the singer on a secure feed (linked to their Server creds) and the singer's video feed multicasts to ...

Re: Adding lyrics

BTW ( a year later) the easy way to solve the original problem is to open both the instrumental track and the original in an Audacity window, and then add or remove silence from the front of on of the tracks to get them is that they both start at exactly the same spot. (If they don't actually start ...

Preferential album sort order

And now in the "Yeah, right, one day" line of requests: In lieu of a previous request for smart song replacement (picking the "best" version based on a user-defined list) a nice work around would be to allow a preference for changing the alternate version list sort order from ascending alphabetical ...

Re: Removing voice from TunePrompter

Howard, You just need to count the seconds until the music starts in the version where the intro silence is longest, count the seconds until the music starts I the other track, then add the necessary silence to that track to make it sync with the version with lyrics. Then you can use the track with ...

Re: Adding lyrics

It's doable. I've done it. It's annoyingly frustrating, EXTREMELY time-consuming, and really not worth the time and effort, and will NOT be appreciated by anyone, but it DOES give one a sense of accomplishment to hand craft an apostrophe out to empty CDG fonts and shifting the next letter over a few...

Re: Don't see intro

I wouldn't use Audacity for this. Use a lossless MP3 editor, like Fission, to add the 10 second silence. That way when you save you get EXACTLY the same audio track you started with, just with ten seconds in front of dead air. Otherwise when you re-encode, you WILL have a slight reduction in sound q...

Re: Webserver Links Safari issues

If you are willing to get cheap Android tablets, why not get cheap, older laptops, and just use the web server?

Re: Using kJams 2

To solve your LaunchPad issues the "correct" way in future, do the following: First, try just killing the Dock. Run Terminal from the Utilities folder, then type: killall Dock and hit turn, The Dock will quit then restart itself. This also kills LaunchPad. Most of the time, this will cause LaunchPad...

Re: Strange Problem

I modified the original iTunes Crossfader code in AppleScript many years back to crossfade between the currently set volumes for both kJams and iTunes. The Python code is basically based on the old AppleScript. But it should be able to crossfade correctly regardless of how low you start the playback...

Re: "Key" meta data: where does that come from?

That will be nice, for the people who know all of the stuff that Producer does that isn't in the tutorials. That would probably be me, since many of those weird, hidden mystery fields were added for my project with a certain evil karaoke company, based in the U.K., for whom I made thousands of prof...

Re: Placeholder song

Just pick ANY song in your library, duplicate it in the Finder, rename it whatever you want, import it into kJams, and use that as you placeholder.
