A karaoke system in a nutshell
There’s a huge variety of specially designed devices that the same specific need of many karaoke fans. Karaoke in itself has become one of the most joyful and wanted ways to spend a weekend afternoon. Nowadays, specialized systems are installed in karaoke clubs, bars and restaurants, coffee-rooms, baths, other leisure venues, offices, kindergartens and schools. Some of those solutions can be used at outdoor events: corporate parties, folk fests, etc. For those who prefer family parties, various vendors have developed a huge range of home karaoke systems, and players. So what are different types of modern karaoke solutions?
A karaoke system is a special device that plays particular type of files — karaoke tracks. The tracks are audio records with no vocals. Another devices feature is the ability to display song lyrics on a special screen. Depending on the class and vendor’s specialization, karaoke systems may differ drastically in terms of assembly, functionality, interface and sound.
The karaoke machine types
Karaoke players and specialized consoles make affordable but the least popular options for amateur singers. They lack licensed song databases, professional sound and their functionality is limited. In most cases, devices of that kind run CDs, USB Flash storage, memory cards containing files in MIDI format.
Usually low-cost players can hardly meet expectations of true karaoke fans. Many of those products can’t boast of basic features modern karaoke have: high-class equipment/audio presets, sound effects and the ability to record user performances. For a modern consumer, using a karaoke player with poor-quality MIDI-songs is taking a trip down memory lane, nothing more.
Enthusiast-grade karaoke systems
Mid-price karaoke machines lack their own licensed song databases as well. However, they offer wider choice of track formats. So their owners can add tracks from DVD collections, YouTube channels or previously downloaded files into song databases.
For voice processing, enthusiast-grade devices often use only the echo effect. For microphones and tracks, the least customization abilities are provided. Changing the frequency pitch shifting/song tempo and performance recording are not available for mid-price system owners. At best, enthusiasts get just basic set of performance customization tools. A rating system is often based on text reading rather than following the rhythm.
Professional-grade karaoke systems
A modern pro-grade karaoke system is a reliable, fully-equipped and multifunctional device with an impressive licensed song database. All system components are always of high quality to comply with world standards. In other words, with a pro-grade karaoke machine, you can get the best sound and enjoy performance non-stop.
