Question:

How do I use the Karaoke features in SAM Party DJ?

Answer:

SAM Party DJ has the capability of playing mp3+cdg files. If you already have a collection of files for karaoke use then they must be a playable audio media format and cdg file zipped into one archive. If not then please continue reading on how to create these archives.

Hardware Needed

  • If you don't already have one, buy a Plextor CD-RW. Many CDRWs will not read or write a CD+G properly, all Plextor drives do.
  • Make sure you have plenty of free hard drive space as the conversion process may need over a gig per CD+G.

Software Needed

Ripping the Karaoke Disk

  • Start Audio Grabber and insert Karaoke Disk
  • Click on Settings -> General Settings. See Fig. 1

  • In the first option, Grab to, select MP3 file via intermediate wav file, Delete the wav file.
  • The mp3 encoder needs to be set to LameEnc. If it is not there you need to grab the lameenc.dll from a website and include it in your audiograbber install directory.
  • Click OK
  • Insert Karaoke Disk (Track listing should be displayed on the main window)
  • If your burner is cd+g compatible, you should see a number of labeled tracks and one data track. If you see only labeled tracks, your burner is not compatible.
  • Choose CD -> Grab CDG Tracks (Karaoke) -> Grab to .cdg + compressed file
  • Compress the resulting file for each individual track to the zip format using the system's Compress (zip) Folder capabilities.

Importing to SAM Party DJ

  • Import zip files as you would any other media format into the SAM Party DJ Software.
  • Choose the Karaoke category.
  • Add Sub folder and call it KDJ, or any other name appropriate for the collection
  • Click the + icon and add each track or you can add the entire directory contents of a zip collection.
    • Please note that the import feature may take some time to add all files.
  • SAM Party DJ will extract the zip's and play the files for you.
