Changing key and tempo

Siglos Karaoke Player/Recorder allows you to adjust the song you are playing to better suit your voice by changing the key of the song. To do this use key changer slider.




Key changer section allows to change the pitch tone of the song up to twelve semitones either up or down. The current key change is displayed next to the key changer slider.


You may also change the tempo of the song (from two times slower to two times faster). It is done with tempo changer slider.




NOTE: Please note that pitch shifting may slightly reduce the quality of the music. It gives better results for instrumental parts and worse for human voice.


NOTE: Key changer does not work for MIDI karaoke.


Full screen mode

Full screen (button-full-screen) button (or F key on the keyboard) allows you to display the karaoke window on full extent of your monitor. To leave the full screen mode press F key again (or press ESC).


If you click left mouse button in the Full Screen mode the Siglos Karaoke Player/Recorder window will appear on top of the display. You may hide it by clicking Full Screen again.


If you have two monitors attached to your computer you may display the karaoke lyrics in the other monitor while continuing to use the Siglos Karaoke Player/Recorder window on the main monitor (this is particularly useful if you have TV or large display connected to your computer). Siglos Karaoke Player/Recorder will automatically detect second monitor, but if it does not go to Settings and select Use secondary monitor under Display settings. If this still does not work please see Troubleshooting.



Siglos Karaoke Player/Recorder allows you to play multiplex CD+G discs. Multiplex is a special type of CD+G karaoke disc -- there are two tracks for each song on the disc, one track in karaoke format and the other track with the lead vocals so you can learn the song.


Siglos Karaoke Player/Recorder allows to turn on and off the lead vocals during playback using Multiplex slider.




This gives you the opportunity to turn off the lead vocals as needed.
