Create & manage lyrics collections.

Overview

KaraTunes is an add-on for iTunes allowing users to place all of their lyrics data into a single database which can then be saved, modified and searched with an easy-to-use interface. It automatically finds lyrics from online lyrics databases for the whole iTunes Library. Users can create synchronized lyrics and watch them while iTunes is playing.

It also allows users to export music and synced lyrics as QuickTime movies to watch on the Mac, PC and iPhone/iPod touch. In addition, users can now set delay time for synced lyrics playback and use customized keywords for Google search.

What's new in KaraTunes

Version 3.3.2:
  • Improved OS X 10.7 Lion compatibility.
  • Minor bug fixes.

This is an extremely uneven app. It accomplishes its prime goal (timing Lyrics with music) brilliantly. This part of the app is EXTRAORDINARILY easy to accomplish. so Bravo to developer on this. HOWEVER: I wish the author would stop wasting his time improving the LyricWiki connection** and instead make it possible: 1. to simply drag songs from iTunes to KaraTunes (the Library/playlist model is funky, and rarely works anyway) 2. Automatically add lyrics that already exist in these iTunes 3. The interface in general could really use improvement - often I can't even figure out which song will play next., There needs be keyboard commands for The most basic commands: "Current Song", "Play Selected", full screen, etc etc... sorry bout following rant but I was frankly angry reading that latest update was AGAIN about Lyric Wiki when the App is just barely stable, and could use lots o work. **WHY THIS (LyricWik) IS WASTE OF TIME: There are gazzillions of Apps that handle LyricWiki and fetching lyrics better anyway (notably Harmonic - which auto fetches as you play songs). Frankly I want my lyrics IN iTunes anyway (the info is then embedded in the song itself). So why not just grab the lyrics from iTunes. What a pain to have to copy/paste this data

I want to support this app but unfortunately Karatunes no longer works. Increasingly, after launch, the only message i get is "An exception of class NilObjectException was not handled. The application must shut down." This error message has always appeared since i started using it, but now it's the only thing i get. Unless this is rectified, or is seen to be being dealt with, i must look elsewhere. No point using software that's unstable. None at all.

i think you can use the "copy to/from itunes" feature, which is available under the file menu. of course, it would be better if it can do this automatically.

thanx for comment The copy from iTunes is buggy, often doesn't work at all, and as I suggested, should be automatic.

It is a good app and i registered it, anyway it still has some frustrating bugs like random crashes and strange behaviours. For example i'm not able to import songs from my entire music library (perhaps because is it too big?) without any error message to me. An idea for a great improvment: let the user the possibility to "add" his lyrics-site with a parser-template to extract the lyrics. There are allot of websites like lyricsfinder but in different languages...great for non english speakers like me! great value piece of code, anyway...very cheap and useful

I've found a bug. The "An exception of class XMLException was not handled. The application must shut down now." error that several people have reported will be caused by a song title which has an open parenthesis ["("] without a corresponding closed parenthesis. I tried to eMail the developer but only get a "cannot add records" error.

All I get when I try an import of songs is this error: "An exception of class XMLException was not handled. The application must shut down now. Exception message : messager XML parser error 7: miss matched tag. Exception error number 2". Running 10.3.9 on PowerBook 1.67 ghz.

A really nice feature to have in this program would be to be able to modify the formula that is used when doing a google search. Often, since songs are on compilations, I have to modify the search string to get any results.

This works fairly well. Getting Lyrics from multiple songs would be nice but other the that a good app.

I really wanted an app to store songs, but this one is rather crash-prone... well, hope they'll improve on that. To the developer - here's an idea of a feature you should add to this app. It should have the option to check your iTunes library, and automatically find the lyrics for ALL the songs with Lyrictracker, with no interference from the user.

And who would pay for the lyrics server's bandwidth? The only possible way that option would ever exist is to introduce a payment option. Say, lyrics for every 100 songs would be 99¢.
