Rip, mix and play CD+G karaoke discs (beta).

Overview

kJams can Rip, Mix, Play and Burn CD+G format discs. Create playlists, sort by name, artist, album etc. Import existing MP3+G files, (zipped or not), search your library. Import QuickTime, optionally zipped Audio+G, bin/cue, CAVS (MCG, NCG), MTU (KMA), Acesonic "CDG", LRC, KTP and UltraStar files , Change the pitch and tempo independently, show the graphics (optionally) full screen and/or (optionally) on a 2nd monitor or TV. Rip using the LAME encoder. Get and submit CD meta-info from freedb. Export CD+G to QuickTime (to iPod & iPhone too!) The Pro version allows individual singers to manage their favorites, history and "tonight" playlists, and manages a "Rotation" smart playlist that interleaves upcoming singers automatically. The Burner lets you burn (optionally pre-pitch-bent) CD+G discs that will play in real Karaoke hardware.

Full disclosure: I have owned kJams Pro for a couple of years. I have talked a couple of friends into buying kJams. I have worked with Dave Cotter many many many times. It is a beta system designed by one person. It is much more sophisticated than iTunes where Apple has a ton of engineers designing and maintaining the application. I give kJams four out of five stars with the last star being left out until beta goes operational. I know several PC based karaoke DJs and their system is nothing compared to this. Finally, the only criticism I could provide is the frequency of updates. However, updates are usually for enhancements followed by updates to fix bugs which are fixed promptly. The guy is a genius and he is a fanatic devotee to servicing his customers. I am getting my money's worth and consider it a privilege whenever he spends the time to not only fix any bug but to teach me in the process. So there.

i've been in the karaoke industry for over a decade and K jams is by far the best thing to happen to the industry since Madonna . I'm top of all of that Dave with Kjams has got to be the best tech service out there , with every stupid question I have is fast and efficient to respond to me whenever I need . Bottom line if you're thinking about purchasing Kjams for your business or home use think no more it's well worth it

kJams here states that it can import quicktime files like midi, and kar. On the actual website it says it can't play them. Why is the information misleading? Does it plan to add this feature? If it did have that I would buy it on the spot. I would like to play kar files so I can control the sounds, changing instrument, muting or soloing a sound. For now you have to have two softwares to accomplish this, kjams and Qmidi or MidiCo.

Apple destroyed my ability to support MIDI. I updated my web site to reflect that. However, these third party download sites are really not at the forefront of my thoughts, but i do come by occasionally to ensure they're up to date, sorry about the confusion. kJams can MANAGE your midi files and automatically launch another app (like QMIDI) to play them for you

By far the best piece of Karaoke software out there, both on Mac and PC (and I've tried lots of them). I originally brought the lite version for my home setup, then upgraded to the Pro version (which included iPhone/iPad integration to choose songs from your iDevice). Excellent file handling and re-naming. With the additional burning plug-in it has brilliant, easy CDG writing. On top of that, a friendly, helpful, responsive developer who updates the program regularly and is very active on the forum.

This software is beautifully done -- I have used the leading PC karaoke software for years, and although it "gets the job done", kJams goes above and beyond my expectations. Easy searches, clear organization, extraordinarily high quality video output...and all in a clean, Mac UI. In addition, the software's mastermind is more customer-focused than any software vendor I've dealt with EVER. And it even has an integrated iPhone app (available on the Apple App Store) to allow people to search your music and put themselves on the venue list! Even my wife is amazed... I have read a few of the criticisms of kJams here, but I can tell you with complete confidence -- the leading PC karaoke software can't hold a candle to this package. If you own a Mac and like karaoke, I have two words: buy kJams. Steve.

Wow, what incredible customer service! I recently purchased KJams Pro and because of MY lack of computer knowledge, was having extreme difficulty with the program. Within 10 minutes of taking over my computer, Dave had me understanding the program like a pro. I would buy this product 100 times over again just for the customer support. Thanks, Dave.

Again: People, be aware that kJams makes *several* releases per month. By the time you post "it doesn't work" it is probably already fixed. Please do your homework before posting. That includes contacting me to see if I've already fixed the issue. Ten times out of ten, I HAVE fixed it already.

1) start a new thread if you're asking new questions, rather than reply to something unrelated 2) i have my own forums, please use them instead 3) or email me directly, which i much prefer 4) with a small library you should do fine. see the system requirements on my downloads page 5) yes you can plug in a TV and put the lyrics screen there

That has been fixed, please try again. And by the way, please take the time to find out what kind of release schedule a piece of software has before posting possibly erroneous information. kJams, for example, has releases sometimes three times a week. By the time you've told the world "it doesn't work" there may be a new release that has fixed the issue. Also I'd very much appreciate bug reports sent directly to me rather than blogged to the world, thanks.

Well release schedule or not, when I usually download software directly from macupdate it works. If I want a beta of a program (read Adium currently for me), then I directly do to the website of the developer and get it from there. Anyway, it is working now. Btw, I have written an email to you (from your website form if I remember correctly) as well and haven't had a reply yet.
