I am a singer/musician and want to use Karaoke CD+G’s as background to sing with. I can download from a Karaoke site and the downloads come in zipped MP3 format. I then convert them to MP3+G’s. I am not putting on a Karaoke show and don’t necessarily need a screen to show words. However, I would like to play them through a Karaoke player because that would be a simple way to change the key and tempo.
Does anyone know if the JVC XL-SV22 will play the CD’s when I convert them from the MP3’s to the MP3+G format on disc. Is the music still in MP3 format when they get converted, I assume they are? Am I correct in thinking that Karaoke players (not machines) cannot play MP3’s?
FURTHER QUESTION: I realize if a Karaoke player can’t play MP3+G format then I could simply write the MP3 part of the unzipped file onto a CD and play it on a regular CD/MP3 player through my mixer/amp BUT I need to be able to change the “key” (pitch) and tempo for many of the songs, Is it true that the Karaoke player won’t play MP3+G format. If this is the case then I will probably have to change the key and tempos before I burn. Is that correct? Any suggestions on key and tempo changing software. Advice appreciated. Many thanks!
