Developer’s Description

By Todd, Michael & James

Karaoke Surgeon (KS) can rip both CD, VCD and CDG discs. KS can open most standard files used by Karaoke musicians, these include audio, video and karaoke formats. KS can change the key or tempo of these files in real time. KS can save key and tempo changes permanently in new files. That means you can move these changed files to your phone, ipad, USB drive so they become portable. KS can apply EQ changes from a built-in 31 band EQ.

KS utilizes formant preservation to reduce or eliminate the chipmunk/munchkin sound that can develop when key change is applied to audio with vocals. KS uses the same high quality audio algorithm used in its other products to ensure high quality, distortion free audio after key and/or tempo change. And most importantly, any file with lyrics, when saved or converted, will retain the lyrics

araoke Surgeon is a new, ground breaking karaoke product for Karaoke Singers and Musicians. We developed Karaoke Surgeon at the request of customers of some of our other products. They were looking for a way to change the key and tempo of files that contained lyrics. To be specific they wanted something that could be used for ANY type of file they used, whether it was an audio only file, a video file, or a true Karaoke format file like a VCD or CDG file that contains both audio and graphics.

As a Result of This Input Karaoke Surgeon was Born!

After more than a year of development Karaoke Surgeon is now available. Not only can Karaoke Surgeon easily change the key and tempo of all of these different file formats, which was the original impetus for its development – it does a whole lot more. Allow me to give you a brief overview.

Karaoke Surgeon is a neat application specially designed for Karaoke singers and musicians. It can open any video and audio files along with the Karaoke format files like a VCD or CDG file that contains both audio and graphics.

Full control interface

The UI has all controls needed for managing the loaded files. Multimedia files can be added by drag & drop or by using the “File” tab. Excepting the “Rip” capability, all the other controls can be found in the UI.  There are no other combo menus or tweak menus hidden; everything is out in the open.

Rip function

The Rip Button opens a rip dialog window that looks like what is shown on the right. The rip function in VS allows you to rip audio CD’s, CD+G discs, and VCD discs. Once you open the dialog, you should select the location of your CD drive. Once done, VS will auto-detect the type of disc and prepare to rip it.

Complex Equalizer(EQ)

Click the Equalizer button below the main controls to open the EQ window. The preamp band is at the far left by itself. Use this to adjust the preamp volume. Below the preamp band, at the bottom left of the Equalizer window, there is a lock icon; click the lock to separate the equalizers for the left and right channels.

In Karaoke Surgeon, this 31 band EQ comes loaded with more than 60 presets that have been custom-built on an instrument basis.

Change the tempo of the songs.

The “Tempo” option lets you change the song in 1% increments or .01% increments. Like a key, as a song is playing and you make any change in tempo, you will hear it in real time, and it will be shown here as a percentage change.

In conclusion
