Karaoke Definitions

Do you enjoy singing along with the radio? Do you dream of getting up on stage and singing to large crowds? If so, then you will probably enjoy karaoke. It is a type of entertainment where singers can sing along with the music by using a microphone, and an amplifier. Lyrics to the songs are provided on a video screen for the singer to read, as in a sing-along format. In America karaoke is often used at a party, a bar or clubs, but in Japan, where it originated from, karaoke is everywhere. These are some terms associated with karaoke.

  • Karaoke Machine – A basic karaoke machine system will have a music player, a microphone, a way to alter pitch (this helps some singers sound better on certain songs),an audio output system and a screen that displays the lyrics and/or video. They can come in a variety of formats, such as CD+G, DVD, VCD and Laser disc.
  • Karaoke Tracks – Music songs specially made for karaoke, where the main vocal track has been removed. These are usually popular hit songs and chartbusters that have been altered for karaoke use. At one time most karaoke tracks were on CDs but now they can also be downloaded from the computer using the internet.
  • KJ – Short for Karaoke Jockey. A KJ is similar to a DJ, except a KJ manages and plays karaoke songs for a party or venue. They will announce the song titles and direct turns at the microphone.
  • Movioke – Similar to karaoke, except instead of songs, movioke allows people to re-enact scenes from popular movies by using software that allows for screen freezing and blanking.
  • Hitokara – A Japanese term that means to sing alone. Most karaoke is done in groups, but hitokara is gaining in popularity especially with amateur singers.

    Karaoke is a popular music entertainment system that involves a microphone and prerecorded music. The performer sings the lyrics live, by reading the lyrics to songs on a video screen. Karaoke brings endless fun to any party. Consumers can find karaoke rentals and equipment for sale online or by visiting an electronics store. They can even bid on used karaoke equipment via online auction sites. They may also have luck visiting a local party store. Rent by the day or week, your choice. Karaoke is a fun way to spend time with friends. Sing or chant along to pop hits and chartbusters, from oldies to the latest singing sensations. Become an all-star at a bar or party with karaoke, which brings together singers in groups or as singles. You can even do karaoke from home on your computer these days, checking out the latest tracks online via multimedia clips. When hosting a singing party, some people decide to go with a theme, such as a magic show, '80s night, top hits, or a kids sing-along. Karaoke retailers sell everything from amplifiers and speakers to jukeboxes, audio/video players and wireless microphones. They also typically sell pop hit song lists to go along with the multimedia karaoke machine systems, as well as starter sets and software. Most online karaoke stores will feature music clips on their websites, customer reviews and product catalogs of machines. Most karaoke machines use CDs or DVDs, but super-CDGs can also be used for playing music and audio, which contain hundreds or thousands of karaoke songs. When considering buying or renting a karaoke machine, some players may look into getting a custom machine system, with all related accessories and equipment. The scale of the system depends on the purpose, whether just for fun or professional equipment rental purposes.
