|Karaoke Home Entertainment Powering Karaoke MP3+G.|
So what is MP3+G?
MP3+G is very similar to the very popular CD+G disc based format, in fact you will not be able to tell the difference between the two when played.
Most if not all MP3+G songs are derived from the normal CD+G Disc song library, MP3+G is today's digital equivalent to CD+G, enabling you more flexibility and access to your library of songs, and being digital makes disc swapping a thing of the past.
That means you'll able to have thousands of songs stored on an USB memory stick (For your Sonken Professional MP4000 Karaoke Machine) or on your laptop (with PCDJ Karaoki Software) making it super-fast to select and manage your songs.
The Sonken MP4000 will even convert your songs for you, it has two different speeds 1x and 4x playback ripping feature, so all you have to do is insert the CD+G and Record (RIP) it to your USB Memory Stick either in real time (1x Speed) or your can speed up the process at 4x Speed.
During this process every song will be titled "Record 1, Record 2 etc" so you will need to rename these files in your PC so that they represent the Song Title - Artist. ie. "Better The Devil You Know - Kylie Minogue" the dash - is important as this will let you separate (in Excel®) and sort your song book with out it it will just be one large title and remember to rename them all the same way with either artist at the front or the back not mix them as sorting your song book again will not work correctly.
Tip: If a song title or artist (i.e. Jay-Z edit to Jay Z) has a dash remove it as this will confuse the sorting process.
You'll be able to created a song book of all your songs with the push of a button on the MP4000's remote control, as it will give you a unique playback number for each song.
The MP4000 creates a CSV file on the USB Memory Stick which you can open in your PC using Excel® or equivalent software and sort your songs by Artist and or Song Title and Print it out.
Now you can choose your song by entering the unique song number to sing your song.
Now the PCDJ Karaoki Hosting Software is a designed for Karaoke Hosts running shows with lots of singers in rotation throughout the night, it two can create a song book for you or you might like to export your song book and feed it into the What Can I Sing (WCIS) Karaoke App then your singers can requests songs via the WCIS Digital Song Book App.

|What is CD+G?
CD+G also known as CD+Graphics has the largest range of Karaoke songs available in the world today.
These discs can be played in a normal CD player but no on-screen lyrics will be visible. CD+G is the professionals choice in Karaoke and if the song isn't on CD+G it probably hasn't been produced for Karaoke.
At Karaoke Home Entertainment we have thousands of CD+G disc available with 97,250 English songs from the 1930's to today's latest hit songs and are the best quality discs having been produced by a band in the style of the original version. CD+G discs also feature chorus line backing vocals if the original version featured them. All vocals are cover versions.
Some CD+Graphics discs feature two versions of the song on the same disc, one is called a (Karaoke Version) which features the songs music with some chorus line backing vocals and the other track is the (Vocal Version) which features both the songs music with lead and chorus line vocals. Where only one track of each song is present it is the (Karaoke Version).
We also have Multiplex discs/songs which enable you to switch on/off the lead vocal during playback.
There is no video clip on a CD+G (or MP3+G), only a colored background along with the scrolling song lyrics which highlight in time to the music.
You can even make yourself a Custom Karaoke CD+G Disc so you have just the songs you know and love.

Extra Technical Information.
MP3's are compressed music files that have CD quality music stored in a small file size.
MP3+G's consists of two files (.mp3 & .cdg) that must have the same file name, with different file extensions to work, any typing error between files will result in the lyric component (.cdg) not showing, meaning you will only hear the audio playback.
During playback the two files are paired up playing the music with lyrics (+G Graphics) shown on a display.
Better The Devil You Know - Kylie Minogue.mp3
Better The Devil You Know - Kylie Minogue.cdg
Tip: Prepare your MP3+G song files by formating them correctly with Song Title and Artist separating with the space dash space before loading them into your Karaoke Machine or PCDJ Karaoki Hosting Software.
Why? As the dash - is the separator when creating a song book placing the data in the correct Excel® column for sorting and in PCDJ Karaoki it uses the - to place the Song Title and Artist in the correct fields, without it it will place everything the title column, rendering searches and song book creation ineffective.
The Sonken MP4000 supports a maximum capacity of 32GB USB or SD Card which is approximately 3000 songs, older Sonken models have different smaller specifications.
