under windows, tick the virtual singer and under the little black arrow on the left of the melody stave choose song with lyrics
you will get a section under the stave if you click your mouse there you can type lyrics
try importing .kar files to test it, by default it only opens myr files but you can choose, all types inc midi
karaoke files are basically midi files with lyrics.
plenty of free ones of public domain songs on the web.
virtual hymnal project is a good source if you like hymns!!

on my android but if I get on my desktop later today I will post screenshots.

I wonder if I can actually use any of the software listed on this thread to modify the scores of various works by the great composers, and listen to how it will sound like. wink

When we see people being shot, roasted, crushed, beheaded etc on the big screen, we consider it standard entertainment fare. But when we see child porn on the big screen, we immediately call the authorities.

You should be able to. If you can find a midi file of the piece, any of the recording software should be able to load it. Edit to your heart’s content, and playback. Of course, the sound quality will depend upon what instruments (software or hardware) you’re using. Using a cheap General Midi softsynth won’t give you the same quality as the expensive, professional stuff, but it’s certainly doable.

here is a karaoke site http://www.nifter.com/midi_karaoke_songs_free_downloads.htm
remember these files are for personal use and cannot be broadcast on youtube for example
this rule applies to all popular music which is why I suggested open hymnal, mid and kar files are considered musical compositions and while available for using to sing songs at home on karaoke software not meant to be converted to wav files and played in videos etc, just like you cannnot put a copyrighted mp3 from your music collection on one.
but if you open one in Melody assistant you will hear virtual singer and see how it works.

copyright also applies to public domain mid and kar files unless they have been declared open source, public domain etc like open hymnal project has, I have had to contact Youtube several time for matched content warnings inspite of naming the source and providing a link, they subsequently removed the matched content notification in all cases as I provided all the information and licensing in my dispute reply, so letting you know already.

That’s kind ofwhy I don’t bother even downloading copyrighted content like that. I prefer to do my own work and share iut on sites like youtube.
