What is a Karaoke CD+G?

We all want to sing along with our favorite music, and todays technology makes any genre possible. Karaoke has definitely evolved since the invention of the first Karaoke machine in the 1970’s which was nothing more than a car stereo, coin machine and an amplifier created by a Japanese drummer.

In the 90’s Karaoke made its way into the United States and now in the 21st century it is definitely a part of mainstream culture. And of course, with cutting edge technology, we all knew that Karaoke systems could only improve, bringing us the creation of Karaoke CD+G.

An extraordinary Experience

So, we have all used compact discs, or CD’s, and most of us have used these discs containing images and lyrics which are called compact discs plus graphics, CD G. These types of discs are very common and are certainly part of the mainstream culture that our amazing world of today’s technology skills have provided us.

Now, let’s add “Karaoke” to CD+G and you and I now have an incredible system that provides us with images and graphics, lyrics in the normally unused subchannel of the tracks. When hooking up your Karaoke CD+G to a television or computer monitor you will have the ability to view the graphics and lyrics making your experience even more extraordinary.

The Karaoke CD G discs are in very high demand as the karaoke software has been created to program your choice of songs, lyrics and images with readily available apps that help you integrate your music of choice into harmonizing digital bliss. Karaoke CD+G Creator is unique in its compatibility with almost all players leaving you to enjoy the opportunity for storing data.

This very individual piece of music art has been proven and tested to be compatible with a multitude of devices such as Atari Jaguar CD, the 3DO Interactive Multiplayer, TurboGrafx-CD, Turbo Duo, the Sega CD, the Philips CD-I, Sega Saturn, JVC X’Eye, LaserActive players with most installed game modules.

Its exemplary sound tracks cannot compare to any other disc out there when it comes to enjoying the true Karaoke experience.

Entertainment value

Let’s say you are planning a Saturday night with friends and Karaoke seems to be the best entertainment choice. How great would it be just to hook up Karaoke CD+G, pick a song from the infinite collection you’ve downloaded via software apps, and have a night that no one will forget?

This truly is in my opinion one of the most innovative Karaoke designs of this century; and gives you endless possibilities into the world of musical creation; and makes for a great karaoke party. Not only will it make for a great time in helping your friends become the next music industry’s icon, or so they will think, you can use this Karaoke genius to simply impress yourself.

Its capabilities are unfathomable until you actually experience the vivid graphics, lyrics and unsurpassable sound of the tracks.


In the event you aren’t sure what “ripping” is, it is when you “rip” the CD audio formatted songs off of the CD and create individual audio files. You will not experience the graphics, images, and you will need the appropriate software to do this, and it becomes a compressed format.

Therefore, it no longer becomes a CD+G, but still gives you the ability to listen to your favorite genre from your iPod or Mp3. However, you no longer have Karaoke CD+G which is our main topic but we thought it was important to know you do have that capability, without the entertainment of the lyrics and the show.

Basically, the difference between a CD and Karaoke CD+G is that the device has added graphics. The graphics are the lyrics and images produced on the screen whether it is a television screen or computer monitor. The lyrics scroll by, change color, light up, showing you when to sing the words and making it seem as if you are an expert at Karaoke.

If you are trying to honestly be that Karaoke expert, then you can always track down the music, learn the song and then apply it to Karaoke CD+G. Most people, like us, do it for fun and the entertainment value, not to mention how convenient and compatible it is with most every device.

A must-have

Finding what you need for this vocal reality will not be too much of a challenge, although as mentioned before, it is growing in demand. A number of large stores carry your opportunity to become familiar with the songs before your friends do, or even better before you attempt a song in front of a group of strangers.

Singing in the shower never sounded better, and who knows, with enough practice with Karaoke CD+G songs, you just might beat out the crowds with your extraordinary new ability. That sounds like fun to me! And now you may be wondering why you had not heard of this kind of entertainment before, but it may just be because you didn’t know the difference between Karaoke CD’s and Karaoke CD+G.

And now that you do, it should interest you to know that you can find what you now must have on Amazon, E-Bay, Best Buy, Target, just to name a few. There are a number of websites that provide exactly what you are looking for when creating this colorful, fun world of Karaoke that is unique to the ordinary Karaoke we are used to.

Can you imagine just plugging into a television or a computer monitor and suddenly experiencing a plethora of different kinds of music? Any kind of music you or your guests love to sing is at your fingertips. Unimaginable graphics and images along with lyrics everyone can sing to at just the right time in step with music, is what Karaoke CD+G is all about.
