Sing To The World Ltd are market leaders in karaoke. We brought you the Custom CDG & DVD, we were also the first company in the UK to allow our customers to Stream Tracks live to their computers.|
Our aim is to reach as many people as possible allowing you to optimise your free time, through karaoke.
How Did It Start?
Sing To The World Ltd was set up in 1999 by the Managing Director, Rob Southall. The idea came when working in pubs and bars doing karaoke. He found many people were nervous and didn't want to sing a track they were unsure of, so he set Sing To The World up to allow his current customers to practice songs before visiting his gigs. Then Sing To The World grew to worldwide proportions and we now have the ability to reach millions of people and encourage them to sing publicly.
For more company information please visit our 'Policy Pages'.
Singtotheworld offer you nearly all of their karaoke range in 2 formats, CDG & DVD.|
What's a Karaoke CDG?
CDG stands for Compact Disc + Graphics. That means that the disc contains the Audio (music) and the song lyrics which colour-in as you sing-a-long. They play on a karaoke player
To play a CDG and get the full benefit, you will need to have a karaoke player that is CDG-Compatible. A CDG will play in a standard CD player, you will not be able to see the graphics (lyrics).
Please be aware that although some DVD machines state they are 'Karaoke' machines, this does not always mean that they are compatible with CDG's, that is why we created our DVD range.
What About Custom CDG's?
Custom CDG's are designed to allow you to create your own track listing. They work in exactly the same way as an ordinary CDG disc.
What's A Karaoke DVD?
A Karaoke DVD works in much the same way as a CDG, only it is created specifically for a DVD machine. Our compilation DVD's will play on any DVD player.
The compilation DVD's are packed with extra features that we can't do on a CDG, such as 'Rate Your Mates' and 'Guide Vocals'.
What About Custom DVD's?
The Custom DVD's are different in as much as they won't have the extra features that we put onto our compilation DVD's, but they will still play in nearly every DVD player, all you have to do is make sure your DVD player is compatible with DVD-R media. Also, please be advised that some tracks added to your custom DVD will not have guide vocals, only tracks produced by STTW can offer this function.
Is there a minimum of tracks on a disc?
The minimum quantity of tracks on a disc is 6 . this applies to CDG and DVD.
The maximum of tracks on a disc depends on the format.
If your chosen format is CDG, the maximum amount is 70 minutes worth of tracks.
If you chosen format is DVD, the maximum number of tracks is 15.
Sing to the world take great pride in producing the highest quality karaoke tracks.|
We have over 3500 tracks available on our website for you to Stream, add To Custom Disc or buy on a ready-made compilation disc.
Sing To The World also supply Sunfly and Zoom tracks for you to add onto your very own custom disc, however these tracks are not available for Streaming.
What Key Are The Tracks In?
We always re-record the original track. This means that what you hear on the original version, is what you will hear on our tracks, only without the lead vocal, so our key is exactly the same as the original artist key.
Is It The Original Track?
No. We have to re-record the track and pay royalties to the original writers. We have hand-picked our musicians so we know that we can re-create a sound.
The original sound to sing to the world tracks happens because we use live instruments on our tracks, unlike some companies who re-create the sound of an instrument using computer software.
