Formats for karaoke machines
CD+G (CD plus graphics) is the standard format for most karaoke machines. This format can be used to play karaoke songs with lyrics displayed on a screen in any home or professional CDG karaoke machine or player.
If you don't want the lyrics on-screen, and are looking for audio only backing tracks, a CDG disc can be played in any standard CD player.
CDG discs will not play on your computer or laptop, you will need to convert the files into a different format, or check out our MP3+G karaoke downloads.
MP3+G or MP3G is the standard file format that allows karaoke songs to be played on a computer with compatible software. It consists of 2 files, the MP3 audio file and the CDG Graphics file. The combination of the two will show the on-screen lyric video synchronised with the music.
Do the lyrics show on screen?
Lyrics will only appear on screen when played with a CD+G compatible karaoke player or karaoke machine.
Are karaoke songs by the original artist?
Karaoke music may not sound exactly like the original version, these are high quality remakes of the song and not the original recordings. We work with professional musicians and singers to re-create the song as close to the original as possible.
