Lyrics/Karaoke


The term "Lyrics" will be used here for any text sung or spoken to a tune.
"Karaoke" means the action of singing to a musical background while reading the related lyrics.

You can define Karaoke with several sung voices, and display the lyrics while the tune is played.
Choir members will find  this option interesting, even if their choral singing is not strictly speaking Karaoke.

In a song, lyrics are related to a staff which gives, for any word or syllable to be sung, the corresponding note.

If the part is spoken and not sung, there will be no note corresponding to each word.  

The "space" character separates words.

You are invited to view the "How to insert lyrics on a score. How to create several lines of lyrics." video tutorial ("Windows>Tutorials" menu in the program).

How to make the computer sing lyrics?

If Virtual Singer is installed, lyrics will be sung.

How to define a chorus?

When a lyrics cell is empty, Virtual Singer sings the first non-empty cell above.
So input the chorus only once, on the first line, and leave the other cells empty.
To ensure a cell is empty and does not contain, for example, a space character, use "Staves>Edit Lyrics" menu option. An empty cell should appear as "//"

This mode can be disabled by inserting the invisible commands: [!dup] and [!nodup].

How to organize lyric lines?

When break symbols are defined on a score, lyrics are displayed on several lines.You can move verticaly or hide these lines from the contextual menu (Right click on a lyric cell).

Changes are applied to all selected bars on this staff.
