Mikey (formerly named "WinKaraoke") is born on a simple idea: it's easy to play songs with a PC, to have a Karaoke you simply need something to synchronize the text with song.
The winning idea for Mikey is the simple file format, a normal text file (with MIK file extension) contains all the needed informations to show the words of a MID song file: each "text page" is associated to the time (in tenths of seconds) elapsed from the start of the song, and the program simply shows that "page" when it's time to do it. The same method is applied to "coloring" events, i.e. the words being sung. That's it!
And the MIK file format is freeware too, so you don't have to edit the MIDI files to add your karaoke (like other karaoke programs do): with the Mikey Editor you can easily create your own karaoke files!
Do you have another Karaoke program? No problem you can convert your existing *.KAR files to *.MIK by using the integrated converter function!.
