Custom singer announcements in Siglos Karaoke Professional

Filed under: Software — Tags: , , — Piotr @ 10:15 am

When you run your karaoke show using Siglos Karaoke Professional software, the program automatically creates singer announcement with information about song that will be sung next. If you go to Settings / KJ you will find Edit Singer Announcement Screen button, that opens a window to define what information about the next song will be displayed and how to present it.

You may adjust font and style of every text used in the window, change the location of these items, and pick the background that will be used. Changing the resolution can increase the quality of image (but may slow down the display process).

When you host a show for a long time, you have your regular customers. They often have their favorite songs, but also appreciate personal treatment from their karaoke host (may it be some extra information displayed, a star image, or even a photo of a singer). Siglos Karaoke Professional allows you to shine in this department by creating custom singer announcements for regular singers.

Creating personal announcement screen is very simple. First you need to display Singer Properties window for your regular singer (you may do this from Add Singer window, straight from the rotation window using Edit Singer Properties button or from Quick Singer window). In Singer Properties select Enable custom announcement screen and then click Edit. You will be taken to the same window that you use to edit general singer announcements, so you should be familiar with everything there. Once you are done and exit with OK, the settings will be stored in the database and used for the singer for all future songs.

If you later change your mind and decide to remove the custom announcement screen for the singer, you follow the same path and uncheck Enable custom announcement screen option. The personalized screen will still be kept, so you may switch it on again later.

Filed under: Software — Tags: , , — Piotr @ 9:35 am

Imagine that you have made a mistake when entering a singer name during a show and singer complains that they cannot access their song history. Or that a singer has entered his name with a typo using remote client tool, then fixed it and you ended up with John and Johhn. Now Siglos Karaoke Professional allows you to clean up these errors.

Version 2.3.7.10 of Siglos Karaoke Professional has a cool new feature that allows to merge two or more singer accounts into one.

First you need to open Edit Singers window (use Edit Singers button in Add Singer window). Then select singer accounts you would like to merge (it needs to be two or more, as many as you like) and click Merge button on the right.

Edit Singers window

Siglos will ask you which singer would you like to keep. You can select it from the list, all singers you have chosen in the previous step will appear here.

When running a karaoke show sometimes you want to add a regular singer before he shows up and requests songs, just to reserve his place in the rotation. With Siglos Karaoke Professional you can do this using Add Empty button, which adds singer to the rotation and does not require any songs to be assigned to the singer.

You may later assign songs to the singer by double-clicking her/his name in the Rotation list or by using Quick songs window.
