Using custom values for Skip silence in Siglos Karaoke Professional

Filed under: Uncategorized — Tags: , — Piotr @ 5:56 am

Our professional karaoke hosting software has an option to automatically detect and skip silence at the beginning and at the end of the song. This will reduce the dead air, skip over song titles, and credits page. All this is done automatically, the software detects when the music starts and jumps there.

There are songs that start with a lengthy instrumental introduction and while it is cool to listen to, you may want to skip them during performances. You could use automatic instrumental skip option, but you may also choose to use custom per song values for skip silence at the beginning.

One of the songs that are known for long instrumental beginning part is Money For Nothing by Dire Straits. The first step to deal with it will be to find the song in Songs Database.

Once you have located the song you need to click Edit to open song properties editor.

As you can see the song uses global settings for silence detection. If you click Scan now button you will find what values will Siglos use when playing the song.

To modify the automatic start of the song you need to enter appropriate value in second into Custom field. Here I have instructed Siglos to skip 30 seconds from the beginning of the song, removing part of the intro. This value will be used every time the song is being played. To revert to the default settings you need to reopen Song Properties and switch back to Global settings.

Song Properties are also accessible through Edit song button in Song details window that can be opened for currently selected song on the rotation or playlist (there is Details button on the rotation window to open or hide Song details window).

How to use Merge singers in Siglos Karaoke Professional hosting software

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.

Now Siglos does its magic and you end up with one singer account. All songs from the histories of other singers will be moved to the one that is left.
