iKaraoke is a novel $49.99 iPod peripheral that enables you to turn your iPod into a karaoke jukebox. Now the company has released
iKaraoke TunePrompter, which lets you make your own karaoke videos.
iKaraoke looks like a microphone, and plugs into the 30-pin dock connector on the bottom of most iPods. Not only is it a mic but it also isolates the lead vocal track of the music on your iPod, enabling you to sing along with your favorite songs. A built-in FM transmitter lets you broadcast to a nearby FM radio.
iKaraoke TunePrompter takes the karaoke experience a step further. The software, available for Mac OS X and Windows, lets you create your own free karaoke songs using any song you own. You simply open the application, load your favorite song, type in lyrics or let TunePrompter help you find them, then tap your spacebar along with the music to teach TunePrompter.
Griffin is celebrating the release of TunePrompter with a contest rewarding one winner the “Ultimate Griffin Prize Pack” valued at more than $800. All users have to do is submit feedback about the application; one winner will be drawn at random.
System requirements call for Mac OS X v10.4 or later.
