www.scriptsoftware.com [iStar Composer] doesn't just add text. What makes it really stand out, for me, is the addition of karaoke timed lyrics to any song
Kapaa, HI (PRWEB) January 11, 2006
Script Software has announced at Macworld San Francisco an open invitation to all musicians and music publishers to start adding synchronized lyrics to every song they create using iStar Composer.
"Downloadable music is convenient but it has been missing one critical item and that is lyrics! In the 60's and 70's on the back of the record albums were the lyrics to the songs later in the 80's and 90's CD's had the lyrics on the inserts. Amazingly, downloadable music has not included the lyrics," stated Ben Dunton, software designer. "iStar Composer remedies this loss by being the first and only software that makes it easy for anyone to quickly embed synchronized lyrics in any song and even have them display sequentially in iTunes and on their iPods."
There is a constant battle to convince users to abandon music piracy and purchase their music legally. By adding synchronized lyrics to their music, musicians and music publishers add value for the music lover, providing yet another reason to purchase rather then pirate music.
"iStar Composer doesn't just add text. What makes it really stand out, for me, is the addition of karaoke timed lyrics to any song," said musician Marty Howe. "This means when you hear a line you can see that line immediately in iTunes and on the iPod. Its both obvious and a breakthrough. Apple or Microsoft should buy this. I want my music to have embedded lyrics and I wish all music came like this."

iStar Composer can be used for editing and displaying lyrics, opera, plays, musicals, karaoke, jokeoke (where people imitate a Robin Williams or other comedy routine), poetryoke (poems done to music), children's stories or children music, church music, lyrics/text for the hearing impaired, translation of text/lyrics, text for podcasts, display of text for any audio track. Seeing just the title of the song and the artist's on an iPod is not using its full potential.
"iStar Composer was designed to make it easy to add synchronized lyrics in minutes to any song. I personally want to invite every musician to try out the software and contact us if they have any questions," Julian Miller, CEO of Script Software said, "It won't be long before downloadable music will be judged not just on the song's quality but also on what is included, such as synchronized lyrics or other multimedia."
iStar Composer is $30. This version allows publishers to embed lyrics in any song. A musician or music publisher that owns the copyrights for that song can then distribute it with the embedded lyrics the same as any other downloadable song. iStar Composer works with Apple's DRM for iTunes.
