KMid is a midi/karaoke player with many features.
KMid displays the text of karaoke files and change its colour as it is being played so that the tune can be easily followed !
It uses /dev/sequencer as output device supporting external synths, AWE , GUS and now also FM cards (such as sb16 or sbpro).
Here are some key features of "KMid":
· KMid has a nice interface to display karaoke lyrics.
· A channel view to see what notes is each instrument playing.
· Supports external midi synths, AWE cards, FM output, and GUS (for the later, needs the Linux Ultrasound Project driver and gusd installed).
· Powerful Midi Mapper that will make people with no general midi synths happier than ever :-).
· Collections with unlimited number of songs !
· Drag & drop so you can drop in KMid any midi file from a kfm window.
· Customizable fonts for karaoke text to be displayed.
· Supports the two standards to introduce lyrics in midi files, that is, lyrics or text events (and guess which one a song uses automatically)
· Session Management. If a song is playing while you logout from KDE, the next time you login, the same song will start playing !
· Can play some broken midi files which make other players core dump !
· Can open gzipped files just as any other midi file.
· A Volume bar to change the volume of the song.
· Consumes approximately 0.1% of my CPU (depends on the complexity of the song)
· Runs on Linux and FreeBSD (perhaps also other unices ...)
What's New in This Release:
· KMid current version has support for midi mappers, karaoke, playlists, and much more.
