What’s in store for LYRX, karaoke software designed exclusively for MAC, in 2018?
LYRX is the youngest member of the Digital 1 Audio lineup of live performance software products. Designed exclusively for MAC and built around our DEX 3 technology, LYRX has already become the top karaoke player for MAC through a series of updates in 2017 — and we’re just getting started!
As DEX 3 continues to evolve as a professional level karaoke show hosting solution in 2018 so will LYRX. LYRX is essentially the karaoke-specific features of DEX 3 stripped out into it’s own stand-alone software solution. For KJs using a MAC to host karaoke that do not require the additional DJ and video mixing capabilities found in DEX 3 it’s an ideal solution.
With the recent addition of the in-app Party Tyme Karaoke subscription we’ve seen a massive influx of new LYRX customers — and it’s clear they are looking for a handful of new features that will make their jog even easier. We plan to speed up the development of these items in 2018, with a few of them well under way now.
Here’s a look at some of our goals for LYRX in 2018:
- Singer rotation management options: Instead of the basic singers list available in LYRX today we plan to include a more ‘fixed’ style rotation (similar to what is found in Karaoki for Windows). This feature will help to automate the singer rotation.
- Singer/Song History: LYRX will soon store history of your karaoke singers and what they sang.
- Automated Filler Music Player: An option to have a playlist of regular music (not karaoke) play automatically in between singers and sets = no dead air!
- Multiplex Support: Support for karaoke files where the vocal resides in one channel (mute or un-mute the lead vocal).
- Slide Show: During filler music the host will be able to display a slideshow of images on screen (in addition to the existing ability to display text, image, and video overlays on screen).
- Built in Ala Carte Song Store: Not only will LYRX users have the ability to subscribe to Party Tyme Karaoke but will have the option to purchase/download songs on demand. The songs will be downloaded to your hard drive and are yours to keep.
These are just a few of our top design goals for LYRX in 2018. What would you like to see added to LYRX? We’d love to hear from you! Please leave your suggestions in the comments section below!
