Download the official public release of LYRX 1.7 – now with KRS (Karaoke Singer Request) System!
LYRX 1.7 is ready for download and as always, it’s a free update for LYRX KJs. Learn more and install the update below.
LYRX, our newest and most popular karaoke software for professional KJs, now supports the our new KSR (Karaoke Singer Request) System. Host your karaoke song book online and allow your singers to browse, search, and make song requests from their own mobile device. Since KSR is a web app, there’s nothing your singers need to install — just visit the ksr.pcdj.com URL and they can access your online karaoke songbook. Singer song requests pop up in LYRX’s singer rotation list.
Version 1.7 of LYRX also includes a much requested “Singer Scroll” feature that displays your upcoming singers across the bottom of the lyrics output display. The singer scroll doubles as a news ticker as you can display a custom message as well (Note: you can use it to display the URL for the KRS web app for your singers).
Also included are a number of performance improvement, optimizations for macOS Catalina and Windows 10, as well as bug fixes, most notable for some older zip file types that were causing issues for some hosts.
After extensive public testing on the PCDJ User Group, LYRX 1.7 is ready for live performance. We suggest LYRX customers update to 1.7 today!
