Free Karaoke and Accompaniment Tracks

karaoke songs downloadOne of the questions I get asked frequently is “Do you have any karaoke tracks?”. Being focused on MIDI files, I haven’t really spent too much time researching this vein, but as it turns out, karaoke MIDI has a huge following. So, since such a large percentage of MIDI users download Karaoke songs in the form of MIDI files, I thought it could be useful to talk about some karaoke websites.

According to Wikipedia, Karaoke “is a form of interactive entertainment or video game in which amateur singers sing along with recorded music (a music video) using a microphone and public address system.”  This makes MIDI a perfect file platform for the job.

*** NOTE: Karaoke tracks come in two main forms

  • Karaoke Audio Files
    • Karaoke CDG (CD-G)stands for Compact Disc + Graphics, is the standard format for most English karaoke discs. (AceKaraoke.com)
  • Karaoke MIDI Files
    • As you can imagine MIDI files would work great for Karaoke background tracks because of all the usual great features of MIDI
      • Extremely small files. They take up a very small space
      • Very customizable. Edit, rearrange, rework parts, adjust volumes, etc.
