storing text to music speed

Is there a way to lock the word text speed to match the music so you do not have to do it everytime

Sorry, I have no clue what you are asking. I did move it from "MTU Experiences" to "KHP4.X Help" Forum where it appears to belong.

Please write more details about your question.

They may be talking about being able to do songs one section at a time instead of the whole song in one pass. Or maybe being able to do the chorus once and then copy and paste to the next chorus.

One helpful hint is to have a master template file. Just make sure you rename the file when you import lyrics and music. That way all the songs come the same without having to set up all the lyrics sizes, intro screen, etc. everytime you do a song.

When working with KHPro you have to do the whole song in one pass. Sometimes this is a bummer because you get to the end and make mistakes you have to redo the whole thing. What I have started to do is to listen to the music all the way through with the lyrics printed in front of me and practice the song once before I do it. That way I know if I've goofed on any of the lyrics and am doubly sure of the timing. It may take me an extra 5 minutes per song to start with, but it's better than having to do the song 4 times. I can now do a song, start to finish, if I have the lyrics, in about 10 to 15 minutes. Some longer, some shorter. PRACTICE PRACTICE PRACTICE. The more you do it the better you become.

One pass only?-Don't think so

Admittedly, I haven't done it this way, but I think that the most recent versions of KHPRO allow for re-doing sections of the song without having to do the whole thing again.

The reason that I haven't done it this way is that trying to get a perfect "sync" is helpful to me in learning the song. (Plus, I admit, it takes more sophistication in understanding the instructions) But it certainly would come in handy, not only in doing a song originally, but if the underlying music file could be manipulated (adding more rests, etc,) then only the manipulated sections would need to be redone. Hmm... I might actually try and master this aspect.

NO, that may be in the future

Once you have swept the entire song, you can go back through it and make adjustments to the sync in the adjust lyrics screen, but not sweep or re-sweep a portion of a song. If you stop at any point in the sweep process, you must start over.

And yes, the more proficient you get at it, doing it in one or two passes is commonplace....I know. You must be quite familiar with the timing between instrumentation and lyrics, just as does a Karaoke singer.

It even helps to sing along as you do it, tapping the spacebar to your own voice reinforces the timing you see on the screen, and becomes second nature. You simply tap as you sing.

Jimbo is right on regarding a master template, and he is also correct concerning a 10-5 minute start to finish on most songs working in KHP.

Hey ya'll,
When trying to compose in KHP a song that you don't sing or even know, it's kinda hard to get timing so here's what I have done to help with this.

Extract wav of cdg from CD
Extract wav of original artist singing
Use a wav editing program to stretch or shrink length of song to be exactly the same on both. I use SoundForge. (this must be done from the begining of sound to end beat, not the end of fade) I add the same amount of silence to beginning and same amount of time from end beat to end of wav.
Song also should be same amount of measures front to end. If not that can be modifoed also with some creativity.

Then load edited original artist wav to sync lyrics. Now you have a vocal to follow. When done replace wav with cdg extracted wav and eveything will be at least close. You can then make minor adjustments as needed.

It works.

I really don't have a problem with songs I know. After creating a few and getting the hang of it, it really only takes one or two takes to complete.

Smile, and be number 1 suspect for sure.
