You can’t do karaoke without the music! While we may not carry specialized karaoke software at this time, you may be interested in smartphone/tablet apps, there are many different subscriptions to choose from, and they all have a vast list of songs to choose from. If you’re looking for an easy and free way to get karaoke tracks, then you can always turn to YouTube.
If you don't want to rely on an internet connection (or wait for things to buffer), you can buy one of the many Preloaded Karaoke USBs and Karaoke CDs from us! These use the MP3+G & CD+G format and they will play through great karaoke machines such as the VocoPro DKP-MIX! These USBs can also be played on a computer with a compatible karaoke program! We always suggest at least owning a small collection of music as a backup just in case the WiFi fails.
Having a reliable microphone is a must. It has to sound good, feel good for the performer, and it has to last!
Classic mics such as the Shure-PGA48-QTR and the Shure-PGA58-QTR are industry standards in this category — and for good reason. These microphones are built to withstand moderate abuse and cost you very little out of pocket.
If you like the slick look of wireless systems, there are plenty of options to fit your needs.
The VocoPro Digital-Quad-H receiver box is party ready with it's balanced XLR outputs on each channel and 4 wireless mics, so accommodating even the largest groups will be a breeze! The Gemini GMU-M200 is a Rechargeable Wireless System with two dynamic handheld microphones AND a wireless receiver; a solid and simple setup for beginners and professionals alike!
To make sure everything runs smoothly, you’ll need a mixer. A sound mixer can also be known as a mixing console or more commonly as an audio mixer. This is an electronic device used for mixing, balancing and combining different sounds and audio signals, sources like microphones, instruments, and synthesizers, or previously recorded audio.
For home systems, you’ll need at least two microphone channels and some onboard effects. The Gemini GEM-12USB Mixer has 4 mic pre-amps, Bluetooth streaming input, playback from a USB stick, and built-in effects! This compact mixer is ideal for reinforcing small performances.
For experienced users, we recommend the Mackie ProFX12v3! This mixer is a 12-channel mixing console featuring seven Onyx microphone pre-amps with 60 dB of headroom and a built-in effects engine with 24 built-in FX, making it well-suited for live sound, home recording, and content creators. The integrated 2x4 USB audio interface offers high-quality 24-bit /192 kHz recording and playback with zero-latency monitoring. This mixer also comes bundled with music-creating software such as ProTools and Waveform!
Sometimes, using an audio interface is preferable to routing audio out of your laptop’s headphone output. A simple and easy-to-use interface, such as the Mackie Onyx Producer 2·2 very ideal. This USB audio/MIDI interface is designed for high-resolution recording and monitoring in-home and project studios.
Whether you plan to sing at home, or if you want to perform shows, you need speakers designed for that purpose. Depending on your venue and needs, you can get away with using one good speaker. If you plan on running very high levels of sound, we recommend buying a pair so you don't burn out your equipment prematurely. The versatile audio output from modern PA speakers makes them a good option for home theater speakers & beginner DJ setups. PA speakers are loud, clear, and designed to fill an entire room with high-quality sound. This is perfect for live audio and makes PA speakers ideal for this use from an audio quality perspective.
Some of the hottest-selling PA systems on the market, such as the Mackie SRM-FLEX or the Gemini WRX-843 are ideal for karaoke. The ultra-portable Column PA Systems have a custom wide-dispersion array ensuring plenty of headroom for crystal-clear, room-filling sound.
If you’re interested in individual speakers, we recommend that you check out the Gemini GSP-L2200PK and the VocoPro Thunder-1500. They pack a punch, and have a built-in mixer that allows for both Bluetooth and stereo pairing!
For smaller instances, without compromising the quality of sound the Gemini GPK-800 is a complete Karaoke Party System with Bluetooth®, MP3, and FM Radio playback plus assorted audio inputs for microphones, instruments, and auxiliary audio devices.
It sets the mood, creates ambiance, and accentuates details. Your everyday lighting usually can't set the right mood for a party, but colored lights and cool patterns set the mood in an instant. Whether your party is indoors or outdoors, you'll have plenty to choose from. Here's some of the best party lights on the market!
Believe it or not, using a mic stand can actually help you improve the sound clarity from a microphone. Without a stand your microphone could pick up and all sorts of knocks, bumps, and vibrations that could spoil a party if everyone loves to move around while singing, or ruin take if you were recording.
The Audio2000 AST4276B is a great addition to add to your setup!
