LEGALLY SPEAKING, ARE YOU GUYS "SELLING" THESE SONGS?
No, we are not selling songs, we are doing musician labor to make music that you requested.  We are a non-profit business entity who
just wants our customers to be happy singing the songs they WANT to sing.  When you send us money via PayPal you are merely
compensating us for our labor and expense in making a song you requested in the form of a donation to our website.  You agree that
by requesting us to do a song for you, you agree to only perform these songs for non-profit purposes unless the song is rightfully yours
to perform for profit.  You also agree that you will not resell the karaoke versions we have made for you to anyone unless you have the
legal rights to do so.
CAN YOU GUYS DO BACKING TRACKS DISCS FOR INSTRUMENTALISTS, LIKE SAY GUITARISTS?
Absolutely.  We can provide you with just an instrumental version containing a lesser number of instruments for you to play along to like
say the drums and bass guitar.  For this 2 instrument only scenario, you'd be looking at a $150 fee for song creation of a 2 instrument
song as a backing track.  Basically our fee is $75 per instrument for songs under 4:30 in duration.  Obtain a quote by e-mailing
alan@customkaraokesongs.com for your specific situation.
CAN YOU GUYS DEEPEN THE CUSTOMIZATION, IN OTHER WORDS IF I WANT AN ACOUSTIC VERSION OF AN ELECTRIC SONG OR
VICE VERSA OR I WANT DIFFERENT INSTRUMENTS USED IN THE SONG LIKE PIANO INSTEAD OF GUITAR OR ELECTRIC GUITAR
INSTEAD OF ACOUSTIC GUITAR OR I WANT A DIFFERENT TEMPO OR I WANT THE SONG COMPOSED IN A DIFFERENT KEY THAN
ORIGINALLY DONE ON THE ALBUM TO ACCOMMODATE MY VOICE, CAN YOU GUYS DO THAT?
We can do any or all of the above at no extra charge, it's all included in your $300 fee, you just have to request the specific tweaks you
want up front when you order the song.
SO WHAT ABOUT EXISTING SONGS/SONGS YOU HAVE ALREADY DONE?  CAN I GET THOSE?
Vocal free custom Karaoke versions we have already made are usually available for you to obtain for your private and non-profit use if
you make a donation payment of $50 for each song to us via PayPal to fund our further research and development for us building
Karaoke songs for the public in the future and to compensate us for the labor and cost involved in sending a particular song or disc to
you.  To obtain an existing version, contact our Incoming Orders Manager at the e-mail address of
alan@customkaraokesongs.com
I HAVE AN INSTRUMENTAL ALREADY FROM A FAMOUS ARTIST,  HOW MUCH TO JUST SET IT TO LYRICS ON A CD+G DISC?
The labor fee for making a CD+G disc/graphics with lyrics for a song from customer supplied instrumental music is $50.
CAN YOU GUYS PERSONALIZE THE BEGINNING TITLE, GRAPHICS, ENDING CREDITS OR SONG LYRICS FOR ME FOR THE
KARAOKE VERSION YOU CREATE FOR ME?
We sure can.  If you have special instructions like you want us to put (for example) “Awesome vocals by (your name)” in the title, special
ending credits or wherever, we can do that.  If you want the text to be certain colors or if you want images in your Karaoke version, we
can do that too.  We can even put custom messages in the music or lyrics, for example we have put marriage proposals in lyrics for some
customers in the past...
WHAT IS YOUR REDO POLICY OR DO YOU GIVE REFUNDS?
Since you are paying us for musician labor, labor is non-refundable. When you pay us for labor to make a song for you, you are
guaranteed to get the song you asked for in the format you requested (either Karaoke disc, e-mailed files or files on a flash drive).
Once you receive the song, the transaction is completed and all sales are final.  We do not issue refunds due to artistic differences of
opinion of how any given song sounds. You are guaranteed to get the song you paid us for our labor to make for you.  If you object to
some small aspects of a song, we can go back (if you request us to do so) and edit such aspects at your request to make you more
satisfied.  We are willing to redo up to five (5) specific aspects of a song if you are not satisfied. For example if you tell us, "I don't like
how the guitar sounds between 01:36 and 2:10, can you please redo it with a different tone?"...or "please redo the drum roll at 2:35"...
these types of requests we can do. It's very likely that you've already heard samples of our work on other websites or this website so you
already know what our Karaoke creations sound like and what the general quality is.  We've done over 1000 Karaoke songs so we have
lots of experience. Trust experience.  After all, we're simply doing what the original artists did at each moment in time they did it in the
song you requested so you should be happy with the results.  Our customer satisfaction rate is over 99%.
CAN YOU GUYS DO SONGS IN OTHER LANGUAGES?
Yes, we can do songs in other languages.  In terms of displaying text on the screen, we may have to use the English spelling
equivalents of the words in the language used in the song, depending on the language.

WHAT ABOUT ETHNIC INSTRUMENTS IN FOREIGN MUSIC?  CAN YOU REPLICATE THAT?
Some instruments are unique to their native countries and therefore produce certain ethnic tonal sounds which may or may not sound
the same when we produce them with our equipment so some substitutions of instruments to close equivalents may be necessary in
these scenarios.
ARE YOU THE ONLY SMALL OUTFIT THAT DOES THIS FOR A LESSER COST?  (MAKE CUSTOM CD+GS WITH INSTRUMENTALS
FOR REGULAR PEOPLE)
Pretty much we’re it.  We’ve searched around on the internet and there are a few others but we’ve heard samples of their work and it
pretty much sounds like one guy on a keyboard with a preprogrammed beat in the background.  One guy on a keyboard, it is what it is
and that’s what it sounds like.  I’m thinking that is not something you’d want to sing to.  We’re sure you know as a karaoke singer with
experience that there are lots of songs out there cheaply made for Karaoke by one guy on a keyboard and they usually sound pretty
cheap and cheesy and not like the original song.  Thus the old adage, you get what you pay for.
WHY VOCAL REMOVING SOFTWARE DOESN'T WORK...
It's a myth out there that people can buy vocal removing software and that will make a Karaoke version.  Those software titles, many
of which employ mostly the use of EQ band filters or inverting to remove vocals don’t work.  Such sofware ends up damaging the
original song too much because if you filter out a certain frequency band in the audio to remove the voice you also end up removing
too much of the corresponding instrumentation in same frequency of the song which appears on the same bandwidth.  The resulting
product is distorted and the original tones can be missing and usually traces of the original singer's voice still remain!  Vocal removing
software is not a good idea, there’s been plenty written on that subject.  The best way to sing the dream Karaoke song that you’ve
always wanted to sing is to have professional musicians record the song for you without vocals and this is what we do and we also do
the on-screen Karaoke graphics.  We are your one-stop Karaoke creation shop!
I DON’T LIKE SPINNING DISC TECHNOLOGY, I DON’T WANT A CD+G DISC.  THESE ARE MODERN TIMES.  CAN I GET MY CD+G
SONG AS A FILE ON A FLASH DRIVE?
You sure can!  Your song will be put on a brand new USB 4GB or 8GB flash drive (Drive size will depend on what we have in stock on
the day of your order).  Here’s the kicker, we don’t charge anything extra for providing flash drives.  :)  This is probably your best value
option providing your local KJ can use flash drives.
I WANT EXTRA (BACKUP) COPIES OF MY DISC I HAD YOU MAKE A CUSTOM KARAOKE SONG ON
We can do that for $5.00 per disc on top of your order total.  Remember, there’s time & cost involved to make you a backup copy disc,
Plus we QC view each disc before we send them out to make sure they WORK completely from beginning to end.  $5 is a reasonable
charge for this per copy.
CAN YOU GUYS MAKE PARODY CD+G DISCS?
Sure we can, if you give us the instrumental version of any song and the parody lyrics, we can do it for $50.  If we have to make the
music then we're at our standard $300 fee.  So basically, we can make a parody version of ANY song just like we can make regular
Karaoke!
I WROTE A SONG BUT IT’S JUST LYRICS ON A SHEET OF PAPER, I HAVE NO MUSIC FOR IT BECAUSE I DON'T PLAY
INSTRUMENTS, CAN YOU MAKE A KARAOKE VERSION OF THAT SONG IDEA FOR ME?
Yes, we can!  Our suggestion would be to point us to a video on YouTube of a song that sounds similar in musical style to how you
want your song to be and we’ll have our musicians compose something original yet similar in style as the song you have pointed us to.
Then we'll make the karaoke disc with your lyrics and then you can sing it!  The fee for this service is the same as making a regular
Karaoke song ($300).
I HAVE MY OWN ORIGINAL SONG THAT I MADE THAT I WANT A KARAOKE VERSION OF.  CAN YOU MAKE ME A KARAOKE CD+G
OF THAT?
Of course we can, we love to support the work of original and up & coming artists or established professional artists.  If you provide us
with the instrumental file, we can put lyrics on screen to your instrumental on a standard Karaoke CD+G disc.  Please give us both an
instrumental and a version of the song with you singing on it so we know where to put the lyrics in time on the screen.  Since you're
supplying us with the music and we just have to make the graphics and burn you a disc, that’s just $50 for everything, the disc, labor and
shipping!...EVERYTHING!  :)
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE YOUR MUSICIANS AND KARAOKE GRAPHICS MAKERS TO MAKE THESE SONGS?
At minimum, the easiest song takes 30 hours to make an instrumental version and the more difficult songs can take 80 hours or more.
Then there's the time we spend making Karaoke graphics on top of that.  We are making an instrumental version of a song that has
been done by professional musicians so it takes time for our musicians to learn each note of a song and play it for our recording
software.  The payoff is our replications are accurate: every drum note is there...on guitar solos, every note is there unlike some other
Karaoke makers out there which sometimes take shortcuts and it shows in their recordings.  Our pricing is based on a typical song that
takes at least an average of 30 hours to make but frequently it takes far longer.  If you divide out our $300 fee by those hours and then
factor in the time and expense it takes to make the graphics and the disc itself and ship it, you can see our pricing is very fair and you're
getting a good deal.  This is why we are a non-profit business.
HOW CAN I SEE EXAMPLES OF YOUR WORK SO I KNOW WHAT KIND OF QUALITY OF
WORK I WILL GET?
At the very bottom of this page you can browse through many video preview pane picture links
of some of the songs we've done for our customers in the past.  Just click on any video preview
pane and it will forward you to either a player on our site that will play the sample demo video
or to YouTube where some of our sample videos are located.  The Karaoke sample
demonstration videos will contain a singer's voice so our customers can get a basic idea of
what singing the song themselves would  be like.  Please do bear in mind that our demo singers
singing in the sample/demonstration videos typically aren’t familiar with the songs because the
songs are typically something a customer requested.
CAN YOU GUYS JUST EMAIL ME THE KARAOKE SONG RATHER
THAN SENDING ME A DISC?
Sure, this is the era of modern communication, it's no problem to
e-mail you the karaoke song as a CDG file set.
HOW DO YOU MAKE THE CD+G DISCS?
Ok, so the first thing we need to do is make an instrumental track for you that you can sing
along to.  Basically, in order to accomplish this, we have a staff of musicians on hand that
tackle each of the challenges of your requested song.  First our musicians figure out the key
of your song and all the notes.  Then they record into professional recording software the
following as needed to make your song sound like the original: a drum track, bass guitar,
rhythm guitar, lead guitar, sometimes keyboards, sometimes background vocals (if they’re in
the original song), etc.  The musicians keep working until all the instrumental tracks are
complete that most closely match the album version, live version, extended version, remix,
or other variant you have pointed us to.  We use professional recording software to make
your song track-by-track and then we mix it down to a single audio file and then we have
our multimedia specialist put the lyrics on screen with the tracking/timing and then your
CD+G disc is burned.  After we burn your disc, then we put professional graphic labeling
on the top side so your disc looks professional.  Lastly, we ship your disc to you via USPS
Priority Mail.  We keep you updated DAILY via e-mail through each step of the process
as your song is being worked on.  You get a lot for your $300, at least 30-80 hours of work.
HOW DO I PAY (WHAT METHODS DO YOU ACCEPT)?
Our PayPal e-mail address for receiving payments is alan@customkaraokesongs.com.
This is our preferred form of receiving payments and it's obviously the easiest and fastest
and most secure method for both you and us.  Once we agree via e-mail as to what karaoke
song we will create for you, you can either pay us directly from Paypal or we can send you an
invoice on PayPal and you can pay that way on PayPal.  It's that easy.  PayPal is the #1 way
to pay on the internet.  We will not ask for your personal financial information ever.  If you'd
like to pay by mail, we can do that too.  Once we receive your check or money order and the
funds clear, we will begin work on making your custom karaoke song.  If you opt to pay by mail,
just tell us and we'll give you the address for that.
WHAT INFORMATION SHOULD I INCLUDE IN MY INITIAL EMAIL TO YOUR INCOMING
ORDERS MANAGER?
Most of our customers send us a YouTube link of the song they want done, others send
standard MP3 files.  We can do any type of song: album versions, live versions, remixes,
B sides, etc.  Once you've sent us the details about the song you want done, our manager
will reply and coordinate the details with you about paying on PayPal and then once you’ve
paid, we begin the process of making your song and shipping it to you, which again takes
5-14 business days and then the disc is in your hand!  Just think, in 5 to 14 business days,
you can be at your favorite karaoke venue singing the song you've always wanted to sing!
HOW FAST CAN YOU GET ME MY CD+G DISC AFTER I PAY?
We can create the song from scratch and have the disc in your hand via USPS Priority Mail
within 5-14 business days, depending on workload.  14 days is a worst case workload
scenario.  Once you've paid, you will receive daily e-mail updates as to our progress and
estimated time remaining to song completion.
CAN I CONTACT YOU GUYS IN AN ATTEMPT TO LOWER YOUR FEE FOR A NEW SONG?
Since you are paying us for labor to make a song for you and then make Karaoke graphics
for you to read and sing to, we can't negotiate labor.  Remember, we're talking
about a karaoke song version you can't find anywhere else IN THE WORLD made just for
YOU, with every note of drums, bass, guitar, keyboards and possibly other instruments
composed from scratch to match the original version with no vocals made just for you so
YOU can sing it and fulfill your Karaoke dreams.  Our fee for labor is $300 to make an
entire song from scratch and the associated Karaoke graphics.  Our fee is only to
compensate us for our time (labor) involved in making your Karaoke music and graphics.
HOW MUCH DOES THIS SERVICE COST FOR YOU GUYS TO MAKE ME A NEW SONG?
Please keep in mind that we do have to hire a team of musicians each specializing in their own
instrument to make your custom karaoke song replicating each note as it appeared at each
moment in time in the original song so the work is considerable (At least 30 hours and
sometimes up to 80 hours per song depending on length/difficulty) and therefore the fee for
the labor involved in making your song is $300 and must be paid in advance.  Payment is to
be made via PayPal to the PayPal address of alan@customkaraokesongs.com.  Please be
advised that songs over 4:30 in duration will require an additional $100 per minute.  However,
99% of the songs in the world are less than 4:30 in duration so chances are your song will
be the standard $300 fee.
WHAT IS THE FIRST STEP I NEED TO DO TO HAVE MY OWN NEW CUSTOM KARAOKE
SONG MADE?
You contact our incoming orders manager by e-mail at alan@customkaraokesongs.com and
tell him what song title and the artist from which you are interested in having made into
standard Karaoke CD+G format.  E-mails are usually replied to within 24 hours.

I SEE YOU ARE A USA BUSINESS.  I LIVE OUTSIDE THE USA, DOES THAT COST ANYTHING EXTRA?
It depends.  If you want your karaoke song e-mailed to you, there is no extra charge.  If you want a disc or flash drive shipped to you,
that will be an extra $20 US extra to cover international shipping.

MY SONG HAS MORE THAN 5 INSTRUMENTS.  DOES THAT COST ANYTHING EXTRA?
Yes.  E-mail us the YouTube song link or MP3 file and we will analyze the song for free to see how many instruments are involved and
how much extra it would be to replicate all that.
CAN YOU GUYS FIX BROKEN KARAOKE DISCS?  WHAT ARE MODS OR FIXES?
We have a fair amount of experience fixing CD+G discs that won't play or the Karaoke graphics crash on the screen.  The fee for this
service is $50.  If we can't fix your disc, your money is refunded (this is the one scenario where we DO offer refunds) and your disc is
shipped back to you for free.  Due to the intricate nature of the work, we will only do 1 disc repair at a time.  MODS or FIXES are
basically when a customer of ours already has a Karaoke version they sing to but they don't like the music they're singing to.  Only
minor changes are needed to make the song sound better like running filters or redoing the intro so it sounds more authentic or
redoing the guitar solo, changing the graphics on screen so the lyrics are correct.  Basically changing 1 element of the song to make it
more pleasing to the singer.  MODS or FIXES are $50 for labor and you get a disc or flash drive and shipping with that.  All the major
Karaoke manufacturers out there make some really great songs but they do lay some eggs sometimes.  We can fix that.

Karaoke DVD
I DON'T HAVE A KARAOKE PLAYER.  CAN YOU GUYS PUT MY KARAOKE VERSION ONTO A DVD FOR ME TO SING TO?
Absolutely.  DVD players are more readily available everywhere than Karaoke players so we can do either format for you.  If you're
singing this at home, a DVD player is ideal.  If you're going to a Karaoke show to sing this, we recommend a standard Karaoke CD.
WHAT IS THE VALUE IN YOUR SERVICE?
When we create a custom Karaoke version for you, you'd be the only person in the world singing
it plus you can amaze your friends as to how you got your hands on such a rare Karaoke version!
CAN YOU PERSONALIZE THE GRAPHICS ON KARAOKE DISCS AND TRAY INSERT CARDS?
We absolutely can.  Below are some examples we've done for one of our better customers, Scooby Karaoke.  You can supply us with
graphics you want us to use or we'll have some of design team members make graphics at your direction of the subject matter.
WHAT ABOUT YOUR INTERACTIONS WITH CELEBRITIES?
Some celebrities have stepped forward and expressed their gratitude that we have made Karaoke versions of their songs.  Some stars
out there who have recorded some great hits over the years have (unfortunately) not had any Karaoke versions of their great songs
made.  It's great fans like you who step forward and REQUEST that the Karaoke versions be made enable these versions to exist in the
first place.  Even the bigger stars that already have big hits and multiple Karaoke versions are amazed to see some of their rare B sides
in the Karaoke realm.
