Chartbuster and Sound Choice Karaoke Registrations
Those that use Chartbuster and or Sound Choice Karaoke discs need to take notice of the following information.
However, PEP don’t allow you to rip the karaoke discs and store them on your hard-drive without registering them first. Generally speaking, ripping the discs to MP3+G and storing on a hard-drive is media-shifting. It is this media-shifting that could pose a problem for some people who are indeed out of the loop. Ignorance is no defence apparently, so failing to register means nothing to them. They will still come after you.
Think Before You Rip.
All in all, here at the Karaoke Shack, we appreciate original karaoke discs. In brief, our “about us” page shows this. Retired KJ’s make up our staff here and we also only ever worked with the original karaoke discs. However, carrying lots of karaoke discs is heavy. Also, they can damage easily without proper care. But, you do get the full frequency from them. In fact, the dynamics are amazing and much better that any other method of karaoke.
We have heard systems that were computerised and the music is terrible compared to the disc based systems. If you have the best quality karaoke equipment and use MP3+G from a hard-drive then that is a terrible mix! In fact, you will never hear the music as it should be. So, with this in mind, cheap equipment would do that job just fine.
The Karaoke Shack will always promote the original karaoke discs because of this. If you are passionate about your karaoke sound and are using a laptop based system, move back to disc based systems for an altogether better sound.
To Sum Up
All in all, we do hope that we have explained the Chartbuster and Sound Choice Karaoke Registration requirements. Indeed, those people who fail to register their Chartbuster or Sound Choice discs risk prosecution. Subsequently, this could lead to them losing their business and livelihood! Now is the ideal time to either register with PEP or shift back to using a disc based system. However annoying this information might appear, you will need to act now to safeguard yourself. Of course, whatever you do is entirely your choice, the Karaoke Shack is just the messenger.
