A great new development!! Gita in Karaoke format - sneak preview

Dear Gītā lovers!!!


Great news! Finally.. after years of dreaming of it... found a great free software (it's only 5MB to download - pls do download it from http://www.karafun.com/ ) and then try watching this sneak preview of the first 43 verses of Ch 1... you can adjust the sliding controls to change the speed (slower or faster), and even the key - to sing higher or lower

I can't wait to get all 18 chapters done in this long-overdue format!


i'll upload it shortly. 

------------------

UPDATE:  IT'S BEEN DONE!! 

Now you can download it from our new webpage  www.karaokegita.on.to  - the link for downloading the KaraFun software is also given there.  I'd love to hear anyone's feedback on this..

 

the software does not permit individual alphabets to be formatted.. so i could not put in Red slashes after the looong vowels as i normally do, nor could i add in slashes (slashes are used to break syllables in the software, and they are non-displaying).  Neither could i individually format each letter...  So i had to do the only thing possible, that is, converting all looong characters into CAPITAL letters (upper case).

 

soon i'll be uploading a poor resolution video sample.  those who like it may then visite the karaokegita page and download the .kfn file to see it in high resolution.

 

When playing back using the KaraFun software, we can easily speed up / slow down the singing speed, and we can even change the key to match our voice, i.e. sing on a higher or lower scale!  Please try it out!

 

Hare Kṛṣṇa!

 

your humble servant,

in service of śrī guru and śrī gaurāṅga,

 

 

 

dīna

Hare Krishna!

Thanks for these karaoke files. Need help in reducing the text font size - it is way beyond the screen and some text is barely visible on screen. Much appreciate assistance in reducing font size. Thanks in advance.

Hare Krishna!  I played a small part in converting the chapters of the Gita to karaoke format and it was a very inspiring and fruitful exercise.  It's thanks to Dina prabhu who worked very hard in putting it all together for easy download. All you have to do is: 

Download the free KaraFun player from http://www.karafun.com/karaokeplayer

Install it, 

Then download all the Gita Karaoke files:

www.karaokegita1.on.to for the first 6 chapters (with Invocations & Gita Dhyanam)

www.karaokegita2.on.to for the middle 6 chapters

&

www.karaokegita3.on.to for the last 6 chapters (with Gita Mahatmyam).

Hare Krishna!  With much hard labour by Logie Mataji, now all 18 Chapters of the Gita are ready in Karaoke format.   Please find the first 13 chapters already uploaded - you can download them from www.karaokegita.on.to 

Do visit www.karafun.com first to download the free Karaoke player - then visit the site and start downloading the ".kfn" files which have the sound files already embedded.  The first 6 Chapters will be at www.tinyurl.com/karaokegita1 , the middle six chapters at www.tinyurl.com/karaokegita2, and the last six Chapters at www.tinyurl.com/karaokegita3.  As I type this, already the first 13 chapters have been uploaded.  We hope to have all 18 Chapters online, with Invocations, Mahatmyam and Dhyanam very soon, to celebrate Gita Jayanti 2011!   This karaoke version is VERY useful for beginners because we can easily slow down the singing speed - thus encouraging the beginners who cannot read so fast or who are not familiar with the tune.

Gita Chapter 1 part 2 of 2 now being uploaded to www.karaokegita.on.to - done again (at first the file was 7000mB coz i had used a very high resolution background picture, but now i have corrected that, so it is just 770KB)

 

---------------------------

 

This is the second and final part of Ch 1 - verses 44 till the end.  (In future i will try to combine the two parts of Chapter 1 into one .kfn file, but for now, on this current new laptop of mine, i don't have the tool needed to thread the two segments of the edited audio file together, hence i've had to split it into two files.)
