Q: What does Guide Vocals mean?
A: Tracks listed with Guide Vocals are karaoke songs that also offer lead and backing vocals. The lead vocals on these tracks can be turned on or off as required.

NB: The term Guide vocals should not be confused with Guide Lyrics a feature that is available on ALL the karaoke tracks.

Q: How can I get song track updates for the player?
A: We publish updated song track library DVDs about every 8 or 9 months. The last update published in July added an additional 2,000 song tracks to the library – 500 English. In addition to updated central library discs, the player will also play CD+G discs and new titles are being released all the time.

The MDVD-688 update central library discs usually retail at about $150 and come with new inserts for the Hard Copy Song Book. Upon release all existing owners of player will be notified by email that a new update is available and how, if required, they can purchase the new library disc.

Q: What is the quality of the song tracks like?
A: On our Track Demo page, we have tried to show typical examples of the quality of the song tracks you can expect from the inbuilt song tracks.  It should be noted that all tracks are in the style of the original recording artist and are NOT by the original artist.


As you will appreciate the player offers an enormous number of tracks (53,000 at the last count) and the quality does vary across them. As a general rule the song tracks with Guide Vocals are of the highest quality and compare very favorable with the professional CD+G tracks available from the likes of Sunfly etc.


We continually strive to improve the quality of the song tracks by adding additional Guide Vocal tracks and publishing library update discs two or three times per year.

Q:Does the player come with a Microphone?

A: The Standard Edition does not come with a microphone. If you're looking for microphones, we suggest going for the Deluxe Edition.

These microphones retail at US$29.95 each and they come with a 4 metre long shielded cable. We have even included a FREE carry-case for your 2 microphones. Order now while stocks last.

Q: Can the Song Library Disc be purchased separately?

A: In order to utilise the machine's library disc you must have The SongStation's MDVD-688 player. The discs can not be read by any other Karaoke Machine.

For The SongStation player users update and replacement library discs can be supplied as required.

Q: What Video Backgrounds are available?

A: The machine is supplied as standard with two Song Library discs - L5& L6. Each disc is slightly different in the song tracks they offer. The L6 disc contains more songs. The only main difference being that the L5 disc offers MTV style background video, with the L6 disc delivering more traditional Landscape style video.

The video that plays is on a 30 to 40 minute loop and plays independently in the background of any song being played. Where a User prefers not to utilise a background video a special burn version of the song library disc (L8) is available that will show a static black background (a common format prevalent with CD+G discs). Please contact us for further details and pricing.

A: Yes. We ship internationally to any destination worldwide for the flat rate shipping fee. We also offer Fedex Overnight delivery to any destination. Just remember to add it to your order before proceeding to checkout. All shipments are 100% insured up to $1000 with detailed online tracking.

Q: How are the Chinese Song Track lyrics displayed?
A: The Chinese track lyrics by default are displayed in mainland Traditional Chinese, however one of the unique features of this player is that, as an option,  you can also view the Chinese lyrics as romanised pinying characters. The tracks listed in the associated Song Book are presented in Simplified Chinese.

Q: What payment methods do you accept?

A: Our preferred method of payment is via Credit Card through the Paypal online credit card processing system. PayPal’s credit card processing system is by far the most secure online payment mechanism on the web and offers for both the buyer and seller unrivalled credit card fraud protection.

It should be noted that, contrary to popular belief, in order to use this system you do not have to create, or already have an existing, PayPal account. You can of course pay via cheque if desired.

If you're unable to pay via PayPal for some reason or another, we also provide the option of paying via 2CO. (2CheckOut is a credit/debit card processor)
