Phantom City Studio Karaoke FAQ:
Q: What is karaoke?
A: Karaoke is singing with a pre-existing song, where you replace the original lead singer.
Karaoke songs or Cover songs are reproduced to sound like the original song, but
without lead vocals. Karaoke songs are rarely produced by the original artist or recording
studio. They are usually recreated by independent karaoke manufacturers. Most of these
manufacturers use professional musicians and singers to produce the likeness of the
original song. Karaoke songs may include some vocals. If the original song contains any
background vocals (i.e. chorus, harmonies, back-up singers, etc), then the karaoke
versions will usually contain them as well. Karaoke songs are similar to cover songs.
Cover songs use the original instrumental or background music without the vocals. At
Phantom City Studio you can record cover songs of your favorite artists. If you hear the
song on any website and it is the instrumental or karaoke version, rest assured that we
can provide that same background for you to add your voice.
