Using the "External Lyrics Source" Feature
[Previous] [Main] [Next]

The External Lyrics Source feature has been included to allow the use of a CD+G Disc Player in conjunction with CompuHost. This allows for the video lyrics display from any external source to be routed through CompuHost and displayed onscreen while at the same time, continuing to display the "Scrolling Rotation" (VRS) on the Performer's (Auxiliary) Screen.

To utilize this feature, a WDM compatible Video Capture Device must be available/installed in the Computer.
