Offer to musicians
Script Software today announced an open invitation to all musicians and music publishers to begin adding synchronized lyrics to every song they create, using . The software embeds synchronized lyrics into any song, which can display sequentially in iTunes as well as on iPod displays. Star Composer can be used to edit and display lyrics, opera, plays, musicals, karaoke, and more. "It won't be long before downloadable music will be judged not just on the song's quality but also on what is included, such as synchronized lyrics or other multimedia," said Julian Miller, CEO of Script Software. iStar Composer is $30, and requires Mac OS X 10.4, as well as QuickTime 7.0.3.
