Basic version of Karaoke CD+G Creator offers basic duet support. It changes text settings using predefined duet styles to visualize the change of the singer. For more information please see section Using duet events.
Pro version allows to create professional parallel duets. The most important features are:
Duet Wizard that helps to assign lyrics to singers
Full duet synchronization mode
Divided CD+G screen for duets (Singer 1 at top and Singer 2 at the bottom of the screen) with separate settings for each of the singers
Please note that in tutorials section you will find Create song with duets tutorial.
In duet mode Karaoke CD+G Creator divides the song in three modes: parts that are to be sung by Singer 1, those to be sung by Singer 2, and parts of the song sung together by both singers.
Parts sung by both singers are displayed in the same manner as the lyrics in non-duets song. But when Karaoke CD+G Creator finds duet part, it divides the screen into two parts and displays lyrics for singer 1 at the top, and lyrics for singer 2 at the bottom (see image above).
To enable duets in Karaoke CD+G Creator use Full duet mode toolbar button () or select Enable full duet mode from synchronization menu.
If you do not wish to split the screen between two singers and rather have words for both singers displayed one after another, disable Full duet mode before creating CD+G file (it must be enabled in the synchronization mode). Also the lyrics for both singers should interleave -- they need to be in the same order as they should be displayed (so in general this will be like duets in PowerKaraoke, but with concurrent highlighting.

Full duet mode can be used to create song in two languages.
