UltraStar Deluxe is a FREE OpenSource karaoke game for your PC. The gameplay experience is similar to that of commercial product SingStar™ by Sony Computer Entertainment, which is exclusively available for the Playstation®. Unlike SingStar™, however, UltraStar Deluxe allows users to create their own songs. By publishing the sourcecode, the designers have enabled you to customize the game completely to your heart’s content, desires and particular needs.

UltraStar Deluxe is a clone of SingStar, a music video game. UltraStar Deluxe lets one or several players score points by singing along to a song or music video and match the pitch of the original song well. It displays lyrics as well as the correct notes similar to a piano roll. On top of the correct notes UltraStar displays the pitch recorded from the players. UltraStar Deluxe allows several people to play simultaneously by connecting several microphones possibly to several sound cards. To add a song to UltraStar Deluxe, a file with notes and lyrics is required, together with an audio file. Optionally a cover image, a backdrop image and a video may be added to each song. UltraStar Deluxe comes preloaded with a short sample from Nine Inch Nails hit Discipline from The Slip album.

Create your own themes or download content from the community, such as plugins, free songs or code patches for extended features.

In party mode it allows up to twelve players to sing along to your favorite music in order to score points, depending on the pitch of the voice and the rhythm of singing.

For UltraStar Deluxe to work you do not even have to buy expensive DVDs with not so many songs you really like, instead just buy DRM free audio files or use your album/cd music you already own and stored on your personal computer.

Just try out. Completely free with more than 10.000+ songs already available.
