How do I convert KAR to MP3?


KAR is a MIDI Karaoke file format. KAR files usually contain MIDI music plus synchronized lyrics (texts). Like MIDI files, KAR files are small, but they greatly depend on the sound card capabilities. They sound differently on different systems, and most of devices do not support them at all.

If you want your KAR files to produce high quality sound on every system, you may consider converting KAR to MP3. MP3 files are larger, but they always sound the same and are widely supported by all kinds of software and hardware.

We will discuss how to convert KAR to MP3 using MIDI Converter Studio. This program allows creating quality sound even on systems with a poor sound card by using SoundFonts.
