Grinta Karaoke support page


To play MIDI files, iPad must be connected to an external sound module, like Mixlight or X-Light by M-Live, via the Camera Connection Kit and a USB cable (see picture).
MP3 and MP3+G files can be both played directly from iPad or using a compatible external sound module.

Starting with version 2.0 of Grinta Karaoke, the iPad's auxiliary video output has been enabled to allow you to display the Karaoke lyrics on an external display. To do this, simply connect the Apple Composite AV Cable (or a compatible third-party accessory) to the dock connector port and use a TV screen with composite inputs.

NOTE: using this configuration, it will no longer be possible to use an external sound module for sound generation.
