iStar Composer 1.0 – Create Synchronized Lryics for Songs in iTunes and on
the iPod

Kapaa, Hawaii, December 6, 2005 — Script Software (
announced today the release of iStar Composer. iStar Composer is an
original and major new application that allows anyone to synchronize lyrics
with downloadable music and then to export these synchronized lyrics for
viewing in iTunes and on the iPod. Know someone who loves their music? Give
them the best and most unique iPod gift this holiday season, iStar Composer.

Downloadable music is very convenient but it is missing one very important
thing and that is LYRICS! In the 60’s and 70’s on the back of the record
albums were the lyrics to the songs. In the 80’s and 90’s CD’s had lyrics
in the inserts. Amazingly, downloadable music does not have lyrics. This
loss is remedied by iStar Composer an original application that doesn’t
just add lyrics but makes synchronized lyrics available on the Mac, in
iTunes and on the iPod.

iStar Composer is a program designed to take any digital song (mp3 or aac,
created or bought in the iTunes store) find its lyrics then synchronize the
music with the lyrics. Julian Miller, CEO of Script Software said, “We had
to invent for iStar Composer some very original tools and techniques to
line up the lyrics with the music. These tools make it easy to quickly add
synchronized lyrics for any kind of song you own.” iStar Composer can be
used for editing and displaying lyrics, opera, karaoke, jokeoke (where
people imitate a robin williams or another comedy routine), poetryoke
(poems done to music), children’s stories or children music, translation of
text or lyrics, display of text for any audio track. And it is fun almost
like playing a video game.

The best part is that you can go up to the file menu and choose ‘Send to
iTunes.’ then your synched song and lyrics are exported as a new file to
iTunes. In iTunes you will find and can choose the new iStar Composer
playlist to see and play all your exported songs. Choose a song and in
iTunes watch the synched lyrics in the bottom left corner where the cover
art usually is and listen to the song. Now move the file to your iPod by
clicking, update iPod in iTunes, and you can then watch it on your iPod. It
works on the video iPod beautifully and also on the other color iPods.

iStar Composer is available immediately for $30 but the price will go up in
the near future.


iStar Composer is an original and major new application that creates
synchronized lyrics on the Mac to export to the iPod and iTunes. iStar
Composer finds lyrics, but more importantly allows you to synch them to a
song. Composer then allows you to export this new composition to a new
music file (AAC) that contains embedded lyrics that play/display in iTunes
and on the iPod. By displaying the lyrics iStar Composer adds a new
dimension to the iPod and iTunes. People will not just be looking at the
song and title in iTunes and their iPod but can now enjoy reading or
singing along with them too.
