How to combine an MP3 and CDG
Combining MP3 and CDG files allows you to burn a single file onto disc for use with most karaoke devices. (Justin Sullivan/Getty Images News/Getty Images)

Karaoke tracks use two different file formats merged together to provide both audio and video playback. The video playback (usually in the form of the song lyrics onscreen) is the CDG file, while the audio playback comes from the MP3 file. The two files can be converted together into singular BIN files which can then be burned to disc and used with a wide range of karaoke devices.

    Karaoke CD+G Creator

  1. 1

    Download the Karaoke CD+G Creator software from the Power Karaoke website (see Resources) to your desktop or laptop. You can either purchase the full version of the software or download a free trial version.

  2. 2

    Install Karaoke CD+G Creator and open the program.

  3. 3

    Select "MP3/WAV + CDG > BIN" from the toolbox menu. This will open a dialogue box allowing you to "CREATE BIN." The BIN file will be the merged version of both the MP3 and CDG files which you can later burn to disc.

  4. 4

    Add your CDG files using the "Add" button. You do not need to select the corresponding MP3 files as Karaoke CD+G Creator will select and merge them automatically from the directory.

  5. 5

    Choose the output directory where you wish the combined files to be saved and hit "OK." The files will now be merged into a single BIN format and saved in the specified location.
