So, I've had this idea brewing in the back of my head for about a year now:
I work at a karaoke bar part-time, that for a while had weekly RB competitions that I hosted. It made alot of sense, what; with there being a projection screen behind the stage and ample room for drunken RB. They haven't run it for about a year now (after a drop in numbers during the summer [people that go to university in Victoria never stay for the summer]), and I've had some people trying to push to get RB nights started up again.
Now, some of the people are interested in playing Rock Band, and some of them just want the option to be able to sing most of the songs in Rock Band, because as alot of us hopefully know, karaoke tracks are garbage in comparison to singing along to the original recording, and not all karaoke bars have a great song selection for rock.
So my idea is this: If I record an audio track from vocal practice mode, and then lay that on top of a video of vocal quick-play, would it be a good substitute? I'm worried about the problem of the score bar dwindling, not having pitch recognition, words turning red, etc. Secondarily, I'm also worried about the legality of playing a video of Rock Band in an establishment. I think that would be less of an issue.
Any ideas? Performance mode is an option, but I'm fairly sure that means there wouldn't be words on the screen, which somewhat defeats the purpose of karaoke.
