I thought I'd take this opportunity to thank you SO MUCH for being conscientious enough NOT to foist off on us one of the many browser add-ons or interminable toolbars that are attached to so many popular software installations these days. In a world that is becoming more and more cluttered with these "hidden-ware" and "bloatware" hitchhikers, Latshaw/Karaosoft stands out as one of the software house that doesn't participate in this obnoxious practice. I salute you!
...and let me just add that I love the software...I was a customer of MTU-Hoster forever and switched in April to Karma. Thanks again.

I'm very impressed with your products so far. Very efficient programming (as
a programmer I appreciate that). The three apps have already saved me weeks of work.
Putnam Valley, New York
Thank you for an awesome set of tools. Over the holidays I cleaned up my library,
printed new books, and synched up drives across rigs, all with your tools. Literally
saved me DAYS of work.
Feel Good Productions
This software just literally saved me about a month of typing!
Strictly Fun, Inc.
I so love your software, I bought the whole three. You are so clever. Thank
Rock Hard Entertainment Pty Ltd.
You folks are amazing. I research the web every few months (out of curiosity),
and I can tell you that there is nothing on earth "as good" let alone "better" than
each and all of your apps for the karaoke jockey. God bless you, and thank you.
Very nice intuitive software - even my non-computer literate husband figured
out how to use the software without reading the help file!! That is saying a lot!
Powerful and easy to use, I like it....
Downloaded the newest version of Karma and needed to say...YOU GUYS ROCK!!!
I have used so many different players for Dj and Karaoke. Karma is the best system
period. It's as if you went into the heads of all Kj's and picked the best way to
just get the job done....Thank You
You guys are fantastic. I have never been more satisfied with any program, Karma
is the best and your support is unbelievable. Thank you so much.
Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio
I just wanted to say that is one awesome piece of software. It's like the holy
grail of karaoke file management.
John Alexander, Eclipse Entertainers
..and I LOVE YOUR PROGRAM..!!! I used it tonight for the first time and it was
amazing..easy and fun...
Port Saint Lucie, Florida
One of the best things about Karma is we haven't had the need to contact anyone
for technical support. The software is very user friendly and just about anyone
can operate it after watching for a few minutes. We use ours for private functions,
but have recommended it to a new coffee house in area. We don't miss the crashes,
freezing and other issues we had with our last software that was engineered for
DJ's and adapted to karaoke!
Steve and Tina Piccone
Thank you very much for being so understanding and helpful! I can't say enough
about how happy I am with your products, your tech support and your personal and
prompt replies to requests! I know your company is going to be very successful(as
it probably is already) but I hope you never lose that 'small' business feel. It's
The package rocks. I've used several different Karaoke packages over the years
and yours is the best layout. It takes me five minutes or so to train someone on

Just wanted to say that your software is by far the best for Karaoke Management
that I have seen in my career of PC-Based Hosting! I will and have recommended your
products to all of my associate DJ's in my area! Keep up the good work!
Christopher Means, TaTERWuLF Entertainment Group

I decided to try something with more features and having a rotation and history
is very important. Well Done!! I am totally impressed and completely pleased with
your product! Thanks for you contribution to this industry!
Dave "DC" Meredith, DC Productions
Thank you... For producing the best and easiest Karaoke software on the market.
I have just spent a hell fortnight comparing other products and then I found yours.
My mind is made up. Karma is the best.

Great updates, great product.....keep it up, I appreciate your work.
Black Tie Entertainment

So very cool! Besides bringing my KJ Presentation to a new level - you keep
raising the bar - this makes your system a real bargain.
Great software all around!

Hi, just wanted to say, I’m really loving your software. It’s easy to use, fast,
and people are amazed that I remember what exact songs they sang from the previous
week. You really have created a great product.
Sound Extreme Entertainment

I have just started to use a laptop system from the old disc systems, and must
say your product was by far the best I evaluated. I went live last week and our
singers were very happy with the results. Congratulations on a superb set of products.
Mike Yates, Crown Karaoke

I've used several PC karaoke programs in the past and by far, Karma is the best.
I anticipate each update due to additional features and bug fixes as needed. Thank
you for such a dependable and trusted product.

Fantastic software, excellent technical help and genuinely nice people. Best
money we've ever spent!!
Hi just downloaded the new karma. I have to say i been using it for a while
now. It is very good. This new one is great. Please pass on this message that for
karaoke this is a work of art well done.

First I would like to say how much I enjoy using Karma for hosting my shows.
Setup was extremely easy and ease of operation is wonderful. Updating the database
is very quick and the being able to pick a different version of the song playing
on-the-fly is GREAT! Keep up the great work!
William Mapp, 4M Karaoke
Thanks much! Your File Manager and Song List Generator are absolutely fantastic.
It's a great way to keep organized and consistant. And the FREE song request slips
(with my business logo) is an added plus!
I purchased two licenses for Karma yesterday. Loved the software, used it live
last night at both karaoke shows and was very pleased. Karma is now my choice for
all my karaoke shows.
Rick Good, Sounds Good! Mobile Entertainment
Raleigh, North Carolina
Several of our friends have karaoke in their homes but they all prefer to come
to our house to do their thing. Karma makes it all go better.
Above all I want to congratulate them for the Karma Karaoke Management. It is
a simple but effective sofware! It is evident that you have much "common sense".
My family and I thank it to you because we like to sing karaoke.
I have several thousand zip files to edit and your software is hands down the
best I looked at.
Fort Pierce, Florida
I am very pleased with your software. People in my karaoke shows tell me that
your software is up to the next level. I am very pleased with the simplicity of
its function. Also one point that is very important...Before, I had people write
their songs and names on a post-it which cost me around 25$ a year or more. With
your software, people come to me and their name is already in list...just add a
song + the pitch and it's set to go. Thanks to genious like you...karaoke is now
simple and fun to manage...no more rush and little post-it getting lost somewhere
on the floor...no more panic situations.
Valcourt, Québec, Canada
I am impressed. Your product is the best...I am glad I did a search for a songlist
generator and your products came up. I recently added 25,000 karaoke .kma files
to my library and you have saved me over $25.00 each in costs in making new books...Just
think less the three new books alone payed for your product. Keep the good work
Selections Pro DJ/KJ Services
Wow! A response on a holiday weekend within 30 minutes. I am impressed! I have
been recommending this software to fellow KJs in the Dallas area, and this is another
example of your impressive service to go with great software.
I have used every type of karaoke software available and ALL of your products
do something that no one else even thought of! You guys are absolutely the greatest
innovators in karaoke software that I have ever encountered, and I mean that from
Your Song List Generator is nothing short of fantastic! The concept of not having
to download any lists, and being able to create a songbook simply from the karaoke
files on my computer is brilliant. The great looking, customizable books, the ease
of use, and the level of customer support received, has made this our best karaoke
purchase in years.

Latshaw Systems is destined for even larger greatness than they have already
achieved! I have the distinct and absolute priviledge of having a close relationship
with both Bob and his company and have been a loyal customer and fan of his "out
of the box" thinking in solving a myriad of my DJ, Karaoke and even Live Band software
applications. Karma is a stroke of genius and just one of the milestones in Latshaw
Systems' steady trek to immortality.
Pro-Show Karaoke & DJ Shows / Lead Singer of "Joey & the Jammers"
I just want to take a minute and let those at Latshaw Systems know how proud
I am to use your program. I have been using the program for less than a month and
have already received two updates that made it even better than it was when I purchased
it. Thank you for the continued effort to give your customers the best product for
our money. It's a pleasure to be a customer of Latshaw Systems.
I began using your programs when I found KJ File Manager and was impressed with
it, especially the support. I decided to use Karma at the beta stage with promises
of upgrades to the program. The promises have been met and surpassed and I never
had an interruption in a show due to the program crashing. Any problem I have found
has been dealt with within a couple of days. Every kj that I have introduced Karma
to was blown away by the ease of use. Bob you have such a knack for writing software
for the kj,s you should be proud of what you accomplished.
The best software purchases I have made in years.
Billy Goat Karaoke
You should get the Software Developer of the Year award - if there was one.
Amazing product, sure, but your agility in the ongoing development is nothing short
of astounding. Terrific application, great job.
I wanted to take this opportunity to thank you for the many products that have
saved me many hours and headaches. I own Song List Generator, and Karma. Both products
are amazing. SLG saved me literally weeks, I remember going through thousands of
files, trying to delete multiples through Excel. Karma is everything I've ever wanted,
and it has the best support ever. Thank you so much for all your products. I will
be a continuing customer the rest of my KJ career.
British Columbia, Canada
Can I just say Karma is the best programme for karaoke on the market today,
it absolutely rocks, it is simply a joy to use, you guys have thought of everything.
Kirkby Lonsdale, United Kingdom
I just wanted to check in and thank you for creating a great product. Managing
a song list that contains over 16,000 titles was a difficult task. One day, we came
across a KJ that had a great set of songs books. I spotted the name on the page
footer, purchased the product, and never looked back. Thanks again for creating
a great product that helps me and my family supplement our income during a tough

Let me say I am very pleased with your software programs. They blow away everything
that is in the market today. Great Job.

Your product is by far the easiest to use that I have come across and does everything
it says it will - brilliant!
Thanks for all your staff has done. I appreciate that, and as always your products
have saved my butt hours and hours.

Merci infiniment... c'est très apprécié !

Thanks for the quick response. Your software is amazing and so is the customer
support. I have a big gig tonight and was afraid that I wouldn't be able to print
updated books. You guys rock.
Brooklyn, New York
I purchased KJ File Manager and Song List Generator in March 2006. I had heard
what great products they were. "Great" is such an understatement. My music library
was well over 100k titles and renaming them was a nightmare until I bought these
products. I am positive that I have saved myself 95% of the time it would have taken
me to do it the traditional way. Now that all of my music is named in a format that
I prefer, maintaining my music library is a breeze. As for creating my songbooks..well
lets just say that it's so easy, even a caveman can do it. Thanks so much Bob for
these super easy, extremely affordable and time saving products. U Da Man!!
Bo & Dena Ganzermiller
I purchased KFM and SLG two weeks ago. First I have to say that these programs
are absolutely fantastic! I save a lot of time in managing my titles and creating
Stefans Karaoke, Germany
Excellent Tool. We used to do a renamer product ourselves but what is the point
in using programming time when Latshaw Systems already have it done and dusted.
Paul (Sax) Halse
S & D Software, United Kingdom
I had a daunting task of sorting out almost 25,000 files that were in total
confusion. Took me almost three months. It was after words, wouldn't you know, that
I found KJ Manager. OMG! What a difference. Not only did it cut the time needed
by a fraction, it also found hundreds of mistakes I'd made and corrected them in
about three mouse clicks. This program is a "must have" for anyone working with
karaoke files. 'Ya just plain gotta have it.
Fort Meyers, Florida
Damn, what a program (KJ File Manager). I am so very impressed with this program
and all it does. I have about 178,000 plus files and now will be able to get it
all properly organized and "looking" good due to this program.
KJ File Manager is light-years ahead of anything else. This program does everything
I need and then some. Song List Generator is also outstanding. Forget all the other
apps where you have to input databases from outside sources. This gem just looks
at what you own and then pumps out a songbook quicker than anything. I can't recommend
these products enough. If you have your own Karaoke/DJ business, you're losing valuable
time without theses programs.
Flipside Productions L.L.C.
I have 120k songs, so, any kind of manual editing is onerous and nearly impossible.
This software makes it so much easier. Absolutely INDISPENSABLE tools for the computerized

I really just wanted to thank you for a great product. I have been looking for
an easy way to create a book for about 2 years now. I didn't like any of the others
that I tried. Yours is perfect....super easy to use...lots of format options. Good
Superior Sounds DJ and KJ Service
Mechanicville, New York
I have just upgraded to your latest releases on both KJ File Manager and Song
List Generator, having been using your software for some time - by far the best
value for money on anything I have had to purchase in relation to Karaoke.
Please keep up your excellent and well appreciated hard work.
Martin Critchley aka MC LEE
I know I can't say this enough... your software is truly amazing! It's
designed with features that hit the bullseye with what users want. ...Extremely
I wish I had heard of this program before I typed up my old karaoke books manually
using Excel. This makes the presentation and feel of the book much more profesional
looking and allows easy song searching for any user. Many thanks. The program
worked brilliantly... Best program ever made.
Your stuff is the "bomb" if I may say! I can't say enough about the time they
have saved me. If anyone has 133,365 cdg+g files like I have and they don't have
your programs, that is their loss. The best money I have spent since doing karaoke
shows in the past year. The ease of correcting the "conventional naming" requirements
of various programs for cdg+mp3 (Zip files) playback on a desktop PC using your
programs is above reproach! I want to kick myself in the butt every time I do file
corrections for not knowing about your programs sooner. Keep up the good work! I
have not encountered any of the problems that cause you to make updates, but keep
the updates coming! I am not the type to read "user notes" as I am a "WYSIWYG" type
and your programs are more than "user friendly!" Once again, thank you for programs
that really work!
JAM Video Production
I love this program(KJ File Manager). Great value for the money.
Virginia Beach, Virginia
just wanted to say THANK YOU..... I'm very impressed with your product(KJ
File Manager) its exactly what I need It saved me many many hours. Your program
is the BEST I have found.
KJ File Manager is FANTASTIC! Try to rename 8000 mp3+g without it!! KJ File
Manager is your best friend when working with your karaoke files. It has saved me
hundreds of hours. Its fast, stable, functional and easy. KJ File Manager is worth
every coin. I also bought Song List Generator. Again.. Just fantastic!! The people
at Latshaw Systems really understand what the people wants. They understand that
people have custom files, and that we dont want to add these one by one. Especially
if we have hundreds of them. Latshaws Song List Generator does the job in ten seconds.
THANX! Latshaw system really saved my d...month!
I want to thank you for putting out great products, upgrading those products
as needed, and for the way-above-and-beyond customer service. You are fully tuned
in to the needs and wants of todays computer-based KJ. Thank you.
Jeffrey 'Smitty' Smith
I have never seen a songlist generator that was as fast or easy to use. Who
needs an instruction manual? Certainly not your program. Simple, simple, simple.
Thanks for a great program.
I just wanted to say THANK YOU.....I'm absolutely thrilled to death with this....I
am finally getting all of my files organized and it has been a breeze. I'm going
to tell ALL of my karaoke friends about KJ File Manager.
A customer of yours and fellow KJ had the opportunity to run the new version
on a "very large" data base and it functioned flawlessly. He was very impressed.
I can't wait to get the time to re-run mine. Great Job! Thanks for giving value
for the dollars I spend on utility software.
Goose Creek, South Carolina
What an amazing product! Thanks for finally cutting my time spent building books
to about a quarter of the time and less than half the cost to do them. I will be
a long time proponent of this truly outstanding product!
Eric Osterhout, Chief Entertainment Officer
BlackDog Productions, Waller, Texas
Your program is very awesome awesome. . . I'm promoting it in all the
CDG karaoke channels. . . .its exactly what I need. Thank you so much...
Candace Armenti, Digital DJ Karaoke
Welland, Ontario, Canada
I'm very impressed with your product. I want you to know that I'll not be sending
my wife flowers on her birthday just so I can have this. Few things in life strike
me as that necessary.
For making books of MP3+Gs on a hard drive, Song List Generator is by far the
best and easiest to use songbook maker out there.....(easy! with a capital E!) I
love your product!
I have over 17,000 tracks and up to now printing books, a necessary evil, was
extremely difficult and complex.. Mine wear out in a matter of months doing an average
of 5 shows weekly. Now even my weekly updates are easily handled with Song
List Generator! No more tagging full discs when you only have partials, adding
one song at a time , Etc... No more embarrassing explanations why the song
is listed and you don't have it. FINALLY a program that works great, quick and dependable
at an affordable price..A truly successful product. Thank You Much!

I used KJ File Manager for the first time today. It is an extremely intuitive
product. It saved me many many hours of aggrevation.
St. Charles, Illinois
Your programs are great! I don't know ANY Computerized DJ/KJ types that wouldn't
benefit from your work. You are the rare person that still believes in good
customer service. Everytime I have contacted you for support, you not only
got back to me, you responded in a prompt fashion. I deal with dozens of karaoke
related companies and don't find quality, good old fashioned customer service very
often. You can bet I'll be tooting your horn everytime I get a chance.
Thanks for all you do...
Richard Watkins, R&P Karaoke
Summerville, South Carolina
I have been a DJ/KJ for over 1 year now and have hunted high and low for programs
just like this. The prices of other programs were too expensive for me.
Your programs are the BEST I have found. Keep up the good work.
