UltraStar (DX) and Performous have no implementation of Duet mode yet. Duet mode was added in a "semi-unofficial" USDX fork, the "Challenge Mod", but is still quite hackish.
Currently, the Duet file format is as follow :
While this allows for some backward-compatibilities with builds not supporting Duet mode, it has notable limitations:
I'm currently building a song pack for USDX (not the Challenge Mod yet, as I have yet to build a Linux version of it) and am considering making a Duet for 6 singers. The song I'm working on features 6 independent lead singers, and a backing vocals track.
I'd like to obtain this behavior:
This is currently not possible with the Duet file format used in USDX-Mod.
Since one of the many focuses of Vocaluxe is to support Duet mode by default, I'd like to have a clarification on the file format it will use (I'm assuming it's using the current USDX-Mod one), and if there are plans to expand it for such cases. Thanks.
It is definitly plannend to work on duet-mode - But our time is very limited at this moment.
"P1" and "P2" can not be given specific track names (ie. "P1 = Lead vocalist / P2 = Backing vocals", "P1 = Joe / = Jane", etc)
This is one of the things we have to add.
P1 and P2 can not chose which track they want to sing, they have to physically switch microphones
Yes, another thing we have to do...
There's no fall-back to a 1-player mode, if only 1 person is playing and wishes to sing the song in its entirety (have to load another file for that)
At this moment, Vocaluxe let this player than sing the part of P1. Don't know what the CMD-Edtiton do(, but I think, there was an error?)
I think it would not be hard to implement more different players, but in my opinion more than 4 different isn't possible. You have to think of the needed lyrics-bars - One for each voice!
The easiest way would be to create different text-files and than to have the choice in vocaluxe. There was already a request in the german-board, to put different versions of one song together to one entry in song-view (e.g. karaoke-version, normal, duett etc.)
