There is a reader asking about how to create the Lyrics and uploaded to Kuwo. The following is the simple step how to create a lyrics file and how to upload it to Kuwo.
Before we start create the lyrics file, let’s understand what actually the lyrics file is. Lyrics file with the extension of .lrc is files that allow the music player to load it and display it when we play the song, in the file itself, it contains some music related information such as Artist name, song title, album title, lyrics and also the time.
To create a lyrics file, just following the following simple step:
- Open a blank text file using any text editor such as Notepad or TED Notepad
- Add the song title. Put it between square brackets and add the letters “ti:” before it. A song called “Song” would have the first line looking like: [ti:Song] Spaces may be used; for instance, a song named “A Song” would look like: [ti:A Song]
- Add the name of the artist. Also put it between square brackets, but this time add the letters “ar:” just before it. An artist named “Artist” would have a tag look like: [ar:Artist] Like songs, spaces may be used.
- Add the name of the album. It doesn’t have to be the song’s original album. It should have the letters before it be “al:” and therefore an album named “Album” would look like: [al:Album]
- Add any other information. This includes the name of the file’s creator(you) as [by:You] where “You” would be your name and the name of the composer as [au:Author] . Some players can’t read this information, though.
- Add the lyrics and timestamp. Timestamps tell when to display the lyrics. It should have the minutes, seconds and hundredths of a second, followed by the lyrics. Something like: [01:26.03]Lyric (where 01 indicates the minute in which the lyric is shown, 26 indicates the number of seconds and 03 the number of hundredths of a second, though you could leave this blank if precision is not your thing…) It is ideal to play the song while doing this, and probably pause it as the lyrics come on to get the time-info.
- Save as an *.LRC file. To do this, click on “File” and select “Save As”. There, name the file after the title of your song, (you may need to include the track number) select “All Files” from the drop-down menu just under that and change the default “.txt” to “.lrc” Be sure to make the name the exact same as the music file it corresponds to, but ending with “.lrc”. Then load those two files onto your lyric compatible mp3 player.
- Enjoy! After all that tedious work in Step 6 above, you must be tired! Why not do a little dance, have a drink of water, or, better yet, sing the song to celebrate?
The sample lyrics will look like the following
