Tell A Friend!  

Name that Tune : remember the old TV show "Name that Tune" - you'll most likely have a lot of fun playing this game/ software that's patterned to mimic the show.


Name That Tune v2.7 more info... 

The opening screen puts out a welcome audio message and guides you to "Configure New Contest".

Select one or two players, enter their names, select their gender, either add audio files or load a play-list as the tunes that will be played during the contest. When we're ready to start the contest - click the "Start" button - the contest will begin (after clicking the "Start The Contest" button/ label on the main screen!

Now what? The tunes (your play-list) will play one by one for 30 seconds. When a contestant wants to "name that tune" they either use the hotkey ("< " for the contestant represented on the left and ">" for the person on the right. Clicking the "Bell image" will also do the same thing which is to display a small screen to enter in the tune name - if correct gives the user one point - if not then just continues on playing the tune to give you another shot. 

Play the contest as long as you want - when you get tired of it - click the "Stop the Contest" button/ label to end the contest.

TIPS & TRICKS:

  • the name of the tune you add to your play-list should only be the song name (i.e. Hound Dog .mp3 instead of 'Elvis - Hound Dog.mp3) cuz this will make it much easier for the players to name the tune.
  • it would be advisable to have 20 to 30 tunes in your list: the software player uses the "shuttle" feature so a file may play more then once during a session. Don't worry about the duration of the files - the software handles the 30 second play via a timer.
  • the app screen must have "the focus" for the hot keys to work.
  • if you want to display the tune name that is playing - click on the "wave" display. Click again to make it invisible.
  • this software is described as "the 60s edition": the only reason being that it displays images (representing the players) dressed in 60s type style. You can play any genre music you want.
  • it's best, or rather much easier, to load a 'play-list' of tunes selected for your contest. We have a 'play-list' maker that allows you to easily make play-lists if you might want it: download (and use freely) from here...
  • this software can easily be customized (i.e. 'the Celtic edition', 'the Country edition', 'the Hip Hop edition'. etc. The customized version could have the images changed to your liking, etc...
