  • Mark's rock band demo

Mark has a rock band that has produced a demo tape in a studio. He would like to create a simple music video to the song, but does not have a camera or editing software. Mark does not know how to edit videos either. He has the demo in Mp3 and avi formats. He also has the lyrics of the song in a word file. He would like to have the video on his mySpace and school home page.

  • Professional music

Mark's friend Joe is so amazed to see Mark's AudioImager video that he wants to try it too. He is not musician and does not own copyrighted songs. However, he knows that he can do his private remixes from his mp3 collection he has bought. His favorite song is Rihanna's Under the umberella.

Idea: Computers have problems of recognizing lyrics when the music is playing. However, there are several services that can recognize the song. There are also several websites that have lyrics available if you know the name of the song.
