What is the .KAR File Extension?

.KAR File Extension Description:

Remember International Associates Ltd created The Keep-It program. The software is used to store snapshots of the system files by creating archives with the KAR file extension. Archives are made up of encoded information to minimize size. Archives with the file extension .kar are used to store snapshots of the files and directories in the system. These snapshots with the KAR file extension allow users to track the files in the system at any given time. Archives with the file extension .kar are created either manually or automatically by using the program's Task Scheduler feature. The Task Scheduler feature allows users to set when the program will create archives containing the files of the program. Archives with the KAR file extension can be opened and browsed by the user. However, the files in the archive cannot be edited if decompressed. Files saved with the file extension .kar can also be restored to the system. Generally, archives with the KAR file extension are meant to store files as they are saved in the system. They can be used to maintain a history of documents and file versions on the system stored in an archive that takes up little space.

The file extension KAR is also attached to MIDI files in the Karaoke format. Karaoke is a pastime wherein people can sing along to their favorite pop tunes. This was often done in karaoke bars. Karaoke uses songs wherein the lead vocal track has been removed or turned down very low. Some songs used for karaoke gave people the option to turn the volume of the lead voice track up again, whereas others only came with the back-up vocals. Karaoke also often used an accompanying video to the song wherein people can view the lyrics of what they are singing.

With the advent of media playing technology, the past-time of karaoke singing has been moved back to the home. There are several karaoke microphones, equipment, and even software currently available to enthusiasts. There is now Karaoke software that allows users to sing Karaoke directly on their computer. Users can select and download pre-processed karaoke songs from online databases.

Tune 1000 Corp. developed files with the KAR file extension to store audio files, which are designed specifically for Karaoke use. Files with the file extension .kar contain MIDI files wherein the lead vocal track has been removed, leaving the instrumental portion and, often, the back-up vocals. Development on the technology behind the KAR file extension has stopped since Tune 1000 Corp. is no longer in operation. The KAR file extension is still the most famous for Karaoke MIDI files that are shared in online databases or resources.
