Timeshifting is still a bit buggy and troublesome in Soramimi Karaoke, but here goes:

  • Play your song by hitting play on the music player.

You can change the amount by moving the slider around, so the steps you shift can be shorter or longer.

When you think you're done, hit "Apply".

  • Click on the TextEditor. You'll see that the timecodes will change.
  • Save your lyrics

Note: When you click on a bit other than the TimeShifter, the TimeShifter will close and anything you shifted.
