WOW! MTU has got to be the best karaoke software company out there! Several months ago I had a conversation with one of the Techs at MTU about a slight issue I was having with a Hoster feature. The problem was solved immediately AND I had a fantastic exchange of ideas and ‘wish list' items being prepared for us ‘end users'. I couldn't believe they were willing to take so much time with a customer. It had the feel of a peer-to-peer level meeting. I never felt like I was being talked down to or that I did not have a genuine need. Let's fast forward to August 2015…. I upgraded to Hoster 5.4 last night… Dreams Come True! I now have a very user friendly and a straightforward functional singer rotation feature. I had a smooth transaction with the Website and flawless download/upgrade. I never get nervous when downloading the updates and upgrades from MTU. These guys really do their homework. This software must go thru some rigorous bench-testing, a mark of high quality, for sure! Thanks MTU!
As A Professional Singer you can pre-create Playlists with a sequences of songs to perform, add music videos or any audio file to play during your break, then more sequence of songs and breaks... for any lenth of your show.
As a professional singer for over 20 years, I cannot get over how Hoster has changed my gigs. I increased my song list over 50 times what I sang a year ago. I now bring half the hardware and have thousands more songs at my finger tips. Walter Morgan

- Last year, right after the release of Hoster 5.35, I made a comment right here on Facebook that I felt that the techs at MTU had made Hoster as perfect as it could ever get, well, I'm happy to say that my vision was obscured and with this release (5.40.01), your techs have hit the "PINNACLE OF PERFECTION". I'm not sure how these innovations are accomplished, but glad they are still coming. Thanks guys for making my job less time consuming while making it even more pleasurable. Dave Heiderscheit
- Hey friends, if you haven't upgraded yet to the new Hoster 540.01 you are missing the boat! The new features make this program the top dog! This is really the cat's meow!!! Kudos to the guys at MTU! WaltR
- KUDDOS TO MTU! I have been a Hoster user for 10 years and couldn't imagine using anything else. I have seen the other hosting softwares that are out there and they aren't as user friendly and they don't look as nice as Hoster. Hoster also has phenomenal customer support! This company actually listens to it's users and makes the changes KJ's want to see. You can run your whole show with ease and never have to worry about anything at all! We loaded our DJ music and music videos into Hoster so we can do it all from one screen. We love the new SongbookDB! We have used it at every show and it has not failed us even once!. Our singers love the fact that they don't have to leave their seat except to get up and sing! If you are a Hoster user, get to know the workings of the software and you will NEVER want to use anything else! If you aren't using it, it is time for you to make the switch to Hoster! Thanks MTU for being AWESOME! Tish Jones-Hicks TNA Karaoke Wake Village, Texas
