A different kind of shape changing intensity redistribution collision with potential application to signal
amplification is identified in the integrable N-coupled nonlinear Schr÷dinger CNLS equations with mixed
signs of focusing- and defocusing-type nonlinearity coefficients. The corresponding soliton solutions for the
N=2 case are obtained by using Hirota's bilinearization method. The distinguishing feature of the mixed sign
CNLS equations is that the soliton solutions can both be singular and regular. Although the general soliton
solution admits singularities we present parametric conditions for which nonsingular soliton propagation can
