Worshipsong Band Version 4.0 Released

WSB40

Worshipsong Band version 4.0 is now releasing for all platforms.  For version 4.0, we  have added several new features that extend the app's usefulness to your team, and also added key new performance features. New features include:

Personal Band Mix feature. Audio on multiple devices can be synchronized on a wireless network through Ableton Link, a software library that creates a shared time-grid across multiple devices wirelessly. We've used this concept to add a new personal band mix mode that allows each wireless network client to have their own audio mix, played in sync. This allows click, cues, or a band mix to be heard by the band without in-ear monitors and other Ableton Link enabled apps, such as the Pulse metronome, can sync to the grid established by Worshisong Band.

Pad banks can now be selected and switched on the fly,  in any key to be played and cross-faded, meaning you have no need for a separate pad controller app. If you just need a click, new click tracks with adjustable tempos can be selected and added to your sets.  These clicks can be played with pads underneath. New count-in dynamic cues will count the beats before a marker along with the cue itself.

Preset Mixes have been extended to allow more dynamic control of the mix during playback.  You can add pre-cued mix selection to the song timeline, so the audio mix will automatically fade to the preset at markers. Editing preset mixes is easier with new GUI controls.

Library management is much more powerful. A new set-list import/export feature allows entire sets to be shared with the team, or built on one device and installed to another easily.  Song files also can be copied directly via wireless to network clients within the app.  The library is now visible in the Files app on IOS 11, so you can directly download content to your IPad and use it. We've also improved the track import process to make it as quick and and seamless as possible. A single copy of Worshipsong Band on a PC or Mac provides the same capability to prepare content as other platform's websites, giving you complete control.

UI improvements, including a 25% larger chord chart view and bigger play/pause button. Built-in help now supports web links to help, video, track sources, and more, and a new 'tips' window keeps you aware of app modes.  We've added over an hour of new tutorial videos to the Youtube channel to help you learn to use the features of Worshipsong Band.

Many of the version 4.0 features have been added based on user requests, continuing our tradition of listening and responding to the needs of our worship leader user community.  Worshipsong Band remains the most feature rich worship multi track platform available, and, of course, remains free,  Our open format is the only dedicated 'user friendly' playback platform that does not require you to register, use our cloud, or buy your content from a single provider whose track pricing is dictated by the industry.  Many users source their content from multiple sources, and even make many of their own tracks.  And, of course, independent artists from around the world offer their tracks in the Worshipsong Store, most completely free.  Worshipsong Band ensures a consistent playback experience for content from all sources.
 
Worshipsong Band received a Worship Leader Magazine Editor's Choice award for 2015, the second time it has been so honored.  Download it free from www.worshipsong.com or the IOS App Store or Google Play today.

Give Them More Than a Song

Give Them More Than a Song

If you have ever recorded a worship song, it is an exhilarating experience, but also a lot of work. First there is the writing, wrestling with the words to make them work with the music and rhyme, and say what God has put on your heart to say. There is capturing the right melodies, and putting them together. If you are making a studio recording, there is the process of lining up a producer, players or your band, and the preparation of the tracks if used.  Then there is the recording, sometimes over multiple sessions. You and the producer sifting through the mixes, finding the right ones. Adding the effects, mixing, mastering. Then there is the distribution. Preparing the masters.  Uploading them for the CD or digital distribution process. Tagging the MP3.s, Creating cover art. Social media, etc, etc. For a quality recording, it can be months of effort.

Worshipsong Band 3.1 Released

Worshipsong Band 3.1 Released

Worshipsong Band version 3.1 is now releasing for all platforms: Windows, MacOS, IOS, and Android.  For version 3.1, we  have added several new features to allow much more dynamic flow of your service with Worshipsong Band. The most innovative of these is a brand new type of multi-layered pad we call Atmospheres. We've teamed with Jeff McCullough (Tree Hill Collective, JumpStart3) to bring the capabilities of his new app Altar the Atmosphere to Worshipsong Band. Atmospheres are designed to be used in altar times, prayer times, before and after services, and anytime your service calls for unstructured music. They can be used where you might otherwise have a guitarist or keyboardist playing underneath whatever is going on in your service. Technically, Atmospheres are special multitracks provided in several keys that are designed to be played in any key, for any length of time, and offer a simple slider control to layer the elements. Atmospheres can switch keys on the fly, and fade into one another seamlessly, and be played with a simple long-press on the library menu. The Altar the Atmosphere app launched earlier this year with a collection of 9 Atmospheres to choose from (with more on the way) and all of the content can now be used in Worshipsong Band. You can buy the complete set of 9 at this link. Watch Atmospheres in action:

WorshipSong Band Version 2.3 Released

WorshipSong Band Version 2.3 Released

We are always looking for ways to enable Worship Leaders to make use of more and cheaper resources.  Our new release of WorshipSong Band gives users a whole new way to use our software.  New features include:

Metronome and Guide Tracks

Worshipsong Band now includes a metronome feature. Any tempo from 20-150 BPM may be set, in times of 2/4, 3/4, 4/4, 6/8,and 8/8.  In addition, song timings may now be specified in tempo beats in addition to minutes/seconds.  Adding songs just became a whole lot easier, and it's a snap to set up your chord charts to work in WorshipSong without tracks, allowing your band to use a click track even without any audio augmentation.

Guide tracks is our name for combined click and cue tracks.  These are a part of many multitrack offerings.  What is different about WorshipSong Band's guide tracks is that they need not be pre-recorded.  WorshipSong now has the capability to automatically build a click track and play cues to accompany music you add to the app.  As long as the song follows a consistent tempo, WorshipSong Band will supply the needed click and cues.  And both click and cues follow you through the song as you loop and jump to different sections.

How does this save money?  Take a look at the video below, where we show how you can use a simple rhythm track and get all the features of a full multitrack offering (except individual instrument control), as a small fraction of the cost of a full multitrack.  Such rhythm and split tracks are widely available for just about any song.

Tempo Control

WorshipSong Band now allows tempo control of your songs.  All features of the app such as looping,pitch control, chord charts, etc work with tempo control.  This allows you to fine tune the speed of the song.  Due to the app's sophisticated looping features, a song's tempo can only be adjusted prior to playing the song, but the desired tempo is always set in the set list.

Pads

These were actually introduced a couple of versions back, buy they a great to add ambiance to your set, as well as a good way to seamlessly link songs together with their built-in cross-fade feature.  A single set of pads in all keys is all that is required, and WorshipSong automatically plays them based on the key of your song.

Remember, all versions of WorshipSong Band are available on all platforms, and we never release a version for one platform that is out of sync with the others. Whether you use Windows, MacOS, IOS, or Android, WorshipSong Band will work for you.

Brad Eberly - First Things First

 

Visit any of Calvary Community Church's (Phoenix, AZ) many services and you will experience the worship program that is the handiwork of Brad Eberly, Senior Worship Pastor for many years.  Brad leads a program consisting of multiple campuses and several worship teams for all ages at Calvary Community.  It's more than a full time job ministering to this diverse congregation in one of the less affluent areas of Phoenix, one of the earliest cities to face the full force of the current economic downturn.  Needs are many at Calvary, which is firmly planted in a part of town that is, frankly, past its heyday.  The buildings are not glamorous, and the congregation is diverse.  But the church continues to minister year after year, serving as a visible manifestation of Christ's body in this place where it is so needed, and bringing solid bible teaching and a full ministry program.
