Ratings and Reviews
Not so good for Apple users.
Inputting your own songs is rather difficult. Relies on a text file within a zip file of your instrument and vocal stems to make everything work together. I have worked for hours and have yet to get one song to work. Every time I try to save changes to the text file the app crashes. I have been in communication with the developer of the app and he admits there are better apps available which work more seamlessly for Apple users and he named a couple.
Developer Response ,
Sorry for your experience trying to import songs. Our song import process is improving all the time. Our open format means you are in control of your library and, while there is a learning curve, our users generally find it worthwhile to learn. And there are over 500 songs from various providers already available without doing any song editing at all. There are really no apps that approach the integrated capability of our app, for any platform.
I lead worship for our main sanctuary and our youth group. We have a few high schoolers and a lot of junior high kids. Trying to lead a bunch of teenagers from acoustic only wasn't working, but it was just me and a junior high keyboardist. I introduced this program and multitracks to fill out the sound and create a more full environment of worship. It did just that, while our worship experiences were good before, I am no longer limited in songs and our depth of worship grows deeper. Our team is growing but now we have a firm foundation for our youth team, and with the varying schedules of kids and even adults at times, I don't have to worry if someone cancels last minute.
The best part is, I can use tracks from anywhere I can get multitracks. I can even create my own multitracks and put it in this program.
On top of all that, the support and people that make this program are extremely helpful. This program makes the most sense instead of using a program where I can only use songs bought from a site and then be limited again to what's on their site.
I recommend this program to anyone who can't afford ableton live, it's a great way to lightly and cheaply introduce multitracks.
The Swiss Army Knife of Multitrack Apps
Not so much an app as a platform for the creativity of your team. WorshipSong Band Can be used on any tablet or PC/Mac, with any content, and offers features like integrated chord charts and lyric display, networked operation, metronome/pads, tempo change, key change, seamless looping, etc. The list goes on and on.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
