In the list of presentations for the WELS 2011 Worship Conference is a session on the new Hymnsoft player (page 8). Sounds like progress has finally been made.
On another note, I wish I could attend everything there. I was in the high school honor choir last time, and will be going again this year as a full attendee. I will hopefully be in the Festival Chorus…
A pastor contactacted me regarding using Hymnsoft (which they now play through their church sound sound system) and were told they could play it through their Rodgers organ via a usb to midi input. Here are my questions – has anyone done this successfully? How is registration selected?
I have no idea, I haven’t used Hymnsoft in that way. I was mostly concerned with getting it to run on Windows Vista/7 x64.
However, the comment by Andrew seems to explain exactly what you want to do.
Do you know of anyone who works with MIDI-Ox and Windows 8? We are trying to get the new HymnSoft 3.0 Player to work with external MIDI devices, but we need something to remap the channels.
