Worshipsong Band Version 5.2 Released

Automation Worshipsong Band 5.2

Worshipsong Band version 5.2 is now releasing for all platforms.  For version 5, 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:

New Automation Control includes a powerful new Section Actions menu that provides a way to add automation to playback of your set.  Automation commands supported include:

  • MIDI output of Note, CC, and PC commands on any channel, including step sequences.  This can be used to achieve lyric automation, instrument patch changes, and lighting automation.  A simple scripting facility allows complex MIDI sequences to be used, tied to any beat of any song, or on song load or completion
  • Full control of Pad banks and fade in/out
  • Control of video and image backgrounds and external display window
  • Control of preset audio mixes, to script dynamic track fades anywhere in the song
  • Store automation as part of your set, or in the master set list for each song

A new Restart Function allows tracks to fade out at any time, while the click continues.  Playback can then be continue from any section by cueing a jump whenever needed.  Combine this with the pad underlay capability to insert prayer or speaking time, or just to get the band back on the tracks if needed

Chromebooks running ChromeOS 69 or later can now be used with Worshipsong Band Google Play version, with certain limitations

A new offline transpose capability allows songs to be used in any key by integrating an offline pitch shift engine into the song editor on Mac or PC. This technology, from Rubberband Audio, preserves audio quality even when the pitch is shifted many semitones up or down

Synced Cues are now supported on all songs in network mode, even if the song file is not on the client device, allowing tablets or phones to be used as a remote synced metronome/cue over wireless.  Band mix controls have been simplified to support synced audio mode

Custom metronome sounds can be added by users, and a new Hat click is provided as a sample

Fractional tempos now sync to whole number increments when tempo is modified, allowing Worshipsong Band to keep time with tempo wheels on keyboards

Audio latency and jump synchronization is improved on IOS

The support forums are now back up and running, for tech support or networking

Many of the version 5.2 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.  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 or the IOS App Store or Google Play today.
