Program Overview

HymnSoft Player 3.1 is a media player that includes MIDI files of the hymns, liturgies, and psalms (played on both organ and piano) from Christian Worship: A Lutheran Hymnal, CW: Occasional Services, and CW: Supplement. In addition to hearing the music, you can also conveniently search and view the text of every piece.

Newly added in version 3.1:
  • Search worship resources by word or phrase using the Text Search window!
  • Play multiple music files continuously or add time gaps as needed using the Auto-play option.
  • Enjoy a more enhanced HymnSoft experience! See the updated User’s Guide for complete details.

HymnSoft Player and External MIDI Devices

One of HymnSoft’s best features is its compatibility with MIDI-ready organs, keyboards, and sound modules. In fact, many pastors and music directors rely on HymnSoft to play worship services through these devices, often in place of an instrumentalist.

This file offers tips on how to configure your HymnSoft program for use with external MIDI devices.
