All at the touch of a button
Whether you have trouble finding good, reliable organists (or other musicians), have no instrument or simply want good music available for outreach, the Hymnal Plus is the solution. As well as churches, the Hymnal Plus is widely used by Schools and Colleges, Chaplaincies in the Armed Forces, Prisons and Hospitals, Retirement Homes, Retreat Centres, Christian Holiday Centres, Cruise Liners, Crematoriums and private individuals – all of whom find the Hymnal Plus provides their complete worship music needs.
As well as providing a complete worship music solution, the Hymnal Plus can also be used to fill in when the regular musician(s) can't make it. Use it for weddings, funerals and outreach. It's ready to play any time, anywhere.
Thousands of Tunes
The HT-300 Hymnal Plus from Hymn Technology Ltd takes music accompaniment for worship to a whole new level. Straight out of the box the HT-300 plays thousands of traditional hymns and modern worship songs, plus music for weddings and funerals. The standard UK repertoire includes over 2880 recordings, covering over 7300 hymn book entries.
The HT-300 can be upgraded at any time, just choose from the ever-growing list of repertoire additions. Want something else? You can play any tune you like using the built-in MIDI and MP3 players.
The HT-300 features a large backlit LCD touch screen for ease of use and intuitive operation.
The HT-300 is light and mobile and, with built in speakers, is perfect for outreach, home groups, hospital visits, carol singing etc.
Easy to Use
All the great features of the the HT-300 would be worth nothing if it couldn't be used by the average non-musical person. The HT-300's backlit LCD touch screen guides the user through the simple process of selecting a tune and then playing it. Whether changing the speed (tempo) and number of verses, adding an introduction, altering the pitch (key) - it's all laid out in the same clear, straightforward fashion.
Even selecting a musical style is child's play. No techno gobbledegook or arcane numbers that you can't remember, just 244 preset styles divided into three convenient scrolling lists - Organ, Orchestral and Combination (mixtures of sounds).
Hear The Difference
The HT-300 utilises a unique high quality soundset, custom-voiced specifically for church use. Professional musicians have crafted the palette of over 200 sounds into 244 preset musical styles - pipe organs (both with and without pedals), gospel organs, piano, orchestra, brass and woodwind quartets, worship bands, etc. All you have to do is pick a tune and choose a preset style (although you can make up your own styles if you want to!).
The HT-300 features an advanced, high quality sound generator, capable of reproducing up to 124 notes simultaneously. This processing power allows the HT-300 to create pipe organ sounds the right way, by layering individual pipe stops together - just like an expensive electronic church organ does. The end result is far more authentic than the usual simplistic approach found in other products and ordinary midi file players.
Although the HT-300 is very easy to use, no one wants the pressure of finding and selecting tunes one by one during a service, in front of the whole congregation. The HT-300's Play List feature makes this quite unnecessary. You can select the tunes for a service at any time and save them as a Play List. You can store as many Play Lists as you like and each Play List can include as many tunes as you want. Each step in a Play List can be one of the HT-300's internal tunes, or one of your own mp3 or midi files - it can even be a text slide (maybe the announcement of a forthcoming event) if you have the display output option installed.
Entering the tunes into a Play List is as simple as selecting each tune you require. Once you've finished, give the Play List a name (for example the date of the service) so that you can find it easily.
