Plano, Texas (PRWEB) April 10, 2012
RocketPop Games LLC has finished development of Worship Band In Hand "BIH"- a new mobile app for Worship Leaders in conjunction with Lee Bridges, Mixing Engineer and Producer out of Nashville, TN.
Charles Joyner, Co-Founder of RocketPop Games said, "We normally make games, but when we were approached to do the project, we just thought cool let's do it". Joyner has spent most of his career in game development, but took some time off to work for God for a few years and learned a lot about live production engineering. "It is interesting how this all came together, Daniel Martin a longtime friend, production manager and engineer called me up and connected Lee and I together. We thought what an awesome idea and right after we began developing".
Worship Band in Hand is a mobile app for iOS (iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch). It provides Church and Worship Leaders with a backing band that can be tailored to their needs. It’s a whole worship band that fits in your hand!
Lee Bridges mentions, "Our goal with Worship Band in Hand is to transport a studio-quality worship band into churches everywhere. We want to offer a flexible backing band that can shrink or grow to fill in the gaps of a church’s shrinking or growing worship team. Worship Band in Hand works alongside live musicians to create a full worship experience that can be tailored to fit a church’s specific and unique needs."
Bridges goes on to say, "It is also important to us to offer this opportunity to churches and worship leaders in a very affordable way. Instead of requiring a special computer setup and charging a premium for songs, Worship Band in Hand works on devices that many churches will already have access to (iPhones, iPads, and iPod Touches) and offers songs at a bargain price. We understand that many churches that will find Worship Band in Hand useful do not have large budgets, and we do not wish to put financial strain on any church."
BIH is a free app and comes with a free preview song. There are many songs to choose from that are available through “in-app purchases”. The Christian songs will cost between $4.99 and $9.99. There is a full mixer in the app, tracks can be muted, track volumes can be adjusted, pitch can be changed a full note up or down and the user can create “set lists” for the Worship Service where one song will play after another. Once all the adjustments are made, the “set” is saved and ready for the live Church Service. Additionally there is the ability to adjust the time delay of the set starting and times between songs if the Worship Leader would like to talk between songs, and a lot more. As far as output, the music comes out one channel and can be connected to the sound board and the other channel can be used as a click track for the bands "ears".
Most Worship Bands practice during the week and BIH is a great tool for practicing too.
