NOTICE: This feature is no longer available. The creator of the special decoder that allowed the simultaneous playback of multiple audio tracks has changed their license agreement. They now offer the decoder as open source, but also now require all users of this decoder to also be open source. Unfortunately, since MediaShout 6 can not be converted to open source, we can no longer use this tool. We are looking for other options, but have been unsuccessful in finding a solution that we are confident in releasing.

 

Worship Band in Hand (BiH) is a MediaComplete app that allows you to expand your worship experience with editable soundtracks. A Worship Band in Hand account is required to use this feature with MediaShout.


Inserting a BiH Track


To insert a BIH track, follow these steps:

  1. In the Script Area, select the cue you want to add the track to, or create a Blank cue.
  2. On the Home tab, click Insert Object > BIH Song
  3. If you are signed in to your BIH account, select a saved mix from the list. If you are not signed in to your account, you will be prompted to enter your login information or create an account before you can select a mix.


Formatting BiH objects


The formatting tools appear on the Home tab when a cue containing a Worship Band in Hand track is selected in the Inline Editor. To show the tools, do the following:

  1. Make sure the cue that contains the BIH object is open in the Inline Editor.
  2. Click the Band in Hand button (located next to the Edit Stage button below the Inline Editor). 


The following tools appear on the ribbon:


  • Auto Place. When applying a BiH track to a Lyric Cue, Auto-Place attempts synchronize the Stanzas slides with the audio file, saving time manually placing stanzas with the BiH track.
  • Show Mixer. Select to show the mixer. To adjust an instrument, drag the fader to increase or decrease the volume of the specific track. Click the Mute button below each track to mute that specific track.
  • Open Tool. This opens the BiH Tool (separate application) that allows you to download BiH songs from your account, then saves mixes that you can insert into cues as BIH objects.
  • Play Times. Select the number of times to play the track or Loop.
  • End with Cue. Clear to allow the track to continue playing after the cue ends. Select to stop the music when the cue ends.


When a BIH object is selected, the Inline Editor shows a timeline of the audio file with all of the pages in the cue shown below. To synchronize the pages with the audio track, drag and drop them into the timeline.
