Public Beta testing for next EasyWorship version release

Hello EasyWorship Community!
We are getting ready to release a new version that includes some new features, including Alternate Output and we would like some more beta testers. We have done a lot of private beta testing to clean up a lot of things in this new build and are ready to open the testing up to the public. Installing the beta will install separately from your current version and will not affect your current version. It will use the same database if you're using a profile called Default, so any changes made to your database in the beta, you will see those if/when you go back to your current version. Please make sure you are currently running the latest update available from our downloads page before installing the beta.


If you do have a one-time purchase license and would like to play with/test the features, you can install the beta. You will just need to sign out of your account in the beta and run it as a demo to see the new features.


We do not recommend using this beta in a live service.
If you do find any bugs, have any questions, or have any suggestions, please comment on this post and we will be monitoring it.

can you show the shedule item via midi - you show the slideĀ 

Yes, you can control the schedule and slides using midi in the current version of EW. You will use Next or Previous Schedule or Schedule No. But you will have to use it with another function like Goto Presentation start or Slide No. It has to be used with one of those. By itself it won't do anything.

Hi Dan So I have EW midi working well I currently do exactly as you discribe also works well on the beta with the alternate screen. But - I have a setlist of 4 songs in EW I send sch1sld1... When the next song in my software comes up sends sch2sld1 and so on - everything works yahoo the slides change in the EW and on all the screens and all 4 songs work as I go from on song to the next what doesn't happen is on the operator screen the visual highlight of the schedule item does happen even though the song is going as expected

I understand now. Yes, that happens to me every week and I have added it as a bug in our list. The highlighted schedule item does not follow when using midi. It always stays on the first schedule item that went live using midi. I do hope this gets fixed soon. If using foldback, it definitely affects the next item at the bottom of the screen because it doesn't actually show what's coming up next.

Will the alternate output allow us to send alpha channel over NDI?
What we really want to accomplish with this is have one output that goes to our projection system and a different output that goes to NDI with just the lyrics to be used in our live stream setup. I believe this would be a common use case for the alternate display.

Yes, all outputs from EW (main, alternate, and foldback) will be able to send through NDI.
