The ease of use and flexibility to load chimes to the tunes of our Lutheran Service Book was the selling point of this program. I was able to have it up and going in about 20-30 minutes. Wonderful product!!

This system was easy to use and with little support was up and running in a matter of 15min. Great sound.
If you're looking for something to toll on the hour, of if you have your own digitized bells/hymnody, you're in luck. While the included hourly tolls are good, the ancillary offerings of hymnody/bells seems to be quite limited. The good news is that you can use your own *.mp3 files of hymns/bells.
The interface, while a bit "clunky" in places, is relatively user-intuitive.
The system lacks the ability to schedule hymnody/bells on an annual basis for non-movable events (such as July 4th or December 25th); you may only schedule bells/hymns "Daily" or "Weekly" ... but not annually. Additionally, there is no forethought when it comes to annual movable events/celebrations/feasts such as Ash Wednesday, Lent, or Easter; one cannot automatically schedule annual lenten hymnody to being on Ash Wednesday and conclude on Easter - or to schedule Easter hymnody annually starting on Easter and continuing for "x" number of days.
All this said, given it's price point, it's a great program for those with basic carillon needs ... and who don't mind having to seasonally update the programming to account for a seasonal hymnody.
A laptop that was sitting around with a small audio adapter replaced an older system that stopped functioning and added simplicity and capabilities that were not previously available right on time for the Christmas Season. Thank you!
Works as advertised
