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!
