Sweeter Rhythm has released Harmony 2.0. It’s an update of the worship presentation application for Mac OS X 10.6.5 and higher; version 2.0 has over 20 new features and improvements.
Harmony 2.0’s Themes feature addresses the number one feature requested by customers: more control over text. In addition to Harmony 1.0’s LyricDance motion-lyric and Quartz Composition features, Harmony 2.0 supports Concord.
Concord is an app that runs on a Mac or iOS device. It’s a text display driven by Harmony. When Harmony projects lyrics, Concord gets those lyrics over a WiFi network and displays them. It can be used, for example, as a confidence monitor for a band member or to provide large and close-up lyrics to a partially-sighted person.
Harmony 2.0 also offers new language support for French and German readers. Upgrades for existing customers are free. Harmony is normally priced at US$149. Until Easter, it’s on sale for $99, available directly from Sweeter Rhythm (http://sweeterrhythm.com) or through Apple’s Mac App Store.
