Guitar Tool Worship Edition Helps Worship Leaders Create, Print and Share Their Guitar Compositions

Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) April 6, 2006 -–

Midisoft Corp., developers of award-winning music software, announces the release of Guitar Tool Worship Edition, a new program packed with powerful features for the novice and advanced worship guitarist.

The Worship Edition of Guitar Tool boasts all the same features in the original Guitar Tool software, including an extensive Chord Dictionary, Tuner, Metronome, Song Editor and Player, as well as notational software to print scores. The new Worship Edition incorporates more than 1,000 well-loved editable worship hymns for the guitar-based church music director.

The hymns previously included in Midisoft’s acclaimed Worship Studio software have been converted to PG3 files and are now a part of Guitar Tool, enabling guitarists to utilize the same time-honored songs that worship musicians love, including holiday favorites. The hymns can be edited, rearranged, and printed for performance or ensemble use.

In addition, Guitar Tool features five essential music components:

    Song Editor – Allows you to create a PG3 song file by providing lyrics and chords, or you can import from the thousands of lyric text files available on the Internet. Edit your song’s rhythm and style, and even make I easier to play with the Simplify Chords feature. Add a MIDI track to your song for a drum base line, a back-up melody, or even a guitar solo.

    Song Player – Plays your songs by showing you the lyrics and chords, as well as the fingering and notation. Transpose your song into any key and print the lyrics together with the chords. Also controls playback tempo. Aids in learning your favorite song with a visual representation of the fingering and chord application.

    Chord Dictionary – Includes more than 3,000 chords. Practice and learn chord fingering, notation, and even intervals at your own pace. Import chord information from lyric/chord text files. Shows you many ways to play each chord, and even features customized fretboard views. You can create customized chords, and it allows you to draw a chord on the fretboard to find out its name and other possible variations. Excellent for beginners, skilled players, and even songwriters looking for that perfect, yet elusive chord.

    Metronome – The built-in metronome keeps you on top of the rhythm, not behind it. You can choose the desired tempo in pre-defined measures/BPM (beats per minute), and select the timing of your measures. The TAP feature detects your song’s tempo automatically.

    Tuner – Accurately and precisely helps you tune your instrument by using your computer’s microphone or your instrument cable. Helps you improve your musical ear by listening to the original tuning and comparing it. The Wizard helps you set up everything for easy use. And, it is able to do customized tunings for many stringed instruments including: Electric and Acoustic Guitar, Bass, Mandolin, Bouzouki, Ukulele, Banjo, Violin, Violoncello, and Viola.

Along with these five main components, Guitar Tool also features a bonus music writing program so users can print out their songs in sheet music form, and even burn their creations to MP3, WAV, or Windows Media formats. The program is MIDI compatible and is able to work with multiple MIDI controllers. The notation software allows you to print your song creations, while the sequencer helps you share your music by creating MP3, Wav, and Windows Media Format files. Also includes plug-ins like transpose, quantize, copy, merge, split, revoice, and nudge.

Midisoft continues to be an active participant and leader in the worship market and is a proud and active member of The Gospel Music Association (GMA) and Gospel Music Workshop of America (GMWA). In addition, Midisoft is currently workshopping its line of worship software throughout the country, for worship leaders and worship chorus directors.

Who Helps the Victims

Who Helps the Victims

Thousands of people around the world are becoming victims to these cyber crimes like Phishing, Identity theft, and Nigerian scams but what happens after these people become victims. When my wife and I became victims of a Nigerian scam with Identity theft wrapped into it very few if any offered us any type of assistance. Victims of crimes like these are being re victimized by local law enforcement, banks, and mortgage companies. The re victimization is after these people first become victims of one of these cyber crimes. It isn’t the cyber crime that destroys these victims but instead it is because of the ignorance of local law enforcement.

When my wife and I were arrested for criminal intent, at BSO 3 male officers strip searched my wife. You would think that for strip searching a female they would have female officers do this. Then for the next 3 years BSO prosecuted us for criminal intent. No speedy trial or anything. Their star witness against us was a 3 time felon who agreed to give testimony against us in exchange for her not having to go to prison on an armed robbery charge that was pending against her.

Do you know how hard it is to get a job someplace when they do a background check and see that you are currently being prosecuted for Grand Theft? I, myself, was incarcerated for almost a month because of this stuff. I would have been there throughout Christmas but the judge decided to hear a few cases on December 24th, postponing her Christmas leave. Of course, I did have to spend the next 2 months on house arrest.

Just to pay my bills I accepted work in construction one summer which is very unusual for me because of my handicaps. I had to agree to low wages because of all the illegal immigrants that usually work these jobs for cheap. The only person that ever really offered us any help was my Mom who made sure our rent was paid every month. I wasn’t looking for handouts but just a job where I could work and pay my bills each month. The jobs I did get would eventually be lost because of all the time I had to take off from work to appear in court. We finally had to cop a plea for BS because we couldn’t afford to lose more jobs.

Our local church, Calvary Baptist, did help with for groceries but all those agencies that are supposedly out there to help with utilities and rent, their help is pretty much non existent. I’ve heard stories of victims who had never ever been arrested before now being incarcerated for these periods of time after they have become victims. You would think that sites like Ebay, Yahoo, Google and BofA would educate their members by sending out an email to everybody but these places say that it is a liability issue and they just look the other way. Even if you become a victim on a site like Ebay they still will offer no help whatsoever.

My son, Jake, who makes good money from sites like MySpace has decided to try and help some of the victims of these cyber crimes. He is an affiliate for this software suite called BuddyPromoter and he has shipped it free to a few victims and has even given them tutorials on how they can replace some of their lost income by utilizing sites like MySpace.

My wife, Karyn, is now a volunteer for this one site Fraudaid which helps victims of this cyber crime that is hitting so many people on the Internet these days. I, myself, have even tried to help some of these people but I have found that a lot of people will not even aknowledge the help you have given them and this rubs me the wrong way.

In the end, who is there to help the victims of the ever growing cyber crime that is victimizing people from all walks of life?
