Generous music library included
All musical selections have been tastefully performed by experienced church musicians, rather than encoded numerically on a computer. The lovely renditions of favorite hymns make a positive impact on every neighborhood where a Chime Master Carillon is installed. The entire music library is safely stored in the instrument and is always available for automatic or manual play - no cards, cartridges or chips to change (or damage). Library upgrades can be licensed online and loaded via the USB port. Ethnic and custom libraries are available.
Clear and simple programming screens intuitively guide you through setup and scheduling. The elegant, uncluttered front panel is clearly labeled so you don't have to worry about which button to press. Access your favorite chime music or bell ringing by title on the easy to read display. Then save it to a one-touch function button so you can activate it any time using the remote control.
Set it then forget it
You will never have to change another tape, chip or card, or select a switch for seasonal music. Our exclusive SmartAlmanac™ automatically substitutes seasonal music for you at the appropriate times. No intervention is ever required, even for Daylight Saving changes. Random music groupings allow you to play any style of music, any time you wish.
Ringing schedule memory saves the weekly ringing program for repetitious operation. The Scheduled-AutoLevel™ volume control has eight discrete levels that can be set lower for quiet times, higher for noisy traffic periods. You can easily configure the ZoneAutoMute™ speaker switching feature so that scheduled ringing does not interrupt special events.
Organ chime and more
The Millennium® Carillon does double duty as an organ chime. We can supply a keyboard for your live performances, or you can connect a compatible instrument to the industry standard MIDI input. Select inside only, or inside and outside speakers from the remote control. Select the keyboard bell voice from the remote control. Easily tune the chimes to your organ pipes. The powerful inside monitor amplifier can be used for optional organ chamber speakers. Electric pipe organs can be connected with an optional optically isolated interface.
Play it again
All Chime Master Millennium® Carillon models now have keyboard recording capability. The remote control gives you access to all practice, and recording features. The Recording Librarian option permanently stores up to 1000 of your keyboard performances, which can be seasonally categorized for random play by the SmartAlmanac™.
