Drag your Song Files here(Song Show Plus 7, ProPresenter 4 or 5, or ChordPro)
Wow, you've converted a total of 0 songs with LyricConverter!
I've spent a lot of time working on this and I would really appreciate a small donation if you've found this tool to be useful.
Why Was This Made?
I'm the guy at my church who runs the lyric presentation software for a lot of the services. We used SongShow Plus for several years, and it worked pretty well for us. It did have a few key frustrations for us, plus the fact that we really wanted to switch over to a Mac. After looking into it, ProPresenter seemed like a great choice.
After making the leap, we quickly realized that SongShow Plus had absolutely no way to export our songs, and ProPresenter had absolutely no way of getting these songs from SongShow Plus! Sure, there are a few half-baked solutions out there, or the good old copy-n-paste-every-slide-of-every-song method, but none of those are really ideal.
After talking to the media director at another church, he told me that they were holding off making the same software switch that we had made because they were uncertain of how to transfer all of their songs over. This got me thinking… It seemed as if enough people had the need for a tool like this and yet one didn't exist!
In my non-church time during the week I'm a full time web designer/developer, so I decided to take a look at the file formats for each program and determined that it wouldn't be that hard to do! Well… There ended up being a bit more complexities than I anticipated, and it did take quite a while to get it to the point where I felt comfortable releasing it. BUT, here it is. I hope you find it useful.

First, some things to note:
- The SongShow Plus files have has only been tested with version 7.
- The majority of SongShow Plus files are formatted in a similar manner which this tool can read, but occasionally there are files with odd formatting. In these cases all the text should be extracted, but it cannot be organized in any way. All I can do in this case is dump all the text onto a single slide. You might have better luck converting these problem files to text format instead.
- Import from: SongShow Plus 7
- Import from: ProPresenter 4
- Import from: ProPresenter 5
- Import from: ChordPro
- Export to: ProPresenter 4
- Export to: ProPresenter 5
- Export to: Plain Text
Eventually I would love for LyricConverter to convert between all of these formats and more, but for the time being this is what it does.
