The Worship Backing Band MultiTrack Player – backing tracks for churches
Musicademy’s newest release is the MultiTrack Player. MultiTrack is the simplest yet most comprehensive solution for churches that want to play contemporary worship songs but don’t have a full band. You download our custom backing tracks and choose any combination of instruments to appear in the mix. So if your band only has a keyboard and guitar you can mute those instruments on the backing track and leave in the drums, bass, electric guitars etc and play along. You can even leave in the lead vocals if you like or adjust the volume of any instrument to suit your worship team’s makeup.
The player itself isn’t at all complicated to use or understand. In fact it’s designed for people who aren’t technically minded and want to get on with playing music, not learning software. So don’t worry if you’re not familiar with Pro Tools, Ableton, Garageband etc, this player is WAY simpler to use than all of those. If you’re comfortable with the usual play, stop, volume & mute type functions on any standard remote control you’ll be right at home.
Simply download the song you want from the Worship Backing Band website, drag it into your play list, mute the instruments already in your band and hit play.
The backing tracks themselves are professionally recorded by some of the best Christian session musicians around, in live worship friendly keys, with church friendly arrangements, all played and sung worshipfully with real meaning and emotion.
Plus there are some really useful features; like selectable click tracks and vocal cues to remind you of key lyrics and song structure, an intro count and two separate mixes. One for the congregation and a fold back mix for the band, each allowing you to choose any combination of instruments. Perfect if you want to use the click tracks & vocal cues just for the band, or even mute the lead vocal out front but keep a little in the foldback to help you sing confidently.
It can be operated by your worship leader, a musician or even the sound engineer and the best thing is you don’t need any special hardware or additional software to run it. Simply download the player and some songs to your Mac or PC, plug a cable into the headphone socket and you’re ready to go!
