“I have interns that are under me for worship this will be a great tool for them to learn chording, timing, and arrangements. Thanks for the great work.”
Rick Flood, Associate Pastor, Bedford Christian Community, Michigan, US
“Thank you for the Worship Backing Band DVD – a fantastic resource – and also for the prompt delivery. I am impressed with how easy it is to use. The set lists are great & cover every area you want. The sound quality is good – not everyone in our group was familiar with the songs so we used the version with words and they were easy to sing along to. I’m sure this is going to really transform our small group worship & is great value too!”

Worship Backing Band MultiTrack Pro Wav Player
Does your church sometimes only have half a full band or even no band at all?
Do you need something to fill in for missing musicians?
The Worship Backing Band MultiTrack Pro Wav Player is a downloadable Mac or PC software player and backing tracks where you choose any instrument combination in the mix. So if your band only has keyboard and guitar you can mute those on the track and leave in and even mix the volume of the lead and backing vocals, drums, bass, electric guitar etc and play along.
The Pro Wav Player uses wav files (so the audio is stunning quality), enables key and tempo change AND you can loop or repeat any part of the song on the fly. There is hot key and footswitch control and you can even import your own songs and loops. And it’s super easy to use. Watch the demo videos.

Split Track Backing Tracks
SplitTrack Video Downloads are individual backing tracks to worship songs featuring onscreen words and “split track” vocals. This means that you can choose the volume level of the vocal from 0 to full via your left/right audio balance so that you can hear either no vocals, a little vocals or a full vocal lead.
The split track vocals mean that less confident singers (or indeed the rest of the band) can have the professional vocal line in their foldback so that they can hear where to come in and pitch more accurately. You can also adjust it so that your congregation hear the vocals as well.
There are on screen words for each song which come up in time with the music. So if your band only has keyboard and guitar you can mute those on the track and leave in and even mix the volume of the lead and backing vocals, drums, bass, electric guitar etc and play along.
With Split Tracks you simply purchase and download the songs you need. You can easily create your own playlists using software such as iTunes.
“A reservoir of creative rehearsal ideas that allow the worship leader, musician or vocalist to learn and enhance a playlist for a variety of settings. The tools are practical and inspirational for churches, small groups and bands to lift up expressive worship and a joy to practice with.”
Worship Leader Magazine, March/April 2010
“Well done ! The backing DVD looks brilliant and its what I have wanted to see for many years”
Geoff Boswell, Sound Engineer and Bass Player, Ashtead UK
“I try to play bass in the church band and find that the backing band DVD is not only great fun but it gives me the ability to play more confidently. Having practiced songs on the DVD beforehand means I am less reserved and more sure of my playing when it comes to our Sunday service. I have also found that practicing is far more fun and I often end up playing “just one more” song. Another great DVD well done.”
Ed Twentyman, Cupar Baptist Church
