Hello everyone. Since we launched our original Worship Backing Band Multitrack player we’ve had lots of our more technical users ask if the instrument stems can used in their favourite DAW software (Pro Tools, Ableton, Logic, Garageband etc).
We made our own Multitrack player extremely easy to use and because of that we needed to design a bespoke file format to allow users to download songs in a single file without having to do any assembly work or be familiar with and invest in music sequencing DAW software.
But since we always aim to please at Musicademy we’ve decided to release our multitracks as high quality WAV stems for all you experienced DAW (Digital Audio Workstation) software users. You get exactly the same multitracks in high quality WAV format complete with 14 instrument stems per song including lead and background vocals, a click track, shaker click, two bar intro click and even a vocal cue for song sections and hard to remember lyrics.
So as well as the 14 WAV stems per song you also get a fully configured Ableton Session file in Arrangement view with all the time consuming assembly work done for you. We’ve even configured the song section marker points so all you have to do is download and unzip the file, click on the Ableton icon and it’s ready to go.
The WAVs will of course work in any DAW software but we’ve chosen to give you the Ableton session file because we think it’s the most usable DAW platform for running tracks live. Ableton is a very powerful tool that has the flexibility to grow with your creativity.

Which MultiTrack product should I pick?
If you want a simple, great value solution go for our own Worship Backing Band MultiTrack Player and tracks. It’s by far the easiest most cost effective way to run MultiTracks in church and does everything that most churches need – new version includes key and tempo change functions.
But if you’re more technically minded and want the ultimate freedom in the way you run multitracks then using WAVs with Ableton provides the most creative flexibility of any solution out there. Ableton is immensely powerful, you can build your own arrangements, build and add loops, add video, record, assign multiple foldback mixes, control it from any midi controller… even run you’re light show from it if that’s what you’re into!
