Our original Worship Backing Band DVDs (basically “karaoke” style backing tracks with onscreen words) have been hugely popular but, being a DVD, do have their limitations. Whilst they are great value – you get 54 backing tracks for only $39.99 / £29.99, some users wanted to create their own play lists, and others felt that the words did not come to the screen quite quickly enough for the congregation before the music kicked in.
We’ve addressed both those issues with our new SplitTrack Video Downloads plus added in a fabulous new feature. With SplitTracks you can choose exactly how much of the vocal to have in the mix. This means that you can choose the volume level of the vocal from nothing 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 SplitTrack vocals mean that less confident singers (or indeed the rest of the band and congregation) can have the professional vocal line in their foldback so that they can hear where to come in and pitch more accurately.
There are on screen words for each song which come up in time with the music – a little earlier than in our DVDs. And we’ve given the graphics a clean new look.
The other big difference from our DVD product is that with the Quicktime-based downloads you can easily create your own play lists using software such as ITunes which makes it great for churches without a band or for small group worship times. You just choose the songs you need, purchase them from our website as downloads and put them into your playlist and off you go.
