MODERN MUSIC PRODUCTION- Using backing tracks liveimages

Many artists use what are called “Backing Tracks” to enhance their lives shows. Backing tracks are essentially audio or MIDI recordings that musicians play or sing along with in order to add parts to their music which would otherwise be impractical to perform live. These can be anything from keyboard and synth sounds to added vocal harmonies and MIDI samples. When using backing tracks the band must play to a click. We can provide these tracks for our clients who have recorded with us or recorded elsewhere in a professional sounding studio. A common way of incorporating these tracks live is to pan the click to one side and the backing tracks to the other side. The click will be sent to the drummers earphones and the tracks will be sent to the front of house soundboard (FOH).

Our schedule is getting filled for the summer so if you’re interested in getting into the studio by the fall please contact us to set up dates as soon as possible. Also, we still have time-slots available for drum lessons. If you’re interested, simply reply to this email for more info.
