WHAT ARE MULTITRACKS?
Multitracks are a backing track for your worship service in which you can control each individual instrument.
DO I NEED MULTITRACKS OR BACKING TRACKS?
Multitracks include all audio stems for each instrument and must be played using a multitrack application or DAW. Each instrument is on an individual track that can be adjusted without effecting other instruments. You want multitracks if you want to have full control of each instrument.
Backing tracks are single audio files containing all instruments that can be played on any music player. You want backing tracks if you just need a single track to sing and play over and don't need to control individual instruments.
WHAT IS INCLUDED WITH THE TRACKS?
Multitracks include both a centered and panned zip file of the multitracks, a hymn info file for key and tempo, and matching chord charts. WSB files include all the above in a single file to use in the Worshipsong Band software.
Backing tracks include a full track, a split track with no vocals, a split track with no vocals or acoustic guitar, a hymn info file, and matching chord sheets.
HOW DO I USE MULTITRACKS?
Once you've purchased the multitrack file you can load it into a multitrack app (such as Worshipsong Band or Prime by Loop Community) or into your DAW (such as Abelton or Logic).
WHAT APPS CAN I USE TO PLAY MULTITRACKS?
I recommend 2 dedicated apps for using multitracks:
Worshipsong Band is a dedicated multitracks app for your PC or Mac that includes some amazing additional features such as chord charts synced to your multitrack as well as automated lyrics display. It is a great choice for small churches that need one app to serve many purposes. WSB files are coming soon.
The Prime app is a free multitracks app for the Ipad. Once you purchase multitracks from hymnmultiracks.com you can upload the zip files to the Loop Community cloud to use in the Prime app.
You can also use any DAW you may currently use to play multitracks.
WHAT APPS CAN I USE TO PLAY BACKING TRACKS?
Backing tracks are simply standard audio files (.aiff) and can be played with any music player app.
CAN I PLAY THE TRACKS IN DIFFERENT KEYS?
Though we attempt to create Hymn Multitracks a church friendly key, all churches are different. Many Multitracks apps such as those recommended above allow you to change both the key and tempo of the song.
