Last few volume 2s compilation DVDs remaining

We’re about to run out of volume 2s of our 35-song compilation DVDs. Once these are gone you will only be able to purchase those tracks via download.
Each compilation DVD contains 35 Split Track backing tracks. You can rip the songs from DVD to your hard drive or device of your choice – it’s the best value way to purchase split tracks rather than as individual downloads.

Buy the 8-pack set of DVDs now before they are no longer available. You’ll also get our free gifts added to your order.

Free MultiTrack: The Glory by EQ Worship

The free track for February is The Glory and comes with a free simple chord chart. EQ Worship is a ministry of Calvary Chapel Tri-Cities. This track is a single from their recent album, My King is Coming and comes with a simple chord chart.

There’s a lovely electric guitar line and Cassidy Filbrun’s vocals are a real stand out feature. So many producers of MultiTracks don’t include vocals – we think they are so important especially for smaller churches who don’t have many musicians or whose singers struggle to come in at the right place without a lead. We particularly like the way the song builds and brings in a male harmony line towards the end.

EQ Worship draws on the strong musical talents of Brandon Bee and Zach Lamberson, who are worship leaders from Washington State in the USA and who serve a variety of ministries both locally and around the world. They freely give of their various resources to help churches worldwide.

The song comes with the original WAV files for use in a DAW such as Ableton, and Transition Tracks for Worship Backing Band’s Mac/PC or iPad Transition MultiTrack Player. MultiTracks are the simplest and least expensive solution to get a full band sound from your worship team, even if you’ve only got a couple of musicians.

Free MultiTrack and Split Track: Hallelujah based on The Messiah Chorus

Our free track this month is from a brand new batch of backing tracks from Nathan Drake at Reawaken Hymns.

Hallelujah is based on The Messiah Chorus and is taken from the album The Soul Felt Its Worth which is actually a Christmas album containing 25 carols which we now have available in our repertoire. The video below contains a short audio sample of each so you can hear the general quality and contemporary approach. The song melody and lyrics are unchanged from the traditional carols but the music is updated with a modern worship band sound.

On the website you can select any song and listen to a 30 second audio sample.

Check out all our Christmas carols here.

Hallelujah comes with the original WAV files for use in a DAW such as Ableton, and Transition Tracks for Worship Backing Band’s Mac/PC or iPad Transition MultiTrack Player. MultiTracks are the simplest and least expensive solution to get a full band sound from your worship team, even if you’ve only got a couple of musicians.

Free Split Track backing track too

Nathan has also allowed us to release the Split Track free-of-charge this month as well as the MultiTrack. If you’ve not seen our Split Tracks before this is a good opportunity to download one and see what you think of the format. Split track backing tracks have on-screen words and “split track” vocals.

Both versions come with a free simple chord chart.

Free MultiTrack: The Only Name by EQ Worship

Lyrically our free track this month has something of a Christmas feel with it’s focus on the names of Jesus so good to introduce in the run up to the Christmas season.

The Only Name is by EQ Worship and comes with a free simple chord chart. EQ Worship is a ministry of Calvary Chapel Tri-Cities. This track is from their recent album, My King is Coming and comes with a simple chord chart.

Christmas carol backing tracks in MultiTrack and Split Track format

Not all churches have a full complement of musicians for their Christmas services but still want a full band sound.

MultiTracks and Split Track backing tracks are a great option for musical accompaniment for contemporary sounding carols. And, if you do have some musicians, they can play along with our MultiTracks with the backing track simply filling in for missing instruments.

Download individual songs and use them immediately. No subscription needed simply download and play. Simple, honest, low cost pricing.

A huge selection of Christmas carol backing tracks

We have a huge selection of carols and Christmas songs from classics like O Come All Ye Faithful, to contemporary worship songs such as Paul Baloche’s Christmas Offering to songs Mary, Did You Know and My Grown-Up Christmas List.

You can see the full list here. It’s in alphabetical order and you can click to select MultiTrack, Split Track or Chord Chart and then Add to Basket.

How do the Christmas Carols sound?

The video below contains a short audio sample of selected carols so you can hear the general quality and contemporary approach. The song melody and lyrics are unchanged from the traditional carols but the music is updated with a modern worship band sound.

On the website you can select any song and listen to a 30 second audio sample.

What format of backing track do you need?

MultiTracks are the simplest and least expensive solution to get a full band sound from your worship team, even if you’ve only got a couple of musicians. You’ll need a copy of the Worship Backing Band MultiTrack Player which is easy-to-use and has features such as repeating song sections, and changing key and tempo – just like a live band.

Split Tracks are simple-to-use, low cost MP4 video backing tracks. They are ideally suited for smaller churches without musicians. A great alternative to MultiTracks for churches on a budget that want simple, quality backing tracks. Split Tracks feature on-screen words that change in time with the music. You can choose to have no vocals (for karaoke-style worship) or have full vocals and backing vocals in the mix.

Christmas carol chord charts

One other benefit of using Worship Backing Band backing tracks is that our arrangements are easy to play for musicians that are perhaps not classically trained. Guitar chords in particular are notoriously difficult to play in traditional choral arrangements. Our arrangements and the accompanying chord charts are simplified and you’ll not find yourself having to change chord every other note.
