How to Get Great Backing Tracks
... That won't break the bank.

By Producer and Artist Development Coach Jase (Jason) Leow


When you come to record vocals at December Switch, you will need something the industry calls a "backing track."

A backing track is a recording. Its a recording of music instruments that mixes with your voice to produce a finished song.

It is also known as an instrumental track or karaoke track.

In other words your VOICE and the backing track INSTRUMENTS get mixed together at the end of our recording process.

Backing tracks come from two places. You'll need to choose which one you prefer:


Backing Track Option 1) More expensive, unique, custom made: We can produce a track for you.

This involves us recording the instruments in the studio for you. This is most appropriate when you have an unusual song, or an original song that you need music for.

Pricing starts at about $75 for a simple guitar based track.

Backing Track Option 2) Cheaper, mass produced, ready made: Order an off the shelf track.



This is our secret supplier of good backing tracks for singers:
