View Full Version : Application for creating backing tracks

03-11-2005, 02:13 PM
Is there such a thing as a downloadable application for creating backing tracks for you guitar playing? I mean, a program with allright sounding samples/instruments, where you are able to choose among different backing tracks - or even better; being able to create your own.

I already know a program called MODPLUG Tracker, which could work, however, the samples are so-so. That's why I ask if anyone know any applications which may satisfy my requests?

You could give Band in a Box a try. Type in the chord changes, select a style and tempo, and it generates a midi playback.

If you're looking more for actual sampled instrument parts, then it's probably not what you're looking for.

Thanks for the advice. I will check out the program. I wonder 'how midi' the samples are. On a classic midi file standard, or like Guitar Pro samples - which I quite like the sound of.

Well, to a certain extent. It would be ideal to be able to create own backing tracks with a computer program, however, I'm sure I'll find many great tracks on the page you mentioned. I'll check it out. Also, in the meantime, until I find a program with decent sounds, I'll just stick with the tracking programs I already got, which for sure works as backing track creation programs. They're just a little primitive, but I can live with that.

I have great hopes for the tracks on the mentioned link. Thank you Satchmaster.

I use band-in-a-box. It rules. Just type in the chords and.... voila.

maybe http://www.wikiloops.com is something you might want to check out
you cant really create tracks by putting together different parts, but you can kick&choose the instruments you want involved plus add your own to the track... fun thing to try.
