Frequently Asked Questions

This is a list of the most frequently asked questions. If you can't find what you want just contact us.

Do you have backing vocals on the tracks?

On some tracks the backing vocals are present - only the lead has been taken out.

I've bought tracks from other suppliers and they haven't been any good. How do I know that yours will be good quality?

You will have to trust us! We thrive on repeat business and would never supply an inferior product, checko out our demos.

What if the track I want isn't in your catalogue?

suggest the track to us and we'll see what we can do - we may have it already but not updated our database.

How much does It cost to post out?

It's FREEEEEE !!!

Duties and Taxes

You will be responsible for any duties or import taxes your country charges. We have no way to estimate this cost for your specific country.

What is the difference between a midi file and a professional backing track?

There is a huge difference. Midi files are available free of charge to download off the Internet. All you need is a midi file player or some sequencing software and a sound module or sound card with a GM sound font set and off you go. Unfortunately, you don't know how good the programming is - i.e whether the song is right or not and more importantly even if you have a really good sound card or module, then you still get midi guitars and midi ooh backing vocals both of which are really bad. Midi files are at best amateurish. To make sequenced music sound good and "real" takes years of experience and a complete knowledge of the software, which you are using. You then need specialist sound modules, compressors and enhancers, and an ability to play keyboards to a high standard. Finally you need to be able to play guitar and sing to a high standard. If you put all this together you get a good quality professional backing track. This all takes time and therefore the cost of a professionally crafted track is much higher than an off the shelf standard midi file.

I'm going to order some tracks from you, do they have lyric sheets or do you know where I can get the lyrics from?

We don't supply lyric sheets but you should be able to find what you want on lyrics.com

Do all your backing tracks have proper endings?

No our backing tracks are as close to original artists as possible and fade out where appropriate.

Are the keys of your songs recorded in the original key?

Yes, all tracks are in the original key. Individual tracks can be changed in a range of +2 to -2 from the original key. Compilations are sold in the original key only. Please ask if you would like a compilation changed by contacting us.

Are the finished tracks available in CDA format i.e. CD quality as opposed to compressed (mp3)?

Yes, you can have the tracks sent to you on CD, or in MP3 format. Just select the correct option in the drop-down box when you order. As we pride ourselves on quality, we would suggest that the tracks are recorded uncompressed onto an audio CD.

Can I Have a demo?

Yes - we have several backing track demos - please download and listen to check out the quality you will get.

Can I copy or duplicate the tracks?

All backing tracks supplied by us are subject to legal copyright restrictions and as such a licensing fee has been paid for each supplied track to the MCPS. This ensures that the relevant royalty fees are paid to the original artistes / producers. Restrictions include that recordings purchased from us must not be sold, hired, lent or duplicated without our expressed permission. We do however allow the purchaser to make a backup copy for their own personal use.

I'm struggling to pay?

Occasionally there can be a problem paying using your credit card - we now have 2 methods of taking credits cards - Paypal and now Google Checkout. If you want to purchase individual tracks using Google Checkout please let us know which tracks you require and we'll send you out an invoice. We also accept payment via cheque / postal order or cash (although we don't really recommend sending cash through the post) - just let us know by contacting us which tracks you want first just in case there are any problems.
