Are you looking for music backing tracks?
We can create backing tracks here at Arrangerforhire.com.
Notation is part of our workflow for everything we do here. Notation software offers accuracy, complete performance data in midi (musical instrument digital interface) language, and printable parts.
Production can involve a wide range of options, from output from the notation software at no additional cost, to a studio production costing many thousands of dollars, depending on the nature of the source material and level of fidelity to the source desired. See our page on Music Production Services for more information.
Some production houses specialize in making backing tracks for mass market, skipping the notation step, entering transcription data directly into their production workstation. Economies of scale allow these tracks to be sold inexpensively to the consumer.
As a custom music arranging house, we notate everything – you’ll also have a score and individual parts for the music we create for you.
Custom Arranging Is More Expensive Than Mass-Market Karaoke Tracks
Customers usually prefer to replicate the sound of the original track as exactly as possible. If there are humans on the original track, humans need to be hired in the production phase of the backing track. Producing master tracks in a studio with human musicians can cost in the thousands of dollars – well above the budget justified by solo gigs in cafés, subways, malls and street corners. For musicians on a budget, the sound of a track output from notation software is good enough to achieve their purpose of enabling solo performance with a semblance of accompaniment. Our fees will still include custom transcription and arrangement, and to be honest, we are not able to price competitively compared to mass-market karaoke track houses. Many performers acquire the skills to create their own backing tracks and do quite well at it.
