Hi All — I currently make practice recordings for my choir members. Seems to help a great deal. In the past I’ve just used my iPhone to record the part and email it off. The limitation to this is that the recording is of one part. I’d like to be able to send out recordings with all the vocal parts with the soprano line “solo’ed” out for the soprano recordings, the alto line for the alto recordings, etc. Does anyone else do this? If so, which software do you use?October 18, 2018 at 5:16 pm #580939
I have made rehearsal tracks for years as the assistant/accompanist. I was using an old program called Cakewalk (circa 1990). It will no longer run on my computer, it’s THAT old.
Now I use an 8-track digital recorder or a program called Power Tracks. Sometimes I use Audacity. I record the piano part or piano reduction. Then, I take a contrasting sound patch like “Vocal Doos” or a flute or clarinet (for the tenors) and record the choral part on a separate track. Since I grade on how well the student stays in sync with the accompaniment, I need to always have the piano part/reduction playing with the choral part.
If that makes any sense. ‘
So sad my Cakewalk program pooped out on me. I don’t like embracing new technology, ha!
Hope that helps!
