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!
