Good points being made by everyone here. I was asked where I get my custom tracks made, so I shared it with everyone. There are lots of great places where we can get great tracks. The folks I use aren’t my sole source of tracks–I use many from Karaoke. I just purchased Elvis’ song of ‘Mess of Blues’ from Karaoke and use the custom features to create a really nice track, sounds great 🙂 I used Karaoke’s custom features and removed the guitar solo in the original song so that I can play my own Improved solo with the Saxophone. The track came out nice 🙂
To the other extreme, I use the folks I use to create tracks that you’re simply not going to find on places like Karaoke. If someone can find a good source of backing tracks, (which are already premade which I can download like you would from places like Karaoke) for songs created by players like King Curtis, Junior Walker, Red Prysock, Big Jay Mcneely, Sil Austin, Earl Bostic, Mike Shapiro, etc.. then please let me know. The folks I use produce impossible-to-find tracks to my taste/personal preferences. No, they’re not cheap, but the tradeoff is the quality of the track.
The one I needed involved bass, drums, & guitar. That’s about it. Less than 3 minutes in duration. Cost was $105.00 US dollars. If they do this all the time I would think they have their own recording stuff and would not have to rent a recording studio.
