  Frequently Asked Questions

General

What is a Backing Track?

A Backing Track (also known as background music, karaoke, or sing-along track) is an instrumental-only musical recording that you can sing along with. Our backing tracks are perfect for worship at church or temple, home, youth groups, and quiet meditation or prayer. Our tracks are NOT for karaoke machines, and are not CD-Gs. They ARE original instrumental arrangements of popular and traditional worship songs.

Can I use these backing tracks in public performance?

You can use our tracks for any kind of live performance, at church, school, in theaters, or anywhere else you want to sing to our arrangements. Please note that the performance of some songs that are under copyright may require a CCLI license or other venue license.

Why are lyrics displayed for some tracks, but not all of them?
Because of copyright laws and licensing restrictions, we cannot display or reprint lyrics for all tracks. We have tried to obtain lyric reprint permission for as many songs as possible, and have included lyrics for all public domain songs.

I need a song that is not on your website. Can you make one for me?

If you need a track custom made for you, we can create one for you per your specs. Our rates depend on the type of work involved. Please see our by request page for details.

Can I use your backing tracks in a video or multimedia project?
Using music in an AV presentation, video, or on DVD requires a special type of license called a synchronization license. You can purchase a synchronization license for some tracks that allows you to use the music in such a manner without paying any extra fees (royalty free). Please note that, depending on the license agreement we have with the copyright holder of the composition, you may not be able to obtain a sync license from us for every track on the site. If you cannot find a track for multimedia you like here, try any of the thousands of royalty free music tracks at Productiontrax.com.

Music Questions

What key will the song be in?

The demo recording for each track is done in the song’s original key, which is displayed on the track info page. However, you can download all of our songs in any key you want by selecting that transposition from the drop-down menu on the track info page. You can download just one key, or you can subscribe to all the transpositions. Please note that the guide vocal recordings and lead sheets are only available in the song's original key.

I need to add/take out a verse. Can this be done?

Yes. All tracks on Spiritrax.com can be edited and customized to your liking for a nominal charge. We can remove verses, add additional parts (ie interludes, verses, etc), or even change instrumentation for you. Simply find a track you like, and click the customize this track button to order customizations. Customizations usually take 1-2 business days to complete. Click here for more information on our customization service.

Who wrote these songs?

In general, we did not write the music on our site. Credit has been given to the original composer on the track information page when appropriate, and when necessary, proper licensing to create derivative works has been obtained from the appropriate agencies. However, all of the tracks on Spiritrax.com have been arranged and orchestrated an produced in-house by One Light Music staff composers, and are 100% original and new recordings that cannot be heard anywhere else. If you are a publisher, copyright owner, or just need licensing information, please call us, and we wil be happy to assist you.

Can I get sheet music for my band to play your arrangements?

We provide a lead sheet (with chords and melody) in PDF format in the song’s original key with select downloads that you can print and share with your band members. If you need actual printed parts for all of the instruments in a particular arrangement, please contact us to purchase from our printed library. Please note that PDF lead sheets and printed parts are not available for all songs because of licensing arrangements with the publisher or copyright holder.
