I've been using Reaper and a Roland guitar synth to record backing tracks for our worship team. I'll typically record the tune with my scary voice as a "sketch" then back waaaaay down the lead voice for our worship leader to sing over the backing track. My guitar synth rig has a USB memory stick slot so I can load the backing track and I can play my guitar synth over that, going DI into the board.<br /> <br /> I'm still learning but the mix of being able to record horns, strings, keys, and synth pads opened up a whole new world of possibilities. We are a small church and began wringing our hands when our youth bass and drum players went off to college, so having this capability is a new blessing.

Sounds good. Did you record all of that with a guitar synth? We usually do that song with drums, bass, acoustic guitar and lap steel. I like your arrangement, sounds much more professional than ours.

Thanks for the kind words. The drums were sequenced with a free virtual plugin called PowerDrumKit 2 by Manda Audio. Everything else was through the Roland GR-55. I should add that one of the settings feeds the signal from the magnetic pickups on the guitar through the 13-pin cable to the processor section of the synth. So you can have straight guitar going into multi-effects, or COSM modelled guitar sounds, or synth sounds, or a mixture of 2 synth engines + guitar or modelled guitar.<br /> <br /> Personally, I would much rather play with a live band than to my self-arranged backing tracks. <br /> <br /> Blessings,<br /> Mark
