Where to Find Backing Tracks for Singers

Karaoke is a very popular form of entertainment and finding quality backing tracks can pose a problem. Karaoke machines, depending on what type you have, can play CD, DVD or MP3 tracks. If karaoke is your business you want to stay current, so finding karaoke tracks for singers is very important. I am going to list three great places to find quality tracks that will keep your supply up to date and fresh.


Retail Stores

Backing tracks, also called accompaniment tracks, can be found in stores that sell music CDs. Wal-Mart, Best Buy, Target, F.Y.E., etc., usually have a karaoke section that sell these tracks. You can find many styles by many artists. If you are lucky they will have a listening room so that you can listen to the tracks before you buy them. The last thing you want to do is buy a track that does not sound good.

Online Stores

If you are in an area of the country that does not have a Wal-Mart, Target, Best Buy, F.Y.E. etc., you could always order online from these stores. Many carry the same titles as the retail store and some even have a larger list of titles. The only problem with some online stores is that you may not have the opportunity to listen to the track before you purchase it. If you have a certain company you like and trust, then you are in business.

Downloadable Tracks

Having the availability to download tracks for karaoke is by far the best way to get tracks for your karaoke machine. Most current karaoke machines can play CD, DVD or MP3 tracks as mentioned before, so you can easily download and burn your purchased item to one of these formats. There are many places to download tracks and you can get them with a click of a mouse. iTunes, Amazon, and other online companies carry backing tracks of most popular and current songs. You will have the convenience of being able to listen to the tracks before you purchase them, plus you can download the track right to your computer. This also saves space when you can download the tracks. Most people just have a dedicated hard drive to store them for safe keeping.

Backing tracks for singers are very important if you love to sing or have a karaoke business. There are many companies out there that carry them, but they are not always good quality. My suggestion is that you find a good company or download service that make or carry good sounding tracks. Once you do this you will be on your way to some great sounding entertainment.
