Bed tracks create an atmospheric ambient texture that sits underneath everything. Thousands of churches use bed tracks to effortlessly transform their worship sets by creating depth and texture, ambience, and awesome transitions. They give the music a sense of depth and weight and it helps glue everything together.
When To Use Bed Tracks
During your worship sets, you can have a music bed that never stops playing, which makes for a much more cohesive worship experience. When you finish a song, let the pads continue. Let them play during prayer moments. Bring them in towards the end of a moving sermon or talk. Cross-fade between pads in different keys for smooth transitions from a song in one key to a song in another key.
How To Use Bed Tracks
These pads are not progression specific so no click track is needed. Simply play the pad in the key that your song is in, and any progression in that key will work. The pads will sit underneath your music and sound beautiful. You can play on top of these pads with any instrument – keys, guitars, etc.
What Hardware Or Software Is Needed?
Because these tracks are in mp3 format, you can use them with anything. Load them into an iTunes playlist. Bring them into Ableton Live, Logic, Pro Tools, or any other DAW. Play them straight from your smartphone or tablet. Whatever workflow your band or church uses, these tracks will fit.
