Click Tracks are designed to complement a full band, or at least a strong rhythm section of Bass, Drums, Guitar & Keys. The downloaded audio file is a high-quality MP3 file with the CLICK & CUES panned to the LEFT channel, and the TRACK mix is panned to the RIGHT channel. This separation allows for the drummer on stage (and anyone else on in-ear monitors) to hear the click only in their ears, while the track mix adds to the live band mix in the house.

Tips for using iTunes
If you are using iTunes, or any software that adds an audio "enhancer" option, make sure to deselect this option in your preferences. Otherwise, the separate audio channels may bleed into each side causing the click to be heard in the track channel. Also, it is recommended that the tracks be played back flat with no EQ enhancement from the playback device. It is best to make EQ adjustments at the main audio console in your worship venue.

Click Tracks are our most popular audio track product at PraiseCharts. If you're new to using backing tracks, or a seasoned worship band, Click Tracks provide a way to sync your entire band to a consistent tempo and give you helpful navigational cues while using in-ear monitors.
Rhythm Tracks were created based on the success of Click Tracks. Rhythm Tracks are similar to Click Tracks, built on the exact same arrangement, but intended for a different level of the worship band. Where Click Tracks are well suited for a fully developed band that has a solid rhythm section, Rhythm Tracks are designed for a smaller band that may not have live drums and bass guitar.
Choir Practice Tracks are very similar to Vocal Practice Tracks. They are high-quality tracks that are derived from our MultiTrack stems and have been designed to resource Worship Choirs, making it easier for each section to learn their parts.
We have a variety of track products to enhance the sound of your live worship band. Need to fill in a couple of missing musicians? Try a MultiTrack. Just need to tighten up your band? Let them follow a Click Track. Missing a synth or drummer? Rhythm Tracks will help fill you out. Plus tracks for Vocal and Choir Practice, Reason files, Backing Tracks. Our tracks will keep your band in the groove and in the right tempo. No more speeding up, slowing down, and sounding thin.
Listening to a live worship album makes you feel like you are right in the room, surrounded by hundreds of other worshippers. Usually, the arrangement and vocals are less polished, but that comes as an easy trade for capturing the authentic worship experience. When we chart these arrangements, they serve as a great resource to demonstrate how to lead these songs in your own live worship setting. Playing for live worship is not the same as playing in the studio. This list is full of our favorite live worship arrangements.
