WELL – THIS POST GOT STUCK IN LA LA LAND! IT WAS SUPPOSED TO HAVE BEEN PUBLISHED A YEAR AGO AND IS STILL RELEVANT! SORRY FOR THE DELAY!
Guide Track is a new app just released today (a year ago) that looks interesting for anyone who has ever been in the situation where you were going to record a song and wanted needed a track to guide you. Simply put, you enter chords, pick a time signature, choose the style, and then Guide Track takes over! You get four tracks of an rhythm section guide track that you can then build your song over top of. I know I always lay one track down at least to get me started almost eery song I create.
Here is what the description in the App store says…
“Guide Track is the primary go-to tool when you want to quickly create a precise guide track for recording when you know the song structure and the style.
Simply enter in the time signature, which chords for how many beats and the beat style—Guide Track does the rest for you!
Use inter-app audio or AudioBus or save your track to file and you are ready to start recording for real with a perfect smart click track and guide chords.
Save hours of messing around and get to what matters—your creativity. Once done you can mute the guide track to reveal your perfectly structured recording. It’s like a sculptor using a mold when casting, except instead of bronze, you end up with perfectly structured music.
You can also use Guide Track to print out chord sheets for your band or to capture song ideas or for recording aid.”
