What is an Accompaniment Track?

An Accompaniment Track is the entire original master recording without lead vocals. Accompaniment Tracks are only available in the original key and the two neighboring keys (One half step up and one half step down).

Each Accompaniment Track purchase comes as a digital audio M4A download and includes the following:

  • Instrumental stereo track with background vocals in hi, mid, and low keys

Please note that Accompaniment Tracks are available exclusively as M4A digital downloads and are not available as a hard disk purchase.
