Performer’s Connection Diagram

Backing track connection diagram

Our professional Beatles backing tracks with click tracks are set up with music on one channel and the timing click track on the other channel. The left vs. right choice is based on customer need. The basic hookup is made so that the music channel is sent to the main out buss and the click track channel is sent to the monitor buss. In this arrangement the sound person can blend the backing music level into the mains as needed, and on a separate volume control they can blend the click track into the monitors so it is heard by the performers only.

How To Use Our Beatles Song Tracks

No need to invest in any equipment if you want to use our Beatles song tracks through your speaker system or instrument amplifier. Just play them through any audio device and jam along. Our system of Beatles backing tracks and audio equipment allow you to blend your instrument or vocals into the prerecorded Beatles backing tracks as if you were playing or singing along with the rest of the band. Put headphones on and you won’t disturb the rest of the house plus you get the added thrill of sounding like you are live in the middle of it all.  There’s no better way to enjoy your playing or singing, than to learn a part then jam along with the rest of the band, in this case tracks that sound just like the Beatles.

Performers and bands, we offer these professional quality Beatles song backing tracks customized with click tracks, pitch shifting and other customizing as needed. Please see our “play along” web page for details and this handy performer’s diagram.

Using our Yamaha audio mixer kit makes it easy. We offer the basic kit including the Peavey mixer and a cable so you can use your own amplifier or headphones. Just plug your computer/Ipod/Smart Phone/etc. into the cable that we provide and the other end goes into the mixer. Plug your microphone, guitar, electric drums, electric piano,  or any other electrified or mic’d instrument you play into the mixer as well. Then blend the volumes to get the perfect sound in your headphones or amplifier. See this Beatles sing along or Beatles play along connection diagram for wiring help.

Don’t have headphones, microphone, or an amplifier? No problem, we have other “kits” to fill that need as well, and it’s the same simple process to hook up and get jamming.

Basic connection diagram

This Beatles backing track hookup is shown using basic equipment that you may have around the home. If you play an acoustic instrument you can simply jam along with your playback device and powered speakers. With an electric instrument, plug into your amp and go!

This next setup lets you blend into the mix as if you were part of the Beatles recording. It sounds fantastic!

Sing along & Play along connection diagram

This Beatles backing track hookup is shown using a generic stereo mixer to give the full effects of the stereo tracks as in the original Beatles music. It is possible to use a mono mixer by simply plugging the left and right cables from the computer device into separate channels. That will give you a mono playback but you will still be able to enjoy all of the sounds from the original Beatles recordings. Be sure to set both left and right channel volumes at the same level.

Important Note – Be sure to match your playback device output levels with the correct input on the mixer. Always start with volume controls at near minimum settings on both the playback device and the mixer. If you are using “line output” on your playback device, (with our Peavey PV6), plug into mixer inputs 3/4 or 5/6 line inputs. When using a “headphone output”, be sure to lower all volume levels to near minimum to begin with, then plug into mixer inputs 3/4 or 5/6 line inputs and set the mixer gain control to “1”.  Slowly increase levels on the mixer and playback device till the appropriate level is reached. If you can not reach a high enough volume level, slowly turn the gain control towards the “10” position.
