on using backing tracks

just to cover the base sent this email to their support staff

while i would be playing my guitar and singing live am i permitted to use backing tracks created with band in a box and mixed in along with my live performance on streetjelly

got this response from Frank Podlaha at streetjelly

Yes, Mike. Backtracks, looping devices, etc. are all acceptable on StreetJelly. The "no recordings" headline means no full playback of mp3s, videos, etc.

Rock on!

Mike,
does this mean you'll be appearing live sometime soon?



I spent most of the day perusing the site, reading profiles (many of which have embedded videos) and watching a few "on the air" presentations. There are some talented people on that site... but I think the people from this forum will compare favorably to the vast majority of contenders getting up there with an acoustic guitar.

Y'all have put lots of love into your songs, and PGMusic products have put this group ahead of the curve (while users of other software are still trying to finish the song, y'all finished your songs easily then spent the rest of your time learning the tricks of mixing and mastering)

You all have excellent products, and more than a few are seasoned performers. I can't wait to watch the PGMusic forum members carve out their own niche on StreetJelly.

And it would be great if we gave PGMusic a plug or two at every performance.

Mike: Thanks for the confirmation on the backing tracks. Always good to know the official policy!

Pat: Although I have heard folks use backing tracks there, I haven't seen anyone do a tightly integrated show. I think that would be interesting for sure. As always some will love it and some will bemoan the use of technology (ha, ha).

I, for one, would love to hear some jazz sets. And, of course, the singer/songwriters with full productions. ... and covers! It might be nice to do a couple of full production numbers and then one "naked" one (figuratively speaking) for contrast.

I think I mentioned the BIAB product and the forum at both shows I did. I hope to see some BIAB'ers there soon. I see that Pat and Silvertones signed up. More please!

I asked them that very question:
Yes, absolutely you can use backing tracks, loopers, etc. When we say, "no recordings," we really mean that folks just don't play their mp3's/or premade videos and not perform live.

Have a great show!

Kevin,

I was only able to catch a little bit of your set the other night. Good job bro.

I'm curious, what is your internet speed?

speedtest.net

if you're not sure of the speed.

Thanks for the listen!

I ran the speedtest a few times and had quite different download speeds, but the upload speed was around 1.33 mbps. I guess this is a B-/C score against the average. I should be faster, I'll have to see why I am slow.

I would check out some of you guys performing using your recorded backing tracks out of curiosity to see how that works out with BIAB. But personally I'd prefer to see/hear a completely live performance even if it is only one person and one guitar.

Hey Kevin, I'd like to hear someone on there who is already using backing tracks. Do you remember who you saw? So far the ones I've heard were totally acoustic or just using a harmonizer.

So I signed up. LOL! Have no idea what I'm doing or when I'll be ready for on air.... got some equipment issues to solve first...
www.streetjelly.com/josiebeck I'll keep you posted.

Meanwhile I'm looking forward to seeing more of ya'll.

Here are three acts that I have seen using backing tracks in the last couple of days: LanaEve, Cecilee and Kurt. They don't use them on every song, though. Maybe Kurt does, but mostly rhythm type stuff.

I think the guy using just the vocal harmonizer with the guitar and vocal didn't work for me. I don't like harmonizers unless they are blended in somehow.

Great to see that you signed up!

yeah, mine's surprisingly low too... barely over 1.06Mbps Hmmmmm
I'm going to try it anyway. Its free, so there's nothing to lose if something goes wrong. I figure at worst the picture will stay the same for brief periods until it catches up aqain... I've seen that happen quite a bit on other peoples' shows, and it isn't particularly a show-stopper.

I logged in an caught him red-handed trying to dial in his setup with nobody looking. Apparently he came back twice more after I left. They may not have been full-blown performances... maybe just live test sessions to see if he had things the way he wants them yet.

That sounds about right. No rush, whenever you want to give it a try, just send me an email: kemmrich @ jkt9000.com (remove spaces, of course)
