  • Using Multitracks in Mainstage

    Something that has become very popular in churches is the use of backing tracks or also called “Enhancement” tracks.  Sites like Multitracks.com and LoopCommunity.com provide these multitracks.  Multitracks.com has a wide selection of multitracks and many come from the original studio masters.  A multitrack gives you individual tracks or also called “Stems” for each instrument in the song.  Don’t have a bass player one Sunday, no problem.  Add the bass track to your mix and you are good to go.[…]

  • Church Sound on a Budget

    Let me guess, you have just completed your ump-teenth Sunday with less than desired sound quality. Little old ladies covered their ears as they ran screaming from the building and looks of seething rage were directed at a frustrated sound engineer. The bass player looked down to notice a bright blue light glowing from the inside of his moniter. He gives a worried look to the worship leader and says, “uh, is this a problem?”

  • Photos By Natasha Brown

    Beth and I recently spent some time with Aaron and Natasha Brown. We had a photo shoot and them hung out at a Tapas Bar. Yes I said “Tapas.”. Get your mind out of the gutter:-). Anyway they are a fantastic couple. Aaron is a tremendous guitar player and producer and she is an accomplished pianist and photographer. They both work at Gateway and are highly valued leaders in their fields. Natasha took some amazing photos of us for the[…]

  • Piano Tips

    I studied Classical piano for years and really wouldn’t be the player I am today if it had not been for that grueling period in my life. However, the most impacting experience was a 10 minute session with 57 year black organist in West Texas. My eyes were glued to his fingers and it is the formation of my playing style. I am going share my best tips that I have learned over the years in 10 minute lessons. I[…]

Posted by clay.collins On January - 18 - 2013 1 Comment

In this video I describe how you can transpose stems to change the key of your multitrack.  This can be very useful as we often need to have multiple options of keys for the songs we do.  The process is very simple as you will see.

New Multitrack – I Need You More by Bethel Live

Posted by clay.collins On August - 26 - 2012 0 Comment

One of my favorite things in worship is when older songs are made new with a fresh arrangement.  This is a recycle of the old Vineyard Music song in the nineties.  This current arrangement is awesome and very powerful when added to a worship set.  It is female led and has the rhythmic grunge style you would expect from Kim Walker.  Check out my Artist Page at loopcommunity.com to hear this and other produced multitracks that you can use in[…]

Our New Home

My activity on the website has been minimal the past few weeks and really light this last year in general.  Beth and I have been going through a lot of changes in our family and now in our church home.  In April we gave birth to two beautiful twin girls.  It has been an incredible time for us and for our other two kids Grant and Brooke.  We have seen God do such an amazing work in our family and[…]
