Can I have key changes?


  • Yes. As an optional extra we will transpose your backing tracks prior to dispatch. Tell us what key you would like or, or if you are unsure use the original as a reference and tell us, in semi-tone steps - (I.e. Up 2 semitones), the transposition you require. An additional cost will be incurred for this service. See price list for details.

Can I have instruments removed?


  • Yes. As an optional extra we can remove instruments from your backing tracks prior to dispatch. Note: We regard Bass (guitar) as a seperate instrument from the 6 string guitar (rhythm/lead) family. Therefore if you request the removal of all guitars we will not remove the bass part unless specifically requested to do so. An additional cost will be incurred for this service although this covers multiple deletions should they be required. See price list for details

Can I have the tempo changed?


  • Yes. As an optional extra we can modify the tempos of your backing tracks. We will require a starting tempo, to which we will ensure that any further tempo variations remain in context. An additional cost will be incurred for this service although this covers multiple alterations should they be required. See price list for details.

Can I download my particular format?


  • Audio tracks are available in MP3 for immediate download. Should you require Real Audio please contact the office.

Is the arrangement like the original?


  • This depends on your interpretation of the word 'original'. Many artists release different versions and mixes of the same song. We recreate our backing tracks based upon the radio edit versions.

Can I use them for public performances?


  • Yes. Many of our customers are professional cabaret performers and as such use our backing tracks in live situations. There is no additional licence required from us for this purpose but, for your own peace of mind, you may wish to confirm the venue you intend to perform in is licensed for live music.

Can I sell my backing tracks with my recorded voice on them?


  • Yes. You are allowed to sell 1000 copies before any additional licences are required. If you intend to make CD's and sell them (at gigs for instance) you will need a further licence to cover the mechanical rights aspect. ShopCYBERMIDI is not authorised to grant such rights. These must be obtained from relevant societies such as the MCPS (Mechanical Copyright Protection Society) in England or the Harry Fox Agency in the USA

Can I use them in any media context, i.e Television, Radio, Multimedia?


  • Yes. Due to the nature of the medium, however, an additional license fee is required prior to any broadcast. This licence will cover the initial broadcast only, further transmissions (repeats) will require subsequent licenses

Do your tracks include 'real' group vocals?


  • Studiomasters Gold contain real (live) group vocals.

Am I infringing any copyright laws?
