Hi Tom,

Assuming the backing track is one you've downloaded or is from a CD, I would advise you drop that into one of the tracks in the software you are intending to record with (Audacity?).

As you record onto a second track the first (Backing Track) will be played back through your headphones. At the end you will have two tracks, the first is the backing track, the second the recording of the sax. You are then in a position to mix the two tracks together.

I'd certainly advise against (where possible) setting up so that you record the sax and backing track together onto a single track.

I'd also suggest you don't record the sax and then the backing track as you'd need super human timing :w00t:

I hope this helps,

Chris

Hi Micky,

Audacity is great, it's free and quite sophisticated, certainly more than capable if you want to record your sax along with a backing track.

Here's the link: Audacity

There's a few bits in this thread that might be of interest:
Audacity Again - sorry

As always you need to think about a mic as well and how you intend to get the sound into the computer.

All the best,

Chris
