Backing tracks?

Does anyone have a good place to go for backing tracks (specifically minor blues)? Obviously there’s YouTube, just wondered if I’m missing a trick?

This is a good one when you-tube is not you to go to…

Backing Tracks

I use Spotify as well as YouTube. For commercial song backing tracks rather than generic backing tracks, I use they are only a couple of pounds each

A simple search in the COmmunity gave these topics.


you can make your own by running the original track through Moises - AI track separator.


Game changer, thanks for that!

What’s the cost of this? I had to search through multiple pages until I finally found a link to their “pricing page”, only to find that page was accessible to account holders only. I dislike creating accounts just to access extremely basic information which should be on the homepage for all to see.

@Goffik It’s £34.99 for the year, though they did have a Black Friday promo of £17.49.

You can use Moises for free - it’s very capable right out of the box, though there are some limitations.

IIRCC, I pay about $8 Canadian a month.

I use it daily in my practice, so money very well spent.

Price as @Sound_Bound says, but the free version still allows you to split 5 tracks a month into 4 stems, vocal, drums, bass, and other (which includes guitar, keyboards, synths etc). The paid version allows unlimited separations and separation into 5 stems which can include guitar.

TBH I’d have been quite happy to continue with the free version, but that Black Friday deal at under £20 for the year was a no-brainer


I did get that deal and I don’t regret spending just about 18 quid, but I have to say I was a little bit let down.
The limitations that Tom mentions were quite significant I think.
Maybe I’m using the thing wrong, I don’t know… But it seems unable to separate 2 guitar tracks. And most of the bands I like listening to have two guitars (see Metallica, Slayer, Sepultura etc. etc.) and even 3 (Iron Maiden). So for as many songs as I tried, both guitars end up on the same track so you can’t separate rhythm from lead.
That’s pretty fundamental I’d think and yet the software sucks at it.

I was referring to the limitations of the free version.

I guess I hadn’t noticed that. Have you played around with the different separation models? I notice there’s a catch all “other” track at the end of the list, where the “leftover” instruments go. Though it seems a bit unpredictable.

There’s also a Producer subscription which claims better separation…but it’s a LOT more expensive - $100/month, IIRC.

Hi Tom!

Yes, I did play around with the various options but I didn’t manage to make it separate the different guitar tracks. In a couple of cases the “Other” track had both guitars in. In a different one, the two guitars were again in a single track and in the Other track you could hear some music but really very distant, like an echo.
I might have missed a setting somewhere though, I don’t know.
If someone knows how to do it then I’d be happy to learn how to do it!

Oh no, I wouldn’t pay that much for any monthly subscription!!
I think the only thing I’ve subscribed to which has a higher monthly cost is the commute to work :joy:

For that price you might as well buy a perpetual license to RipX


For blues you could always record your own backing track or use software like

Cool thanks for that, I’m learning Cubase but there are good pointers here that I can adapt. Ultimately I want something set up that I can just switch on and play along to

I just remembered that I had managed to separate channels in Reaper. I’ll try to find the project later to share a snapshot but for the time being I thing these might help:
