Inspired by the Colorado Symphony Orchestra’s “play-from-home” performance of Ode To Joy, my band wants to try something similar. My idea is to lay down a scratch piano+vocal+metronome track to a WAV file, and get everyone else to play along – we’ll then mix the individual tracks to create a complete performance.
However – this has to be simple. Not everyone in the band is running a DAW with an audio interface. However, we all have smartphones. Does anyone know of an app that will:
- Play back a WAV or MP3 file
- While recording a second audio file
- That can be independently exported as WAV or similar (for import into a DAW)
- And keep the two synchronised (sample-accurate?) to facilitate mixdown
This is an offline project – no (doomed-to-failure) attempt at real-time collaboration is required.
Video recording is a bonus, but not essential.
I’ve heard about the trackd app and others, but these seem to be limited to 8-9 tracks, and do not offer individual track export. We will need about 12-16 tracks – we can mix down in Pro Tools or Logic, but not record everyone.
Many thanks for any help/suggestions. (Note: cross-posted to the Keyboard Corner forum).
