Now that we know what a Click Track is it’s time to explore the different ways to set them up and play them in a live church service. There are several effective ways to do this and will explore a few different methods in this post.
Creating a Click Track
The first step is to create a click track using a sequencing software, drum machine or keyboard. There are several different types of beat machines on the market made by Native Instruments (check out Maschine), Akai(check out the MPC) and other companies. There are also mobile apps by these same companies(check out iMaschine and iMPC) and others that are well capable of getting the job done. If those aren’t available to you then you can create them in computer applications like Fruity Loops, Reason, Logic Pro, Ableton Live, Studio One and others. If those softwares are not available to you then you could use your keyboard if it has a sequencer built in. If none of these options are available to you then check out our click tracks section of this site we have some Free Click Tracks as well as a few paid packs. Check out the videos at the bottom of this post to dig more into how to create a click track.
