Select items from the Demos menu above to listen to the mp3 demos.
The Demos page is a great way to listen to the tracks at your leisure. You can listen and download the demos and check that the recorded keys suit you; check the general arrangement etc and feel. Each demo plays for around one minute and every song has a demo. You can also listen via the ORDERING section as well to make things as convenient as possible!
All demos have been converted to MP3 using a medium quality conversion rate to enable a faster download and save on bandwidth.
Quick Tip - Listen to the demos, note the song reference number and use the search box to add the song to the shopping cart.
The Demos Sections:
I get asked what is the difference between the main FEMALE and MALE sections and the GIGSVILLE FEMALE and MALE sections.
The Standardstrax Female and Male sections are purely for arrangements that are swing, big band, bossa and latin orientated, funky and groove based and includes typical standards and well known songs plus fairly modern and current tunes but arranged in a jazz or swing style - ie fresh versions not normally associated with the tune in question. The Gigsville sections are very much soul, R and B, pop, rock and easy listening based with tunes arranged in that style and maybe some cover versions, based on the original arrangements, included. You won't find any swing or jazz in those sections.
ALL SONG FORMS ARE ONLINE VIA THE ORDER HERE PAGE
Use the search box to find the particular title or reference number and copy and paste the song form information to keep for reference.
The song forms contain all the information on how long the intro is, whether the chorus repeats, where the solo begins (and whether there is one), if there is a key change, etc. to make things as easy to follow as possible.
All CD orders are despatched, first class (UK) or AIRMAIL (overseas), within 24 hours as a guide, but normally as soon as possible!
TIPS - The demos are split into "GENERAL" male and female keys. Please check both pages for any songs that are in the right key for YOUR voice!
