Smile Split Track CD and Soundboard

Greetings!
I have a split track accompaniment CD for our Easter cantata. Can anyone explain how to connect the CD player to the soundboard in order to split the track (take the vocals out) and leave the orchestra in? Thanks for your help.

Usually a split track has the instruments on either the left or right track of the stereo track. As long as you're hooking up the CD player with both left and right inputs into your sound board as 2 inputs (the normal way) instead of combining them into 1 all you need to do is to pan the channel either all the way to the left or right. Then all you'll get will be the instrument track.

Right. Do not use the 'tape in' on your board if you have one. The CD player should be plugged into 2 regular channel inputs. You could then just mute the vocal channel

-If you have the time you can rip the track into a DAW, mute/ remove the vocal track and burn the disc back out.
-If you know the channel that has the vocals you can just unplug it from the back of the CD player if your board is not set up to handle stereo signals properly

Or you could just simply plug whatever side that the music is on (left or right) into a single mono channel, and leave the vocal side unplugged.

By all means, utilize two separate channels on your sound board. This will help you out in rehearsals big time, by just bringing up the vocal trax slightly to "help" the choir get thru dificult spots until they learn it. We use it this way all the time.

Absolutely,
USE TWO SEPARATE CHANNELS on the sound board, one for the left, and one for right.
This is VERY useful when working with split tracks, allowing you to mix the music (usually the left track) and the vocals (usually the right track) independently. For instance, I will often completely remove the vocals from FOH, but add the vocals to monitor mixes to help the performer(s). This can be ESPECIALLY useful for children's musicals.

What console are you using? On Mackie boards the Stereo inputs will mono the signal if you just plug in to the left input jack. So, if you wnt to split the tracks and have just the orchestra playing, find out what side the orchestra is on and plug that in to you desk. If you want to be able to use the vocals to enhance your choir, plug the other side into a seperate input.

That is the same case with our Soundcraft. And yes, we also run the vocals into another channel sometimes and put them in the moniters for confidence, and with children's musicals, sometimes we'll run a little of the vocal track in the mains when they won't sing loud enough.

Thanks for the response. Now the choir can hear the vocals and orchestra, and the congregation only hears the orchestral accompaniment. Thank you, and God Bless You! Have A Happy Easter!
