Loops in Worship

Every week at Topeka Bible Church we use "loops" and "click tracks" with verbal cues. A loop is something that is a backtrack or an audio pattern played underneath what a live band plays. A click track is simply a metronome that the band listens to to stay together. With a verbal cue, it's easy to tell where the song sections are — so we rarely miss entrances. A full list of our 100+ library of loops and click tracks are available through

Here's an example of a loop/backtrack that we used several months ago on a song by Delirious? called "Our God Reigns." Most of the audio is created by a Apple's Garageband audio - but the voices and whistling were recorded through my MacBook. If you enjoy these loops, head over to Our Rising Sound blog ( to catch more examples of loops used in a worship setting. Enjoy.
