Speaking of email, your email address must be correct or your receipt and download email will be delayed. We have no way of confirming you have entered your correct email address. Please double check your email address before proceeding.
Encore Trax can be purchased on CD's or Via Instant Downloads. The instructions and charges are different for these two different types of sales.
We now have the download process automated so you can instantly have access to your order.
When listening to a song and then deciding to purchase that soundtrack pay close attention to which order link you click on. Below is a sample of one of these order links.
Notice there is a link called "Buy This Track on CD and below it is "Buy This Track Via Instant Download. If you want this order to be a download you must click the correct download link.
When you click on either link you will be taken to the appropriate shopping cart and at the top of the page you will notice the text inside our logo will indicate if you are on the CD or Download cart.
Phone in orders have a $3.00 additional service fee.
We have gone to great lengths to provide an online listening room and online ordering for our entire catalog. We encourage all to place your orders online. We prefer all who purchase our tracks to have listened and confirmed the key, vocal range, instrumentation and style before you purchase any tracks. This way you can be certain that any purchases will be a fit for you.
To take an order via the phone requires extra personnel which costs more and we have to pass this cost on in the way of this service fee. You can always call or email if you have a problem or need help with a certain feature but we prefer all orders to be online.
We also have our Online Chat for any help you may need. If it is off line you may leave an email and we will get back with you to assist as soon as possible.
With and Without Background Vocal Versions
Our website displays both the with BG Vocal and without BG Vocal versions on the same page.
You will actually see up to three versions of our new lyrics pages. Some songs have both versions available some will only be with or without.
If a title has both a "With BGV" and a "Without BGV" you will see 2 track numbers. You do not receive both versions. If you desire to have both with and without version you will need to purchase both versions as if they are two different titles.
Tracks: 1575B & 1593N
The first number will have a "B" following the number and that means this version has BG Vocals.
The second number is the different track number for this very same track without BG Vocals and it will have an "N" at the end of the number.
The number with a "B" is shown if there is a BGV version and the second number is shown if there is a Without BGV version available.
NOTE: Not all songs are even available with or without background vocals. You can't just indicate you want BGV on every track. If both versions are available we will have separate numbers with a "B" or an "N" at the end of the number. Everything we have is listed online!
If a title is only available With BGV then you will see only the number with a "B" at the end:
This shows the With BGV version as number 0567B but there is not a version without BGV so you only see the one number with a "B" at the end.
If a title is only available Without BGV then you will see only the number with an "N" at the end of the number:
This shows the Without BGV version as number 0106N but there is not a version of this track with BGV so you only see the one number with an N at the end.
The vocal demo provided is the same for both title numbers.
Play Slow Dial-up MP3 Demo is for slow Dial up Internet connections.
PLAY Fast Cable-DSL MP3 Demo is for fast DSL or Cable Internet connections.
Notice the key, vocal range and instrumentation is listed for each track number.
This first group is for the "With Background Vocals" version.
This second group is for the "Without Background Vocals" version.
Notice the instrumentation in the second group does not show BGV's. This is the track number to order if you do not want BGV's.
When you order one soundtrack it comes with only that one version.
You do not get both with and without BGV versions for one price. Each track is priced separately. Of course you may order both versions.
The vocal range will indicate what voice range this track is generally suitable for. If we indicate a range of Lo/Med this does NOT mean you get two versions. It simply means the voice range for this one soundtrack will generally work for either a person with a low to medium voice range. You will only receive one soundtrack with each track number. Please listen to each vocal demo all the way thru to confirm the range is suitable for you! We do not have soundtracks that include multiple key versions. There is only one range in that arrangements.

For ordering purposes the track numbers that end with an "N" denote the Without Background Vocal version.

CD soundtracks are provided with all songs ordered on a custom burned single CD. This one CD will have all of the soundtracks first, followed by the Vocal Demo versions. If all soundtracks and vocal demos will not fit on one CD then all of the soundtracks will be burned on CD #1 and all of the vocal demos will be burned on CD#2.
The exact CD format will be determined by the total number of tracks ordered and the total length of the songs included on this order.
As a special order you can order each song on an individual CD for an extra cost of $2.00 per CD.

DSL and Cable Internet Connections Recommended for downloads.
The file size of each song will vary but generally each song will be between 8 and 14 mega bytes and are for fast internet connections like DSL and Cable.
DSL and Cable downloads will take less than 1 minute per song.
Dialup connections can be used for single song downloads but realize dialup downloads will take 30 to 60 minutes per song. FYI, while you are downloading keep surfing or checking email, otherwise your dialup connection can be cut off by your Internet Provider. They don't realize you are downloading a file and automatically cut off your connection. This causes your download to give an error when you go to unzip the file.
When ordering soundtracks for Internet download please double check the following before going to payments sections and checking out.
1. Double check that the email address entered is correct. This is the most common mistake when placing orders. This will delay your order because we cannot email you unless this email address is entered correctly.
2. Please include both home/work or day/evening phone numbers and be sure to include your area codes. If you enter an incorrect email address we can call to confirm the correct email address to proceed with your order processing.
3. Double check that you have clicked on the correct songs you intended to purchase. Internet download and CD purchases are not returnable or refundable. Once you place your order and submit the order with your payment information the order cannot be cancelled as these download orders are automatically processed now and do not have human handling. You will receive an email receipt but it is for your records only.
4. Please note: if the title has a "B" at the end it is With BGV. If it has an "N" at the end it is Without BGV. Please confirm which version you have ordered before checking out. We cannot be held responsible for incorrect versions being ordered.
Download orders now will be taken to their download page for instant downloading. You no longer have to wait to receive an email to begin your downloads. Check our Member's Area link where you can login and re-download your soundtracks.
We do send as a backup an email with download links for each song. Your order is processed and emailed within 1 minute. The number one issue a customer does not receive their download link email is the email went to their junk or junk suspects email folder.
If you do not receive your download email within a few minutes please check these junk folders as well as any AntiSpam folders you computer may have.
These are links to play our demos online. They are found on each lyrics page.
If you have a slow dialup Internet connection then you should click on the "Slow Dial-up" links.
If you have DSL or Cable Internet connection you should click on "Fast Cable-DSL" to play our MP3 high quality demo files.
The highest quality should be the MP3 HiFi link but you must have DSL or Cable to play these links.
If you click on the Fast link and during the song it stops playing and re-buffers and then starts playing again where it left off you should try the "Slow Dial-up" links to match your Internet connection.
CD soundtrack orders that are placed have to be custom burned or manufactured for your order as All songs are on one CD unless you specify individual CD's and pay the additional charge.
Once we receive your order it can take up to 72 hours before we have your order processed and burned ready for shipment, THEN we ship according to your selection at the time of ordering.
The time it takes for the shipper to get the order to you is in addition to the processing time in our office.
Processing Time + Shipping Time = Total Time of Delivery.
We of course cannot guarantee the shipping carrier's delivery. Once we hand the package over for shipment it is out of our hands.
We can only state what the shipper states as their normal delivery times.
If you are a surrounding state to Oklahoma then you should normally get your ground or US Mail shipments in 1-3 days + our processing time.
The states surrounding Oklahoma are: Texas, Louisiana, Arkansas, Kansas, Missouri, New Mexico.
ALL OTHER STATES please allow 3 - 10 days shipping time + our processing time.
If you are in a hurry you can chose UPS Red for overnight shipping BUT you still have to add our processing time of up to 72 hours. If you need a soundtrack right away we suggest you choose to download the track and burn you own copy, which you can do all of this is less than 15 minutes, if you are familiar with the Audio CD burning process.
For example, if your order comes in on Friday after 12:00 noon your CD order will not be processed until Monday. We are closed on Saturday and Sunday and certain holidays.
You can always chose to download your selection and get it as an instant download 24/7/365 days a year AND save shipping time and shipping costs.
Instant downloads are fast, easy and the very same quality as our CD's.
With each order you receive a vocal demonstration to aid in learning the song, the actual soundtrack you use to sing in performance with and the lyrics sheet with the words to the song.
You will only one key or range with each track number. Our soundtracks are not Lo-Med-Hi all on one CD.
We do provide the entire Vocal Demo to aid you in confirming the song, key, vocal range and instrumentation is right for your voice.
The Soundtrack Shortened Clip is there to let you hear just the soundtrack music long enough for the same reason But if we put the entire Soundtrack online site visitors could take that soundtrack and download it without paying for the soundtrack.
That is why the Soundtrack is shortened to a Clip, for security purposes. So listen to the vocal demo all the way through to confirm it will work for your voice, range and musical style.
