    For various reasons, we won't be able to have a live band for our musical this year. MTI has tracks, but it looks like a few other companies have tracks as well. For those of you who have done Mary Poppins with performance tracks, which company did you use and what has been your experience?

    We did it with MTI's tracks and had no problems.

    I have used the MTI tracks as well. I believe and have heard that MTPit is very good as well.

    I've used MTIs Junior cds and I've also used Thre MT Pit and Right on Cue services. I prefer the digital tracts to the cds because with both companies the kids can also download the app and have access to the rehearsal music and whatever edits I make. Both companies have fantastic customer service. I do prefer ROCS because I can download the program to my computer and see the measures and make my own edits rather than having to send in the requests to the company. Both have added sound effects into the tracks for me also. Hope this helps!
