So for the sake of expedience, and saving the hassle of getting everyone together in the studio, I'm considering using backing tracks and/or playing the instruments myself for the band's demo. I'm not going full karaoke, but maybe programming drum tracks using loops or midi. The band is a cover band. By doing this, I won't need to get the whole band together to do a demo, and we have something to use for bookings sooner. The downside is that I'm not using the musicians that will be in the band for the demo. It's not that the guys can't play that stuff, they can. And the goal is to give an idea of what we sound like, so I don't think I am misrepresenting anything. Any thoughts?
