FAQs about Bumper Music

How can I use it?

You will be able to use bumper music without restriction in your worship services – no need to display copyright information. You are free to use it any way you’d like in a live environment as well as streaming (if you stream your service to multiple campuses or an online service. You may not use it to create content that will be sold (as backing music for videos, audio, etc). If you would like to use Bumper Music to create content that will be widely distributed (YouTube, Vimeo, etc), please contact us first.

What will I get?

You will get a .zip package containing 12 mp3’s – one mp3 for each key (more on this later). MP3 files are playable in a huge variety of hardware and software – it will easily integrate into your existing workflow.

How do I use it in my services?

Bumper Music is simply an mp3 file, so you can use it however you want as most audio apps can support mp3 playback.

We love to use Bumper Music inside of ProPresenter. Here is a video showing how to do that.

You can also use it from your phone with any mobile app that supports mp3’s. Here is how to use it in the WT Director iOS app.These videos show how to do it with Pads, but the process is exactly the same.

Can I download Bumper Music directly to my phone or mobile device?

No – unfortunately Apple does not support this. But getting Bumper Music on your phone is simple – just download and extract the .zip file after purchasing, and then add the files to iTunes and sync to your phone. Here’s a video showing how to do that. The video shows how to do it with Pads, but the process is exactly the same.

How long is the track?

About three minutes long. We feel this is the perfect length for announcements and other spoken elements in a worship service. If your announcements last more than 3 and a half minutes, it may be time to trim them down :). But Bumper Music is easily loop-able.

Why all 12 keys?

We made Bumper Music in every key because we needed it in our services. We feel this is essential, and this sets up apart from other backing track providers. When crafting an excellent worship service, being able to match the key from one element to the next is essential. This lets you have bumper music during announcements in the key of D that flow right into the next song in the key of D.

Will we make different styles?

Yes. Volume one is a high energy pop style track that we feel works perfectly in a modern contemporary worship context, but we will create more volumes in different styles in the future. Let us know what style Bumper Music you’d like in the comments below!

    I love worship tutorial and appreciate you guys for all that you do! I have been using worship pads since 2013 which has completely uplifted the quality and so handy to carry it everywhere and fills the atmosphere super well when there is just a guitar or a couple of instruments present. Excited about Bumper music, can’t wait to buy this!

      Greetings from Amazing Grace Church Dubai, UAE

    • Brian Nov 21, 2016 at 7:33 pm #

      Thanks! We’re excited for Bumper Music as well (and to use it in our church services).

  2. Rachael Thomas Nov 21, 2016 at 3:42 pm #

    Hey! We live stream our service online…would we still be able to use the bumper music for announcements/speaking?

    • Brian Nov 21, 2016 at 7:33 pm #

      Hi Rachel – that will be no problem 🙂

  3. Lori Nov 21, 2016 at 3:53 pm #

    This is great! We are constantly trying to find appropriate bumper music for our announcement videos. Another style that we would get a lot of use out of would be a little more medium (or even slower) tempo music for things such as testimony videos (which we do a lot of for things such as baptisms, etc.).

    • Brian Nov 21, 2016 at 7:34 pm #

      Thanks Lori! I think some slower, prettier bumper would be a great idea to use for more emotionally driven elements of services.

  4. Mark Nov 21, 2016 at 4:04 pm #

    I love this idea. I do online Bible teachings for men and would love to incorporate Bumper Music track in certain small parts… but you said, “you may not use it to create content that will be widely distributed (youtube videos, for example).” Bummer! Will you reconsider/send me a “go for it bro” email? Or, is there any chance I can pay an extra $10 and use your Bumper Music for small clip background music on my teaching-videos?

    Eager to hear back from ya!


    • Brian Nov 21, 2016 at 7:36 pm #

      Hi Mark – if you are creating the content primarily for use in your church or ministry, I think that would be great. I understand needing to upload that kind of content to youtube so you could stream it elsewhere. If you need to do that, I’d just ask that you note in the description that it is Worship Tutorials Bumper Music and provide the link. Thanks!

  5. Levi Appleton Nov 21, 2016 at 5:08 pm #

    Similar question to some above….what about during something like video announcements? Or another promo for a church event?

    • Brian Nov 21, 2016 at 7:36 pm #

      That would be just fine, Levi!

  6. Forrest Hill Nov 21, 2016 at 9:36 pm #

    I don’t know what kind of musicians you have at your disposal for creating types of bumper music, but I think a great one for a lot of churches would be one with a real country-western feel. Maybe a steel guitar, some mandolin, harmonica, fiddle, and VERY simple drums, bass, and acoustic guitar in the back just to set the foundation.

    • Brian Nov 21, 2016 at 9:38 pm #

      Thanks, Forrest! I grew up in a small town in Northwest Oklahoma – I can do country 🙂

  7. Ben Nov 22, 2016 at 10:27 am #

    Some music to use perhaps as a pastor wraps up his sermon or prays. Kind of a slower moving non-melodic kind of music…..guitar swells, piano, pads, etc.

  8. Brian Becker Nov 25, 2016 at 2:29 pm #

    Any chance we can get this track with less snare drum? We’ve found that music underneath our announcements is great, but that snare sounds can really be distracting to speech – and when you turn the volume down sometimes the only thing you hear is the snare hitting.

    • Brian Nov 25, 2016 at 3:53 pm #

      Hi Brian – Thanks for the feedback! We agree the snare could be a bit quieter, and we’ve actually already made the change. Check out the sample file now – I think it will sit much better in the mix.

  9. Chad T Nov 25, 2016 at 3:09 pm #

    I was really excited about this product, but the snare is mixed WAY too loud. Gonna have to pass.

  10. Spencer Nov 30, 2016 at 1:23 pm #

    Is it the same instrumental in all 12 keys or is each key a different instrumental?

    • Brian Jan 11, 2017 at 2:35 pm #

      Hi Spencer – it’s the same track in all 12 keys. Thanks!

  11. Dennis Warman Dec 17, 2016 at 1:35 pm #

    Hello Brian!

    I love the pads and will shortly begin using the Bumper Music. I sometimes have a challenge with drummers, so i’ve used a pad and a drum metronome, using just the kick drum, to help us keep in time. However, it is unwieldy to do this. What I would like to see is your pads with various tempos with a kick drum embedded. Thank you!


    • Brian Jan 11, 2017 at 2:50 pm #

      Hi Dennis,

      We’ve looked into Pads with some kind of tempo based element in them, but it’s difficult to cover any tempo. You may want to look into multitracks, which have click tracks and other rhythm elements in them for individual songs.

  12. Richard Dickson Jan 2, 2017 at 12:35 pm #

    I’m interested in music for communion. Longer than the bumper, but more melodic than the Pads. Our guitar player usually does this but when he’s out its very quiet. (I’m the keys player, but as minister on staff, I’m the one who leads communion in our contemporary service.)

    • Brian Jan 11, 2017 at 2:57 pm #

      Hi Richard – this has been a common request, and it’s what we’re working on for Volume 2, which should be available soon. Thanks!

  13. Jake Jan 16, 2017 at 3:43 pm #

    Love the site and the products! We use your Pads all the time.

    My church does not stream our services live but we do upload a video of the sermon later. I think this bumper music could work well for the intro music to our sermon videos. Would we be able to use the bumper music for that purpose?

    • Brian Mar 15, 2017 at 1:53 am #

      Thanks Jake! Sure you could use it for that – it would work great!

  14. Edwin Mar 14, 2017 at 5:20 pm #

    How many songs comes in Bumper Vol 1? or is one song in different keys ?

    • Brian Mar 15, 2017 at 2:35 am #

      Hi Edwin – each set of Bumper Music is just one song, but in all 12 keys. Thanks!

  15. Dio Mar 31, 2017 at 11:41 am #

    Hello I’m not an apple user at all. Is there ways to use this on my galaxy tab & phone? It seems every type of pads or multi tracks I m looking to use are apple supported only?! Anyone have an idea for this?! Or suggestions for android supported pads & bumper music? Thanks in advance & God bless!!!

    • Brian Oct 20, 2017 at 9:33 pm #

      Hi Dio – our Pads and Bumper Music are mp3 files, so you’re able to use them on any device/app that handles an mp3. Almost all modern phones do.

  16. ryan Apr 25, 2017 at 6:58 pm #

    I have loved using PADS in worship and the atmosphere they added for times of music and prayer, but haven’t really put much focus on other times in the service. After giving these a listen, and watching your video on how you utilize them, I was sold. I have even started using them in transition times in a small youth service and it just adds the right something to our worship. Thanks for being such a blessing to those of us lucky enough to participate in worship as leaders!

    • Brian Oct 20, 2017 at 9:19 pm #

      Thanks Ryan – glad you’re enjoying them!

  17. Mike Jun 8, 2017 at 5:57 pm #

    Hey Brian,
    When will you be coming out with some more bumper music? Love the first two but could use something new.

    • Brian Oct 20, 2017 at 9:07 pm #

      Hey Mike – our ultimate plan is to start putting out a new set of Bumper every month.

  18. Melissa Jun 29, 2017 at 11:10 pm #

    How would you loop the bumper music? We need a little longer than 3 minutes. I’ve used the pads through Small Director app, is there a way to loop it through that app? Thanks.

    • Brian Oct 20, 2017 at 8:57 pm #

      Hi Melissa – I believe that app allows you to loop.

    How to Import Pads to an Android Device? I have seen you Explanation of how to Import Pads to iOS Device, but did not find an equal possibility for my Android device.
    Do you still know one? Thanks.
