funny you should ask, in the electric forum under "what pedals are you using", somebody posted the link to this. Although it's not my thing, personally, it looks pretty darn cool....

I don't know about 'real easy', but there are several options:

PG Music makes a product called 'Band In A Box' with a complimentary product called 'Real Band' that if you supply a chord chart (typed in) and the style in which you want the chart to be played out.  http://www.pgmusic.com/  Some convincing music can be generated with these products.

A totally different option is to buy the backing tracks.  Many different sources for these.  Simply google search 'High Quality Backing Tracks'.

You could buy a simple loop station but you may not be interested in that route either beings that you werent interested in the helicon.

Garageband, a program that comes standard on a mac cpu, may be another option. You could go in and pre-record the backing tracks and run your cpu through the system.

I think so - not sure.  It's not going to be an easy entry into this whole world of PC recording - just an FYI.  Very helpful forum, but unless you are really ready to go after doing this, I would suggest buying from one of the Karaoke sites or other.
