How this works

String and accordion tracks recorded at Fourth Floor Studio in NYC. If you prefer multiple tracks, I can record and arrange a whole string section or a quartet.

Here’s how this works in six easy steps…

1. Create a mix of your song that’s close to the final mix. Please try to include as many of the tracks that you plan on using so there is no conflict with the string parts. Put a “count in” before the tune and line it up to the beginning of the song. I’ll mix the click into my mix so that you can line the string track up with your final song mix.

2. Convert your mix into an MP3 and email it to me along with your ideas. Please try to be as specific as you can. My objective is that you get the string parts you want for your project, so don’t hesitate to communicate your ideas to me. Or leave it up to me and I’ll come up with a part to fit the track. I have a long history as a string arranger, and would be happy to write a part for your song that would complement your music.

3. Please specify your recording preferences. I’ll send you a raw WAV or AIFF at 16 or 24 bit and 44.1 or 48 kHz., recorded on high quality professional recording equipment. These files can be used in Pro Tools, Logic, Cubase, Sonar, Ableton Live or any digital recorder that can import audio files.

4. I’ll record at least two or three tracks for you to chose from. You can use these as is, or comp them together to make a final string track.

5. Next, I’ll email you an MP3 of your song with the strings mixed up high in the mix so that you can hear and approve the part. I include one free revision with the price.

6. After final approval and your PayPal payment, I’ll send you a link to download your tracks.

And that’s all there is to it!
