CELLO TRACKING

 

My session work takes place in a dedicated sound treated room in my quiet, semi-rural home. These are the cello recording services I offer:

  • Recording of solo or ensemble cello parts for an audio or audio-visual project

  • Recording of overdubs for an audio or audio-visual project

  • Improvisation or writing of cello parts

 

What You Can Expect

You will receive 3 separate audio stems for each recorded part: 1 close mic capture, and a left and right room capture. 

Once parts have been recorded, mp3 stems will be sent for you to listen to in isolation and with your project. If you are completely satisfied with the recordings, uncompressed stems in your preferred format and a signed release form (if required) will be sent on receipt of payment, which can be made via bank transfer or PayPal.

If not, adjustments can be made according to your specific requirements. The agreed price for a session includes an additional hour of recording time specifically for revisions. Any revision work that can't be completed during this time will be subject to an agreed fee increase.

What I'll Need from You

The following files (audio files can be mp3 or wav):

  • Main mix without cello part

  • Cello part/s - please send separate stems for more than one part and ensure that they line up with the main mix

  • PDF score or midi file of cello part - optional for simple parts, but necessary for complex parts.

  • Performance directions are your call - I'm happy to work with detailed directions and equally happy to put my own interpretive spin on the part if you prefer.

  • If the track is the same tempo throughout, please just provide the BPM on the score or in your additional notes if you have any

  • If there are tempo changes, please include a click track or midi export containing all tempo and meter data
