Prices based on an average 3 minute song and includes studio time. Nothing extra to pay.

All tracks are recorded separately with different instruments, guaranteeing no doubling or phasing.

How many strings??

Ian can record as few or as many strings as you like. For example:

  • Medium size ensemble
    • 10 violins (5 x 1st violins, 5 x 2nd violins), 2 violas, 2 cellos & double bass.
  • Small ensemble
    • 8 violins, 2 violas, 2 cellos & double bass if needed.
    • 4 to 8 violins on a single line, or 2 lines.
  • The classic string quartet.
  • Solo violin in any style
  • Classical, Rock, Gypsy, Jazz, Tango, Country, Irish etc.

When larger string sections are required we have a pool of orchestral session players from the Symphony.

We are extremely flexible – please tell us your ideas!

Writing the String Arrangement:

If you have string parts written or programmed, we can replace them with real strings if you send sheet music or a printout from Logic etc. Or if not, we can transcribe it, no problem.

If you have ideas about the strings in your song but have nothing programmed or written, we can write a rich, full sounding string arrangement with your ideas in mind.

For a simple improvised solo violin, viola or cello part, a written arrangement is not usually necessary.
