Orchestral Stem-Production Service
Live production quality at low cost
Your journey with us consists of four steps:
1. THE BRIEF
2. THE PRODUCTION
3. YOUR FEEDBACK
1. The Brief
- CREATE A CLICK/BACKING TRACK
- PREPARE YOUR SCORE
The general principle for sending us your composition is simple: prepare a notated score as if you were going to deliver it for session musicians to sight-read and record. This means the score should contain:
– all parts for which music is composed
– all tempo markings in BPM with a metronome number
– all phrasing, all dynamics and all articulations
– all performance timing instructions (ritenuto, accel. etc.)
– each instrument must be notated individually onto their own part. For example, Flute 1 and Flute 2, or Horn 1 and Horn 2, must each be on their own separate part, and similarly, Violin 1 and Violin 1 Divisi must each be on their own separate part.
– use the conventional instruments’ order for the score
You can read more about this process here.
PLACE AN ORDER
Click on Place an Order and follow the instructions to select your package, indicate the duration of your piece and complete the payment.
UPLOAD YOUR SCORE
Once we received your order, we will send you
– a link to upload your score and click/backing track; you can also send us optional audio files, e.g., percussion, soloist’s recording, etc., if you want to receive them back as stems processed in the same acoustic space and using the same format (close, tree, surround) as your strings/orchestral stems (important: make sure the audio files you send us are close and dry).
