In both the Strings and Symphonic packages, the following types of Stems are delivered:
These are stems for the instrument group or family, such as the group High Strings (violins 1, violins 2, violas) or Low Woodwinds (Bass clarinet and bassoon) .
These are stems for each individual recorded musician. We include them when there are solo lines within a section (as opposed to a soloist part mentioned below). You will be able to discuss which are the relevant parts in the briefing meeting with the conductor. Each part is delivered in the three mic positions.
Soloists, Voice, Percussion or Keyboard Parts
Our service does not create or generate any soloists, percussion or keyboard parts using virtual instruments. We can accept and process your recordings of these parts when you upload them. Our service does not currently accept voice recordings.
