SYMPHONOVA

Stem-Production Software Service

Hybrid Production Transformed

Our system captures the musical expression of 2-12 musicians you record,
and shapes the performance of our virtual instruments to provide you with
musically authentic stems, quickly and at an affordable price.

You want live-production quality for your orchestral score, but budget is tight?​

Want to record a full orchestral score, but budget is tight? And you don’t want to give up on the unmistakable musical quality only musicians can give to your production? Our service is designed to give you a comprehensive solution: live-production quality, quickly and at an affordable price. Depending on your score, you record 6-12 musicians, and get a full set of professional stems in a range of mic positions and instruments’ grouping. 

How do we do it?

Our software captures the musical expression of the musicians recorded to shape the expression of the virtual instruments. It’s a real breakthrough – the stems generated using this innovative method sound authentic because they are based entirely on your musicians’ expression. The whole process is rapid and affordable, and the large number and variety of stems provide you with the best ingredients for your mix.
