Our Five Step Process

We produce the full score of the arrangements for your production, with all instruments required. This process will generally take around two weeks. We will present you with computer-generated backing tracks so that you can review keys, tempos and structure. After any adjustments are made, we will provide you with updated backing tracks which you can use for your rehearsals.

Once you are happy with the format, keys and tempos of the arrangements, We will start producing the tracks, using a perfect blend of live musicians and samples to produce your tracks. The recording process generally takes 2-3 weeks. For the best balance in quality and cost-effectiveness, we generally record the following instruments using live musicians:

  1. Drums, Basses, Guitars
  2. Solo stringed instruments
  3. Brass and woodwind instruments
  4. Most percussion instrument
  5. Vocalists

At this point, we will send you a ‘rough mix’ of your tracks for your approval.

We will complete the final mix of your tracks. This process will take up to two weeks in our professional mixing room.

Once the process is complete, we will deliver your final tracks and sheet music to you, either electronically or via a site visit to check mixes if requested.
