Recording & Producing Fees January 2010
We basically charge according to the amount of work involved.
Fine for archival work. A pair of world-class microphones channeled into a 24 bit recorder, then burned to a CD or high-resolution DVD. A pair of microphones will basically create a high quality record of your performance and reveal what a listener fifteen feet away would really hear. Practical for any kind of performance.
Alternatively, we will record the concert to a hard disk recorder, then master the CD using audiophile software.
Four matched microphones are positioned according to your orchestra or ensemble. This gives a great deal of flexibility at mixdown, and allows a wide variety of post production techniques to improve the sound of the recording. Excellent for presentation copies, grant proposals, and compensating for a less than ideal acoustic. Excellent for chorus as well.
Multiple Main and Spot microphones are positioned to capture every detail of the performance. Ideal for larger ensembles, chamber orchestras and full orchestras, or where the highest quality is required.
Large Orchestra Setup
Up to thirty-six (more than enough) microphones are used. For large orchestras and/or choruses where the absolute highest quality is required
