Composing & Arranging

Sometimes you want to add that little something special that will really make a song come to life. Whether adding rich orchestral string sounds, a 3-horn Jazz Soli or a solo cello to accompany a warm guitar/vocal ballad, orchestration and arrangement is the best way to get it done. Keyboards and plugins have made anyone capable of quickly adding a sound emulating real instruments but NOTHING compares to music written and arranged by a seasoned arranger.

We combine old-world arranging skills utilizing working all of the arrangements out by hand (pen and paper!), transferring the arrangement into a digital realm via software (Sibelius) and then integrating it into the existing recording session. This allows for giving you a great representation of what it could possibly sound like without the cost of hiring musicians to play examples for you every time. This way we keep costs down and give you a hyper-realistic example of your song using high-end instrument plugins by IK Multimedia, Spectrasonics, Native Instruments, Spitfire, etc.
