Solo violin performance, recording and editing for $70

In Violin, Viola, Cello 100% Guarantee By rickcurran

Solo violin performance, recording and editing for $70

Session violinist, violist and cellist with 30 years studio and live experience.
The service price is for performance, recording, editing and sending one track of solo violin, either to a part already written or improvised/arranged by me. Depending on the nature of the piece I will endeavour to send up to three takes/interpretations, and will record up to 3 revisions per track.
Credits include: TV(UK, USA, Europe), video game scores, films, library music, including work for award winning composers Ian Livingstone, Richard G Mitchell and David Mitcham. Album credits include Bert Jansch, Steve Tilston, Maggie Boyle, Corner shop, as well as playing sessions alongside Albert Lee, Dave Pegg, Dave Mattacks and many others.
I have a range of instruments and microphones in my own dedicated, acoustically damped studio. I use an Avalon Vt737sp pre-amp and pro-tools. I am able to work from audio, midi, score or improvise and arrange parts.
I can provide clean, edited and dry 24 bit audio files with a range of sample rates, ready to drop straight into your session.
On-line session recording constitutes most of my work so in most cases I can turn parts round very quickly.

    Excellent playing on a slightly tricky solo violin piece - challenging timing and some high notes. Thanks for taking the time and effort to get feedback guidance and make another take. Good quality clean recordings.

    Absolutely perfect service from Rick. He was extremely prompt and communicative, explaining his methods and how he layers, very receptive to revision notes, and got what I was going for despite my somewhat limited musical terms.
    And the tracks sound incredible. He delivered a full stereo mix, section stems, and even the individual tracks of every take. Both the performance and the audio capture are great.
    Really amazing work. Won't even bother looking elsewhere next time I need strings.

    The experience I had working with Richard couldn't be any better, music and communication wise.
    He is an incredible professional: Fantastic musician who just sight-reads your score and puts his heart in the music. The fact, that he is such a great and friendly person makes the collaboration even better. I will definitively come back, highly recommended !!! Thank you so much !

    I've recorded with many great string players and arrangers, including SO working musicians. Rick followed the brief perfectly and played beautifully. No changes or amendments, Rick delivered the performance first time around. Highly recommended.

    A great performance and excellent recording! I would highly recommend Rick for your string recording needs!

  13. Review By: MikeBurns Nov 14, 2017

    Exceptional Violinists are relatively common in this world, but it's a much rarer find to discover a world class violist. Rick is such a violist. I never have to worry about even minor revisions when working with Rick. He nails the part first time every time. My engineers love his work too because they don't have to dedicate time to editing his parts.

    It was a great jorney to the world of orchestral music, which unfortunately ended. I am infinitely grateful to Richard for the work done! A rare combination of human qualities and impeccable mastery of the performance of complex works is what Richard is gifted with. Thank you, maestro once again! To be continued!

    Another one great performance has been done by Richard! Richard is a brilliant, briliant musician! This is a real orchestra recorded by one man. All the stems are having superb quality. No needs to edit them. A highly recommended orchestra service!!!

    Amazing work! Richard's viola solo on our song is just perfect. It's such a pleasure to work with him. Richard was highly involved in our project, he is creative, fast, reactive, flexible, professional, comes up with new ideas, recording sound quality is excellent... and final result sounds just great.
    Anybody looking for strings recording can contact him without hesitation. Highly recommended!

    Rick did a great job not only supplying strings, but also making sure that my arrangement actually made sense. Something which definitely benefitted the song. Hope to work together again soon!

    This is the eighth song for which Richard recorded a string orchestra. Every time I anticipate a pleasant surprise before listening the rough mix and every time Richard is great in sound production, dynamics and creative approach. And despite the fact that we speak different languages, Richard is able to feel the music so much, and sometimes I think that there is only one language - music. Thank you, Sir Richard for your invaluable contribution to art!

    Every time I work on my music with Richard, I'm sure that something unusual and magical will turn out. I really appreciate what Richard does for my music. This is such a happiness when the composer finds a performer of this level. Thank you, Sir Richard, for your work!

    I am very grateful to you, Sir Richard for the magic that you use when working on my music. Your experience is especially valuable for my case, namely making a score for an entire orchestra from a MIDI track. At the same time, you felt my music so much, and brought me to the mean male tears. I should note that you revived my song using all your orchestral techniques, which I do not understand at all, but completely trust you. Once again, thank you, maestro for your performance and soul!

    Awesome work! Richard did an amazing job recording a full string section for one of our song. Recording quality was excellent. Richard is extremely professional, reactive, creative and easy to deal with... It was a real pleasure working with him and I highly recommend him.

    Rick really came through for me with a 10 out of 10 layered viola performance with a perfectly played very difficult long viola solo. You can find a talented violinist easily enough, but finding a violist who's got great tone AND technique capable of playing Paganini level fast runs is a truly rare find. Excellent recording quality and perfectly dry individually sent tracks that my engineer will have all the flexibility in the world mixing and adding convolution reverb to later. Well done Rick!

    ************************* - my rate for Richard!
    This is the second song I recorded with Richard Curran's Orchestra).
    Richard is very talented, but I want to say that a brilliant musician,
    subtly feeling music. Very accurate sound production! I got
    Source files - 42 tracks !, which in fact do not require post-processing.
    Let's continue, I decided!

    Thank you so much man!
    Cheers
