Full string sections multitracked violin, viola and cello for $180

Full string sections multitracked violin, viola and cello for $180

I use a range of microphones and instruments (violin, viola and cello), multitracking to form complete string sections, small ensembles and string quartets. I can work from score, midi or just audio. I have my own dedicated and acoustically treated studio, with a pair of good quality large diaphragm condenser mics and Avalon Vt737sp pre-amp. I can provide fully edited dry 24bit audio files of each pass in a range of sample rates.
The following is intended as a guide only, please message me if you'd like to discuss your project in detail. I aim to reply within 24 hours. The price is for one track up to 5 minutes in length with up to 2 revisions. As an example my usual format for standard full strings is 4 x cellos, 4 x viola, 5 x second violin, 5 x first violin. Although this is entirely flexible according to the needs of the track, and additional sections / divisi, up to a maximum of 25 tracks, will be included at no extra cost as required. Please ask for a custom quote if your project is larger than this, also if you only require one section (e.g. just first violins). Also if you have a large project with multiple tracks I'd be happy to discuss a lower per track price. Most of my work on this site is arranged through custom offers.
I have 30 years live and recording experience, the majority working as a professional session string player. I have eight years experience doing remote on-line sessions and have numerous European and American film, TV, game soundtrack, library music and album credits. I regularly work for a number of producers and artists including award winning composers Richard G Mitchell (Royal society of television award), Ian Livingstone (Ivor Novello) and David Mitcham (Emmy).

    Rick is great to deal with, and delivered a great set of strings in good time. A very highly recommended Airgig!

  13. Review By: PercyT Oct 16, 2018

    Rick is simply brilliant. Rick absorbed every nuance of an existing piece and took it to another level. I felt as if Rick was in the same studio with me, even though we were literally thousands of miles apart. Rick is a master musician and composer. He brings emotion and imagination to your work that you never thought possible. Outstanding! I will work with Rick again, again and again.

    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.

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

  37. 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!

    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!

    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!

    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!

  51. Review By: MikeBurns Jun 2, 2017

    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!
