Get Better Recordings
Most of the time, recording cello and strings can be very difficult. Let alone typical performance issues of tone, intonation, and rhythm, cello can be a particular challenge to mix well. Especially with loud modern music, because the sound of the instruments is very complex and even noisy, trying to make cello audible can be it doesn't sound very listenable. Boosting the bass can cause woofing problems, and taming the harsh highs can lead to muddy or overly-processed sounding parts. I've solved that issue and more.
Features of Recording With Me
1. Studio quality sound - quiet and clear
2. The benefit of a real tube preamp to sound like it's been through a real board (a natural mic is used too)
3. Easy-to-mix arrangements, sensitive to the frequency spectrum of the project
4. Style tailored to your piece - can send any reference track to match
5. No need to edit anything, and easy to load
6. Unique improvisation ability for 20th century popular music forms
7. Small or large string ensemble size (cost scales with amount of required overdubs)
8. Mixing and mastering option if you have a string-only composition
Finally, I feel it's helpful to say I'm very interested in wave physics and how that affects music production. As such, I like to think my parts are uniquely effective at helping a production come to fruition through cello parts that enhance the total resonance of the song. This influences everything from room setup, mic'ing, gain stage, arrangement, performance, and guaranteed phase alignment between section parts.

Want Great Cello Samples?
A custom sample library I recorded with the engineer Philip Zach is now out! You can use it to save time with backing parts, compose cello for recording, or novel sound design, to supplement my recordings or just explore the cello sound first.
