Get Custom Violin or Fiddle Tracks
If you have any questions about the information below, don't hesitate to contact us. Please send over an email before submitting any files so we can give you an estimated turnaround time. If your production schedule is tight, we want to make sure that you get your fiddle or violin tracks in time.
Create a guide mix of your song which includes all the tracks that you plan to keep in your final mix. If the vocal track is a scratch, mix it a little lower than you would for your final mix to avoid pitch or timing conflicts with the new violin or fiddle tracks.
Please include your "count in" click, or have some audible
cue in your guide mix before the song starts. We will embed that count in click on all the finished
tracks so that you can accurately line them up with your
existing mix. When you have the final tracks in place you can erase these markers.
Compress your guide mix to an mp3 or Apple M4A or AAC to email, or you can FTP the full resolution WAV or AIFF using your preferred file transfer service.
To email your compressed file, please send it to the contact link in the top menu. In the e-mail message itself, please indicate the following:
- Tempo in BPM (beats per minute) if applicable.
- File format you want to get back (WAV or AIFF)
- Bit resolution - 16 or 24 bit and 44.1, 48, 88.2 or 96 KHz
- Tuning if other than A 440
- Arrangement instructions if you have something specific in mind.
Got Your New Violin or Fiddle Track Back?
After you're satisfied and approve the finished tracks, you will receive a link to download the new tracks.
Consult your software documentation for instructions on importing audio files to tracks and
nudging or sliding them into position.
After you have imported the violin or fiddle tracks, line up the start point for all the new string tracks and slide or nudge them so that the count in click or audio cue on the string tracks line up with the same click or cue in your existing session. Zoom is to do this visually and also listen for flanging, this indicates that they are locked.
If you have any other specific questions please feel free to contact us.
