Session Name:

Strategies for Preventing (or Rescuing) a Lousy Orchestral Recording Session


Composers sometimes spend precious project resources on live orchestral recording sessions. This lecture will feature music orchestrator and composer Sandy Schnieders sharing several tips and tricks on how to get the best results from your orchestral recording session, and will follow the entire planning and recording process from start to finish. She will cover what to do when the recorded tracks you've received have problems, and if the orchestra had pitch or performance issues that day. This lecture will also feature legendary score music engineer John Rodd diving deep into his specialized mixing strategies for how he rescued and brought to life a live orchestral recording.
