Get Custom Violin or Fiddle Tracks
Here's what to do. If you have any questions at all, don't hesitate to contact me. Please send over an email before submitting a file so I can give you an estimated turnaround time. As production schedules can be tight sometimes I want to make sure that you get your tracks in time.
Create a mix of your song, please try to include all the tracks that you plan to keep so that there are no potential conflicts between your parts and the new tracks. If the vocal track is a scratch, mix it a little lower than you would for your final mix to avoid pitch problems.
To make sure my tracks and your tracks lock in perfect sync, please mix in your "count in" click, or have some audible
cue in the mix before the song starts. I'll print that click on all the finished
tracks so that you can accurately line them up with your
mix. When you have the final tracks in place you can erase these markers.
Convert your mix to an mp3. If your recording software doesn't have this feature, you can download numerous freeware and shareware file converters from the internet. I recommend iTunes for Mac or PC .
Attach the mp3 to an e-mail and send it to efiddler at efiddler dot com. 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) 16 or 24 bit
- 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 and
payment is completed, 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 on the click or count, this indicates that they are locked.
