I've got a two fold question.
I really wasn't sure where to post it so I hope this is ok.
I've written some 'film score' type music that I'm getting a "MOFO" violinist around to help record.
So far I have the parts all down as a full orchestra in MIDI, and i'm trying to work out what bits need replacing/masking by the live player to make it sound the best it possibly can.
I'm not massively worried about the actual recording technique,
Although welcome any suggestions
I'm more worried about how the flow will go on the day,
What should I try to plan ahead with to help things go smoothly, from a recording and production perspective?
So far i'd planned on having a CD of the MIDI sent to her early with a copy of the charts.
Obviously on recording day I'll be setup and ready to go with levels checked with a music stand and headphones setup comfortably in the room I want to record in, well before the player arrives.
Any help with preperation or tips from anyone who's recorded a string player in this setting to overdub many parts with the one player would be most appreciated
