Learn how to record a live string section in this informative new tutorial by expert audio engineer, Clint Murphy, at Modern World Recording...
Violins, violas, celli and double basses. Imagine having the opportunity to record a live string section: Where do you begin? In this step-by-step tutorial, produced by the experts at Sing Canary, you'll see and hear everything you need to know to setup, mic and record strings.

Recording orchestral instruments is an art that requires precise setup, positioning and knowledge of acoustics. It also requires you to understand the way these instruments produce sound. This tutorial explains the precise microphone positioning needed to bring out the rich tones these classical instruments produce.

Once the section is recorded, you're taken back into the studio for a look at EQ, compression and mixing techniques. From there you'll also learn about overdubbing techniques that transform small ensembles into full string orchestras.

Every engineer has to be ready for any recording situation. This tutorial, Recording Strings , gives you the foundation you need to create awesome sounding orchestral sessions.
