Virtual Orchestrations

We can create high-quality virtual orchestrations of your compositions, suitable for TV, portfolio, and movie productions. These aim to sound realistic, or cinematic, suitable for transmission or portfolio submission.

  • Piano
  • Orchestras
  • String Orchestras
  • Most World Instruments - contact us for details
  • Full Choirs
  • Full Cinematic Hybrid Scores
  • More! Contact us and we'll work something out!

Note that the greater the number of instruments and the greater attention to detail that is required, the corresponding fee will be higher. If it's a simple track, with something like a piano the fee will be much lower than for a full orchestral score.

Please contact us for more information on creating mockups or high-quality tracks for you or your company.
