without huge studio costs
Just imagine, when you’re working on a game or a film, having access to not only a composer, but also a full-blown, prestigious symphony orchestra that’ll do an exceptional job recording all the music you need.
All this without huge studio costs, no risk of prolonged recording sessions and not having to find a convenient date for everyone involved.
Now it’s all possible thanks to SYNAXIS MUSIC!
Since 2016 we've been successfully producing multitrack orchestral recordings in our studio – using the SYNAXIS Sound Capture technique.
SYNAXIS Sound Capture?
SYNAXIS Sound Capture is our innovative combination of traditional sound recording methods with the possibilities available with technological advancement. Inspired by the film industry, we've developed methods similar to those utilized in film production i.e. “green screen” or “motion capture”.
Single recorded tracks can be placed anywhere in the stereo field in the same way as an actor, recorded using green screen, can be placed in any setting. This enables us to create full orchestral recordings.
Furthermore, the samples we use in our productions are modelled to mimic the performances of professional musicians, just like when “motion capture” is used in animations to copy an actor’s movements.
SYNAXIS MUSIC recordings made?
We start by creating a model of the music, a so called “midi- mockup” made using world class orchestral sample libraries.
Together with the producer, we introduce any necessary changes, corrections or modifications.
When the music meets everyone’s expectations it’s time to record the professional musicians.
We record each musician separately.
The orchestral samples are left in place as part of the final recording if the sound needs to be enhanced or deepened.
The recordings are placed in acoustic spaces using convolution reverbs.
We mix the tracks to achieve the effect of a traditional, prestigious symphonic orchestra recording.
Does this technique work?
SYNAXIS MUSIC has been producing recordings for Tomplay LLC from Switzerland for three years. Some of the orchestral productions we've created for them include:
- A. Vivaldi's Four Seasons,
- J.S. Bach's Double Violin Concerto,
- S. Rachmaninoff's Piano Concerto no. 2,
- P. Tchaikovsky's Violin Concerto,
- A. Dvorak's Cello Concerto in B Minor.
All the above were created in our studio using the SYNAXIS Sound Capture technique.
SYNAXIS MUSIC has also produced the string section recordings found on albums such as Zbigniew Wodecki's „Dobrze że jesteś” or the compilation released for PKO Bank's 100th anniversary, featuring artists such as Edyta Górniak, Grzegorz Markowski, Beata Kozidrak, Igor Herbut, Kuba Badach, Natalia Szroeder and Sławek Uniatowski.
