When programming the track we use an extensive array of high quality sample libraries that will cover all of your sonic needs. We feel comfortable with any approach our clients need whether the recording is live, programmed or a blend of both.
Songwriting We can write the song or co-write the song with the artist. We also can write and arrange a song that is at a piano / vocal level.
