It's always been a dream of mine to hire a live orchestra for a project I'm involved in! Unfortunately though, unless you run a huge studio with an ENORMOUS budget, hiring a live orchestra is a massive financial undertaking that's usually well out of reach for most projects. We're talking a minimum of $100/hour (NZD) per player, and that's not accounting for venue hire fees, conductor fees, the cost of hiring a mixing engineer, the cost of producing sheet music for all the players... As you can probably tell, it all adds up very fast.
Don't despair though! If you really need an orchestral score for your project, we can still get very close to the sound of a real orchestra thanks to the increasing quality of modern virtual instrument libraries. Plus, recording a handful of session musicians and layering them alongside those virtual instruments can breathe so much life into a piece of music, and it's also a much more financially-viable route to take for most projects. If we find that your budget has room for a few live musicians, we can definitely make some magic happen.
