Step 4: Production A (Recording)
The client has chosen one of three options.
1. Electronic Production
2. Live Recording
Option 1 - The cheapest option. Produced with sample libraries. Can be quite effective with managed expectations.
Option 2 - Best quality option. The score is recorded by a live orchestra in a professional studio. A 3-hour session can safely yield 20-30 minutes of music.
Option 3 - The middle road. The music is recorded with a much smaller orchestra or solo instruments, and sample libraries are used to reinforce the recorded music.
