Online Session Cello Recordings: Everything You Need To Know

All of these tracks were recorded by Bryan at the Bryan Wilson Cello Studio

One of my favorite things that I do at Bryan Wilson Cello studio is record cello for artists across the globe. Film composers, singer-songwriters, video game makers, dancers, animators, and more, I do it all. So here is everything you need to know about getting the best cello recordings for your project.

  1. What do I Need from You?

    • A mix of the song

    • The BPM of the song

    • Music Notation and or MIDI of cello part.

      • If you don’t have a cello part and want me to write a line for you, that’s totally cool as well, that’s my specialty.

    • Directions as to what you envision for the cello part, where you want it, and the feeling/character behind it

  2. What do I Use to Record?

    • Logic Pro X on a Macbook Pro 16GB RAM

    • MJE-v250 Large Diaphragm Condensor microphone (U87 clone)

    • API VP26 Preamp Clone

    • Focusrite Scarlett 2i2

    • Beautiful Wooden Cello made in 1920

  3. Where do I record?

    • The Bryan Wilson Cello Studio is a cozy space equipped with heavy duty sound dampening blankets to deaden room reflections and outside noise. The recordings in here sound absolutely pristine.

  4. What Will it Cost?

    • Songs and projects with up to 4 minutes of cello playing start at $150 USD. This includes 2 revisions if you want some additional changes after I send it to you.

      • Parts that are longer than 4 minutes and sessions with lots of different cello layers may cost extra, but contact me and we can discuss because I know every project is different.

    • If you are recording multiple songs/projects, we can definitely work out a package deal.

  5. How Long Will it Take?

    • I pride myself on my fast turnaround times. Generally, if you provide me with a score and/or midi, I can get things done in 2 days. If I am composing the part, it will take me 3 days.

    • I definitely will let you know about the time frame when you contact me. It could take even less time than this.

  6. What is the Process?

    • Once I have the information listed in # 1, I will get to work on the recording.

    • I will send back an .mp3 of the cello mixed into the original recording.

    • If you are happy with the result, you can send payment over to me via PayPal, Venmo, or Google Pay. If not, tell me what it is you want changed and you have up to two revisions to get it just the way you want.

    • Once payment is received, I’ll send you the .wav cello stems via WeTransfer.

I love doing online session cello recordings for clients across the globe. I strive to make sure everyone is extremely satisfied not only with my cello recordings and compositions, but with my professionalism, communication, and ease of service.
