Trackdown is a one-stop shop for your film scoring needs. Trackdown's experienced team of score co-ordinators can book all aspects of your project including studio, engineers, studio personnel, players, conductor, additional equipment, choirs, orchestrators and copyists. Trackdown can facilitate in studio recordings or remote recordings via Source Connect X which offers live streaming of a 5.1 desk mix of your score, Audio Movers and/or Zoom. We also offer music editorial by an MPSE award winning team and mix services.
Some important advantages to scoring in Australia:
Musicians are a total buy-out with no residuals
Players can overdub during the same session
Players can be booked in 3 or 4 hour sessions
A maximum of 3 x 3 hour sessions can be done in 1 day
If you are doing Source Connect sessions from LA the time difference means you start recording in your afternoon and finish late at night; and when you wake in the morning, the edited files are delivered and ready to mix, which takes advantage of a 24 hour work day.
Scoring During Covid:
Current social distancing requirements mean that players are spaced 1.5 metres apart (4ft 11")
All players are given their own music stand
Source Connect, Audio Movers and Zoom connection methods are available to join sessions from remote locations
