Rogue Violin on SoundBetter

Oberlin Conservatory violinist with 25 years of performance experience, I specialize in recording melody driven string tracks and acoustic/electro-acoustic mixing. A queer studio owner committed to nurturing diverse & creative spaces for artists, I'm happy to offer sliding scale prices for folx!

ABOUT ME: Founder of Rogue Violin Studios, I've toured throughout the US, UK, Mexico, France, Italy & Brazil. I am accepting clients for tracking, mixing and original compositions.

VIOLIN TRACKS: I specialize in recording and composing soundscapes/textures, melody driven scores and improv, and virtuosic shredding with effect pedals.

Set-up 1: Early 1900's acoustic violin from Philadelphia, warm and rich tones. Depending on project, will often use either an AEA 84 Ribbon Mic, Telefunken FT11 or AKG451 paired with either a WA-73 EQ or True Systems P2 high fidelity preamp.

Set-up 1: An electric-acoustic set-up with an Eric Aceto pick-up designed installed in the bridge itself for a clean, warm signal which I run through a variety of amps/effect pedals.

MIXING/RECORDING: I use ProTools as my primary DAWS for mixing and recording, and AbeltonLive for producing and arranging. Because of the diversity of projects I've toured and performed with combined with my audio engineering studio experience, I offer unique insight and love new challenges!

  1. Review by Christopher D.

    I think Samantha is brilliant! She elevated the track I sent her to a level I couldn't have imagined. Also worth mentioning, she records with very high quality equipment and responds to messages very quickly! I couldn't recommend her more.

    Well she's done it again!The brief was to play a Violin Melody replacing the vocal melody on my Pop/Rock song and wow did it come out great.Rogue is a 100% talent and her violin performances are inspirational.On the Production side their was no work left to do ,the recordings were perfect.If you have a project that requires the best violinist then Rogue is who you need.Im looking forward to working with her again soon.
