High quality, affordable violin and viola recording and arranging. Whether you want a single, soaring solo violin, or a lush string section, I'm your girl! I will record your string arrangements, or work with you to create the string sound you're looking for. Recording and arranging credits include Ben Harper, Chance the Rapper, and Deadmau5.
Beautifully written and performed string tracks. Performing on violin and viola, I can record anything from a single solo track to a full string ensemble for your music. I have an array of fine microphones and preamps that you can choose from, or you can let me decide on the best gear to compliment your music. I can send you clean stems to mix as you choose, or I can mix the strings for you. I look forward to working with you!

Interview with Rebecca Schlappich Charles
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: My work process really depends on what the song or project calls for. If I'm recording your arrangement, I like to familiarize myself with the song before I get to work. If I'm writing an arrangement for you, sometimes I'll work in Sibelius first to compose the parts, and other times I'll work straight to Protools, brainstorming and recording ideas that I'll later refine to create the finished string arrangements.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: My studio is called Little Lake Sound. I work in Protools and use an Apollo Quad Thunderbolt 8 channel interface. I also love using my CAPI, Trident, and TL Audio preamps. My favorite mics in our collection for strings are the Stam 47, which is a Neumann clone, AKG c214, and MXL ribbon mic.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: First and foremost, I'm always inspired by my clients and the amazing artists I have the privilege to work with on a daily basis. It is such and honor to be asked to be a part of someone's musical creation! Additionally, I have recently been on a film composer kick. I love listening to the music of Danny Elfman, Ennio Morricone, Alan Silvestri, John Williams, Hans Zimmer, and Hildur Guðnadóttir
