I am several midi files I am looking to have mapped to real instrument samples. These midi files currently do not have drum tracks so those will have to be added manually by whoever wins the bid on this job. In addition, because the guitar chords in the midi are written to be visually interpreted and are not properly interpreted by music notation software, you may need to tweak the guitar tracks as well. You must be able to recreate by ear and have a good attention to detail as I will also be providing fully recorded professional versions of these songs with vocals that you will need to use as your guideline for the drum tracks as well as the guitar. You must also be able to master the tracks to sound as they were professionally recorded by a live band.
My preference for this production would be pro logic, however due to the limited amount of people who use this tool well, I am open to other professional tools that compare that use a professional sound bank to achieve our goals.
BONUS::::++++IF YOU CAN PLAY ANY OF THE REAL INSTRUMENTS THAT ARE NOT PIANO BASED AND CAN REPLACE THE GENERIC SAMPLES WITH THE REAL INSTRUMENTS, LETS DISCUSS WHAT THOSE ARE AND HOW THEY CAN BE INCORPORATED INTO THE MUSIC. HORNS SUCH AS TRUMPET, SAX AND TROMBONE A HUGE PLUS. ALL NOTATION IS AVAILABLE FOR INDIVIDUAL INSTRUMENTS SO THIS SHOULD BE AN EASY ADDITION FOR ANYONE WHO CAN READ MUSIC FOR THEIR GIVEN INSTRUMENTS.
As part of the interview process, you will be asked to reproduce 30 seconds of a midi file I will provide to you in order to get a sample of what you can do. Once this is completed I will decide if I want the file completed. There are about 30 total files I want done in total but each one will be treated individually.
PRICE LISTED IS PER SONG, NEGOTIABLE AND IS BASED ON QUALITY OF WORK AND THE EXPERIENCE OF WORKING WITH YOU(CUSTOMER SERVICE COUNTS!!!!)
Lastly the person that gets this job must have some flexibility in re-visioning so that the files can be completed to my specification. I will try to provide as much detail up front for what I want for the file to be completed however based on what we both hear, there may be changes needed to be made to your first versions delivered. Most of the work is already provided in the midi limiting the amount of guesswork needed to complete the file.
The outputs expected are:
1. mp3 versions of the file when providing proof. When revised and completed, the following will also be required:
2. WAV file of completed file
3. Updated Midi file if changes are made to accommodate the Guitar playing properly and addition of Drum Tracks
4. Proprietary file for the program used to complete the production. For example, if you did this in pro logic, I would need the pro logic file uploaded to an online location where I can download the file so I can make further modifications to the file after if I so choose. The goal is to be able to replace these instruments with real ones at some point in the future so that needs to be provided along with a list of all instruments used in the sampling of the song from the sound banks you used so I can have them reproduced locally. I also intend to professionally lay vocals onto the track later so the file created must be fully portable to allow for me to be able to do that on my end.
