Music Engraving is the art of transferring hand written music into a form that can be used in print or on the web. You may hear it referred to as “Music Processing”, but we prefer the older term “Engraving” if only to separate ourselves from the legions of musicians who rely almost exclusively on the default templates and settings of the software they choose to use, which more often than not comes pre-configured for ease of use of the operator rather than optimal results for the publisher.
Advances in technology and manufacturing, combined with falling costs associated with international trade and shipping have resulted in many tuition books being supplied with a cover-mounted CD or DVD these days. Whether it’s backing tracks or musical examples played at different speeds, someone has to plan, write, record and produce the audio.
We couldn’t claim to be a complete music publishing solution without being able to offer audio. Rather than blather on about what we can do, we think it’s probably better if you listen to some examples of music that was written, performed and recorded by Digital Music Art:
Do you need illustrations of effects pedals? Mixing channels with various EQ settings? Amp settings showing distortion, EQ and reverb settings? We have the skills required to produce musical diagrams of all types for both print and web.
Our experience in publishing means that we can ensure that the files you need are print ready. There won’t be any holdups due to fonts not being supplied or being of the wrong type. The files we supply are fully compatible with any modern publishing workflow.
With many, many hundreds of publications behind us, you can rest assured that we will deliver to the agreed deadline. If it’s your first venture into the realm of music publishing, we’ll be glad to help ensure it’s smooth and hassle free.
We can deliver electronically in almost any format you require. We can also provide issue tracking services combined with delivery if you wish to build in proofing services with external contributors or editors.
