Thank you for visiting!
I'm Issaku Matsumoto, a violin player and arranger.
I have learned something since I started Music Production. It is
is that The diversity of playing techniques and the change of tone is beyond that of other instruments, and even if the technology developed to reproduce them very closely, it would be difficult to do so without programming a considerable number of parameters. Isn't it a lot of work to write the automation and the programming time? Wouldn't the sound of a real violin with a human touch help you in your creation?
I have been familiar with video games, animation, and movies since I was a child, and I loved the music that was played in many of these works. I am always impressed by the works of creators who do such work, and I get pleasure from putting my own performance in them. I have used my music for a wide variety of situations, including stock music such as audio stock, games, doujinshi works, TV commercials and dramas, and singing works.
I have recorded a wide range of genres, including classical, pop, and games, based on my many years of experience. We also accept recordings with viola and cello, string arrangements and ad-libs!
I have also been involved in the production of other movies, TV dramas, Japanese TV animations such as "When Will Ayumu Make His Move?"(On-air in Japan in 2022) and "Dark Gathering"(On-air in Japan in 2023) and the game "Final Fantasy 6 Pixel Remaster" by recording at home.
A few of my own compositions. We also record classical works. We are mainly registered on a sound source sales site called Audio Stock. Here is a video of a performance of Bach's Chaconne, a masterpiece of classical music, and my own composition in the style of an Asian folk song. Please take a look.
Please note that the video is in Japanese.
The recording data (approx. 2 min.) of Pfaffelbel's Canon is available.
Each stem file and mix data, as well as the differences between sound sources using sound absorbers and U87Ai microphones,
You can refer to a wide range of information, including your own mix as strings and envisioning the finished product.
The recording is 48kHz/24bit/442Hz, BPM90.
Soundproof Room Data
|Sound insulation class||Dr-50dB（500Hz〜）|
The sound of the violin almost never leaks out and can be recorded late at night.
A string quartet will be included.
Simple sound absorption panels on the ceiling and Vicoustic sound modulation panels on the sides are installed. This is an ideal environment for violins with moderate reverberation. In addition, Shizuka sound absorption panels can strengthen the dry environment.

We try to ensure that you can use the recording sound safely with industry standard equipment with moderate sound absorption. Recording is possible even late at night!
Here are some notes for those who wish to record in MIDI.
In many ways, recording with a score is the most efficient way to check articulation, recording points, etc., and to minimize mistakes in the sound. However, there are many people who are unfamiliar with sheet music or have difficulty preparing it in time, and we are happy to assist them.
① Be sure to prepare a stem file of the part to be used as a reference for articulation.
② MIDI files should be completely quantized as shown in the picture above.
③ If you wish to use a special technique such as Celtic, please let us know in advance.
If you have such preparations, we will be able to finish the work faster.
We do not charge for MIDI to Score if it is simple,
If it is a little more complicated, we may charge you a small fee.
Please understand this in advance.
We are happy to hear from our repeat customers that they can "leave it to us! We are also happy to receive the trust of our customers.
