About us

4 Orchestra di Roma DSC01004 resizeSud Ovest records a company operating in the music recording field was born to offer musicians and producers a structure able to insure the maximum technical and artistic quality by carrying out all the steps, thanks to the experience built during 40 years of recording and production.
Our company’s organization permits to follow the musical project step by step in order to achieve a perfect final product, both technically and artistically speaking.
The matured experience allows us to organize and record any type of musical project, from classical music to soundtracks and recording production. Our point of strength is the recording where the orchestra has a fundamental role, taking care of all the phases of the production such as, in the case of soundtracks, playbacks, preproduction with electronic instruments and rhythmic, copying, recording of the orchestra, contributing therefore to the safeguard and preserving of the musical quality.

Whenever we are asked to organize and realize a soundtrack or whatever musical project, we take care of the whole process, choosing the best musicians and soloists according to the composer’s needs.
This applies not only in Italy but also abroad.
In case of projects with orchestras, we can also arrange the recording in Sofia (Bulgaria) when, due to either economical or artistic aspects, it is suggested not to record in Italy.
We have been operating in Sofia since 1992 where we have recorded more than 300 soundtracks and other musical projects.
The July 2013 agreement with the Bulgarian National Radio and its symphonic orchestra allows us to have an orchestra which does not need to be introduced as existing since 60 years it is one of the most known in Europe. The symphonic orchestra is composed by 95 elements, the Big Band Orchestra, a 80 elements choir and treble voices. The technical quality is also very accurate as recording is done in the Auditorium of the Bulgarian National Radio which can contain as much as 200 musicians.
The Auditorium has a top of the art technical direction equipment.
