miK composes in Sibelius music notation software. Once the score is written, the score and parts can be printed to rehearse with live performers, if budgets and schedules allow for that level of production. Otherwise, miK exports the score into a MIDI file, which is then opened in Reason synthesizer software and realized by her in that program, with samples and effects assigned to each instrument in the score. The realization is then saved as WAV files, which are synced to the film using Vegas video and audio production software. The mix is finalized in Vegas as well, with minor adjustments made to audio levels to accommodate for dialogue as needed. The final mix has the capacity to sound like acoustic instruments, if desired.
