Appreciating the four comments so far...thanks men.
"Splicing" is a tape reference. "Comping" is more likely what someone will do for you. It's a pretty common technique that's become a lot easier to do than it was 15 years ago.

I'd suggest finding someone who can do the recording AND add the instrumentation you want. Otherwise, you'll be bouncing back and forth between people and that's not ideal. The other alternative is to find a musician to come to the studio where you're recording and lay down tracks. That can add up quickly.
