Professional Drum Tracking Studio
I’m pleased to offer high-quality, affordable, multi-channel custom drum tracks for your recording from my fully-equipped, professional recording studio.
Any decent recording engineer will tell you that while mic placement, gain structure, and use of equipment is important, the most critical aspect of recording is the source. One can have all the top-end gear in the world, but in order to make a truly great recording, you need players who get a big, musical sound, great time, and the experience and savvy to make the right musical decisions. I draw upon three decades of experience in (and out of) the studio, and over a decade in my own studio, to bring an approach to your music that is solid, versatile and musical.
How It Works
You’ll send me:
-An audio file or set of stems of your track for me to play to (WAV or AIFF are the preferred formats), along with an exact tempo marking (or tempo map if it changes)
-Bit depth/sample rate info of your track: up to 24 bit, 96khz
-A PDF or JPG of a chart of the song, when applicable (always appreciated to expedite things)
After I record my initial tracks, I’ll send you a rough-mix mp3 of what I recorded, then if adjustments to the performance or sound (if applicable) are needed/requested, I’ll finish the process. After you give final approval and I then receive final payment, I’ll immediately upload the tracks to a file-sharing site for you to retrieve.
