PROFESSIONALLY RECORDED & ENGINEERED DRUM TRACKS for $150
Getting the drums to sit in the mix and punch is both science and art. With over 25 years of playing experience as a skilled drummer and over 10 years experience as an audio engineer I am passionate about recording drums. This service includes professionally recorded and engineered drum tracks to your liking, and I will be providing my clients with 44.1 Khz/ 24-bit or 88.2 Khz /24- bit individual wav files of the multitracked drum session.
My tailored approach to recording drums is to get the kit sounding good ( install fresh heads/ careful tuning of the kit) in the room, and then utilize specific microphone choices and placement on the drums to capture the nuances and tones of the kit in a balanced and clear way.
After I record the drum tracks, I will utilize my engineering knowledge to hone in on the individual tracks of the recording and optimize each one, so that every single piece of the kit works with the whole. This includes sample accurate phase alignment of the drums, minor eq adjustments, light compression, and also exciting ( harmonic saturation) to give your tracks that polished and mix ready sound for your production.
If you prefer to mix the tracks yourself I can provide you with dry/unprocessed individual wav files for all the multitracked drums. I will still phase align the drums in order to avoid phase cancellation/comb filtering on the tracks, giving you the best possible starting point for eq, compression, ect.
