Great Drum with feeling, time and great sound! for $75
Hello, my name is Dario Esposito, drummer with different collaborations with many artists and songwriter, rock groups, and jazz bands in Italy, endorser Ludwig, Paiste, Remo, Vic Firth & Roland. All these collaborations gave me the opportunity to play in some of the best venues around the world, as big theatres, auditoriums, stadiums, and many recording studios, including the Village Studios of Los Angeles.
After 25 years of experience I ststarted to record by myself my drum performances for artists, producers and composers from my studio, with a great room sound, the best new and vintage instruments in the market and only top microphones and Class A preamps.
I love recording my drums and enhance the tracks of the artist I work with.
During this process for me is fundamental entering with mind and body in the mood of the song. I choose the right setup, with a extreme importance in the tuning, and on creating che right sound for the track. The choice and position of the microphones is also foundamental. If required I do drum arrangiaments for the tracks I have to play on.
I always sand an mp3, and if all is ok I send all the drum track up to 18 trakcs at 44.1 Kz to 192 Kz with Pro Tools12 or Logic Prox. The drums sounds still great and mostly don't need to be edited. Editing not included. One or 2 version per track. If necessary, 2 revisions included.
