WORLD CLASS HIGHLY VERSATILE DRUM TRACKS for $299
Dominic Guss comes with nearly 40 years of experience in both session drumming AND recording engineering/production. He has performed both duties separately in various studios across the US over a relatively long period, and has worked with hundreds of artists including Tim Reynolds and Boyd Tinsley (Dave Matthews Band), Robin & Linda Williams, and Chad Wackerman, to name a few.
Make no mistake: Drumming ability is only half the battle. You can't plop your drums down in any old room and expect fantastic drum sounds, even with the best of equipment. Drums are one of the most difficult instruments to record, and ample engineering experience is key in producing the most usable sounds. The equipment utilized is just a small variable in the entire equation.
Clean, pristine, lively, highly versatile and workable drum sounds utilizing my own high end advanced "roomless" tracking and monitoring environment. This essentially removes and avoids boxy and other types of room sounds, which you would otherwise be stuck with and may not mix well with your existing tracks.
100% authentic sounds. No sample replacement or augmentation (none needed or desired)!
Straight ahead basic drumming to complex rhythms played in odd and varying time signatures with special emphasis on timing, consistency, groove, and tone. All genres.
You'll optionally have a wide variety of sought-after classic and modern overhead microphone models to choose from via a free plug-in AFTER tracking is complete and your tracks are delivered!
Various types of delivery formats available from stereo mixes to multi-mic arrays (12+) in raw format to more produced/polished forms.
