Are you looking for a drummer to record for you single, EP or album ? Well this is something I am doing since 2015, and I did over 60 albums during the past 7 years. So how does it work ? What kind of files do I provide ? Where do I record ?
How Does It Work ?
Well first of all, you can reach me at firstname.lastname@example.org. We will discuss about your music, your expectation about the drumming, the sound you want, the length of the record, and the schedule. Once we agree on something, all terms will be summarized in a contract, so we all know what will happen. I do refund if I have to cancel, I offer discount if I am late. If you cancel and if I cannot book the spot with an other band however, I will not refund. To book the recording session, I indeed ask for a deposit which is 1/3 of the total rate.
To design the drumming, you can trust me and leave me with a blank page, especially if you like my art. But you can also guide me with some written instructions, or with a drum machine that you want me to follow and interpet.
Once I have learn the music, I record, and I send a stereo preview file for you to give feedback. You like the take ? Perfect ! You want changes ? No problem, my rate include a serie of changes to each song.
And then, when everything is recorded and validate, I send a raw multitrack as soon as the last payment is done.
What Kind Of Files Do I Provide ?
I send a raw multitrack, which has no EQ, compression, reverb etc… but which is already vastly edited, and hence ready for the mixing and mastering process. Tracks are mainly from microphones, only the bass drum might be trigger only depending the music. I have top and bottom snare microphones, hi-hat and ride microphones, overhead microphones, one microphones on each toms, but also a stereo room microphone set up. Cherry on the cake, I record samples of the whole drumkit for each recording, and that is a big plus for the producer 😉 ! Also, for EP and album, my rate include a video to promote the recording, and I usually uplaod this video on my social Network, Facebook, Youtube and Instagram. Total combine amount of view can be from 5K to 50K views and more if the music please my followers. Remember that I have around 11K followers on Facebook, 20K on Youtube, and 5K on Instagram.
Where Do I Record ?
It’s been only a year, but now I do record in a professionnal studio, my own one, the « Nostromo Studio ». The recording room and the control room have been designed by an acoustic architect to have the best recording quality possible ! You like big drums sound ? No problem I can have tones of reverberation. You want something intimate ? No problem, I can choke the room with absorption panels 😉 ! Also I do have some backline, and I can make different drums configuration to match the sound you need, no matter what kind of music you are making !
