Are you looking for a drummer to record your song, EP or album ?

This is something I can do for you. Since 2015, this is what I’m doing, and I have learn a lot about drum recording… You can take a look to the “videos” and the “Discography” sections to find some of my previous work, and you’ll find a list of my gear in the “Gear” section !

So how does this work ?

I will spend time learning your songs, and if I can stricly follow a well done drum machine, I can can also propose alternative ideas, or create a whole new drumming from a blank page for your musical project.

Do you want drums part in order to write guitars on them ? This is also possible !

Once I know what to play, or when to jam on the riffs, I record drums. Then I’ll send you a preview stereo file, with a raw sound. You like it ? Great ! You want to change some parts ? No problem, one time per song, I can go back behind the drumkit and make the changes you want. Of course, I’ll always be there to discuss with you, and make sure we have something coherent at the end.

And then ? I take care of a massive part of the audio editing. That mean I’ll correct all the small mistakes which are okay for live, but not for studio. Depending the kind of music, I’ll do a very strict editing, or I’ll let the drumming live a bit more. But also, real drums tracks shouldn’t be a struggle to use when you do the production by yourself. Hence, I pre-mix the tracks so they are as easy to use as a drum machine. You’ll hire a super pro-sound engineer to make the sound ? Don’t worry, I don’t take any direction during pre-mixing, I just do the mandatory stuff so the tracks sound well together, but a lot of processing can still be done to achieve the sound you want. What exactly am I doing ? Well small EQing (never more than 3/4db boost/cut-, low cut, high cut, using SSL EQ emulation, small dynamic correction with SPL Transient Designer and Rupert Neve Portico 5043 compressor/limitor (both hardware). Then, I make trigger tracks for each drums, that are provided in addition to microphones tracks, so you can choose your own blend of mic/trigg, and these trigger track can be used to control 100% accurate gate on all microphones tracks ! By the way, I’m already taking care of the gate processing on toms track, as this is extremely important…then on the snare, you can do as you prefer !

For each session, I give specific samples of my drumkit, recorded during the same session, so you can change the samples of the trigger track using your own mix of my drums.

You want a video for promotion ?

No problem, I can shot some footage when I’m recording. If you have want a specific song from your record, let me know !

Of course, I can upload the video on my Youtube channel (more than 12k subscribers) and on my facebook artist page (more than 10k likes), and also, on my instagram page (around 5k followers) to promote your music.
