I record using DW drum sets, Paiste Cymbals, and an extensive collection of modern and vintage snare drums.
If the composer, artist or writer is unable to come to my studio, files can be exchanged using my ftp site or dropbox. Once the drums have been recorded, I will send the individual tracks back recorded flat so you can balance and EQ the drums to fit the song.
I can also include a set of tracks processed (EQ, gates and compression) giving the client the option of using either.
Sequenced drums and percussion is also an option. Using Toontrack Superior drums, Kontakt 4, Motu Mach 5 libraries, and other third party sound pallets, there are endless choices.
