Professional drummer and audio engineer with a background in music production. An extensive collection of equipment and highly proficient in Ableton Live. Highly experienced in playing to a click from many years as a working, gigging drummer in Melbourne.
I'm a professional session drummer based in Melbourne, Australia. I've played professionally in the live music scene in Melbourne since 2011. I'm experienced in many genres, including but not limited to Rock, Pop, Funk, RnB, Soul, Reggae, Jazz and Big Band. I'm also a full-time graphic designer, so I'm accustomed to taking on feedback! My goal is to help you make your track groove.
I have a full studio set up with a 16 channel interface allowing for full close micing of drums. I can offer raw or mixed stems to assist in the mixing process or to help those with less experience in mixing/engineering drums.
My kit is mic'd with an Audix D6 on the kick, close mic SM57/Audix i5 on the snare top/bottom and the toms, as well as a pencil condenser on the hi hats and large diaphragm overheads. Options to close mic other cymbals with additional condensers.
I can also provide samples of the kit for any additional comping/programming.

I have worked with Rob on many different projects and he has always delivered an exceptional product. I would recommend him to anyone seeking a professional session drummer to enrich their recordings. He’s also a great guy; he’s approachable and open to suggestion.
Robbie is incredible - he is diligent and always has a fast turn-around for his tracks. His drum sound is amazing, and he brings tasteful grooves to any genre, making the song come alive. Robbie is my go-to session drummer
Rob has been a session drummer for my projects several times and he is outstanding! He learns the pieces, is organised and efficient and most of all, sounds great! Would highly recommend Rob to anyone looking for a drummer.
