Recording true acoustic drums
I am Daniel. I'm a professional drummer and instructor since 1997. Over the last decade, I mostly record drums at a professional level for well-known artists and for different kinds of music with great success. Now I can record in my own recording studio.
All I need from you is an mp3 of your song with any instructions you have on drums. It would be best if your song is recorded to a metronome.
I will send you a stereo mix wav file of my drums for your song.
Send me an email through 'Contact' button above and I'll get back to you.
Contact me through the green button above and let's get to work.
