REMOTE DRUM RECORDING

SOUNDS FROM MY ATTIC

Hi there!

If you are here because you are looking to get drums professionally recorded on your track(s) or project(s), well... you're in the right place!

Having drums recorded remotely offers a degree of versatility and flexibility to the whole process that is not normally achievable through the classic "book a big studio and let's get this done in 2 hours" way.

You get more for your money, you get the drum parts and sounds you were looking for in any genre, less hassle, and a much more detail-oriented approach when you get me to record drums on your project.

HOW DOES IT WORK?

It's all very straight-forward:

Get in contact.

Receive a first take within the first 48h.

Tell me your thoughts on it.

I will work on your directions and you will receive three final takes to choose from.

AND IN MORE DETAIL.

The usual process begins with you getting in touch with me through the form below (or through nunooliveiramusic@gmail.com) to discuss your music and the kind of service you're looking for. This might include you filling me in on the details of your project, your ideas and thoughts on it. I am happy to work on any genre, so don't be shy! We can communicate through email, video call, or whatever way feels best to you.

 

You can send your songs in whatever format works for you (mp3, WAV, MIDI) and include any demo drum parts that exist on your track, if you like. From then on, we will discuss specifics and other technicalities, such as when you are expecting to receive the tracks by, the sample rate of your project, how you would like to receive the drum tracks, and so on.

Next, I'll start working on the drum parts for your songs in the studio and have a few takes sent back within a couple of days. It's up to you whether you'll want me to follow a demo drum track you already have or create something completely fresh. Three revisions will be inclusive for each track which is enough most of the time, so don't be afraid to ask for things to be changed!

 

When you're happy with the drums, I'll export each track individually in WAV format and send them to you via an email link. This will normally include some basic editing, but if you would prefer to receive the raw recordings (or both), this is totally fine. Equally, if you prefer to receive a ready-mixed stereo bounce of the drums, that's not a problem.

 

 If you are using Logic and would prefer to receive the Logic session instead I can do that too. Finally, download your track online and drag the file straight into your DAW.

HOW MUCH DO I CHARGE?

Prices per track are highly-customisable to you, your budget and your project, so they vary depending on the service you are looking for. Discounts are available for multiple track projects.

CUSTOM MIDI DRUM TRACKS.

MIDI drum tracks are an option if you require more electronic based sounds, or if you would rather experiment with different sounds yourself. 

RAW LIVE

DRUM TRACKS.

You will receive up to 3 takes of 10 individual stems (or a stereo mix, or both) in WAV format, completely unmixed for you to drag and drop into your DAW.

MIXED LIVE

DRUM TRACKS.

 Here you will receive a fully edited mix of my live drum tracks, alongside the raw stems (if you wish), mix-ready, for complete flexibility, and halfway to sounding like a finished product.
