Online Remote Custom Drum Tracks – For Songwriters, Bands or Producers.
Get a real drummer in your music. We all love Superior Drummer, Addictive Drums, Groove Agent or EZ drummer, but we also know that there’s nothing like the sound, feel, power and magic of a real drum take played by a good and creative drummer. A solid, artistic, beautifully sounding drum part is essential to the success of any song.
The problem is that recording drums is a very time consuming and intricate process, and that’s why many musicians give up and look for a cheap and easy answer in virtual drummers.
The Online Sessions are a great alternative and a solution to get you great quality drum tracks, quickly, and at an affordable price, with no hassle.
How it works:
– You can contact Eugenio via email, or on Skype, to discuss your project and what your needs are.
– You send files, via WeTransfer, GoogleDrive, DropBox etc
– You get an Mp3 rough mix of your track with drums mixed in, for you to approve it or to ask for any changes.
– Once you are satisfied you proceed with the payment and you get your final session files.
– It takes an average of 48 hours for the whole process to complete.
– A pre-production. The better the quality, the better the final results. In order to perform at his best, Eugenio needs tracks (or at least a guide track) played to a click. The sound quality is not that important. Accuracy matters, in order to make it all groove together and receive the best feeling drum tracks. However, if your tracks are still a draft, Eugenio can use them just as a reference and can perform the song to a click, so that you can add your final tracks later.
– An idea of what you want. You can send references, indications, descriptions. The more details the better, in terms of style, arrangement and sound. It’s important to communicate before the process begins so that there’s a clear vision of what the final tracks should sound like.
– You can provide scratch drum tracks or programmed drums (or even drum charts), especially if you have in mind specific patterns you wish to be played. Or you can ask Eugenio to create drum parts for you, based on your indications.

– 3 takes of your song. The tracks will be unprocessed and unmixed.
– High quality Audio Files in your preferred format: AIFF or WAV, or a Pro Tools Session.
– Individual files of each track, clearly labeled and numbered, ready for you to mix. This way you can import the tracks anywhere you like and also chose to use all of them or only the ones you want.
– Up to 2 Revisions. Revisions are included as a necessary part of the creative process. Although with 3 takes your needs should be covered, if you feel you’d like anything to be tweaked a bit, you can ask for it and get it exactly as you like it.
– BONUS: One mixed and processed composite take, created by Eugenio, that you can use anyway you like.
– WAVV or AIFF files of your pre-production. Each track has to be consolidated (starting at measure 1, beat 1).
