How It Works

We want the process of enhancing your songs to be as enjoyable and successful as possible, so we’ve put together a simple process to keep you as excited about the drum tracks you’ll receive as we are about recording them for you.

Uploading your songs

1 Upload your tracks here *
2 Fill out the Project Brief here **

* We will require separate, clearly labeled tracks for music (without drums), vocals, programmed / demo drums (if available) and, if there are tempo changes, a midi tempo map. All tracks should be bounced from the very start of your session to ensure they line up in our session and should be recorded to a metronome as tightly as possible. If you have any questions on how to do any of these things please don’t hesitate to contact us.

** Let us know exactly what services you’d like to utilize and all other required information. Please be as specific and thorough as you can with all information to ensure you are totally satisfied with the tracks you receive. Feel free to contact us with any queries or extra information.

Correspondence and Payment


Once we have received your tracks and completed Project Brief we will make sure we have everything we need to start recording your drums. If we require further information we will contact you as soon as possible. You will then receive a PayPal invoice for the full amount. Once payment is received we will send you your tracks within 72 hours. If we can not meet this deadline, we will let you know before proceeding with payment.

What You Get


Real Drum Tracks: You will receive 2 full takes with slight groove variations and a range of fills for you to choose from as you please. Each take will include clearly labeled, individual, consolidated tracks of all microphones used. These will be .WAV files at the Sample Rate specified by you. A typical drum session may include: Kick In, Kick Out, Snare Top, Snare Bottom, Rack Tom, Floor Tom, Hihat, Stereo Overheads, Stereo Rooms, Mono Room. The tracks are moderately processed (EQ & compression) at the tracking stage but we believe it is best to leave the tracks raw for the mix engineer to use them in their own specific way. If you have purchased any of our other services you will receive the appropriate tracks at this time.

Real Percussion Tracks: Mono or stereo .WAV file of each individual instrument consolidated to the session start

Real Drum Sample Tracks: Stereo .WAV file of each individual instrument consolidated to the session start. These are triggered from the live drum tracks for exact alignment and full dynamic range.
