This past weekend I had the pleasure of engineering two drum recording sessions with my friend, drummer Steve Kefalas. We recorded songs for two artists, Vanessa Bley, and Kylie Hughes. In addition to being an absolute blast working on the respective material, Steve and I are getting some great drum sounds out of his LA based studio.
Here’s a handy trick if you ever end up working on a session where a snare bottom track was not recorded. All you need is a snare drum, a mic, and a speaker or guitar amp. (A reamp or “backwards DI” can be very useful as well).
A short tutorial on how to use the beat detection engine in Digital Performer. We show you how easy it is to slice up a short drum loop.
I just finished the new I, Parasite EP, A Diminished Torrow and it’s currently awaiting mastering. More on that soon.
I also finished a remix (as I, Parasite) for Alien Element “Big & Tall (Road Kill)”. I’m not sure when that will be released.
And finally I’ve just started mixing the second release from Audio Resistance, Checkpoint Poverty. While I’m working on this, I highly recommend you check out their debut album:
