I had the pleasure of recording some live drums for this album with my friend Steve Kefalas. Check it out!
The drums were recorded by me, and performed by Steve Kefalas.
Los Angeles is a place you find yourself, lose yourself and forget everything else. For Vanessa Bley it was the turning point for the rhythm of her music. Watch how her City of Dream serves as a source of inspiration for a new sound.
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.
Errr, you’re sitting where I need to mix.
I admit I don’t know this band, but Allaire Studios is just so beautiful – what a great environment to record in.
