My percussion overdubs are of a very high quality, performed with skill and accuracy and suitable for any type of commercial and professional use..
I have recorded tracks for several top producers and have always received great feedback from them (no pun intended)
The studio is built in a sonically treated environment and I use the best microphones and vintage pre-amplifiers available (please see my equipment section for further details)
I do not add any processing either during recording or at the bouncing stage, unless specifically requested.
This will give producers complete freedom and control over the final placement in the track and mixing.
I will need to receive guide tracks in Aiff or Wav Audio format with two bars count-in at least and details of tempo embedded as well as any style and any other specific requirements
Additionally I would like to be provided with a separate click track to be synchronised with the guide track.
I will deliver the finished project as 16bit 44.1Khz Audio files to be synchronised with the original guide track. These will be uploaded onto a dedicated and secure online server to be downloaded by the end user.
I may provide overdubs at 24bit 96Khz if specifically requested, although, in my experience, there is no need for that when recording percussion or drums..
For time sensitive projects, I may be able to deliver the overdubs on a DVD by mail or by express courier.
As a matter of curiosity, I have also been asked to compress my recordings as stereo mp3s at 320 Kbps and transfer them urgently by e-mail apparently without any perceivable sound degradation!
Please note that all overdubs recorded in my studio are copyrighted and therefore subject to a licensing agreement which allows them to be used without restriction only in relation to the song or soundtrack which they were originally created for., without additional payment apart from the fee paid for recording them.
For this reason, my overdubs cannot be used outside that particular context whether in complete or edited form for purposes such as percussion/drum samples, Film or Television sound effects, library music (unless they were originally commissioned for that purpose) or any other use without my written consent and/or further payment.
