AUDIO EDITING

This includes guitar editing, bass editing, drum editing, vocal editing, pitch correction, etc. 

DRUM SAMPLES

When mixing this type of music, drum samples typically play a large role in the final sound. I love to use the natural drums wherever possible, but this is entirely dependant on external factors that are out of my control. Creating usable natural drum tones requires an audio engineer that knows his room and what mics to use. The drum kit itself needs to be a decent quality and it needs to have brand new drum heads that have been broken-in and tuned properly.

The drummer needs to be a hard hitter, with a damn near machine-like consistency. Honestly, there are very few drummers in the world that are able to pull this off. If this is the case with your music, it will be my pleasure to keep the drums as natural as possible.

In most circumstances, I will blend the drum samples in with the natural drums in order to create “the sound” that this genre is known for.

In rare cases, I will 100% sample-replace the drum shells.

RE-AMPING

Guitar Re-amping

First things first; if you are using a guitar, you may well have spent a great deal of time coming up with your own tones.

As a fellow musician, I respect that 100%.

But there’s just one problem: those sounds were created in a “vacuum”.

This means that whilst your tones may sound AMAZINGby themselves
(or in a rough mix), they were created without any context of the other elements that might be in the final mix (including drum and bass tones).

This is where my experience and re-amping services come into play.

At no additional cost, I will work with you to find tones that best fit your final mix. This may be as simple as tweaking your initial sound,
or it may be a case of creating new tones entirely.

Either way, we always work with what best fits the final mix.

Bass Re-amping

The same rule applies for bass re-amping: whilst we can always
explore tones you have, it comes down to getting the best result
in the final mix.

What about bass tones created in a tracking studio?

We can look at tones created in a tracking studio but they aren’t always
usable. I prefer to always keep a bass DI available for re-amping.

Pro Tip:  Always use new strings when recording bass! 

Old strings can have a massive negative impact on your final bass tone
(far more so than with a guitar). New strings will help your music shine.
