“Incredibly precise and controlled speed metal drumming of the likes of which I’ve never experienced.” – Devin Townsend
“Having Samus play drums on my album completely took the project to another level musically. The tracks I received were some of the best drumming I’ve ever heard and he really took the time to understand the songs and add things I didn’t even know the songs needed. He is without a doubt the best drummer I’ve ever worked with and a true professional!” – Andy Gillion of Mors Principium Est.
“It’s the kind of drum performance that stands out because it seems so well-attuned to what the songs need, never feeling the compulsion to hoard all the attention for itself, but still vital to what’s happening in the surrounding music.” – No Clean Singing
Same rate as drums.
Additional Drum Mixing
I will mix the drums even further (or mix your pre-recorded drums) by adding multiple instances of compression and EQ.
This will add “fat beef” to the drums.
Send me your pre-recorded tracks and I give it my best mix. This includes mastering too.
Price will vary on several things including drum sampling, guitar re-amping, editing/quantizing, MIDI, how many tracks etc.
$40-160 per song
This is the icing on the cake of your overall final mix.
Adding more compression, final EQ adjustments, widening the stereo field, and a nice volume boost.
$40 per song
Anywhere from editing to mixing to writing. (Drums or Keyboards/Synth)
I can take your drum MIDI and run it through Toontrack high quality samples. No additional editing or processing – $25 per song
Have no knowledge of drums? I can write your drum parts for you – $30 per minute of drumming.
Via Skype, I can help critique your playing/technique, give personalized tips to get your chops up, and provide you with some useful theory.
Or you can just ask me a million questions.
