I use a mixture of recording equipment and production techniques that create an old school vibe using compression, tape saturation and overdrive.

My drum kit is vintage and I record in a small, dead sounding room for maximum punch.
Each of the 4 one-bar loops in my demo have been mixed 4 different ways to give an example of the kinds of feels and sounds I can create. Let me know which sound you'd like for your track.
- clean - some subtle compression, nothing to heavy handed. Leaves plenty of scope for you to tailor the sound as you wish.
- tape saturation - adds subtle distortion unique to the sound of analogue tape (as used in the 60's and 70's).
- overdriven - the audio is passed through an overdrive effect which narrows the bandwidth and adds crunch.
- extreme - all of the above, with some extra dynamic manipulation to inject maximum energy into the sound of the drum loop.
Send me a copy of your song (which has been recorded to a click track) and I'll record the drums, mix the drums with your preferred vibe and send you a .wav file.
