Need a drum track that sounds like it was sampled from a 60's or 70's funk, soul, rock or RnB song? I can provide that!
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 room for maximum punch. To help achieve an old school sound I use just two microphones; bass drum & mono overhead. I can do a typical close mic set up if you prefer (please see extras).
Each loop in my video was mixed 4 different ways to give an example of the kinds of grooves and sounds I can create. When you order, choose one of these vibes:
clean - 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.
