Recording

Here at Jeremy Sibson Performance & Education we also offer a remote recording studio service. Clients can send their tracks to us and we will record the drum or percussion parts and send them back for your final mix and mastering.

A single stereo .wav file is preferable with either an embedded click track or with the tempo provided. A short descriptor of the style, drum choices, tuning, or any other ideas is always a great help. I will record the tracks and provide 3 variations for you and send the tracks back as individual stems or as a Protools session. I also use Reaper and can send in the format too. The tracks will be raw data with no FX/EQ.

Pricing is generally by the hour ($75 per hour) but negotiation will be considered on larger projects. Here are some photos of the recording studio.
