Drum Tracking Studio Auckland

Drum recording room.

We get – it’s 2022 and pretty much every muso who wants to has their own home studio setup with more than enough quality to record their own vocals/guitars/bass etc.

But not everyone has enough space, mics, channels or noise tolerance amongst neigbours to record drums.

Programming drums can be great, but sometimes you just need live drums on a track.

 

We will record your drummer with their kit or supply a kit and drummer if needed, then give you the wav files to take home and keep working on your project.

 

Combine the best of both worlds where home product combines with a dedicated live tracking room for your favourite drum kit.

 

*We can record other instruments too if needed.

The studio can record up to 18 tracks individually. A common scenario is to track drums and bass in the live room while tracking guitar or vocals in the isolation booth.

House drum kit is a (ca) 1967 Premier kit with Ludwig Super Sensitive snare available as an option. Other kits can be hired in or you can bring your own.

Bass amps, guitar amps and instruments are available if required.
