Add-On Session Services

Add value to your session by selecting any of these additional options for your song or session. All Add-Ons except Pre-Mixing, Note-for-Note Transcription, and MIDI Transcription are included (if requested) for Custom Master drum tracking session packages.

Percussion Overdubs & Loop Creation - $25/song

Chris can add anything from shakers, tambos, and found object grooves to programmed or live-layered loops. He can provide multiple tracks or edit them into a stereo stem. Whatever you need! Included in Custom Master sessions. This add-on is not necessary for percussion only sessions.

Hit Samples - $25/song

Get medium and hard hit samples of each drum and cymbal for each unique kit setup in your session. If you use samples in your mix to augment the drums, nothing sounds more natural and complimentary than isolated samples from the same kit. Included in Custom Master sessions.

Beat Detection or Grid Editing - $50/hour

Whether using pre-quantized loops or keeping in step with modern production trends, sometimes you just need drums to be “on the grid.” If that's the case, never hesitate to ask. Assuming a single take on each song, Chris can usually edit 2-3 songs per hour. Included (if desired) in Custom Master sessions.

Note-for-Note Transcription - $75/song

Do you feel your programmed patterns and fills are things you cannot live without? Chris will do his best to reproduce a programmed drum part note-for-note.

Pre-Mixing - $50/song

Draw on Chris' extensive mixing experience! In addition to your high quality raw drum tracks, you receive mixed drum stems that further tailor the recorded tracks to your song and save you work in your mix!

MIDI Transcription - $75/song

Get your drum tracks converted to a MIDI performance. Great for making groove loops for demo songs when used with any number of drum VSTis.
