Max Saidi on SoundBetter

As the leading drum recording service on the internet for the past 8 years, my experience of recording 100’s of tracks for musicians and producers around the world means you can be guaranteed killer drum tracks that will take your songs to the next level – that’s a promise!

My name's Max and I'm an experienced recording drummer who's played on countless tracks for many different musicians - from UK songwriters to hit-US Producers. With my years of experience recording in studios such as legendary Abbey Road and many others, I believe I can provide you with drum tracks you'll love!

I’m extremely passionate about recording drum tracks with great groove and feel, and not just churning through as many tracks in one go as I can. I never take on more work than I can manage, sometimes this can lead to slightly longer turnaround times during busy periods, but trying to squeeze in sessions leads to lower quality drum tracks and, while that might be an approach for some drummers out there, my goal is quality above all else.

With pro-studio recording gear and a selection of drums and cymbals to hand, I can get the right sound for your project. I'm happy to play parts exactly, but if you're not sure what you want we can work together to create something you're super happy with!

Please don't hesitate to get in touch and we have a chat about your project :)

    Max is a great drummer, really fast turn around, totally up for doing revisions to get what you need! Second time I've used him, wont be the last!

  3. Review by Joseph J Lawrence

    Simply put, Max is amazing! The best drummer I have worked with by miles. The speed of which he operates, matched with his incredible customer service, is one that goes unrivalled as far as I am concerned. After a few back and forth emails in regards to my requirements (to which he was unbelievably patient with me) he got to work. And in no time at all and a quick and easy payment method, I had my hands on one hell of a drum track. I would seriously recommend Max to anyone looking for serious drumming talent to accompany their tracks. Perfect. 10/10.

  4. Review by Jonathan C, Guitarist, Leicester, UK

    Max's service is second to none! I needed real groove and rock drumming to pull the song along and give it life. I'd looked at online drummers in the past but hadn't taken the plunge. As I couldn't get what I wanted from the MIDI drummer I did a search and found Max. I wrote to him and told him what I was looking for and got a reply within hours. After agreeing to go ahead I actually had the mix back the next day!!! Amazing! This sounds even better now I've dropped the individual tracks into my DAW! Absolutely delighted and will be using him again and again!

    Having worked with Max on a regular basis in a live environment, I cannot recommend him highly enough. He has an incredible attention to detail when it comes to his sound and ensuring he has the right tools for the job. He’s easy to work with, a great drummer who very obviously has a passion for his work and a lovely guy.

  6. Review by Peter W.

    I've used another Online Session Drummers before, and the quality of Max's playing, and the audio quality of the raw tracks, is head and shoulders above what I previously got. Worth every penny.

  7. Review by Nick

    I found Max by chance after a google search; I’m so glad I found him.
    I have used Max’s remote drum services several times. I’m always very happy with the style of drumming and the quality of the audio recordings.
    The engineer who masters my tracks always comments on the high end audio of the whole drum mix.
    Looking forward to hearing more tracks drummed for me.
    Thank you Max!
