Emmanuel Calle on SoundBetter

I will compose and record a tailored drum part for your song. By all means possible I will try to avoid your track having a generic drum part. I`ll write something unique, far more special than a backbeat on 2 and 4 and an occasional drum fill. This is what earned me my recording artist reputation.

I work mainly as a Recording Session Drummer in South America and touring drummer in the USA.

I am a big fan of getting as involved as possible in the music I work on. I put together a different drum kit for every song I record and design my sound texturing accordingly.

I´ll give as much as 5 revisions and samples of different feels I may provide to a certain song. Nevertheless, if you are not pleased I`ll keep working until we find what you want, but it rarely takes more than 3 takes/revisions.

Im always ready to work, whether I have to track drums in a one-day-rush for pre-productions or long recording processes from scratch.

I´ll have you choosing takes and feels before you know it.

Reach out and tell me about your project,

Let´s make it happen.

  1. Review by Marcel S.

    I am very happy with Emmanuel for his predisposition, his quality as a drummer and his enthusiasm for the project. There has been very good communication and we will surely repeat in future projects.
    This guy has it all!
    Do not hesitate to hire him. He will do everything possible to make him feel satisfied and that in music production is VERY important.
    Thanks Emmanuel!

    I've produced 3 albums with Emma's drums. He's a complete PRO. Fast learner, versatile chops, and great attitude. All of his recordings sound good and are ready to mix, which is a breath of fresh air considering what's out there on Sound Better.

    Bonus points: Although he doesn't mention this in his profile, he's able to handle odd time signatures like no one's business. Pleasantly surprised!

    Emma is without a doubt one of the most professional musicians I've ever worked with. When I sent him a demo of my most technical song, he sent me a picture of beautiful hand-written notation for the whole song, the next day. During rehearsals, I was very intense about details and he was very receptive to all of my input. When I asked for his interpretation on some parts, he was full of tasteful ideas and happy to work with me to get exactly what I wanted. And when we recorded, I didn't have to edit timing or replace ANYTHING, which is pretty much unheard of in my style of music.

    Emma is a super attentive drummer and guy. Each song he has drummed for me he has sent me regular audio updates of the take he has tried that day until we are both happy. A very inclusive experience. Tasty drums and fills. Great chat. All of these things are important to me and why I regard him on a high level .
    Try your drums with Emmanuel :-)
    Best Wishes Pete (songwriter from England)
