Jason Castellanos on SoundBetter

Hi!! I´m Jason Castellanos and I would love to participate in your project. I can delivery high quality online drum tracks for you, knowing how is the process of making music and be aware of the layers of it, let me be part of the rhythmic foundation of your inspiration!

I´m a profesional graduated drummer, since university I always been focus on drums and how to record it properly.. Been working in the studio as main engineer and as assistant, help me to achieve tips and resources to record the drums the best way possible, it´s my passion make things right and record right the drums for the song (even to admit that maybe, sometimes there is no need of drums)

Born and raised in Latin America, I spent a lot of years touring, recording and performing all around.. including Usa, Europe and now in the Middle East focused recording professional drums.

- Meinl Cymbals (A lot of crashes, rides, splash and effects)
- Remo Drumheads
- Accesories (muffins, dampeners, shakers, BFS, Cympad, etc)
- A lot of snares to try different kind of sounds

What I need it´s your instructions:
1, Vibe, groove, know what kind of sound are you looking for (any tip its welcome from youtube, mp3, souncloud)
2, BPM, Sample Rate and if you have a programmed drum idea it´s also welcome.
3, Communication (I love this, all feedback its received in the process)
4, After I have the first idea recorded, I´ll send to you the mp3 with the drums, you can hear and let me know if you like it.. After we approved I´ll send you the tracks separately (11-14 depends how many toms the song needed)
My Main concern it´s make a profesional work in all areas.

Send me an email through 'Contact' button above and I'll get back to you asap.
