Session Drummer/Remote Mixing

Diego Silva on SoundBetter

Recording of professional drums at your disposal. The combination of room acoustics, high quality preamps, microphones and instrument makes the difference. That is why many artists choose me to record the drums of their projects.

Since I started playing drums at the age of 14, at the same time, I started to experiment with music recording.
After almost 17 years of learning, practicing and working on this, I record drums and mix songs professionally.
Every new project or song, I take with great exciting to provide all the best I have. When I listen to the song I immediately start producing the drums in my head, I imagine wich song fits the song best, the correct fills and the right feel to make it sound great. After that I record the idea, I send it to the artist to listen to and I await for his or her appraisal to make adjustments in case it is needed. And that's it, so click on "Contact" and let's work on your project.

Interview with Diego Silva

  1. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  2. A: My studio has a room of 3 x 4 meters and is acoustically treated with bass traps, absorbent panels and diffuser. The sound that is achieved is really warm without distortions of bass or treble. The signal processing from each single microphone passes through an analog console to sound with a unique quality that an interface with preamp included does not achieve it. I can also choose other previews that are a bit more transparent like the Presonus Digimax FS, DS audio (API) for the snare drum or Symetrix 528 for the bass drum. All of these combined at a professional level can be adjusted accordingly to the required sound for your project.

  3. Q: What do you bring to a song?

  4. A: I bring to the song every thing of my ears feeling. If i feel that groove is that the song request or the client request, so that's it. If the song request another thing how a break or a fill just i play that and then i do a fast mixing and play the song and i lisen if is that OK

  5. Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?

  6. A: Other drummers that inspire me are: Dave Weckl, Steve Gadd, Gavin Harrison, Kirk Covington, David Garibaldi, Quest Love, Ziggy Modeliste, and many others...

  7. Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.

  8. A: The work I usually do is record Rock, Pop and Jazz Fusion drums in my own studio and in other studios in Argentina. I'm also a sound engineer and I record other instruments to make a whole song. I also dedicate myself to drum doctor for other drummers. As a mix engineer I do work for songs of Rock, Jazz Fusion and Rock pop.
